A first kiss that changed everything.

"Because love wins everytime."

Kept from You is the fourth book in the Tear Asunder Series. Although you can read it as a stand-alone, I highly recommend you read the entire series from the beginning. The characters are deeply rooted in their relationships with each other, and the story arc is carefully constructed to overlap over the whole series. With each book in the series, I have fallen more in love with these characters and the world in which they dwell. To finally experience Killian Kane

God, I was waiting such a long time for Killian's story!!!
It's a common secret that I'm a huge fan of Nashoda Rose's books and especially "Tear Asunder" series are my favorite!!!!

We had already witness the bittersweet stories of the rest members of the "Tear Asunder" band and this story is for Kite, the drumer, a very quite and easygoing guy!!!
But is he truly as he appears to be???

One thing that i adore in this series is how connected these guys are between them... The

Kept from You is Killian Kane's, aka Kite's, story and follows him as a girl from his past comes back into his life. He and Savvy went to High School together for a very short time before she left, and in that time he watched her, wanted her, and warned her to stay away from him right after kissing her. But now it's eleven years later and she's desperate enough for a job to not heed his warning.

But this book had me so sacked in I couldn't put it down I read it in a day. From the first page I just knew I'd luv it. Killian/Kite is a great character and I was dying to know his story.

4 "love wins every time" stars

Kept from you (Tear Asunder #4) is an emotional story that I did not expect to be in such a way while I was waiting for Nashoda Rose to finish it. I was anticipating a hardass edgy rough man BUT I was actually swept by Killian Kane aka Kite on a totally different level.

We meet Killian and Savannah/Savvy in highschool as their paths couldn't be more different at first and then unexpectedly intertwined in the ways none of them anticipated…especially considering the de

Different from the rest but still great.

I think it would be hard for authors who write series. On one hand your customers want your trademark storylines, plots and character development but on the other hand, they don't want the same storylines, plots and character development. So what happens when we get to the last few guys from Tear Asunder? Should the women they fall for be broken and beaten? Will they have to fight to the death to get them out of hell? Are we supposed to believe that each o

Savannah (Savvy) Grady had a passion for dancing. But a wrong choice led her to desperation for a job and a reunion with someone from her past brought up a different kind of desperation.

Killian (Kite) Kane grew up as an angry teenager. He had the need to upheld justice and protected others, including a girl he cared about. Years later he became a famous rock star and the need to protect and
Well, well, well, what a lovely surprise this was! The blurb sucked me in and although I haven't read the other books in the series not once did I feel lost, though I am going to read the others after finishing this one. I bloody love me my perfect heroes and Killian is all that and more. Bonus is a really sweet heroine with not a single TSTL move in sight - be still my beating heart.

Loved the writing, loved the pacing, loved the fact that they didn't just fall into bed from the get go, Killian

4 stars

So, the 4th Tear Asunder book.

Wow, it feels like forever since I met Sculpt, and fell in love with him.

So here's a fun fact: Torn From You was the first Dark Romance book I read some 3-4 years ago, and it was the book that made me fall in love with the genre. And because of that, I will forever be grateful to Rose.

Kite, from the very first book had been an enigma- the quiet bandmate, everyone respected, but at the same time so different from the rest.

I love this series, in fact I love Nashoda! I was dying for Kite's story and when this baby hit my Kindle, I dove right in. Boy, she didn't disappoint.

I never thought it was possible, but I fell even more in love with Kite. His childhood was difficult with a lot of hurt and loss. It's shaped who he is today. Nashoda gives us glimpses into his broken past and into the brief, but poignant connection with Savvy.

Savvy was easy to connect with and like. She was perfect Kite in she brought light to

I am seriously in love with this series and I have been waiting (not so patiently) for Kite's story.

This is the fourth book in the series and I think it could be read as a stand alone. Why anyone would actually want to do that, is beyond me though, because all the books in this series are awesome. So my advice...start at the beginning ;)

4 1/2 "Orchid" Stars!

Loved it! Killian and Savvy have a surprisingly sweet story. This book is not nearly as dark as the other books in the series. I'm actually quite relieved about that; though there was tragedy and heartbreak and events that made me very angry. Now I can't wait for Trevor's story. I believe his story will be quit interesting. I loved catching up with the band! Nashoda Rose has become an auto buy author for me. Happy reading!!

I think Nashoda Rose can do no wrong with her books! With Kept from you, she delivered a poignant gripping heart-breaking story, yet sweet at the same time.

It's no secret I'm a huge fan of hers. I still need to read a PNR series but other than that I read every single book she made and every single one was a success. Nashoda Rose always finds the words to lead me in her world. The Tear Asunder series seduced me with his dark tones in Torn from you and Overwhelmed by you but it was Crisis' story

4,5 STARS!

"It was dangerous, the way I felt about her. Powerful. Intense. Consuming. And yeah, it was obsessive."

I loved this book and I couldn't believe that I kept this one on my shelf for so long. This book is part of the "Tear Asunder" series but like all the books in the series it can be read as a standalone. Nashoda Rose sets a different tone in each of her books and compared to the first book of the series, this book is not a dark one! Maybe dark-ish?
It is raw, passionate, sexy, soul stir

"You were always meant to be mine, Savvy."

Wow. I didn't think there was a possibility Nashoda Rose could top her past Tear Asunder books but I do believe she did with Kept from You. So here's how my reading experiences went with this series... The first book featured Logan (aka Sculpt) and that book seriously had everything I look for in a book- a tortured hero, a damaged heroine, suspense, intrigue, and a perfect fit for two lovers, each fitting a certain hole the other needed f

Well, Kite/Killian wasn't as kinky as I wanted him to be. His dad was nasty, but not as bad as Sculpt's. Then there's that revelation...and boy does it mess Crisis up. Savvy was perfect for Killian. Loved seeing all of the band again. I hope Matt hooks up with her BFF, and that they get their own book.

Ms. Rose quit teasing me with only mentioning my book boyfriend's name (Deck) and then nothing else. Trevor's book is up next here's hoping for an actually sighting

Damn, I always thought drums are the best instrument ever...they are the backbone of every melody...they set the pace, the tact, the initiation of every note out there...and therefore, the drummers are people of control and leadership even if they sit in the back...

Kite, man... I can't wait to set my pace with you...

Loved this at first but then it started falling flat for me.
I have been waiting for Kites story forever! I was thinking this was going to top Crisis story which was my favorite! But it didn't. I felt disappointed while reading this one. I think my biggest problem was how sweet Savvy was. I also felt Kite wasn't the same as I had found him in the other books in this series. I was expecting some hot kinky shit and we didn't get that. lol

I skimmed some toward the end. The drama to me

“Fight for me, damn it. Stop fighting everything else and fight for me. For us”

Nashoda Rose has done it again! We’ve loved everything we've read from this talented author, and after finishing Kept from You, we’re convinced this is one of our favourite series. There’s suspense, grit, passion, emotion and alpha goodness galore, not to mention pierced tattooed rock stars…yummy! What’s not to love…oh and this was bloody hot! And sweet! And a little intense!

So, I think I found my new book boyfriend, Killian Kane (Kite, drummer of Tear Asunder), just broken and guilt stricken, but also badass and sexy, strong and intimidating. His protectiveness of Savvy (Savannah) was fierce and electric!

They're story actually began in high school, where Killian was feared and known to protect the kids picked on by bullies. Besides that, he pretty much kept to himself. He was fighting the monsters
