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.

This book includes mature subject matter that may not be appropriate for readers under the age of 18.

ReasonsToReadNewly engaged Garrick and Bliss are off to London to visit Garrick’s parents, and there’s no way Bliss is getting out of it.  The best she can hope for is that she doesn’t say or do something as embarrassing and inappropriate as…well, just about every other day of her life.  Of course, it doesn’t help that Garrick’s friends decide to get them drunk as soon as they’re off the plain. Or that Garrick’s parents have decided an engagement party is a great time to show just how much they disapprove of his choices.  Or that his mother might be Satan incarnate.


TheVerdictI was a little leery of picking up this novella.  I absolutely loved Losing It, and I was afraid the charm couldn’t carry over into a second story.  But as it turns out, I had nothing to worry about.

Bliss was just as awesomely crazy as before, and Garrick was just as sweet, accepting, and witty as I remember.  The story, though short, again perfectly captures the fun and love of their relationship, and it throws in some more wonderfully awkward scenes that could only happen to Bliss.  It’s difficult to really write a thorough review, though, because everything I loved about the story is something you need to read for yourself.  Garrick’s mother is something else, but Bliss’s adorable inability to react to anything the way a normal person would keeps things light, and of course Garrick is as in love with her and as supportive as ever.  If you miss this crazy couple like I do, definitely give Keeping Her a read.  It’s short, hilarious, and sweet, and it’ll leave you wanting to reread Losing It all over again.
