Official Blurb:

Julia Fisher was everything to me. I loved her and would have done anything for her. But the night she walked out of my life, after deciding I wasn't good enough for her, I got out of town as fast as I could.
After six years, I'm coming home.
Now I am going to make it my mission to rub everything she gave up in her face. No matter how much I still love her, I need to bury it deep inside me because she chose him.

Brian Evans broke my heart—shattered every piece of my soul when he left. He decided that I wasn't worth the wait.
Now he's back in town.
He is a constant reminder of the pain that I endured at his hands. I won’t let him break me again. 
A lot can happen in six years. People move on, fall in love again, and forget about the pain from the past. Seeing his face, hearing his voice, brings me back to a time when things were simple and love was enough for us.
I can't let him know that a part of me still loves him. 

Now that they are brought face to face again, will they destroy each once more or will they discover that things aren't always what they seem? Are some bonds unbreakable? Are some people worth losing everything you have?

First off, it’s those dreaded words… this was the first book by Alexis Noelle for me. Now that’s out of the way, Keeping Her is a really good book.  Its story centers around a couple that are broken apart by the world around them and some other contributing factors. As you read the story, it will bring you back to those intense moments of first love while shattering your heart into teeny tiny pieces.  There are so many times in this story you will want to scream in agony after seeing how badly miscommunications caused their heart break and pain. Julia and Brian’s romance is far from conventional and holy hell did I love that. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. Love isn’t easy!  It’s messy and crazy. Well, maybe not as crazy as Julia and Brian’s story, but still crazy!
