She’s a pain in my ass.
She’s everything I know I don’t want or need.
She’s the reason I’ve fought the darkness for so long.
And yet, she has no idea who I am.
I had no right to Lucy. She was never mine to have. My interest in her should’ve remained no more than an undisclosed business arrangement.
The day she forced her way into my life, everything I worked so hard to secure began to unravel. From that moment forward, my life has been a mixture of chaos and excitement.
Lucy awoke the beast I’ve struggled to live with. Now it’s up to her to ensure the threat of its ghost no longer holds the power to ruin me.
He hates me.
He’s guarded and locked down tight.
He’s a brute.
Yet, he opened my eyes to a future I was certain didn’t exist.
My life was ordinary. As a single mother living only to make ends meet, I stopped wishing for more. My hopes and dreams in finding Prince Charming ceased to exist. Life forced my priorities to change.
Then I walked into Michael Holden’s office and saw pain not so unlike mine reflecting through his icy gaze. He incited feelings I believed to have long since died.
Michael awoke the spring of hope I thought I’d finally set free. Now it’s up to him to show me fairy tales really can come true, if you believe.
Due to content, this book should not be read by those under the age of 18.
I absolutely love AC so I know without a doubt anything she writes will be amazing and this was exactly that!! From the moment I started reading I was hooked. I loved all the characters in this book. Lucy and Michael were amazjng. My heart broke for them each. I loved Lucy's spunky attitude and how she didn't take any crap from anyone especially Michael. I wanted to shake Michael a few times to make him fess up to Lucy but all in good time I suppose. Would Lucy be able to forgive him? Will Michael ever be able to give his heart over to love again? Would they get the fairytale happily ever Lucy always dreamed of?
If you love reading a book on finding love and second chances you will love Kept. You will laugh, cry and feel every emotion Lucy and Michael feel. The epilogue was perfect!! AC I could be taking a chance here but I would love a book on Shannan and Corbin!!! I loved Corbin he was a hoot! I can't wait to see what that brilliant brain of yours comes up with next!!
