Happy Book Birthday
Drama. Young adult love dripping with sweetness. Drama. Hot young adult sexiness. And you guessed it drama!! A great ending to Kyler and Faye’s story and a fantastic add to the Kennedy Boys series by Siobhan Davis.
Last time in the Kennedy Boys series, Kyler had learned shocking news that had him reeling and sent him on a lonesome quest to confront his past. Knowing what it’s like to deal with adversity, Faye will not let the love of her life face his alone and will give him the support he needs when he reveals truth behind his tormented past.
But those disclosures are only the beginning. Even though they’re finally free to publicly acknowledge their relationship, not everyone is happy about them being together. Faye, Kyler and the entire Kennedy clan will have to fight together against their enemies, especially after new and grave allegations have been made against Kyler. Can they figure out who’s behind them and what their agendas are before it’s too late for Ky? How much is Faye will to risk to save him?
Keeping Kyler starts right where Losing Kyler left off but I’m not going to comment more on the plot, other than my previous synopsis as there are many twists and turns I’d rather not spoil. Perhaps a couple are easy enough to guess but there are a lot of loose ends that Siobhan skillfully ties in a way I did not see coming. Needless to say, the mystery (ok I’ll give you a hint, there’s a murder to be solved) and romance (there’s lots of incredibly sweet, swoony and sexy moments), and yes of course the teen drama, kept me glued to my seat and frantically turning page after page until the very end.
Faye and Kyler have resolved some of their issues, they’ve faced difficult ordeals individually and as a couple, but there are still more obstacles to tackle on their road to happiness which they need to face together and Keeping Kyler shows how much they’ve grown and keep doing so as the love, trust and intimacy between them keeps on building.
The writing and pacing is great and while Faye and Kyler keep being the center of this story, Siobhan deftly reveals answers to previous events while laying ground for future stories in the series. From the James and Alex situation, to the not so sweet in this installment Brad, to the reformed Kal whose story I can’t wait to read and is up next in the series.
Keeping Kyler is book #3 in young adult The Kennedy Boys Series by Siobhan Davis. It’s written from both points of view with a happy ending and a lead in to the next book. I recommend it for readers that like teen drama and angst revolving around family secrets and taboo relationships, all wrapped up in a sexy, swoony romance.
Author’s note: Series is only suitable for readers age 17+ due to mature content and themes. The first three books in this series must be read together.
