Release Day + Book Review: KEEPING HIM by Kennedy Fox



       




Jackson Bishop is your typical playboy. Unpredictable, charming, and overly confident. Growing up in Texas, the ranch life is all he's ever known. Horses and late night partying are his lifestyles, and all the local girls know it too. Riding lessons aren't the only things taught at the stables, and he makes sure clients never leave unsatisfied. Everyone knows Jackson's a wild card, but not everything is as it seems. He may be a womanizer on the surface, but he's hiding deep feelings about the one who's had his heart since he was a teen. Unfortunately, it's not as simple as roping her in and claiming her as his. Kiera Young is well-known for her sassy nature and outgoing personality. Though she's one of the best horse trainers in the area, she's never been able to tame her best friend and the man she's secretly loved since she was fifteen-Jackson Bishop. She's waited years for him to confess his true feelings but as time goes on, she decides she's done waiting. Kiera finally meets a man who promises to give her the world, and when he pops the question, she says yes-knowing they're both ready to settle down and start a family. Even if her heart beats for another man. Jackson's certain he's lost Kiera for good and has no one to blame but himself. However, on the day of her wedding, he can't bring himself to watch the woman he loves walk down the aisle to someone else. Kiera's already having second thoughts and knows she can't get married without his support. It's not until she's at the altar that she realizes she can't let Jackson go and will do whatever it takes to keep him-even if it means running out on her own wedding.





I always know when I go into a Kennedy Fox book to brace myself for many emotions thrown all over the place and sexy male characters that will leave me drooling and begging for one of my own. I went into Keeping Him, so excited to finally devour Jackson's story and get to the bottom of his feelings, and playboy lifestyle. And let me tell you...this book doesn't disappoint. It's everything I could have wanted for his book and the last Bishop brother book. 

Keeping Him instantly became my favorite Kennedy Fox book. The story, the characters, all the angst. It was just perfect. Something about his story and Kiera's feelings just drew me right in, and never wanted to let me go. I still can't get this book out of my head and I'm ready to read again. The dynamic between these two characters is off the charts and KF really knew how to dig deep into their story and feed off each others feelings. 

"I'm a selfish man; I realize that but thee was always one thing I couldn't be selfish about, and that was you." 

Keeping Him follows the story of Jackson and Kiera. These two have been best friends since they were in diapers and that's never changed. But the older they got the more their feelings changed. More than friendship and that's always scared Jackson. What if she doesn't feel the same way? What if we lose our friendship? So many what if's and not enough answers. Now here they are years later, never once making a move on their feelings and Jackson is about to lose the only girl he's ever had feelings for to another man. To marriage. 

Jackson has only ever wanted Kiera to be happy and as much as it pains him to see her with another man, if she's happy...he knows he has to let her go. But on the day of her wedding Jackson can't just sit by and watch her marry a man that isn't him. When Kiera sees he's not there for her, she starts to question everything. Will she ruin her wedding and a future with a man that's ready to settle down and have a family, for a man that's pushed all her buttons and never confessed his feelings? Kiera could lose everything but is it worth the risk? 

I adored this book. I wanted to read it again right after I finished and never let these characters go. It was a perfect end to these brothers stories. And even though I'm sad it's over. I can't wait to read more from these authors.

Blog Tour Review: IN HER BONES by Kate Moretti

38532154

A higher level than the standard thriller. Readers will enjoy this book for the suspense…[and] love it for the skill and mastery Moretti has for her craft.” —New York Journal of Books

“Morbid…Moretti pulls some tricky tricks.” —The New York Times


New York Times bestselling author Kate Moretti’s next “exceptional…emotionally astute, [and] deliciously sinister” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) thriller follows the daughter of a convicted serial killer who finds herself at the center of a murder investigation.

Fifteen years ago, Lilith Wade was arrested for the brutal murder of six women. After a death row conviction, media frenzy, and the release of an unauthorized biography, her thirty-year-old daughter Edie Beckett is just trying to survive out of the spotlight. She’s a recovering alcoholic with a dead-end city job and an unhealthy codependent relationship with her brother.

Edie also has a disturbing secret: a growing obsession with the families of Lilith’s victims. She’s desperate to see how they’ve managed—or failed—to move on. While her escalating fixation is a problem, she’s careful to keep her distance. That is, until she crosses a line and a man is found murdered.

Edie quickly becomes the prime suspect—and while she can’t remember everything that happened the night of the murder, she’d surely remember killing someone. With the detective who arrested her mother hot on her trail, Edie goes into hiding. She’s must get to the truth of what happened that night before the police—or the real killer—find her.

Unless, of course, she has more in common with her mother than she’s willing to admit…

Perfect for fans of Ruth Ware, In Her Bones features Moretti’s “riveting and insightful” (Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author) prose and “chillingly satisfying” (Publishers Weekly) twists, and will leave you questioning the nature of guilt, obsession, and the toxicity of familial ties.

"I generally enjoy thinking on my feet, manipulating facts, bending the truth, to get what I want."

I'm not sure what it is, but there's something about the season change from summer to fall that makes me crave one of Kate's thrillers. Maybe it's that it's the time of year her book release or maybe it's just the feeling her stories give me. A dark and twisted tale that keeps me on the edge of my set until it unfolds. IN HER BONES is the story of Edie Beckett the daughter of serial killer, Lilith Wade. It's a story that dives into the mind of a killer and what might drive them to commit such heinous acts. It's a story that tests and explores families and difference between nature verses nurture. It shines a light on mental illness in a way that I found very intriguing.

"The hunt thrilled me. The flush of heat against my neck at each discovery, the way the keys flew under my fingertips, the information seemed summoned at will - almost effortless."

Edie is trying survive while flying under the radar of her mothers crimes. But when history looks like it might be repeating itself, Edie finds herself as the number one suspect. On the run from the police and her past Edie discovers more than she bargains for. Being inside Edie's mind while she tries to discover who the real killer is had me second guessing everything, questioning my own safety and how easily information can be found in this digital era. The ending was nothing that I predicted while trying to solve the mystery myself!

"... between the contacts, photos, historical data, and GPS metadata, everything you need to know about anyone is sitting in their pocket."

If you enjoy mystery and a little bit of psychology or sociology, something that might make you question things in your own life, then this is the book for you. Kate's writing had my interest peaked from the beginning and the very last word. Her writing is always beautiful and stories intriguing. I loved her last two books as well, you can check out my reviews for THE VANISHING YEAR and THE BLACKBIRD SEASON, if you're interested. 

"Everyone ignores what they know to be true, when the truth is inconvenient."


Kate Moretti is the New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing YearThought I Knew You, and Binds That Tie. She lives in eastern Pennsylvania with her husband and kids. Find out more at katemoretti.com.

Publishing Date: January 8th, 2019

Model: Jeremy Baudoin

Zane Phillips mistook me for his dog walker. It shouldn't surprise me that the man with a suit more expensive than my rent would assume that I was there to serve him. The positive? I put him in his place. The negative? I missed my job interview because of it. Now I find out he's a rich Australian entrepreneur, and he wants to make up for tanking my interview.
Yes, he's impossibly hot - but he's also an arrogant jackass - so...no thanks.
But after a little white lie I tell spirals out of control, I'm somehow offered the chance to play Zane's girlfriend to help promote his new dating website - and the best part? He can't say no because he'll get caught in his lie, too.
Little did I know this would entail sharing a tour bus with him for the next few months. The fact that the bus has just one bed isn't the most ideal of circumstances, but this spokesperson gig might be the kick in the pants my career needs, so why not take a chance?
Famous last words.
Now I'm crisscrossing the country - and sharing that bed - with the one guy I can't stand. And even worse, my traitorous body is wondering at every turn what it's like to be down under the gorgeous Australian. But as the miles unfurl, so does our passion...and if I'm not careful, I might end up believing that fairy tales really do come true.
