Grizzly, growly mountain men. Forced proximity in snowstorm conditions. Ratcheting, raw desires with a possessive bent. All of these things made Keeper a thrilling conclusion to Robin Lovett’s Dark series. And oh, how decadent it was!
Layla's inquisitive nature has her wanting answers. She's writing a book on the story of the Vandershall's and for the full inner look, she needs the missing link. Chase--the Vandershall's unknown, mysterious half-brother. But the man who greets her is holding a shotgun, and the last thing he wants is company.
Chase doesn’t need someone as persistent as Layla barging into his business and uncovering his secrets. But as the days pass and the snowstorm crescendos, Chase finds that he just might want to keep her after all.
I’m a sucker for having two strangers with mysterious pasts battle it out under intense conditions. A remote cabin in the woods, a snowstorm trapping them together? I simply couldn't pass this read up. There’s this earthy sexual undertone I’ve come to expect in Lovett’s books that I was so happy to see here, but there's also so much to learn and uncover. It all just worked so beautifully here.
Let’s start with Chase. I have a secret, dark space hidden away for a reclusive mountain man! Chase is this survivalist man living high in the mountains, and he’s rugged and closed off. While he can't stand Layla's constant questions and determined grin, there's something about having her in his space—in his lair, almost—that has this darker desires bubbling to the surface. *fans face*
Layla is more than a match for the reticent Chase! She’s got a reporter’s soul for sure, and she can’t let Chase’s secrets—or her book on the Vandershall’s—go. But she's also hiding too, and I loved how everything came about.
Because of how stubborn both of these characters are, it’s this constant snarling (Chase) and circling (both) around each other. A ticking time bomb that’s set to go off that kept me flipping the pages like mad. I got sucked in but good. And as soon as one secret is uncovered, another secret takes it’s place. There’s also beautiful language and imagery in here. Being so isolated, but having this world’s eye view.
Keeper just has the best of both worlds. It’s as soft and romantic as it is hard and lusty. The combination is intoxicating in this story and really keeps with the theme of the previous books in the Dark series. Pushing the envelope, taking us down to our base selves, and seeing what’s there. But also confronting the truth—your inner truth. I think I would have liked an Epilogue to tie things over, but that’s really the only thing I thought was missing.
Keeper can be read as a standalone, but for full enjoyment I recommend reading the series in it’s entirety. Lovett is a new name in darker romance that will continue to be on my auto-read list.
And as a last plea for us curious and desperate souls...*sobs* KEEGAN! Please, we NEED Keegan's story! *shivers*
Don't miss this sublime series.
Layla is looking to get Chase's story on what happened a few years back..to get the answers that they need. Layla is also a friend of Chase's half-sister. To get to Chase she had to go into the mountains where few go.
Chase has isolated himself into the mountains and likes it that way. Him and a neighbor make sure to scare off any people or tourist who try to come up their mountain. When he see Layla trying to make it up he first feels a protective desire for her but knows he needs to scare her off. But she isn't going anywhere she tells him.
It was fun watching these to come together and the story-line drama was good too.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read.
Another enjoyable book in the series. This is the third book in the Vandershall series and tells the story of Chase and Layla. I found the storyline riveting and was on edge waiting to see how things would be resolved. I liked both Chase and Layla, as well as the secondary characters of Keegan and Meg; I'm wondering now if they'll get a story. This author has a real talent for creating chemistry between her characters that oozes off the page. I will admit, however, that even though I found the story itself intriguing, I also felt like it really dragged at times, especially at the beginning of the story. Both characters spent a lot of time self-reflecting on their feelings, and I found myself skimming those passages to get back to their interactions. Once they were interacting, I devoured every word. Overall, this was an enjoyable read, and I would recommend it to others.
