Review: Keeping Her: A Dark Romance by Angela Snyder
Keeping Her: A Dark Romance (Keep Me Series Book 1) - Angela Snyder

What a roller coaster of emotions! One moment I was hating the characters, the next I was sympathizing with them, the next I was in love, and before I knew it was exasperated and then back in love. Crazy stuff! 

Now, I feel the most important thing I need to point out is that this is a dark romance and that there are some serious **** TRIGGER ISSUES **** that may make some readers uncomfortable so read with caution. 

The story, which was narrated in first POV by various characters, gave me that feeling of intense passion and angst. I think the author made a good job by portraying Lucian with so many emotional and character flaws, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to overlook his numerous acts of possessiveness and cruelty, even after a very important truth is uncovered and he has no reason to keep acting that way. Adeline is the sweet and innocent girl that captures his attention in a way that no one thought possible. And when I say innocent, I really mean it, and for good reasons too. Odd thing was that it was hard for me to connect with and understand her character but I think that was because of everything that happened in her previous life and her current situation. I just couldn’t relate to her in any feasible way. 

The story has a good pace and flow although I found the characters talking too much to themselves and at times I found their inner dialogue a bit repetitive. However one thing I liked a lot was that even though Adeline started as a victim, she never behaved as one and that made her a more realistic character. 

On a side note, I was totally blindsided by what happened towards end and the cliffhanger. It’s a good thing we don’t have to wait too long how this story ends as the next installment will be out in only a couple of months. 

I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.

Hold on
Lost Love: A Second Chance Romance (Only Him Series Book 2) - Casey C Nicole N Cleveland C

This is the 2nd book in the Only Him series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and clear of spoilers, I always recommend reading series stories in order intended.

 

Derek has come home to work out why he cannot move on with his love life.  When he left years ago, it was an impulse and he was racked with pain from rejection.  Coming back is either brave or stupid, but he needs to know.

 

Gio has no idea what to expect.  He has not seen Derek since that time so long ago.  He too, has been struggling with moving on.  Can they get it right this time?  Or is the pain of the past just the foreshadowing of the future?

 

These two so obviously belong together.  They can't even keep their hands or mouths to themselves!  It is a fine addition to the series.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
