Alyssa Miles has been painted by the public as a spoiled little trust fund baby. But what do they know? She has good qualities, right? At the young age of 24, she has managed to make an spectacle of herself, as well as paint her famous family in a not so great light. But she has changed her wild ways, so why can people not see that? Especially after her father and stepmother are murdered?
Derek Taggert is part of the Gemini team with his brothers, Danny and Ethan. He is ex-military and has worked all kinds of deadly missions. But the mission he has now is supposed to be a cake walk, babysitting a trust fund baby. So when does life go the way you expect it to? There is way more to Alyssa than meets the eye and when her father is killed, the stakes grow higher and Derek's feelings become much deeper.
Alyssa is convinced someone is trying to drug her and make her look bad, only who can it be? She has very few people she can trust, and no one will listen to her. They all believe she is using again and needs another stint in rehab. Derek is so confused by the attraction between them it scares him. He wants and needs her like a drug but he cannot offer her more, can he? He is not even sure he can believe the claim that someone is out to get her.
Whoa! What a steamy sexy read this is! Kept has all the qualities you could ever want in a romance; suspense, murder, illegal crimes, and steamy sex scenes with a gorgeous, mouthwatering specimen of a man. You will see these men in these books the same way as I do, as Ms. Alden has painted her characters so vividly that you cannot help but drool over them. This is my first book by Ms Alden and it will not be my last. I am so stoked to find a series of men that are so yummy. I want to read all their stories.
