Theirs to Keep (Tangled Hearts Trilogy #1)
Even though the book started out very promising, I lost interest after the first couple of chapters. I had a hard time connecting with Elle. While I understand that she went through something very traumatic that she can't remember, it is frustrating that she continues to live in denial and refuses to come to terms with her past. Seeing as how the first 40% of the book covers a time span of at least six months, I was really hoping to see more growth from her character.

The beginning of this story starts off CRAZY good. Elle is literally crawling through an alleyway, she is wet, freezing and scared out of her mind. She can’t remember who she is and what had happened, except that she must hide, beca ...more
When Theirs to Keep begins, Elle has been beaten so badly that she’s bruised and bloody. She’s also cold and lost and has absolutely no memory beyond waking up on a riverbank. All she wants—all she knows—is that she needs shelter, someplace warm, even if it means she has to commit breaking and entering to get it. That and she can’t let him find her, whoever he is.
Cade Walker, owner of a private security firm, responds to an alarm at one of his locations. Merrick Sullivan...more
Theirs To Keep is the first book in the Tangled Hearts Trilogy from the amazing Maya Banks and i LOVED it, LOVED it, LOVED it.
In my opinion Maya Banks is the best author when comes down to menage books, and i can tell you the reason why as well. She has the ability to give life to every single character, to have his own individuality and make them blend with each other and create a beautiful love story.
It's the story of

When Cade Winslow and Merrick Sullivan find Elle hiding in the cabinet of a gun store, they know they can’t just walk away from the fragile woman with no memory of who she is or who tried to kill her. Merrick is training for the title shot in the heavyweight division as a mixed martial artist and can’t afford distractions, but neither can he turn his back on the woman who tugs at his heartstrings.
This story begins with Merrick and Cade.
Merrick is a MMA fighter. But together he and Cade own a security company. They have been friends since grade school. Really you could say they are more like brothers than friends. Cade is part of Merrick MMA support team.
Merrick is training to become MMA Champion.
On night they got a security call from a gun store they monitor. Instead of calling the cops to meet them they decide to investigat ...more
This was an okay read for me. I'm all for damsel-in-distress stories but Elle really bothered me in this one. I understand she feels like a charity case, but do something to change that if you feel like you're such a burden. Even when she makes some progress in her life, she'll have a memory of her past and becom ...more
The only thing that saved this book for me was the last 15%. Things were just starting to open up with Elle's back story and it sounds like book 2 will hopefully give ...more
I love Maya Banks. I would read dirt if that’s what she wished to publish. THEIRS TO KEEP was wonderful. That’s not to say I didn’t have a few faults with it, but overall, I can’t wait for the rest. I could even say I’m even more excited now.
Elle has only a sense of her past and it’s telling her to avoid detection at all cost because He is after her.
When Cade and Merrick come into her life, they instantly want to protect her after all she’s been through, but in the back o ...more
Theirs to Keep hooked me from the first page. The story begins with Elle, bruised and battered, seeking shelter in a gun shop. The gun shop is monitored by Cade and Merrick’s security firm and they are stunned ...more
I'm not sure what I think about this. I just finished last night so I am going to give myself some time to think on it. The book worked for me on a couple levels. I have a weak spot for damsel in distress stories as well as characters that suffer from amnesia (sad but true!) so the major premise of the story was a win for me. I thought the book was sweet and romantic but definitely lacking in some of Maya Bank's signature heat. I can't believe I'm saying this about a Maya Banks book, but I think ...more

Hot. Hot. Hot.
They saved her. They BOTH want her. What are they supposed to do?
Duh! If 2 is better than 1, then of course 3 is better than 2!!
But... and there is a but... She has no idea who the flip she is. I understand that she is traumatized. Who wouldn't be? But having some PTSD moment every chapter got pretty old.
It was so intense!! Every bit! The suspense! The training! The... *cough* *cough* steam ...more
I've found Maya Banks to be a very readable author, she is great at keeping me interested and making me relate to her characters. That said the beginning of this book, the part that sets up Elle's situation, dragged a bit for me. Elle was also more of a victim than I am usually comfortable with. But as the story rolled on everything gained momentum, Elle included, and I found myself engaged. As usual Ms Banks gave us great male characters (I love the KGI seri ...more

I know it really can't be helped sometimes, but Maya's books come out pretty slow. DON'T KILL ME!!!
so if I read this one, the next book won't be out till a while (I'm guessing).... so I guess I'll wait, then to die of curiosity to know what happens next.
I liked it - but I really wanted to know what the other 2 books will be about - or if this one was a stand alone thing - which it is NOT apparantly :)
It was a bit slow - a bit unsexy for the first 60% and the guys just talk to much ... just like in the breathless trilogy :) guys do NOT talk like that!
BUT I can't wait for book 2 :) I MB ...more
