‘Yours To Keep’ is a beautifully written story and one could easily relate it to real life.Well, at least, I could. It reminds me that sometimes, when you want something and yet the thing does not exactly belong to you, no matter what you do to pursue it, it will not be yours. Quite pointless to pursue something that you know that it will not be yours, is it not meant to be, isn’t it? if it’s yours, then it is yours, no matter what. If it is not, then it is not. But then again, that doesn’t mean you can keep what actually belongs to other people. You cannot keep what is not yours, for retribution will come without failed.
I learn alot from this contemporary novel. It shows you the meaning of belonging among many other themes in the story. It teaches you to do the best, and let Fate do the rest.
It’s a very sweet story despite of the slow, leisurely pace. I like this story very much, and I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received an ARC of this book from Carina Press via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review, and I’m definitely not compensated in any ways for writing this review.
Sean Kowalski no sooner leaves the army than he’s recruited by Emma Shaw to be her fake fiancÃ©. Emma needs to produce a husband-to-be for her grandmother’s upcoming visit, and, though Sean doesn’t like the deception, he could use the landscaping job Emma’s offering while he decides what to do with his civilian life. And, despite his attraction to Emma, there’s no chance he’ll fall for a woman with deep roots in a town he’s not planning to call home.
Emma’s not interested in a real relationship either; not with a man whose idea of home is wherever he drops his duffel bag. No matter how amazing his “pretend” kisses are.
