Good Reads Summary:
Garrick Taylor and Bliss Edwards managed to find their happily-ever-after despite a rather . . . ahem . . . complicated start. By comparison, meeting the parents should be an absolute breeze, right?
But from the moment the pair lands in London, new snags just keep cropping up: a disapproving mother-in-law-to-be, more than one (mostly) minor mishap, and the realization that perhaps they aren’t quite as ready for their future as they thought.
As it turns out, the only thing harder than finding love is keeping it.
*SPOILERS FOR LOSING IT*
This review’s a bit short, matching the length of the book 🙂
So Keeping Her is a novella taking place as a sort of epilogue for the book Losing It (adorable new adult romance read btw). Bliss and Garrick are on their way to meet Garrick’s parents in London, and Bliss is a nervous wreck, as she usually is. The novella follows their short trip to England, a surprise engagement party, shenanigans with Garrick’s parents, and other drama found in contemporary romance. The book itself reads so easily, you feel like it’s over just pages after you started.
Cora Carmack is an extremely entertaining author. Her characters have moments of absolute hilarity, while at the same time having real human faults and issues. Her writing is clever, fluid, and leaves out anything boring or unnecessary. If anything, I found myself wishing Keeping Her was longer.
Garrick is seriously Mr. Perfect.
He is so selfless, so understanding, so…..freakishly perfect. I loved him. Bliss is slightly irritating with all her anxiety and panic attacks, but it’s easy to forgive her because Garrick loves her so much and this book is written from both of the POV’s. It was nice to see Garrick’s background and see how much he had grown up and separated from his old life (namely his parents and dozens of exes) although that just made him seem even more outlandishly perfect.
Anyway, if you liked Losing It, this book is a MUST READ for you. This is a fun series with much less graphic sex than many New Adult romances. I don’t have a really clear remembrance of what I would rate Losing It, but Keeping Her was far tamer than others I’ve read.
