The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Blog Tour for Nashoda Rose's "Kept from You (Tear Asunder #4)".
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.
I have read almost every book that Nashoda Rose has released and I have not once been disappointed by her work. This author consistently delivers all of the things that I love in a good romance novel: a gripping story, passionate love and my favourite kind of book boyfriend-An alpha. "Kept from You" again ticked all of the boxes for me. I absolutely loved Savvy and Killian's story.
"Savvy Grady was going to place her good bits in my hand,
and when she did, I'd close my fist and never let go."
The first part of this story was all about when Savvy and Killian first met as teenagers. I discovered Killian and Savvy's past and the reasons behind Killian's protective nature. Killian was the epitome of an alpha-male, even as a young man he showed signs of the adult that he would become. After learning of his childhood, it was easy to see why he acted the way he did and I realised how much he needed to be loved. I enjoyed reading about Killian and Savvy and watching their first attraction to each other grow and finding out where their love began.
"You were always meant to be mine, Savvy."
In the second part of the story, I was brought into the present day and boy, did things hot up for Savvy and Killian. This part of the story had me hooked, not wanting to give up reading for anything. I was desperate for the pair to take the second chance that they had been given. I was rooting for Savvy and Killian to make their relationship work. The couple were just perfect for each other and I was ecstatic that they had found each other again. Savvy and Killian together made my heart rate soar, I was so excited for what lay ahead. Unfortunately not everything went perfectly for Savvy and Killian and there was a part of the story that left me wondering if an HEA was actually going to happen. My heart began to break for Killian and Savvy but I tried to remain hopeful that their love would prevail.
"He was my home. Wherever that may be,
and however long it took to get there, this man was my home."
"Kept from You" was another fantastic addition to a brilliant series and it gets 4.5 hearts from me.
Excerpt copyright 2017
The thin sweet crunch mixing with the light, airy cream tickled my tongue.
Indulging was rare. Indulging in something like crème brûlée was heaven on a spoon.
But what made it even more like heaven was that Killian watched me with desire blazing in his eyes.
I swallowed, then with the tip of my tongue, I slid it over my lower lip, licking the remnants of cream.
“Fuck,” he growled.
I secretly smiled, heart pumping wildly.
I’d never been sexy or tried to be sexy, but I wanted to be with Killian. He made it easy for me to be brave.
Lights dim, candles flickering, the soft jazz music in the background, skin tingling from the sexy-as-hell man next to me, yeah, I was brave.
I dipped the spoon in again, but Killian’s fingers spanned my wrist, stopping me.
I met his eyes and without a word, but knowing exactly what he wanted by the silent exchange of his steady expression, I released the spoon to him.
His attention went to the dessert where he tapped the light thin sugar shell before breaking through and sinking into the airy lightness.
He lifted the overfilled spoon at the same time as his eyes.
I thought he was going to take a bite himself, but he held the spoon out to me. “Open.”
I nervously laughed, thinking he was kidding; it was a huge mouthful. “It’s too much.”
“I know. Open, Savvy,” he said.
Oh, God, my belly dropped and my sex clenched. I swallowed, licking my lips again.
“No,” he said with a firm voice. “I didn’t ask you to lick your lips. Although that is fuckin’ delectable as hell.” His tone lowered further. “I asked you to open your mouth.”
My eyes widened. Holy. Fuck. That was hot. Demanding and a little scary because him using that voice I’d pretty much do anything he asked.
I opened, and he slid the dessert into my mouth, and since there was so much, it hit the roof, sides, and back of my throat. He didn’t remove the spoon right away and watched as I struggled not to pull away.
When I was just about to say screw it, he said, “My cock will fill your mouth a hell of a lot more than this.”
I nearly choked. And I would’ve if he didn’t slowly remove the spoon, my lips dragging over the cool, smooth surface of the spoon to make certain I took the entire dessert.
His elbow rested on the table, spoon in his hand, eyes on mine as I swallowed little by little until it was gone. The entire time I thought about his cock.
