Keeping Kyler by Siobhan Davis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Final Score - 4.5 Stars!!!
This book was an emotional rollercoaster, and I fear I will not be able to re-read this series in the near future. I may need to give myself time to recover.
Picking up where the last book (Losing Kyler) left off, Keeping Kyler starts with a bang and does not let up until the very end! I was pulled right away into happenings and throughout the entire story the adrenaline was definitely kicking in. Twist after twist is thrown at us. New information is constantly being handed off. Pieces of information you may have overlooked or written off in the first book come back to bite you in this one. The revelations in this book are mind-blowing, but of course at the crux of the story is Kyler and Faye's love for one another and how that love can not only change a person for the better, but helps to heal them as well.
Love and all that it encompasses is truly a thing of beauty to be valued and cherished.
The story does a wonderful job of bringing everything together from the prior books as well as adding more layers. The details are so well executed, you’d fear they'd be jam packed - not so. With so many things happening throughout the story, each one is carefully crafted and executed so well. This story will truly blow you mind in so many ways. Honestly, I wanted to scream my head off!
The emotional impact of this book ... gah! I was in knots for hours reading it. So much so, I had to take small breaks here and there or else I would never be able to handle it all. Reading the events from Kyler’s perspective absolutely broke my heart and ripped it apart. He was the character I was most worried about in this book - I feared he wouldn't make it through to the other side after the truths were revealed in the last book. I just wanted to be Faye in that moment and cuddle/hold him to my breast, he was so lost.
The only issue I had with this book was the dueling PoV's - Kyler's and Faye's. I want to learn all that I could about Kyler. We've already read from Faye's PoV in the previous books, but Kyler still remained an enigma of sorts. However, all that brooding and hostility and I have to say Faye's inner thoughts helped to sooth that destructive balm.
This book was the perfect ending to the first part of the Kennedy Boys Series, as I consider them to be one big book and not 3 separate ones.I can't wait to read more of this series as all the brother's will get a chance to shine - I'm especially looking forward to getting to know Keven & Kaden, the oldest brothers as they aren't mentioned much but in passing. Kalvin's story is another I'm extremely interested in reading as well as Brad's.
