I really did enjoy the storyline, there were just a few parts though that got my frustration level up. This would be thanks to the heroine Emily, during the second half of the book she became one of those heroine's that held on to her grudge for just too long. Also, she is so wanting to be independent, but to me she came across as cold at some points. Logan tried so very hard to earn her forgiveness; but it was like talking to a brick wall!
I don't really want to get into the storyline too much as I went into this pretty much blind, and I found that it upped the suspense for me. There is some dark to this romance, but it isn't as dark as some of the other books that I have read. The romance is almost cheesy at times; but I enjoyed it. How can you not fall in love with a guy who is not only an illegal fighter; but a lead singer in a band too! I enjoyed getting to know his band members as well, nad there are a few that will be getting a book too and I can't wait! Next up is Emily's friend, Kat and band member, Ream! Those two are going to be explosive together; and even better is the fact that Kat has some mystery surrounding her and her past.
All in all, this is a great beginning to an intriguing series. I am fully hooked, and I just can't wait to learn more about the Tear Asunder's band members! Not only are the main characters lovable, but the side characters are fascinating as well! Nashoda Rose is a new author for me, but one that I am enjoying discovering! Next up is Ream and Kat! This is going to be one heck of a story...I can already tell! Bring it on!...more
I need to say this before I say anything else: I Love you Kenya Wright!!!LOL It has never been a secret that I have wanted to live inside this authorsI need to say this before I say anything else: I Love you Kenya Wright!!!LOL It has never been a secret that I have wanted to live inside this authors head since the first book I read of hers a few years back. I think Kenya is brilliant and her imagination is so creative that it is impossible for me not to admire her. When I first saw the cover of this book, I thought that it was going to be hard core erotica, maybe a threesome, and mostly just hardcore sex. I have no idea why I thought that, but I did! Instead, I once again was blown away by Kenya's talent and became immediately absorbed in a unique storyline that was enjoyable and full of substance.
This is a story about two rich,bored, and selfish brothers; who have nothing better to do than play with woman's lives carelessly. They call it a game, and the object is to see which brother can make the woman targeted fall in love with them. Once the woman's heart is engaged, that is when they break it and the more she begs the better the victory. It is extremely heartless and rude if you ask me, and I wasn't impressed with Freddy and Max no matter how hot they were. Then one day they come across a new challenge; her name is Dawn and she turns the tables on them. Dawn is an extremely independant woman who doesn't take crap from nobody, and she turns the game around on these brothers. The seducers suddenly become the ones that are being seduced, and I have to say that I enjoyed every single minute of watching them squirm! I will also add that Dawn is a heroine that most women are going to love. She is not one of those heroines that lose her identity and lie back and spread her legs for a stud. Oh no, she makes the stud get down on his knees and do the begging! It was such a pleasure watching Max and Freddy not know what the heck they were going to do about this sudden attraction they had to this unique woman.
You see, the name of the game changed because one of the bros accidentally spilled the beans to Dawn about how they play with women's hearts. With her being aware of the game she made dang sure she would not trust these spoiled rich boys. She has already had her heart broken by a wealthy man, and she will not ever put her heart on the line again. The ironic part in all of this is the fact that especially in Freddy's case, the game no longer holds the same appeal. Freddy is beginning to feel some foreign feelings about Dawn, and he is unsure exactly what to do or where to go with them.
"I want to be lost in you for several hours. I want to destroy you until you can't see or think about anything else but me. I have to command your body and capture your soul."--Freddie
Sounds like an interesting storyline, doesn't it?! Well, it is; and there is even more! I don't want to give any more away though, so all I will say is that both Freddy and Max get way more than they bargained for. There are also some more reveals when it comes to the bros, and not all is fun and games with them. In fact, one of them has a serious problem. Will he be able to overcome it? Does Dawn give in to them? Or does she pick just one of them? There are so many uncertainties, and all I can say is that I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a great book that is highly entertaining!
This is definitely one of those books that I can see being overlooked. I think it would be sad if others didn't give this one a chance. It is truly an enjoyable read, and its amusing watching the brothers wine and dine Dawn, and work so hard to have her. There isn't tons of sex in this book; but there is some. The sex that is included in here is hot! Kenya knows how to write a smoking hot love scene, and it just enhances an already highly great read. So to all of you readers out there who are in a bit of a slump and don't know what to read next..Give this gem a try, I am thinking you won't be disappointed. It is so nice to find a book that doesn't fall into the same pattern as so many of the others are in lately. I am glad I got to read a book with a fresh new idea, and I can't wait for the next book in this series. One more thing: there is a bit of a cliffie!!It wasn't one that left me mad; however I am very eager to get the next book in my hot little hands!! (hint hint!!)
Thank you Kenya Wright for gifting me a copy of "Theirs to Keep!" I loved every word of it, and now I want more!! LOL♥...more
