Audiobook Review: Keep Me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Keep Me by Leah Holt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m his captive. . . and I want him to keep me. 

I was only a child when everything changed. Too young to understand, too old to forget. 

Broken and damaged. 

I thought nothing good could ever happen to me, but ten years later, something did. 

I met a man. 

He swept me off my feet and swooned me into his bed. Cole’s touch was perfect. His lips were made of velvet obsession, they helped me forget the memories that burned me from the inside out. For the first time in forever, I was happy. 

Then he locked me inside his home. 

He told me it was for my safety. And it was so easy to believe him. I was tired of looking over my shoulder, tired of the fear that someone was always watching me. 

Cole wanted to protect me. 

I was ready to let him. 

With him holding me close, all the evil in the world can’t burn me. 

But what happens when our pasts collide, threatening to tear us apart? 

* Author’s note: Keep Me is a full length, dark romance novel with no cliffhanger. This emotional and dark read may contain material that might make the reader uncomfortable.

“Don’t be nervous, this is what you want, this is what I want.” His lips worked up to my collarbone, biting down gently. “And when I’m done with you, all you’ll want is more, you’ll never want me to stop.” Kissing my jaw, he brought his lips to my ear. “You’ll never want to leave.”

The heroine: Cole – Works with the police as a criminal profiler. He has secrets. He recognizes Locke and has been dreaming of her recently.

The Hero(es): Locke – Locke had a bad childhood and has changed her name and moved away. She wants to forget her past and live in the present. She has anxiety and is trying to overcome it and give people a chance.

The Love Story: The opening scene is a very steamy love scene. Not the usual way non smutty books open. The love story went downhill from there when Cole kidnaps Locke. She thinks he is crazy while he says he is doing it to protect her.

I liked the way the reader finds out their secrets a bit at a time. I enjoyed how Cole and Locke were linked together. I also liked how Cole just wanted to protect Locke and how she just wanted to be protected. Being a single mom since my kids were young, I know the feeling sometimes, how after years of having only yourself to rely on to do all the work, pay all the bills, and get yourself through all the stressful times, it would be so nice to have someone else shoulder the burden of things for a while. Someone to cherish and protect you.

The story about the past was suspenseful and interesting and the romance was steamy. It was just a good captive love story where the Hero really wanted to be a Hero. It would be a 5 star for me if it was a little longer with a bit more pulp. Though as is, I give it a solid four stars and I liked it quite a bit.
