I just love how she has created such wonderful characters and how the books intertwine. You always get a glimpse of past characters and updates. It's like revisiting family, and yes that is what these group of characters are a FAMILY.
Just going to tell you now I think I am in love with Killian "Kite"!! His over protectiveness, domineering ways just melted my heart. And to actuated give your heart away to someone and hold it close for eleven years just priceless. One kiss and that's it. That is a thing of beauty. He does have some issues though. Can he overcome those issues?? READ it and find out.
Savvy is a beautiful character but very stubborn. She has lived life mostly alone and just dreams of family. Can we say blast from the past?? One kiss, an orchid and a note connects these two. Two altering atrocities, will they get the happily ever after these two so deserve?? Well hey READ the book!!
Thanks again Nashoda Rose for another amazing read.
Thanks always fangirling Jamie Nibarger Ellis
Well, in Kept from You, Nashoda Rose went for a different kind of heroine. Of course, Savvy had her issues, but in they weren't life or death.
To tell you the truth, I kind of missed the emotional gut punch. Yes, it's still emotional and deals with issues that were hard but I wasn't sobbing like a baby or needing cuddles from hubby in this one. I probably should be thanking the author...she saved me money for buying tissues.
You think you know someone and then you find out that what you thought was happening wasn't happening at all. Kept from You is all about Killian and Savvy.
They met in high school where Killian was a messed up punk of a kid who liked to pick fights with bullies and scare away the baddies.
Savvy was a sweet girl who volunteered at the school first aid office and always tried to find something good in everyone. They were so different yet they felt an immense attraction to each other. Nothing happens between them besides one very impressive kiss that haunts their memories for years.
Time moves on and both of their lives have changed. Killian is in a band and he's finally moved away from the one person in his life he hates the most...his father. He's managed to bury his anger but he never buried the memory of the red haired girl from high school. No woman ever measured up to her, so he stopped trying. Maybe one day she'll drop back into his life...and he might never let her go.
Savvy is down but determined to get back up. Her douchewaffle ex-boyfriend besmirched her name and ruined her work prospects when she caught him cheating with one of their dance students. With very little money and plenty of bills to pay Savvy is getting desperate. She's hoping to call in a favour with an old high school friend. I wonder if Killian, now known as Kite, will even remember her?
Now Killian has Savvy in his clutches, he just has to work out how to keep her.
I think this was the sweetest story that Nashoda Rose has written. I really enjoyed it and was sucked in like I normally am. I just expected the boogie man to be a little scarier, to be honest. I also found that it all tied up too quickly at the end. It was like a thunderstorm one minute and rainbows the next.
All good, I'm still addicted to everything that Nashoda writes. Her stories are sexy, sweet, emotional and entertaining. I will definitely be back for Trevor's story.
Nashoda Rose picked us a good one, my fellow romance book-loving friends. This alpha protective good guy with a high school bad boy persona certainly had thorns you had to watch out for. Well, only if you were up to no good. Then he drew blood alright, the old fashioned painful way, with his fists. There was no misunderstanding the vigilante message he was sending. And that, folks, pretty much had me liking him at hello.
You didn’t have to tell Savvy, the heroine, twice to stay away from Killian. But like a bee to a colorful flower, Killian kept turning up and giving her that gorgeous steely stare. Fast-forward eleven years later and she finds herself a reluctant damsel in distress and who better to come to her aid than this now famous rockstar black night in black leather.
The First 65% Portion: With writing that flowed, we are dished out a surprisingly second version of Killian that couldn’t have been better. The guy truly always had a teddy bear heart beneath all that toughness. Fortunately for him, he also had a great posse of supportive friends. He also wasn’t one to flaunt or parade women around on his arm or in his bed. This avid true romantic at heart, especially appreciated that rare trait among rock star romance leading men. He kept his private life private, so we had the good fortune of not having to experience any past or present OW drama/comments. Well, not until the latter portion when what was likely intended as an endearing true confessions moment came across as not so much for me.
Though I liked the sweet sentiment behind his flowery nickname for Savvy, I definitely didn’t think it rolled off the tongue that well, especially during their smexy sessions. Btw, this heroine was definitely on the sugary sweet side.
If you’ve read Ms. Rose before, you know she often adds a very dark element. This one felt lighter than most. Sure, Killian had a sad, painful past but it didn’t completely overshadow the romantic plot. However, it did affect his judgment/rationale at times. Even the aspect of Savvy’s job at the club was presented as not being that big of a deal. Mostly because it was considered an upscale/class over crass type establishment. At around 70% naughtiness definitely kicked in (dirty talk/thoughts, numerous OTT smexy scenes in unlikely situations, and even some very steamy/graphic BDSM). For me, it was a huge shift change that turned this sweet/steamy heart melting contemporary read into an OTT very lusty, erotic one.
With an inevitable, predictable showdown, I was pleased with how things turned out. However, IMHO the 50 Shades of Gray element that kicked in full throttle around 70% and hijacked the storyline didn’t seem to match the previous portion at all, nor the overly flowery/sentimental writing that also crept in. For me, the best part took place as they were getting to know each other and realize their soul connection that even time and distance had not diminished.
Having really enjoyed Shattered By You, Book 3 of this series, despite its much darker broken heroine theme, I took a chance Ms. Rose would keep the romantically engaging trend going, and for a majority of this book she did not disappoint. But there were enough contradictions/discrepancies in the writing that left me feeling this one could have been a 5 star fantastic read but now only deserves 3.5. But this is just my honest opinion, folks. I certainly do not want to keep you from forming your own. Here's to hoping my review has been helpful in some way in doing just that.
