Sexy, tatted up, underwear model Marcus Grayson is every girl’s dream—or more likely worst nightmare. He’s a player, a self-proclaimed bachelor for life, and he’s got no problem living up to his man-whore status. But when his older sister’s friend comes back from the past, he may just have the chance to turn some of his adolescent fantasies into reality.
Tessa Bradley is a self-sufficient, take-no-bull, single mother—well, now she is. Finally rid of her abusive, alcoholic ex, she’s making a new life for herself and catching up with old friends; the ones she was forced to break ties with because of her controlling husband. When she runs into Marcus, her friend Riley’s once-adorable turned smoking-hot little brother, she has no idea how he’s about to rock her world.
You wanted me then, now you can have me. Just promise you’ll Keep Me…
Keep Me by Faith Andrews. Let me sum up this book in three words: Marcus freakin Grayson. HOLLA!!!! Some read a prologue and are hooked; some read a synopsis and are hooked. I was hooked by the first chapter.
Now, I would like to know about this Marcus Grayson you speak of Faith Andrews.
1. What does he look like?
2. What does he do for a living?
3. Does he talk dirty in bed?
Answer to question No. 1
Are you kidding me dude??? Okay so if that’s what Marcus looks like, then totally moving on to questions 2.
He is an “Underwear model”!! Stop!! Just about 85% convinced. Question 3 please.
You wanna know if Marcus talks dirty…HMM..let’s see….
“I mean this in the nicest way possible, baby…get on all fours.”
I laughed, even though there was nothing funny about it. From anyone else it would’ve sounded demeaning, but it got me so hot I didn’t even think twice. “Like this?” I teased as I inched my way up and bent my body into a seductive curve.
“Exactly like that,” he growled as I felt his body join mine on the mattress. “I want to watch my dick slide in and out of you. Feel every tight, warm clench of your delicious pussy. And then when we’re coming together, you’re finally going to admit that…You. Are.Mine.”
Wow! Like, wow, wow, wow! His words, as gritty and raw as they were, made my heart smile. Was I a sick, twisted person to see past the dirty talk and straight to what was real? “Marcus, I love it when you talk like that.”
“Yeah? Good because I’m going to fuck you, hard. Okay, pretty girl?”
Before I even get into what this book is about, let me just say, better to just read without the panties on…why bother???
This book is action freakin packed with insanely hot sex. Faith really out did herself with this one. I can’t even take how hot Marcus is. I love tattoos, so he works for me. And it’s not just his gorgeous body and slammin good looks that do it for me, but how bad he has it for Tessa Bradley. Is it possible for a man-whore like Marcus Grayson to change his ways and settle because of one girl, and have just one woman in his life?
Marcus has always had a crush on his older sister’s best friend Tessa Bradley; since they are kids. Then Tessa met a guy, got married, had a kid and just fell off the grid. Not even keeping in touch with Riley, Marcus’ sister.
Now, years later, Marcus bumps into Tessa. And wow….sparks fly….Tessa is HOT!!!! And divorced! Tessa is just as surprised when she sees Marcus. She can’t believe how Riley’s younger, pimpled face brother is this fucking god like creature, modeling underwear on billboards. Now they work together and she has to see him. Oh boy, sexual tension much!!!!!
Marcus wants her bad. But Riley is determined to have her man-whore brother stay the hell away from her friend Tessa. Riley asks…no Riley tells Marcus, stay the hell away from Tessa, she’s fragile and doesn’t need his shit. Tessa is divorced from her abusive ex-husband Zack and a single mother to an adorable boy Luca. She doesn’t need Marcus messing with her head.
I loved the back and forth between Marcus and his feisty sister Riley. She kills me. Always telling him like it is. Rightfully so, he’s played with Riley’s friends before and it never ended well.
But Marcus has this attraction for Tessa, this pull that he needs to follow. He won’t hurt her. Can’t anybody see? He’s got to prove it.
Tessa. I love Tessa’s character. She’s beautiful, and is such a good mother to Luca man. Sweetest thing ever and yes very vulnerable. She wants Marcus bad. Maybe she can just play around, you know friends with benefits. That sounds like fun right? But she’s not convinced he’s what she needs now.
So Marcus tries to show Tessa; with his mouth, his hands, his body…how good he can be. OMG!!!! I don’t even know where to start to explain the things he did to me while I read these scenes.
UM…the Motorcycle..fuck yeah! I wouldn’t mind Marcus Grayson having his way with me on a motorcycle.. Putting his fingers in places..WHEW!!
I also wouldn’t mind being man-handled at a concert by Marcus either. But that’s just me. The bass beating loud in your ears, Marcus telling you how bad he wants you…
“Make me come to this song.”
“Pretty girl, you like control, huh?”
“I like you, Marcus. I like how good you make me feel. How good this makes me feel.”
She threw her head back and rode me with force, her body thrusting against mine, my cock buried deep in her dampness.
“You are so damn wet and tight. It’s like a fucking dream.”
Her walls clenched around me tighter as if on command and she brought her face to mine so we were nose to nose.
“You do this to me. Only you. I’ve never…I..”
HOLLA!! That’s right Tessa! Go get your “O” girl!!!
There are so many more scenes like this. I could go on and on. But its not just Marcus’s sex appeal that draws her in. He’s changing, for her. And he very responsive to her Luca man, which is fucking sexy as hell.
OMG really?? Swoon!!!
One thing I love about Faith’s writing, is that it flows so nicely. She gets to her point, no beating around the bush. She developed these characters well. The dual POV totally works well here in this book. When Faith writes from Tessa’s POV, you know and feel Tessa; you feel her vulnerability and her need and want for Marcus. You feel her love for her Luca man and the regrets that she stayed in a loveless, abusive marriage for years.
Then she will switch to Marcus’ POV and you know he’s all man; all cocky and his dirty mouth. I love his mouth. But more than that, it’s the way he feels for Tessa, how his feelings have evolved from lust to love.
This story grabs you from chapter 1 and keeps you until the end. I love when a book has great dialog, and Keep Me is MINT in that aspect!! I love love the conversations between Marcus and Tessa, Marcus/Riley, Tessa/Riley. Its fucking hysterical, they are all fucking hysterical.
One of my favorites stories, favorite authors. I think anything that Faith writes I am going to FLOVE!!
So if you trust Trishy Poo, and I all know that you do, read Keep Me!! HOLLA!!!
