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.
First, I love Kennedy Fox! They always give me the perfect dose of sexy and sweet, and I have enjoyed every single book that I’ve read by them! Keeping Him was no exception.
The Bishop Brothers series has given me compelling characters and swoon-worthy stories. I honestly can’t say which brother or couple is my favorite! I can, however, say that Mama Bishop raised her boys right…and obviously has great genes!
Keeping Him is the friends-to-lovers story of Jackson and Kiera. Let me tell you…it was well worth the wait! KF has been sprinkling little bits of Jackson and Kiera around for a while, so the anticipation was REAL for me. We got multiple POVs and flashbacks that really helped to give the readers a new perspective on the characters and their lives.
Jackson is a playboy oozing confidence and Kiera is sassy and smart! They’ve been friends for fifteen years while hiding their true feelings for each other. Their friendship is the sweetest, and it’s obvious they’re perfect for each other! Kiera doesn’t want to wait around forever till Jackson figures it out or acts on his feelings, though, so when her boyfriend asks her to marry him, she says “yes.” This just screams “RECIPE FOR ANGST!”
Gahhh I can’t even put into words all the feelings I have right now about this book! It truly was everything! There was growth and conflict and love and sweat! Books like this are why friends-to-lovers is one of my favorite tropes.
Overall, if you think I’m not going to recommend this book, you’re crazy! Go get it now! Not just Keeping Him, but the whole series, because you need to get to know and love each of the Bishop brothers like I have. Contemporary romance with a little southern drama is exactly what you’re getting here!
