He can’t change who he is...
A horrific childhood has made Silas the man he is today: dangerous, distrustful, and demanding. He’s lived in self-imposed solitude, convinced that no woman could ever accept his need for absolute control—in business and pleasure. That is, until a young violinist walks into one of his buildings and into his life.
She can’t change what she wants...
Haley has been struggling to fulfill her father’s dying wish: to attend a prestigious music school in New York City. But even working two jobs, she can’t afford the tiniest of apartments. Seeing her hopeless and near tears, Silas vows to help and protect her, no matter the cost to himself. But when Haley meets his every demand with unwavering acceptance and love, he is overwhelmed by her goodness and gentle spirit. He knows that the dark stain on his soul can never be erased—and rather than risk destroying the most beautiful thing he's ever experienced, he knows he'll have to do the hardest thing he's ever had to face. Let her go. But he's totally unprepared for the lengths Haley will go to fight for his love and a future brighter than the sun.
Kept is easy to relate to when you have been there and know just how far you will go when you've lost everything and have no where to turn.
That's where we find Haley is from the start which is why I think I liked her so much. I could see myself in her shoes because I've been her before.
It took a lot longer for Silas to grow on me because he was such a punk through most of the book and by the end I was still a little unsure about him and his relationship with Haley but in the end despite their own baggage and backgrounds I think they both found their sense of home.
My feeling in the end about Kept is that I think I liked it more for its personal journey and my relation to Haley that made me like this book more than her intimate relationship with Silas. I think this book is really great and worth the read for both the sexy readers and the emotional ones.
