Keeping Him by Kennedy Fox

Published: September 20, 2018

**I received an ARC for an honest review**

I was really looking forward to this book and when I started reading it I did have a slight disappointment in the way the book was set up. The book starts out at Kiera and Trent’s wedding which is the next step from the cliffhanger in the previous book. But then it goes into the months previous and all I wanted was for it to go back into the present. I don’t mind flashbacks but really I just wanted the present. But that is my only beef with this novel. Like I loved everything else but the first few chapters that did this. The content was even great and important to the story. I just wasn’t a fan of the setup.

Kiera Young is going to marry the man of her dreams. Or so she thinks. She has always loved Jackson and thought he would be the man at the end of the aisle waiting for her but she got tired of waiting and through the wait she found Trent. She believed that he was the man she was meant to spend her life with but when he starts to keep things from her and is constantly jealous of Jackson she doesn’t know what to do. He isn’t the man she thought she was marrying and doesn’t know how to extract herself from it all.

Jackson Bishop is the wild child of the Bishop boys. He is also the man whore. All of his whoring ways were so that he wouldn’t have to think about how he can’t have the one woman he wants, Kiera. She has a hold on his heart and always has. The only person who doesn’t know that is Kiera and he’ll never tell her because he doesn’t think that he is good enough for her. But when given the choice of never telling her what she means to him and watching her marry a man that he knows isn’t good for her he chooses to tell her. Little does he expect everything that follows that one confession.

Beside the style issues that I mentioned previously the novel was really great and it was such a good end to the Bishop Brothers series. I particularly liked that it moved forward in time in the last couple of chapters not just the Epilogue so that we could see their relationship as it progresses. The novel had some unexpected turns to it and though you get inklings to events you never know how it’s going to turn out. That’s how I felt at least about Trent. I knew he was up to no good. Anyway, as the last book in the series there will be no more Bishop Brothers but plenty more from Kennedy Fox. It was a good ending to a short and sweet series.
