I received this galley in exchange for an honest review.

Garrick Taylor and Bliss Edwards managed to find their happily-ever-after despite a rather . . . ahem . . . complicated start. By comparison, meeting the parents should be an absolute breeze, right?

But from the moment the pair lands in London, new snags just keep cropping up: a disapproving mother-in-law-to-be, more than one (mostly) minor mishap, and the realization that perhaps they aren't quite as ready for their future as they thought.

As it turns out, the only thing harder than finding love is keeping it.
It was just last month that I read Cora Carmacks other titles, Losing It and Faking It and I was very excited to get Keeping Her in my hands early. We were only able to see Garrick and Bliss for a few brief moments in Faking It so it was nice to see them again. The two of them are officially engaged and are going to London for a week to meet his parents. We didn't learn much about Garricks past in Losing It so I loved seeing this glimpse into his life. It was interesting to see how much Garrick has changed since moving to America!

Since the moment these two met there has been drama, and their engagement is no different! Meeting Garricks rich, uptight, manipulative parents is way too much for Bliss to handle. I felt so bad for her! But at the same time, I did have one major issue with her. I wish Bliss had more self confidence! Every other sentence had to do with why Garrick chose her, or that he could get any girl he wanted so she has to be on her best behavior so he won't leave her. I wanted to slap her! Just shut-up and realize that you do deserve him and he loves you! Because of this, I could have done with less of her POV. On that note, I loved Garrick's POV. He's so sweet and funny and oh so romantic and he always says just the right thing!

Carmack is a fantastic author, and even with a seventy page novella, I think she told this story perfectly! I can't wait to read Finding It, the next book in the Losing It series.
