ARC Review: He’s A Keeper by Stacy Travis

Drunk-texting a grumpy soccer star?
Best worst decision of my life.

Especially when the player is the sinfully handsome, foul-mouthed Holden Sanders… my new library assistant.

The benched bad boy needed an image makeover, I needed to save my job, and his star status was just what the library ordered to raise awareness for our fundraising campaign. The press can’t get enough of Mr. Growly reading to kids.
It’s win-win and completely platonic.

Until I need a shoulder to cry on after drowning my heartbreak in too many margaritas. I only typed that invitation to his brawny biceps and perfect pectorals for fun–I never meant to hit send. Holden isn’t the kind of guy to care about tears and feelings, least of all mine. He’s made it clear good girls aren’t his type.

But he shows up–with his strapping shoulder, a box of tissues, and a supersized bag of Doritos.

That’s when I realize there’s more to him than meets the eye.

One soulful, smoldering mistake of a kiss has me craving more, and the heat between us quickly builds to a blaze neither of us can control.

But I’m not the only one guarding secrets, and Holden’s might push us to the breaking point.

Even if I’m surrounded by books, I know better than to believe in storybook endings.

And yet, I want to believe… Because I know he’s a keeper.

This is a fun read in a new Berkeley Hills spinoff series. In No Match For Her, we knew Charlie owned a professional soccer team and this is the first book in the new San Francisco Strikers series. We can all relate to Molly wallowing in self-pity and doing something she regrets. Holden is charmed by her drunk texts and her even more drunk self when he comes to her rescue. I wanted a bit more from Molly because she doesn’t go after what she wants in life and that doesn’t change, so her character was a bit of a disappointment but Holden is great. It was fun watching them fall for each other even as they tried to fight it. This is a sweet HEA and a great start to a new series. I received an ARC from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.
