Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I’ve read all of this series so far, and each have been five star reads for me. This one lives up to the others though the first book is still my favourite – time for a reread I think!
Anyway, three sisters and how they met their man. Its youngest sister Brynn’s turn now. I really liked Brynn, understood her so well. I’m a people pleaser too – I hate to say no when I'm asked to do something. I even went to adult ed assertiveness classes for a few weeks but it didn’t help. I hate role playing and every time I had to say no I felt I needed to apologise much to the frustration of the tutor! It means I can really empathise with Brynn, with the way she allows herself to take on more and more, and has to work so much longer to just keep up.
Then there’s Iain, rich, rude and ruthless sums him up really. Yet when he saw Brynn some months ago he was attracted in a way he’s never been before and can’t seem to get her out of his mind. When he and his partner Marc need investors for his latest project and he targets Brynn’s brother in law Trevor it seems a good idea to use Brynn to get to him. Kill two birds with one stone so to speak. Of course we can see its not a good idea, and his partner cautions him, but Iain’s always very single minded and determined to make it work. He gets a surprise though at just how strong his feelings for Brynn are, how it pleases him that he and Brynn fit so well together, that she likes her sex a little out of the ordinary, that while he likes to dominate she loves to submit – it works for them both. Its not in a heavy BDSM way, just a little stronger than other people would like.
What I really love about Terri’s stories are the characters, they all feel so real, like people I could know, and the situations they’re in are realistic. I need that in a story, that things could happen that way. Its got some terrific drama too when things go wrong. We can take a good guess at what’s going to happen, but not when and how, and when it does happen its heart-breaking, and played out for some time, not over in two pages or so. Just the sort of dramatics that make a read special for me!
Stars: Five. a great read and terrific addition to the series.

Brynn Campbell is the youngest of the Campbell sisters, and her story is book 3 in the Beauty and Brit series. Since her mom’s illness and death, Brynn has shied away from anything dealing with the center of attention, she’s okay with being the wallflower. It’s affected her personal and work behavior, always putting other people before her needs. Brynn’s goodhearted nature is what endears her to friends and family, but it is also why others take advantage. Iain sees this as an opportunity when he underhandedly hires her in attempt to lure Trevor Blake as an investor. He can’t resist Brynn, and Ian wants her. But will Iain break her heart to get to the investor he needs for his project?
His To Keep is my first book by Terri Austin. This story is lighthearted and entertaining with some laugh-out-loud moments. Just love how Brynn keeps giving herself pep talks whenever she’s in self-doubt mode. How she calls herself “jellyfish” and very much aware she’s a pushover. Thank goodness she grew a spine by the end of the story, I wanted to virtually finger-pop her on the head. But she lived up to the strong heroine I knew she could be. And Iain, finally tuned down the testosterone enough to righteously claim his woman. Their “tacky” Las Vegas style wedding was so outrageous, funny and romantic. It was definitely high up on the swoon-worthy scale.Though I consider this a sweet romance, there is plenty of sex scenes that ratchet up the heat scale. My only complaint is the pace is a bit slow in the beginning and I struggled to keep my attention focused, but it picks up towards the end. Clocking in at 448 pages, it’s quite long but I enjoyed the the romantic ending and epilogue to help round out this story.

My rating: 4
I'm sort of torn about this book. The writing was good and the story itself was an interesting one but I never formed a connection with the characters. I was annoyed that Iain was able to steamroll over Brynn so easily and so often. I realize that was her personality but, just once, I wanted her to tell him no and mean it.
I just never fell in love with Iain or Brynn as individuals so it was hard to fall in love with them as a couple. It didn't help that some of the drama seemed forced and at times cliche.
This wasn't a book that I hated or wish that I hadn't read but it probably won't be a book I'll be revisiting either.
