Keeping Her (Losing It #1.5) by Cora Carmack


Keeping Her: A Losing It Novella

Synopsis:

Garrick Taylor and Bliss Edwards managed to find their happily-ever-after despite a rather . . . ahem . . . complicated start. By comparison, meeting the parents should be an absolute breeze, right?

But from the moment the pair lands in London, new snags just keep cropping up: a disapproving mother-in-law-to-be, more than one (mostly) minor mishap, and the realization that perhaps they aren't quite as ready for their future as they thought.


As it turns out, the only thing harder than finding love is keeping it.

Review:

After being disappointed in my re-read of Losing It I wasn't sure I would actually read Keeping Her (the reason I re-read Losing It in the first place). I didn't care for either of the characters in the first book, but I thought I have it might as well give it a try. I was surprised to find that it was much better than the first book. 
*some spoilers ahead*

Garrick and Bliss have been dating for a while now and plan on getting married. The only thing left to do is take Bliss to London to meet Garrick's parents. Bliss is very stressed out about this. Garrick's mom is very overbearing and Bliss is worried she will hate her. If she does what will that do to them? 

Garrick is so much sweeter in this book. I actually liked him. I saw why Bliss might be with him, and not just because he has an accent. He was wonderful. 

Bliss though turns into this weak girl when she gets around his family and friends. At least at first. She is so worried about doing something wrong, and about what she has already messed up, that she is kind of a mess. She does quickly pull it together though and is a formidable foe for Garrick's mom. Of course standing up to his mom wins her over and quickly they are like the best of friends. I buy that one. Yeah. 

The rest of the story is just Bliss thinking she might be pregnant and freaking out. I was reading and noticing I only had a few more pages left and thought really? This is over already? It didn't really feel like a full story, just a short chapter that should be in a longer work. Not sure what else I was expecting, but it just seems to end suddnely. It was just like yey! Bliss and mom are bff, she is not pregnant, hooray! End of story. It was just missing something to make it really complete. Or maybe the end was too rushed. Something was off for me. Oh well, it was much better than the first book.
