✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ His for Keeps by Theodora Taylor


His for Keeps - 50 Loving States, Tennessee
The Very Bad Fairgoods, Book 1
By: Theodora Taylor
Narrated by: Clementine Dove

Welcome to his extremely sexy dark side....

Everyone thinks Colin Fairgood is exactly what his PR machine tells them - a country superstar with a killer smile and dazzling blue eyes. 

But I met him before his country makeover and fame. Colin has a dark side…one that takes me places I've never been. One that makes me want to do very bad things with him. One that makes me scared of him. And even more scared of myself. 

I don't know what kind of endgame he's running on my heart, but he's definitely playing for keeps. And if I'm not careful, he's going to win. 

But what will happen when he finds out about my past? And discovers all my secrets? 

One thing’s for sure: when country superstar Colin Fairgood collides with me, a songwriter with everything to lose, it’s going to be one hell of a story. 

Listeners beware: The first scorching hot, dark, stand-alone romance in the Very Bad Fairgoods series is not for the faint of heart or sensitive. It’s guaranteed to please those who prefer extra-hot loving with a wickedly kinky hero. But seriously, do not click the heat unless you know how to handle the flame!

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

I wasn't sure exactly what I was getting into with this book. I've read a couple of Theodora Taylor's books, but she's still fairly new to me. I did expect things to get steamy and let me just say that was putting it mildly. There is a warning at the end of the blurb, and I would urge taking it seriously because some things in this book are definitely not for everyone. For me, I reminded myself to keep an open mind and settled in for this couple's journey. Still, there were a few things that bothered me - I'm not going to elaborate because a couple of things would venture into spoiler territory. What I will say is that the biggest irritation for me was that I really, really wanted to shake the daylights out of pretty much every character. Okay, every character except Kyra's grandmother. I loved her to pieces. Now, here's where I'll add that even when a character was driving me crazy, I couldn't stop listening. I couldn't stop wanting things to work out. The longer secrets were kept, the more nervous I got about how things could work out. So, whether I wanted to shake a character or not, I was invested. Then we have the narration by Clementine Dove, and it was superb. I could seriously listen to this narrator over and over and never get tired of hearing her. So, when it's all said and done, His for Keeps was a little bit of a tight rope walk for me. Parts of it were way outside my comfort zone, but I think it's good to push myself beyond my limits occasionally, and in this case, it worked out well.
