KEEP ME by Anna Zaires
Abducted at eighteen. Held captive for 15 months.
It reads like one of those headlines. And yes, I did it. I stole her. Nora, with her long dark hair and silky skin. She’s my weakness, my obsession.
I’m not a good man. I never pretended to be one. She can love me, but she can’t change me.
I can, however, change her.
My name is Julian Esguerra, and Nora is mine to keep.
KEEP ME by Anna Zaires
So, this is the second book in the twist me series and it is just as good if not better than the first one.
My wish to know what was going on inside Julian’s head was granted and I am so feckin’ hooked on that dark and naughty man.
And Nora! In the name of the wee man! I love how her fire and spirit came out.
She is no longer a timid wee mouse (even though I loved her in the first book), nope, she is a tiger with claws.
Loved it all.
Yup, this wee sweetie has grown some claws and even though she is still a little scared of Julian she is not afraid of trying to put him in his place. Well, at least she gives it a go lol.
The thing is though, she is utterly in love with him, All of him, the dark and the light. And it just keeps getting more intense for her.
She is testing the boundaries to see how far she can go with Julian and how much trouble she’ll get into.
She’s also exploring and admitting to the darker side of herself. Not only does she like the pain but needs it.
“Is that what you want, my pet?” He pinches my nipples forcefully, then rolls them between his fingers, causing me to bite back a moan of pleasure tinged with pain. His voice deepens, turning dark and seductive. “Do you want me to hurt you… to mark your soft skin and make you scream?” I lick my lips, tremors of heat and anxious excitement running through my body. I should be frightened, particularly after our conversation tonight, but I’m desperately aroused instead. As perverse as it is, I want this too—I want the ferocity of his desire, the cruelty of his affection. I want to lose myself in the twisted rapture of his embrace, to forget about right and wrong and simply feel. “Yes,” I whisper, for the first time admitting to my own dark needs—to the aberrant craving he has instilled in me. “Yes, I do…”
Julian is equal parts evil and charming. I love this guy!
We get to see things from his point of view in this book and a little about his childhood as well. As I suspected, he had a crappy upbringing with a, particularly cruel father.
He has a void in him that only Nora can fill. She’s the only one to ground him and bring him some semblance of joy.
His obsession with her grows and grows and while the measures he takes to control her and keep her safe are unfair and wrong, I just can’t seem to dislike the man.
The desire to possess her is violent, all-consuming. It’s an obsession that goes beyond a simple sexual need, though my body burns for her. I don’t just want to fuck her; I want to imprint myself on her, to mark her from the inside out, so that she will never belong to any man but me.
I have highlighted so many sex scenes in this book that I had a really hard time picking one out for the review. They were all extremely hot and passionate.
Pulling her folds apart with my fingers, I lick the area directly around her clit, tasting her essence, then push my tongue inside, penetrating her as deeply as I can. She shudders, her hands finding their way down to my head, and I feel her nails digging into my skull. One of her fingers brushes against my scar, sending a bolt of pain through me, but I ignore that too, focusing solely on pleasuring her, on making her come. I revel in every drop of moisture I wring from her body, every gasp and moan that escapes her lips as my tongue works over the bundle of nerves at the peak of her sex. She begins to tremble, her thighs vibrating with tension, and I taste a spurt of salty-sweet moisture as she comes with a helpless cry, her hips lifting off the bed and her pussy grinding against my tongue. When she finally goes limp, breathing heavily from her release, I crawl over her and kiss the delicate shell of her ear. I’m not done with her yet, not by a long shot.
Final Thoughts on KEEP ME by Anna Zaires
There was so much action is this book that it kept my heart pounding all throughout. There were also a couple of characters that I need to know more about.
Two very alpha men, Lucas and Stephan. And I believe they have their own story, so I am jumpin’ on the spot. Canny wait!
