My name is shouted on rooftops.
It’s written on bras, on the inside of bathroom stalls, hell my name is everywhere.
To say my name is to experience an orgasm without ever leaving your damn house.
My name is Zane “Saint” Andrews.
I’m sex.
I’m a rock god.
I’m also…a virgin.
What they don’t know won’t kill them right? Give the people what they want. And what they want is the idea of me; the pleasure they gain at listening to my song and knowing without a doubt I’m talking about them and only them.
It worked for a while.
Until a nerdy girl with glasses falls at my feet, literally, and suddenly I don’t want to be Saint anymore, what I want? What I really need?
Is to be kept.
By her.

This is a rockstar romance with lots of kissing, sex, funny one liners, and life from a different angle. I hope you guys enjoy, and remember, it’s all about the mallow.

My Review


Holy hell, I love RVD. She makes me laugh and cry, ache and sigh. Look, I rhymed. Okay, I digress. KEEP by Rachel Van Dyken is the second book in the Seaside Pictures series, but it can absolutely be read as a stand-alone. Personally, because Zane was in Capture (Book 1), I liked re-reading Capture and watch his character in that book. Especially his friendship with Dani.

Zane, Mr. hot-and-sexy-washboard-abs-marshmallow-loving-broken-musician. I may have a soft spot for Zane because he hits all the right buttons. He’s broken, sexy, lovable, and he’s marshmallow obsessed. Okay, maybe not all my buttons, but RVD made sure to give us a gut-wrenching love story that could easily become epic.

Fallon, the nerdy Seaside girl is just what Zane needs even if he doesn’t think he’s looking for something. She can be blunt, she can be compassionate, and she can be honest. All things Zane needs in his life. He is so broken though, can his heart be healed? RVD draws out the emotions so that one minute you’re smiling, the next you have tears running down your face. Maybe that’s just me…but she kills it in KEEP.

The emotions, the love, the hurt, the ache – I felt it ALL and would gladly feel it again. Every girl deserves a Zane. Another must read from Rachel Van Dyken.
