If you re looking to be charmed and glued to your seat, Keep is the book for you I cannot reccomend this series enough if you a romantic suspense fan, especially if you like your romanceon the steamy side of things Once you re done, don t forget to pick up Surrender

    After enjoying Staythan I had any other book of this genre I held a copy of this very apprehensively in my hands for a couple of days, too scared to start When you absolutely adore the opening book to a series there is always a niggling worry that it s follow up just won t live up to your expectations But I knew once I d reached the end of this is that I will absolutely buy anything Karyn Lawrence ever releases, this book was positively amazing Although you can easily read this as a sta After enjoying Staythan I had any other book of this genre I held a copy of this very apprehensively in my hands for a couple of days, too scared to start When you absolutely adore the opening book to a series there is always a niggling worry that it s follow up just won t live up to your expectations But I knew once I d reached the end of this is that I will absolutely buy anything Karyn Lawrence ever releases, this book was positively amazing Although you can easily read this as a stand alone, for it to really work I urge everyone to give Stay a read first Book two of The Command series gives us the story of Kara Hayward and Shawn Dunn, the siblings of Laurel and Jason, as they go from attempting to start a relationship to dealing with the further fallout from Laurel s kidnapping in Stay He d ruined her shoes, air travel, and sex with other men Pretty good for three measly days. She d brought a man down with a skillet and was ready to add this lamp to her list of unconventional weapons. Kara is quite emotionally damaged, mainly from her very recent divorce and the pitiful, domineering man she was married to She s extremely head strong and her temper is astronomical at times which often gets her into quite an argument with whoever is on her bad side This is one woman who you would not want to give an order to, she will take you down with as much as a glare or a most certainly a kitchen utensil She is never once a damsel in distress and her strength and her self sacrificing makes it impossible to not admire her She is one tough cookie inside and out and I loved reading as Shawn tried to break down her walls On a random note, one of the things I really loved about Kara was her height, in every book you read the female always seems to be a tiny little thing but refreshingly she was actually tall, it s nice to know that some authors do realise that not all women have to be short to be cute You might as well enjoy the ride down to hell, she thought, and not make it too easy on him. Kara disabled his ability to think Around her, he didn t know down from up Good choices from bad ones Lust from whatever this was. Shawn was utterly delectable, he had just the right amount of attitude and charm and I think I actually fell for him quicker than Kara managed to He is a man of actionsthan of words but seeing as those actions are either heart meltingly sweet or pants droppingly hot I really don t have any complaint He is absolutely determined to get Kara to cave to him in every way he wants and the ways that he goes about it are hilarious He always knows he s going to rub her the wrong way no pun intended but his mind is always so set on the end result that he never backs down from an idea or manipulation He is very commanding and often a total and utter domineering arse but I couldn t help but love him.Where Stay was full of sexual tension, Keep is overflowing with sex hot enough to scorch your hands, make sure you have plenty of cold beer on stand by to read this with This was another delightful story of love, passion and suspense and I found myself completely captivated from the first word to the last and I could feel every emotion and explosion from every page Karyn, you really know how to write a villain and one in this, who I shall leave nameless, scares the absolute hell out of me Thank you so much and well done for writing a book that perfectly captivated everything I was looking and hoping for, and then some, in this sequel and the set up for Surrender has left me gleefully rubbing my hands together in anticipation for the continuation of everyone s story I m now off to buy the shiniest most gorgeous red heels I can find

    This is a great romantic suspense series Action packed This is Kara and Shawn s story.The Hayward sisters are strong and feisty hellcats on the outside with sweet marshmallowy interiors, and Kara, Laurel s big sister whom we met in Stay, does not disappoint Shawn Dunn also proves himself a great leading man alpha male, despite lacking the rugged exterior of his US Marshall baby brother, Jason.The action starts right from the beginning and really doesn t let up Shawn and Kara had some fantast This is a great romantic suspense series Action packed This is Kara and Shawn s story.The Hayward sisters are strong and feisty hellcats on the outside with sweet marshmallowy interiors, and Kara, Laurel s big sister whom we met in Stay, does not disappoint Shawn Dunn also proves himself a great leading man alpha male, despite lacking the rugged exterior of his US Marshall baby brother, Jason.The action starts right from the beginning and really doesn t let up Shawn and Kara had some fantastic chemistry in Stay and their attraction picks up right where it left off In fact, it just gets steamier And Kara proves the Hayward sisters are not to be trifled with Although ultimately we have, aside from the continuing cat and mouse game with Juric, another Dunn and Hayward pairing.As the events in Keep begin, Juric is still a threat as we catch up with Kara as she s briefly in NYC for work relating to her corporate job in the Netherlands An incident occurs, and Shawn who is also in NYC for business , is tasked with checking on Kara This is no chore for Shawn as he has been attracted to Kara since they met and has not kept his attraction to himself, despite warnings from Jason And Kara s been running from their chemistry attraction, not wanting to be hurt by a professed rake Kara returns to Munich with Shawn in a somewhat humorous situation with cancelled flights , and the action ramps up again Ultimately Shawn and Kara end up entwined in some intense romantic action scenes with twists and turns that throw the reader for a loop The scene at the brewery gala is particularly intense.I feel this series would have been fine to have have ended as a duet involving the Hayward sisters and the Dunn brothers, but in the last chapter we get a sneak peek at the next book, Surrender to be released in April 2015 as per the author s website which will be Ethan and Olivia s story we meet Captain Olivia Wallace in the last chapter of Keep If the writing remains as solid as in the first two installments, Surrender will not disappoint
