“Will you help me remember?”
That’s the second thing I ask the stranger hovering just outside of my hospital room. To me, Decker Fredric is another nameless face in the crowd. To him, I’m a forgotten girl he hasn’t seen in years. But he agrees to be my crutch through the fog as if we were once friends.
Everything is a blank canvas spreading far and wide in front of me. Any direction I take, my steps stumble over the unknown. Decker becomes the only reliable constant in my life. I lean on him too hard, but he doesn’t seem to mind. His unwavering patience and guidance restore some semblance of normal I don’t recall having.
My attraction to Decker is instant, but he appears indifferent. Until the day his stare holds a bit too much heat. In return, I dare to let my touch linger. Our hugs cling tighter than a simple embrace should. But we have no business defying the distinct line cutting between us.
Decker Fredric was never mine to keep. But that doesn’t stop me from wanting him to be.
“The world is your oyster and all that. Crack open the shell and slurp it down.”
Keeper is a Keeper! Decker and Delaney completely stole my heart with their story. I went into this story completely blind and it was a great surprise from the very start.
Decker has the ultimate bad boy image. Tattoos, rides a motorcycle, works at a bar, muscly. However, on the inside there is so much more to him. He is caring, protective, sweet and loyal. I couldn’t get enough of him. Delaney is a fighter and a survivor. She has been through a lot, she is having to learn about her life again after suffering a traumatic brain injury and losing her memory. I wanted to hug the woman, but I was also cheering her on from the very start.
Dell and Deck’s chemistry was amazing from the start. The instant friendship they formed that bloomed into so much more was beautiful. Deck was insanely supportive of Dell and doing everything he could to make things as easy as possible for her when he knew she was struggling. I loved everything about the two of them and am so happy they each of a second chance, especially for the fact that it is with each other.
Keeper was so much deeper than I could have ever expected. I didn’t expect a book to touch me as much as this one does. It is beautiful, emotional story that will have you in tears, swooning over Deck and cheering on Dell. This is a MUST READ and another top read of 2020!
