Soulmates. Manipulative best friend. Broken hearts. Judgy parents. Suspense/murder. This book was free on Kindle, hence i recommend it for a short, angsty read. Not much depth into the characters and the pace was super fast but i guess its acceptable since the story was about two soul mates reconnecting after 6 years apart.

There are no words.

And when I say that I don't mean in good way. When I read the five star reviews I couldn't wait to read Keeping Her. When I finished the book all I could do was shake my head in stunned shock and ask myself how could anyone give it five stars. From the very beginning I knew the book was a waste of money. I just didn't feel any chemistry between the H and H. Then there was the story line. The plot sounded really good when I read it before I bought the book and for the author t

I apparently had bought this book on my kindle app and supposedly read it at one time but I don't recall it. Which seems weird because I think I'd remember reading this crap!

The H said he always loved her blah blah blah but had no problem having a OW give him a blowup right in front of his bedroom window while the h knownly witnessed it.

I quit reading it at the 54% point.

Between her just accepting him bsck and the boredom while reading it I just couldn't finish it!
I really liked this book, though it was really angsty because of a huge miscommunication at the beginning of the book. It really did unsettle me that Julia married someone else when she knew that her soul mate was Brian. I felt a little betrayed by her. Thank goodness the author didn't go into detail about their sex life as a married couple and that they never had kids or were trying for kids. I also hated how Brian (view spoiler) ...more

I have waited forever to get my hands on Keeping Her, and as soon as I got it, I jumped in and could not put it down. The author does an amazing job in adding drama, angst, secrets, some really great sex and an amazing alpha possessive male character. The prologue was nothing short of amazing which completely grabbed me. I love when a book starts off with a strong start and continues on like that throughout the book. The story is told through alternate POV’s. Which for me is my

Julia Fisher aka Jules is the one woman that Brian Evans would do anything for. He loves her always and forever. But is the feeling mutual? One decision six years ago will change their lives forever.

I really loved this story. It really hit home with a past flame. If you had the choice to do it over with someone you loved, would you? Would you have done everything in your power to make sure you followed your heart? Julia is completely shattered by Brian’s decision to not wait for her. But is the

I was given a copy of this book from the author for an honest opinion.
Man do I love me an Alexis book. She can write a story and drop little tid bits here and there and then BANG they come back to haunt ya. You are left going “How did I not see that one coming??” Well this book had them in SPADES friends so be warned.
Brian and Julia/Jules have that once in a lifetime love.

Brian loves Julia.
Dan loves Julia.
Julia loves them both. She loves Dan, after all he is best friend. She also loves Brian; he is her first and only true love. He is her everything until the morning she was leaving on a trip. Brian decided to do the same. He left town and wasn’t looking back trying to drown his memories of the only woman he would ever love that didn’t love him in return. Little did Brian know his ill timed disappearing act would break Julia’s heart and drive her into the arms of

Julie Fisher and Brian Evans were a couple all during her high school years. They were very much in love. On the night before she was leaving on a European summer vacation, their relationship fell apart, she blamed him for leaving her and he blamed her for the same; although, they didn’t find out until years later that it was someone else who had a hand in their breakup.

This book has love, mystery, intrigue, lies, deceit, murder and friendship all in one. It is a book that grabs your attention and keeps you guessing.

Julia Fisher thought she found her true love in high school, but he broke her heart right before she left for her summer overseas with her friend. With unanswered letters, texts and phone calls, Julia decided she had to move on in her life even with a broken heart and no answers.

Brian Evans couldn’t understand how Julia could just give up on their

Wow, this book is like one big miscommunication between Brian and Julia. They had a relationship but but something happens and they are no longer together. Both have a different idea of what happened but they don't confront each other. Eight years later Brian comes back to town. Julia is married to Dan, who was one of her closest friends.

I didn't like Brian at first, he came off as a jerk who just wanted to torture Julia with his present. Brian can't hide his feelings for Julia. Julia still has

This was a nice love story with a little bit of a shocker. I thought I kind of figured it out but NOPE, I didn't see that at all. Alexis provided us with a STRONG alpha named Brian who went above and beyond for his "forever" Julia. Sometimes his tactics were dickheaded but the ending results were still the same. Protect and love her at all cost. That cost got pricey and almost cost him a forever.

Hot, funny, and exasperating all at the same time. Brian was my baby though and had a heart of gold.

I have absolutely no intension of giving too much away with this review because like many of Alexis Noelle’s books – there is just too much good stuff going on to be able to pick out the stuff that really needs to be said without giving the whole plot away, really woman give my emotions a break will you, I’m frazzled!!
The book revolves around Julia and her relationship with both Brian and Dan.
Like many good plots, the crux of the problem is a festival of miscommunication, misjudged reactions and

There is always two sides to every story. Brian Evans and Julia Fisher have two totally different sides to their story. How can that be?

One night Julia was Brian's and then she threw him away. Why? Brian Evan thinks its because he wasn't good enough for Julia Fisher. He was heartbroken and left town. Six years later he returns to his home town. Even though he still loves her, he decides he going to show her what she was missing when she choose him over Brian.

All it took was one night full of distrust, self doubt and deceit to rip apart Julia and Brian. They thought their bond was so strong and indestructible, yet was proven to be weak and gullible. Now after eight years all their unresolved issues come to a head when Brian comes back to town. To Brian, it doesn't matter that Julia is married and seemingly happy in life. He doesn't care if she doesn't want to see him. For Julia, she just can't believe after all this time that Brian is really b

This was a roller coaster ride it has a lot of twist and turns that you do not see coming. It is a hard book to review without giving the story away. To have a love that last through the worse pain that will last a lifetime is more than most of us can dream about. Brian and Julia have this but the past is still in their way and Julia is married to her best friend. Neither can more on nor forgive or forget both feel like the other did them wrong. Things happen that put a big twist on their life, ...more

Holy Crap, I was completely hooked! I received this about 4 hours ago and started it straight away, I put it down about an hour ago and that only because I had finished! I loved all the twists and turns in this book especially as I thought I knew how this book was going to end. It was completely different though. I loved Julia and the she presented herself. She always tried to do her best by everyone else and ensured they were happy but I was so ha

Talk about twists and turns on one chaotic ride! This is a story of love, loss, and total heartache, and it’s super intense, right until the very last page. Brian and Julia had a love that you’d see lasting a lifetime, but it was cut short due to huge misunderstandings on both sides, leading them both in different directions.

Years later, Brian strolls back into town, on a mission to attract Julia’s attention, and that he does. Things aren’t always what they seem, and slowly they both learn trut

This is one roller coaster ride of a story. And it all based around how miscommunication can seriously damage relationships.

Julia and Brain are in love and though they are always arguing the love and chemistry is always present. Dan is Julia's best friend and he and Brian don't get on - jealousy on both parts.
The night before Julia is set to leave for a trip to Europe she had an argument with Brian about seeing Dan before she leaves. After that is all down hill for her - she she didn't get a res

Obsession or love? It is a thin line but what if that line is simply something that people make you believe is a bad thing. What if you just love intensely and would do anything for the person you have given you heart to? Would their be any length time apart or line that you wouldn't cross to ensure that your love was reciprocated and kept safe?
Brian had his heart handed to him by the only person he loved completely, now 8 years later he is back home and she is back on his mind and in his heart.

I just loved this book. Brian is all alpha male, Julia is going on a summer trip with her best friend Lucy and Brian is wanting to spend every last minute with Julia, but her other life long friend Dan is wanting to see her before she leaves to. Brian isn't crazy about Dan, because he feels he wants more than friends with Julia. Brian and Julia argue, that's what they do, and then usually have incredible make up sex, which they

Alexis is like the master at writing a WTF book! I mean seriously, the gift she has for throwing the curve ball is unparalleled in her approach to throw you off your game. One minute you think you know where the story MIGHT be going and then *KA-BAM!* she switches gears and throws your heart totally off course. Totally wicked and wonderful story of two people who are just cosmically intertwined and destined for more…of what I’m not saying!

I am so up and down with this book. I know this is a standalone, but it was just a little too tied up into a nice little bow for me . But... saying that... I really liked this book. I loved the steam, I loved how in the beginning the person we think is the asshole isn't the true asshole. I couldn't believe some of the truths that were uncovered. I couldn't believe the twists that Alexis threw at us in this story. There were a few times my reaction was "wait, what!" and I had to re-read what I ju ...more
