The first time Jax saw Lia, barefoot and bloody, he knew she would be his to keep and protect.

Most of the world doesn’t consider Jax a good man. An ex-con who’s spent ten years behind bars, Jax has trouble adapting to normal society. He chose to drive big trucks for a living to avoid human interaction. When an injured and curvy beauty runs in the middle of the road, begging for his help, Jax knows he doesn’t need Lia’s kind of trouble but he lets her in his truck anyway.

Eager to leave her small town to see the world, Lia’s made the mistake of trusting one dangerous man who turned out to be a monster. Now she has no choice but to trust a muscled, scarred and inked stranger—but Jax isn’t what she expected. Encased beneath a rock-hard body is an unexpectedly protective and fierce heart. If Lia isn’t careful, she might just wind up begging him to keep her.

Opposites attract.

Lia is a shy woman with curves all over while Jax is a hit first, ask questions later kind of guy. Lia trusted a man that gave her the attention and time as well as had the ability to get her out of town. However, when she ends up on the wrong end of the stick, and encounters the bad side of humanity her mom always tells her of to be aware of, she runs.

She meets Jax when she tries, and succeeds, in getting away from her abuser.

Lia and Jax were two very different people but the things that bound them together were their attraction and chemistry. This was a dark romance. The attraction Jax had towards Lia morphed into a sense of ownership that for some may be a little too much. However, their relationship had soft sides that more than made up for that. There were instances where it felt as if she was trying to convince herself that Jax had a good side instead of actually believing that.

The plot was a simple one, however, I do think that a little bit more backstory would have enhanced and made connecting with Jax easier.

Keeping Her Forever is a short erotic romance but one that allows a reader to follow in the footsteps of these incredible characters: a hero and heroine who found love that healed their wounds one bit at a time. I recommend this book.
