KEEP ME STILL
A New Adult Contemporary Romance
Star Rating: 4 stars
Heat Rating: Sizzling/HOT
This version of Keep Me Still has the novella Let You Leave already in the book (it is a prequel), which is the best way to start the story. Let You Leave introduces us to Layla and Landen, we get to know them as people, then as a pair before Keep Me Still begins. Getting the background on these two characters is super important, it really enhances the story of Keep Me Still. Then once you are done with Keep Me Still, you get to go right into the next novella, Hold Us Close (which is a lovely follow up/epilogue type sequel).
I love Caisey Quinn's writing style. Her stories flow naturally and turns regular words into beautiful heart-tugging stories that take you on an emotional journey that you can get lost in for hours. The pacing was a bit fast in Keep Me Still, but it worked overall for the complete book, which encompasses all three stories: Let You Leave, Keep Me Still and Hold Us Close. (So I definitely recommend you make sure your copy of Keep Me Still includes the novellas, they really enrich Layla and Landen's story)
Caisey Quinn won me over in Girl with Guitar with her storyline and original characters, and Layla and Landen in Keep Me Still stole my heart. I love that you don't get cookie cutter characters, you get characters that are real, a little banged up and unique. Layla and Landen were adorable. I fell in love with them right away and was really put through the wringer with these two! My poor heart broke for them, I rooted for them and I found myself thinking about this book hours after I finished reading it and breaking out into a smile.
Keep Me Still is just another example of why I love Caisey Quinn! If you have read her Kylie Ryans series (Girl with Guitar) then you will love Layla and Landen! And if for some reason you haven't read Caisey Quinn (go and 1-click any and all of her books), you are in for a treat, she is one of my favorite author "finds" this year!
