Kept Book Review

23493729Kept ( The Enforcers #3)

By: Maya Banks

Goodreads Summary: From the author of Mastered and Dominated comes the third Enforcers novel—the searing story of a woman who finds sanctuary in surrender…
He can’t change who he is…
A horrific childhood has made Silas the man he is today: dangerous, distrustful, and demanding. He’s lived in self-imposed solitude, convinced that no woman could ever accept his need for absolute control—in business and pleasure. That is, until a young violinist walks into one of his buildings and into his life.
She can’t change what she wants…
Haley has been struggling to fulfill her father’s dying wish: to attend a prestigious music school in New York City. But even working two jobs, she can’t afford the tiniest of apartments. Seeing her hopeless and near tears, Silas vows to help and protect her, no matter the cost to himself. But when Haley meets his every demand with unwavering acceptance and love, he is overwhelmed by her goodness and gentle spirit. He knows that the dark stain on his soul can never be erased—and rather than risk destroying the most beautiful thing he’s ever experienced, he knows he’ll have to do the hardest thing he’s ever had to face. Let her go. But he’s totally unprepared for the lengths Haley will go to fight for his love and a future brighter than the sun…

What I though: This is the 3rd book in the Enforcers series. The first two book where Drake`s and Evangeline story. The Enforcers series is about a group of guys that work for Drake. Now you dont know exactly what they do, but you know it isn’t legal. Drake is the head of this makeshift crime family. Now these guys aren`t bad people but when it comes to their women they will keep what is theirs safe. I have to say I really like Drakes men. They are all so charming and hot. All of Drakes brothers will be in all the books and will play a role. I really enjoyed the first book Mastered. I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars on goodreads. For a reason I am not going to get into too much  on here, but I gave the 2nd book Dominated a 3 out of 5 Stars. The 3rd book is called Kept and I have to say that this is the best one so far. Kept is Silas and Haley`s story. If you have not read the first three books I would not read past this. I do like this series and I cant wait to see where Maya takes it. Because this is the 3rd book in the series this post will have spoilers in it.

Silas is Drakes Enforcer. When someone need to be taken care of Silas is the guy to do it. Silas is what you call a lone wolf. He is very OCD and paranoid. He puts fear into everyone  but I wouldn’t say hes a bad person. Hes that person that is quite and sees everything. His past is bad and everything he has done has made him believe that he has no soul. He keeps everyone at an arms length. In the first book I thought he had feelings for Evangeline. I know that he said he never had romantic feels for her but I didn’t see any sister feelings. It was just the way he was with her but whatever. I dont think he knows what its like to be loved by someone. Not being loved by the people who made you does something to a person. But Silas knows how to take care of women. He will show them with the respect that they deserve. Having a relationship with a woman is different. Never having had a romantic relationship before I would think he needs a learning curve.

Haley is lost. She just lost her father and her mother has a child. Moved to New York to chase her dreams. I know it sounds so cliche but its more for her father. Has he was laying on his death bed he made her promise to go and play. He made her go to New York to play at this music school. She was very good at the violin. Her father knew he was dying so he wanted to take care of his little girl so that she would be set when he was gone but that`s not what happened. When he signed up for a life insurance what he didnt know was it was all a scam. She didnt have the a full ride to school so she still has to pay for a lot like housing. That kind of sucks when you move to one of the most expensive places on earth. Haley works 2 jobs and goes to school. She needs a new place to live. Checking out this apartment place to see if they have anything and if its even in her price range. When what they have isnt in her price range she leaves upset. Silas was watching on his computers that oversee his place. When he saw how sad she was he just knows that he needs to do something. There is something pulling her to him. He calls down to see what she wanted and made plans to help her with out her knowing why. 2 or 3 days later she moves in. Silas keeps an eye on her and her schedule. She goes to school, then to work and maybe her 2nd job then home to practice. Sometimes she doesn’t even sleep. Late at night when she’s practicing Silas likes to listen. It gives him the calm he needs. One day she is running late. At first he thinks nothing of it maybe she was running late from work. Its been way to long and now he knows something happened. When he finds Haley bruised and bloody. All Silas can see is red. He takes her in and makes sure that nothing happens to her. He wants to give her something she doesn’t have. He wants to be there for her. Haley doesn’t really think that Silas likes her. They grow close and she gives him everything he has never had. Silas keeps her away from almost everything with Drake. She knows his brothers because they keep an eye on her when Silas cant but a woman can only be 2nd place so many times. When Silas has to keep taking care of Evangeline, Haley cant help but think that she is never going to matter to him. I know that by this time you know that he doesn`t want to do this. He loves Haley. But with the threat looming he has to keep Drake and his wife safe no matter what. Can Haley put up with being 4th in Silas’s life after Drake, his Wife Evangeline , or his brothers? Can Silas really give Haley everything she has given him? I gave this book 5 stars on goodreads.
