But when his older sister’s friend comes back from the past, he may just have the chance to turn some of his adolescent fantasies into reality.

3.25 but I'm Rounding Way the Hell Up Stars

I'm going short and sweet with this review because I'm waaaaaay behind on my ARC reviews and something's gotta give!

I loved the first 25% of the book. Marcus might be a first class man whore, but he's a funny as shit man whore and he can definitely bring the snarky banter. Tessa and Marcus had a cute early history together and I loved the attraction between the two.

Somewhere around the 30% mark this book started to get slow. It's still a well written
Keep Me just couldn't 'keep me' interested. No pun intended. From the: characters, to their situations, to the unnecessary drama, and Marcus+Tessa falling in love... everything just didn't really mesh for me.

Tessa is a very good mother but I didn't like how getting involved with Marcus made her. She pretty much acted like a lovestruck teenager who acted irrationally around her new love interest and it annoyed me.

And Marcus, how can a seasoned manwhore go from screwing every woman left to right

Oh my goodness. This guy made me swoon…a lot! Marcus Grayson was a hot and cocky, tattooed bad boy with an attitude to boot. Far from being a saint, let me tell you, but he sure had a heart of gold. Being unattached and single was all he wanted...unti

50 Shades of Grayson

OK, yes I am blatantly ripping off from that sex book AND an episode of The Vampire Diaries - though in all fairness to TVD, it was Grayson Gilbert and this one have Marcus Grayson. So yes, I own my steal.

I read Ms. Andrews first book “Man of my Dreams”, a story about what constitutes cheating, what kind of cheating is worse, and how to save a marriage that shouldn’t be allowed to fall apart. I was very impressed and enjoyed it a lot.

He thinks he is living the dream; life can’t get better than it is right now. He doesn’t understand why people like his best friend Beck would want to settle down and have a committed relationship.

This book surprised me. With the way the first chapter started, I didn't think there was going to be anyway I was going to like underwear model Marcus Grayson. He was arrogant, cocky and was a complete douche when it came to women. He wielded his dick like it was a sword and he used it to cut a very wide path everywhere he went. But Faith Andrews made like like Marcus. Made me want Marcus to fall (and fall hard) for the girl. Made me jump on the Marcus bandwagon and help him fight to prove his w ...more
Loved it! Love the older woman/younger man take, although Tessa wasn't that much older than Marcus. Favorite was reading Marcus' POV and knowing his thoughts and feelings. He's/was a manwhore, but an adorable one at could you not love him? Tessa was sweet, broken, but not needy, you could understand why she was hesitant to just let go and be with Marcus. I'm glad there wasn't a lot of drama between them, though.
It got to the point where I wanted to deck Riley, but she redeemed herself

Tessa just moved back to her hometown with her infant son. She's on her way to work when she stops for a cup of coffee. She hears a familiar voice come up behind and turns around and locks eyes with her best friends from school's younger brother Marcus. Sexy, tatted up model Marcus.

I liked this story so much.

The main characters are really likeable and our Hero,Marcus, is also really lickable xD

This is not the usual friends to lover story and neither it is a second chance at love but in a weird and nice way it is both of them and I've really enjoyed it.

Keep Me was a sweet, feel-good read that kept a smile on my face and made my heart race. Although it did delve into issues that were deeper than I had expected, those scenes added an extra layer of depth and intensity. At the end of the book, I closed my kindle feeling happy that I got to stumble into Marcus and Tessa’s world.

I tangled my hands in her now-messy hair, and whispered in her ear, “You. Are. Addicting.” - Marcus

Holy shizz ladies! Keep Me was an adventure. You’ve already read the synopsis, so you know what it’s about. What you don’t know, yet, is how incredibly awesome Marcus really is.

Tess is finally going back to work after having her baby and escaping the wrath of her horrible ex-husband. It’s time for her to get her life back and find herself again. Zack was controlling, belittling and abusive but, that doesn’t even begin to cover what he did to Tess while they were married. With that finally behin

Marcus is a man-whore. He'll tell you himself. His sister knows it. He keeps screwing her friends and then they aren't her friends any longer. He just got worse when their mother died four years ago.

Tessa is finally getting her life together after an abusive marriage that left her self-confidence almost non-existent. She's starting a new job and who does she run into? Little Marcus Grayson, her ex BFF's younger brother. The one who followed them around and would shoot spitballs in her hair. God

Keep me is a fantastic book about second chance love with a little bit of a twist. Tessa Bradley is a single mom who just came out of an abusive marriage and is trying to start a new life for her and her son. Marcus Grayson is her best friend's goofy younger brother who grew up to be a devastatingly gorgeous underwear model and all around player. A random meeting has them both feeling a strong connection and not quite knowing what to do about it.

Faith Andrews easily became one of my favorite authors with Man of My Dreams and now she's blown me away with Keep Me. Her writing flows gracefully and effortlessly, sucking me in to the story and not letting me go. Marcus is smokin' HOT, knows it and uses it, but from the day he runs across his sister's friend Tessa at Starbucks, he's one tatted up bad boy on a mission.

What's not to love about an alpha, tattooed, motorcycle riding, underwear model right?? I was drawn into this book from the get-go. This is a dual POV book, which is my fav, and the author did an awesome job with Marcus' POV. I couldn't get enough of it.

This book had the perfect balance of witty dialogue, steamy scenes and some tear-jerking moments. I liked both the characters individually and together and Marcus' arc throughout the book was set at the pe

4 Hearts

I loved Marcus Grayson. Self-proclaimed man-whore, model and HOT! Unfortunately he has a thing where he likes to hook up with his older sister’s friends and usually ends up ruining their friendship. He really does have a great heart he just needed to find someone to show it to.

Tessa Bradley one of Marcus’s sister’s best friends growing up. Lost contact with his sister during her horrible marriage. Ran into Marcus one day at a coffee shop and the rest was history…

This was my first Faith Andrews, I had the books I just hadn't read them yet...sue me. Well, the jokes on me, I didn't realize what I had been missing.

I needed more from this one. More connection. More something. More Cowbell. The story wasn't bad. It was a good premise. Just didn't hit it out of the park for me.

Marcus is a sexy underwear model who has a different gal in his bed or up against a wall every night. But not all night. Never all night and never twice. But he's a nice guy. A Man Whore with a Heart.

This was an excellent book! Ladies you need to meet Marcus Grayson you will fall head over heels for his man whoring self. The things he says and thinks cracked me up. Marcus is a playboy, he is only in to one night stands or a couple of hour stands and is not interested in anything that would even remotely fall into the relationship category. Then we have Tessa Bradley she is Marcus’s sister’s childhood friend who is a sin

So here's a clear warning to those who want to give this book a chance: You might want to clear a couple of hours to read this book because once you've started you won't be able to stop. This was such a great book I just couldn't put it down. This is a book about love and second chances. The characters were interesting and I loved that there are two point of views.
