A first kiss that changed everything.
He was the most feared guy in high-school.
Guarded. Angry. A fighter.
But when I caught him watching me with his captivating green eyes I saw something more. Something protective and kind.
He warned me to stay away from him.
Until I didn’t and he kissed me. A knee weakening, body tingling kiss that left me breathless. And scared the hell out of me.
He warned me never to come near him again or next time he wouldn’t let me go.
That was eleven years ago.
We aren’t teenagers anymore. He has probably forgotten me. He’s a famous rock star now. I’m a dance instructor with a broken dream and desperate for a job.
So, when we cross paths again I don’t expect him to remember me.
And his warning eleven years ago? I’m about to find out exactly what that meant.
WOW! What a book! Second chance and a rock star romance…I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Kept From You is the fourth book in the series, and it’s Killian’s and Savvy’s chance to tell their story, and what a story it is! Killian aka Kite and Savvy have known each other since high school. They weren’t friends, but they weren’t enemies either. Kite had the reputation of being scary in school…fighting a lot. But, he fought for the underdogs, the kids that were bullied. Savvy wasn’t really frightened of Kite; she was drawn to him. All they really shared were some words and an unforgettable kiss before Savvy left town. But, they never forgot one another.
“God, it was incredible. It was my first kiss, and I had nothing to compare it with. But it was life changing because every kiss from now on would be compared to Killian’s.” ~Savvy
Eleven years will pass before the two meet again, and this time they will share a lot more than a few words! Ahhh….this is such a GREAT story!
Kite and Savvy are opposites in some ways. He was dark, and she was light. However, the two did share painful pasts but in very different ways. Each had a dream that they went after. As I always say, I love dual POVs, it gives such insight to the character’s thoughts. You had to have insight into Killian’s character to know what made him tick. I loved discovering that he had always been drawn to Savvy.
“But her long red curls had been a beacon and I’d been the lost ship looking for a way out of the angry, stormy sea of emotions.”~ Killian
He just wouldn’t allow himself to have her, and as you will discover, some were very good reasons. I love his protectiveness of her. And, Savvy, I couldn’t help but love and admire her. Life gave her a crap hand, but instead of wallowing in it, she was determined to make it better. She always showed people kindness even when she was in pain or suffering. I love when two characters complete each other, and these two certainly did.
The plot twists were excellent as well. Kite has a past and not a good one, and it just added to the story. I also loved the secondary characters, many from previous novels, even though this is my first book by this writer. Now, I’ll be going back and reading the other books in the series until the next one comes out! I always love finding great new writers so I’m looking forward to reading more by Nashoda Rose!
