CLICK ON ME TO GET TO GOODREADS














Abducted at eighteen. Held captive for 15 months.

It reads like one of those headlines. And yes, I did it. I stole her. Nora, with her long dark hair and silky skin. She’s my weakness, my obsession.

I’m not a good man. I never pretended to be one. She can love me, but she can’t change me.

I can, however, change her.

My name is Julian Esguerra, and Nora is mine to keep.

***Keep Me is the sequel to Twist Me, told from Nora & Julian’s POV.***





 
 




This was me after the first book so that I needed to read the second one. 




How do I feel after finishing this book?
 
 
 


But I will give it a try. Even Alice agrees with me on this one.

 
 
I can't deny though that once again
 
 
 
 
 
I would like to warn you that this is not for everyone, there is Stockholm Syndrome and in some ways, as people always perceive things differently not all of it is consensual.


This is the second book in the series and it picks up right where the last one finished. The island isn't safe anymore and after Beth's death it just isn't the same either. Julian survived the warehouse explosion and this time Nora has gone willingly with Julian. Columbia is the new/old to fortress that used to belong to his father. Protected from all the enemies that Julian has.  

I liked the dynamics more of this relationship then in book 1.  Although I've given it less stars. I'll tell you on further in my review.

Some parts of the book were really hard to read because of the emotional turmoil and Nora's feelings and emotions. I mean I cried on the effing tram at six o'clock in the morning on the way to work and I like to add I don't cry due to the fact that I'm an ugly crier back on to my review. I don't mind reading out of my comfort zone and sometimes it is even refreshing.

Julian is obsessed with Nora to the point that he forces her hand to marry him with the threat of killing Jake again.  He also plants trackers on her which makes him feel better. Not one but three.


“Instead of a deluded psycho who thinks he's doing the right thing, my new husband is simply a man without conscience”  
The obsession runs so deep that he  can't recognize the twisted love that he has for Nora.

“The desire to possess her is violent, all-consuming. It’s an obsession that goes beyond a simple sexual need, though my body burns for her. I don’t just want to fuck her; I want to imprint myself on her, to mark her from the inside out, so that she will never belong to any man but me. I want to own her completely.” 

My mind was battered with all the emotions and it was hard to comprehend Julian. I loved that we got his point of view.  Which I was intrigued about since I first read book 1. 

They have a twisted love which I think only they understand.


 “Will you ever let me go?” I murmur, remembering our long-ago conversation. His lips twitch in a faint smile. He remembers too. “No,” he replies softly. “Never.” We lie in silence for a few moments, and then he asks quietly, “Do you want me to let you go?” “No, Julian.” I close my eyes, a smile curving my own lips. “Never.”

There isn’t really anything majorly that I can nitpick about this book but I mean come on Julian was in a warehouse explosion in book 1 and then in book 2 he survives a plane crash I mean come on really? Not bloody liking to be honest.

It’s like the dude is Super Julian *cough* I means superman of course.

So hate me all you want but I won't change my mind on that one.

Nora had the patience of a saint when loving Julian
I'd been dropping into bed at night
