This is the third book in the series and I think you should read them in order. If you have not read the second book you will miss much of how Antonia and Shelby meet and started their relationship. This book was sad at times, but I loved it. Shelby is a twenty-five year old virgin and Antonio isn’t the type of man who has a girlfriend. Shelby has her reasons for why she is still a virgin and now ones them except for her grandmother and her best friend Markus. After what she did in book 2 she ha ...more

What a GREAT ending to an AMAZING series !! Luke , Adam and Antonio are amazing men and I have enjoyed their journeys and might have melted some panties or forced some cold showers due to their HOTNESS.

We got a brief glimpse of what Shelby and Antonio could be like in the last book and if you were like me you were impatiently waiting for the damn to break , the ball to drop , for anything to happen to force their true feelings out. By now reading any book in this genre you know it isn't always g

Keep me is the third book in the Shelter Me series and Kathy doesn't disappoint with her raw talent at writing an alpha male. Antonio is your red blooded Italian man who knows what he wants and he doesn't stop until he gets it. His eyes are set on Shelby and he will not take any prisoners in his mission to get his woman!
Shelby is a female who very easily flies of the handle at the littlest things and she has a mouth to her that would make a trucker blush! One of the hard things about reading th

Keep Me is the third book in the Shelter Me series featuring Antonio & Shelby who appeared in the previous books. Antonio is Luke Schavone's younger brother & Shelby is Erin's little sister who had a brief fling in the previous book & both are very different to their siblings. Antonio has a reputation as a carefree man-whore while Shelby is a sharp-tongued business women; they are opposites, but will they be able to pick-up where they left off, 4 months before? After all, their parti ...more

Great way to end the series. I loved the banter between Antonio and shelby. I had a feeling of what Shelby's secret was and so I wasn't quite as shocked, but the way Antonio handled it and her was great. The series overall was very good.

Kathy Coopmans did it again she wrote another amazing love story.
This is Antonio and Shelby's story.
This is the third and final chapter in the Shelter Me series and I am sad to see it end. I have loved all three stories. Kathy delivers a love story like no other. She did it again. Shelby is such a strong and amazing woman who keeps some secrets of her own. She needs to learn that its ok to live life and have fun. There is more to life that

description

A conspiracy for love…

Shelby Morris was thrilled that her sister Erin and niece Sierra were happy with Adam. They deserved his deep love and commitment to their new family. Knowing that happiness was out of her reach she concentrated on a career, and business, that was her family. Adam’s brother Antonio had other ideas but, even though she felt attracted to him more than she ever had, she was happy they were in Michigan and she was safely in Texas. When she came back for the wedding, however, al

In true to Kathy form..... She has hit the ball out of the park with Keep Me. In picking up where Rescue Me left off with Shelby and Antonio..... I was utterly floored! She kept me in suspense as to what was really going on with Shelby. And it was not at ALL what I had expected. The chemistry between Shelby and Antonio can only be described as explosive! You can feel the sizzle just reading the exchanges between the two. Whether it's the snarky comments or the ultra sexy sexual innuendos..... It ...more

I adore this author. Every book she has penned to date, I have read and loved. She has a brilliant way of sucking you in from the first page and giving you an amazing story. When I first discovered Shelter Me, she won me over and since then has become a definite go-to, must read, bump high on my TBR list ... author. Get ready to swoon, laugh, cry, smile, and most importantly fall in love.

I loved this book. This series has been an amazing one so far and I think I am confident enough to sa

Keep Me is the third and final installment of the Shelter Me series (sniff, sniff) and it is so typical Kathy Coopmans style that it's hard not to love. All the previous characters are present along with the introduction of Marcus who is just the most amazing and funny best friend EVER! Shelby is not only dealing with the consequences of the previous books ending but also a secret she has held from everyone since she was 13. This secret as everyone she knows has grown up and got their HEA plays ...more

Shelby Morris used bitter words towards Antonio Schavone that cut him deep.
He's never given up even after she left him four months ago.
Shelby has carried a secret so deep that not even her sister knows.
It's the one reason she has never let a man get close and why she lives for her job.
He doesn't care about her secret,he just wants her and only her.
Can Antonio break through Shelby's strong willed ways?
Or will Shelby

This review is from: Keep Me (Shelter Me Series Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
Antonio stole my heart, not only is he Hot and Sexy, but he has an Amazing heart. I loved how much he cared about Shelby, and would do anything for her. Their was a strong attraction between them, that neither one could fight and would sooner or later give into. Shelby is sweet and innocent, never been with a man before, but is turned on by Antonio, he brings feeling

Wow! Best fucking book in the Shelter Me series, by far. Kathy went out with bang with this one and hit it out of the park. I suggest reading the series to get to know all the characters, but you can skip right to this one. It gives enough back history you're not lost and focuses on Shelby and Antonio.

I love their characters. They are witty, snarky, and their chemistry is out of this world. Marcus, Shelby's best friend, had me pissing myself. There are true laugh out loud moments followed immed

I guess this was the book that let me know I am for sure a Kathy Coopmans fan! She has the ability to write characters that I instantly connect with and make my fictional friends. My favorite thing about Kathy's writing is that her stories aren't these oh there's rainbows and sunshine all the time- she writes stories that imitate real life. The kind of stories you can connect with because they're so genuine.

Antonio is a man who sleeps around and has never even thought of settling down. He won't

Shelby left Michigan four months ago with harsh parting word for Antonio. Dubbing him the king of manwhores and truly scared of having a relationship she figured the easiest way to get over him was being mean to him. But coming back to town for her sisters, Erin, wedding she is coerced by Erin and her best friend to take a trip with Antonio so they can get to know each other because he truly cares for her and wants more.

Antonio fell in love with Shelby at first sight. Yeah he's always been a lad

Was looking forward to this one so much and for some reason I got bored early on and could not keep my attention on the story however I trudged on. I think I expected more, especially with the culmination of everything that happened in the last book with Shelby. The characters felt off, like they were totally different people, almost boring compared to the Antonio and Shelby from before. Not to mention the times I thought how far fetched something was, like really? What are the chances of that a ...more

Antonio was a 30 year old man-whore and made no excuses for it. He was single and enjoying life.
Shelby was a 25 year old virgin and wasn't willing to have a relationship because of a secret. She is a ball buster who curses like a sailor.
As soon as Antonio saw Shelby his whoring days were over. He had never had feelings like he was having for a woman before.
Shelby denied how she felt until she couldn't deny it any more.
