Sitting on the edge of your seat, secretly wondering what will happen next, while letting the romantic side of you play out the ending of the story is the type of book A.C. Bextor has created in her newest book Kept: A Second Chance Fairy Tale. While reading I kept wondering if there would be a happily ever after for Lucy and Michael.
Michael is a head strong big shot attorney who won’t let anyone get close to him after a life changing event that closed off his heart to anything good in life or love. Michael is just living each day in a shell of a man he once was but will never be again.
Lucy is a doting single mother trying to put her young son ahead of everything in life, including love. Her once happy marriage was torn from her heart and Lucy now believes there is no such thing as happily ever after. Not like the Disney movies she loved to watch since she was a young girl.
Never knowing if fate is going to twist its gnarly hands of despair and heartache or weave its intricate web of passion and love we find Lucy and Michael meeting one another. Some believe the road to happiness is never an easy road to travel. Pack your bags then....you're in for a real treat or a bumpy road.
I enjoyed reading this book from beginning to the end. The emotions of Lucy and Michael either break your heart or help you to believe in the power of love again. Take a moment and read their story. You will be glad you did! This is a wonderful addition to my library!
Lucy is a single mom and living in a run-down apartment with her six year old son. Her husband died 5 years prior in a car crash. She didn’t have many to turn to and has been supporting Dillon and herself this whole time. Now she loses her job and her mother-in-law is trying to take Dillon away from her. Where is a Prince in Shining Armor when you need one?
Michael has been in a dark place for the last few years. His son was taken from him, much too soon and ever since then he has hated life. His law practice is growing. His business partner, Corbin, has been his best friend through all of the difficulties and has grown accustom to Michael Beast like behavior. But things change and Michael doesn’t like change. Michael and Corbin’s personal assistant, Lillie, of 8 years is retiring and they need to find someone to replace her. Michael refuses to pick someone because no one is good enough to replace Lillie. Then walks in Lucy and everything hits the fan.
Lucy thought her dreams were coming true when she was offered a job to work as personal assistant at a Mercer’s Law firm, but she wasn’t expecting to meet the most, arrogant brute of a man. Even though the man was gorgeous and there was heated chemistry between the two, she refused to be bated by his rude manners and unkind words.
I really enjoyed this book. I am such a fairy tale girl at heart that I would melted at all the princess references. This book is a different take on Beauty and The Beast. The man isn’t ugly physically, but the way he acts and speaks is detesting. Our protagonist characters each have their own baggage. There are some cheesy movies on Netflix and Hulu that have the same type of plot.
Michael and Lucy have in common that they have both suffered lose, but in his case it was also the lose of his beloved young son, as well as wife. Lucy still has her son, but suffered the lose of her son's father and husband. Michael has withdrawn from living his life, and only lives to work as a silent partner in his law firm and lives a life of a recluse, vowing never to love again. Lucy is devoted mother to young son and trying to provide for him and doesn't want to love again. The pain of losing someone you love with that intensity has the power to break & paralyze you in such a way that you'd rather not breathe. They have more in common then just grief, and when fate or meddling friends throw them together their lives will never be the same.
She made him feel found, yet he didn't mind being lost inside himself. “Sometimes choosing to stay indifferent is the only way to cope.” “You keep on coping then. I'll keep finding ways to save the world.” “Do you believe people deserve to be happy, even if they think they don't?” “Yes. Maybe. I don't know, Lucy.” “I don't know either.”
You can learn a lot from fairy tales if you watch them closely enough. As Michael softens toward Lucy and starts to really care about her, there are secrets from the past, and even if you didn't get your fairy tale with their first marriages, or their happily ever after, can it happen now with each other, are they given a second chance. Maybe fairy tales can come true as long as you believe.
