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?I always love finding a book that makes me a little giddy. Giddy because I've totally just found a new author and I freaking loved them. Carmack definitely landed on my list with Keeping Her as Garrick and Bliss set out on a trip to London to do one of the scarier things out there... meeting the future in-laws. lol
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.

So. Garrick. He's one of those heroes that's just. He totally did it for me. He's not over the top flashy or too alpha or richer than sin but he's the type of hero I'd want. He's solid and caring and he says things that are so incredibly perfect that I could seriously freaking cry. I completely melted for this guy. And Bliss (gah what a name lol) she was a lovely match for him. I loved the two together and seeing them work through her fears, insecurities and how life can change. I can totally see them in it for the long haul and I love having that feeling when I finish a read.
"In that case, you should know that every time I do this"--his hips shifted--"I am incredibly happy."Even though Keeping Her was a follow up novella to their falling in love it read easily as a stand alone. I'll definitely be going back to see how these two met though because I just loved them and was really impressed by Carmack's writing. It's easy and flows nicely, has humor and a bit of steam and she totally made me believe that Garrick and Bliss love each other completely.
Somehow through all the sensation I managed to roll my eyes.
"We're talking about two different kinds of happiness."
He should his head, and lowered his lips to my ear. "There's only one kind. Whether i'm inside you or lying beside you or touching your hair or listening to you laugh, it all means the same thing. If I'm with you, I'm happy."
Have you read Carmack? What did you think?
