Launch Day! ~ Keeping Her by Cora Carmack & Giveaway


Garrick Taylor and Bliss Edwards managed to find their happily-ever-after despite a rather . . . ahem . . . complicated start. By comparison, meeting the parents should be an absolute breeze, right?

But from the moment the pair lands in London, new snags just keep cropping up: a disapproving mother-in-law-to-be, more than one (mostly) minor mishap, and the realization that perhaps they aren't quite as ready for their future as they thought.

As it turns out, the only thing harder than finding love is keeping it.

My Thoughts:

5 stars -

What a fun novella for all of us Garrick and Bliss lovers.  I totally loved this story.

I will admit that I am always nervous about reading stories after a couple is together.  The idea of them ending up apart is always too much for me.  I need, I crave those HEA's.  But there was no need to worry.

Instead this story was full of humor and sexy as this couple worked through some of those sticky issues that come up when a two people get engaged.  Oh and we got a little tour around London.

Garrick! I so love you.  I love how he calls her love, even though I know it's just an English thing.  I love how he kept asking her to marry him at random times.  I loved how he calmed her fears before they left for London to meet his family.  I loved how he was his own self even though he came from some serious money.  He made his own path.  And I loved how Bliss kept him on that path.  Truly, these two belong together and I loved it.

I loved seeing them in Faking It and I'm hoping for a peek at them in Finding it too.  BTW, there was the first chapter of Finding in the back of this novella and I devoured it.  That one will be good.

If you haven't read Losing It, you so should.  It's great New Adult.  Check out my review here.  You can find my review of Faking it here.  This is a great series and I can't wait for more.

Keeping It is published by William Morrow Books, an imprint of HarperCollins.
