Review Blitz – Keeping Him (Bishop Brothers, #4) by Kennedy Fox

KEEPING HIM, a childhood friends-to-lovers romance filled with slow-burning angst, tension, witty humor, and swoon-worthy moments from USA Today bestselling author Kennedy Fox, is NOW LIVE!


Jackson Bishop is your typical playboy.

Unpredictable, charming, and overly confident.

Growing up in Texas, the ranch life is all he’s ever known. Horses and late night partying are his lifestyles, and all the local girls know it too. Riding lessons aren’t the only things taught at the stables, and he makes sure clients never leave unsatisfied. Everyone knows Jackson’s a wild card, but not everything is as it seems. He may be a womanizer on the surface, but he’s hiding deep feelings about the one who’s had his heart since he was a teen. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as roping her in and claiming her as his.

Kiera Young is well-known for her sassy nature and outgoing personality. Though she’s one of the best horse trainers in the area, she’s never been able to tame her best friend and the man she’s secretly loved since she was fifteen—Jackson Bishop. She’s waited years for him to confess his true feelings but as time goes on, she decides she’s done waiting. Kiera finally meets a man who promises to give her the world, and when he pops the question, she says yes—knowing they’re both ready to settle down and start a family.

Even if her heart beats for another man.

Jackson’s certain he’s lost Kiera for good and has no one to blame but himself. However, on the day of her wedding, he can’t bring himself to watch the woman he loves walk down the aisle to someone else. Kiera’s already having second thoughts and knows she can’t get married without his support. It’s not until she’s at the altar that she realizes she can’t let Jackson go and will do whatever it takes to keep him—even if it means running out on her own wedding.

Keeping Him was a sexy, angsty, dramatic, and emotional slow burn friends-to-lovers romance, and I really enjoyed it! Kennedy Fox did a great job with the storyline and characters, and although Keeping Him wasn’t my favorite standalone in the Bishop Brothers series, it was an amazing way to conclude it!

   The storyline wasn’t quite what I expected. Friends-to-lovers is one of my favorite romance tropes, but Jackson and Kiera’s story didn’t fully progress how I thought or hoped it would. The first 50+% was honestly disappointing, and there were several plot twists that I really disliked. However, the last half or so was a thousand times better, and everything I could’ve hoped for with Jackson and Kiera’s story. There were a few aspects throughout that I didn’t care for, and there were a few secondary characters that I truly loathed and wished hadn’t been a part of the plot, but luckily everything turned out better than I imagined in the end.

   The characters, for the most part, were amazing. Jackson Bishop and Kiera Young were absolutely wonderful, and I loved them so much. Jackson and Kiera weren’t perfect and both had flaws, but I loved their personalities and super hot chemistry together, and how part of their relationship progressed throughout. I loved that Jackson and Kiera were childhood friends, and the close friendship and deep connection they had together. It was a special and unbreakable bond that most people would envy. I also loved reading the book from both Jackson and Kiera’s point of view, and all of their banter and interactions with each other. Jackson and Kiera’s story was a painful, heartbreaking, and sometimes difficult journey, but all of the ups and downs were completely worth it in the end. The ending was honestly the best part of the entire book, and made me so freaking happy. I also loved seeing so many familiar faces from previous books in the Bishop Brothers series, along with a few new ones. They made everything a lot more fun and entertaining, and I loved their addition to the story.

   Keeping Him was a sexy, angsty, and emotional slow burn standalone friends-to-lovers romance, and I would definitely recommend it and the entire Bishop Brothers series! Kennedy Fox took readers on an emotional roller coaster through all four books in the Bishop Brothers series, but especially in Keeping Him. Although Keeping Him wasn’t my favorite standalone in the series, this author duo did a fantastic job with Jackson and Kiera’s story, and I was very pleased with the outcome. I fell head over heels in love with the Bishop brothers, their significant others, and the entire Bishop family. The Bishop Brothers series was a wild and epic ride that I won’t soon forget, and I can’t wait to dive in to Kennedy Fox’s next release!

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
