Review by Michelle:

Although it's not my favorite thing being late to the party and not discovering a book until long after its initial release, sometimes the good old TBR works with me instead of against me. In the case of Keep Me and Keep Her by Faith Andrews my lengthy TBR was definitely in my favor. I had yet to have a chance to read Keep Me but with the release of the sequel, Keep Her, I made it a point to take the opportunity to read both books back to back and got to skip the sometimes painful wait in between. Good thing too as Keep Me left me with a certain desperation to learn more about Beck as soon as possible.

Keep Her is cute and sweet, fun and playful. It was much more lighthearted than the first Grayson Siblings book but no less bumpy or dramatic. The easy, flirty banter between Riley and Beck from the very beginning was delightful and had me humming a certain catchy tune with a big smile on my face.

Beck and Riley fall hard and fast but come on, they have known each other most of their lives, it's only fitting that once they give their feelings the opportunity to grow, it ardently flourishes. We all know these two jumped into bed together one impulsive night which in turn ignited the spark that completely changed each of their individual courses and set them on a winding path together, but underneath the heat and the chemistry was a beautiful friendship that grew and grew. A friendship that warped and changed and became the steady backbone of their newfound love, the building block for a long and enduring romance. I love a relationship with a solid foundation of friendship, one in which you just know that if they can hold on to that connection in spite of all the challenges they are forced to face, there is nothing that can keep them apart.

Despite my consuming desire to delve into Riley and Beck's story I must admit I was a bit disgruntled with the way that their love affair started. It was easy to see that these two would be very good for each other in the end, but cheating casts a deep shadow over their blossoming romance. Or so I thought. At the risk of sounding cliché and pretty much like every cheater out there...it's not what you think. What a relief. Out from under the dilemma that comes with cheering on a relationship that began under the shadiest of circumstances, I was free to wholeheartedly root for these two and long for the happy ending they so deserved together.

This is one of those stories where you think you have all the information and you know exactly where things are headed as the majority of Keep Her overlaps with Keep Me. But you don't. Turns out there was a lot going on behind the scenes for Beck and Riley that we were not privy to in the first story and it just makes all of their twists and turns all the more surprising and fulfilling. And as with the first book there was quite the wrench thrown in right at the very end which keeps you on the edge of your seat until the last few pages.

Keep Her was an entertaining, enjoyable read with two fun and appealing characters. If you liked Keep Me you will love Keep Her. I am keeping my fingers crossed for a certain intriguing sibling, though he is not a Grayson, to have a chance to tell his story as well.
