Keep Me by HJ Welch (Bears-4-U series)

Beckett is finally ready to take baby steps into the dating world after losing his husband and boy to cancer, but is he ready for the sweet, loving boy who needs his help in Keep Me?

From the blurb:

Snowed in for a second chance at love...

It’s been over two years since I lost my darling husband, and my best friend is taking matters into her own hands. She’s signed me up to a dating app for bears and those that love them, even encouraging me to attend a weekend mixer. I go to humor her, not expecting to rescue the most adorable boy…twice. But I’m not ready to open up my heart again, am I?

My last Daddy was bad news. It’s taken a lot of courage for me to reach out on Bears-4-U and go to this mixer, only to find that the new Daddy I’ve been talking to is just as awful. That’s when Beckett swoops into my life like a hero in a story book. I know he’s not looking for love, but I want to mend his broken heart so badly. When a scary snowstorm blows in and strands us, I trust he’ll keep me safe and warm. I want to be in his life, in his bed, in his heart…forever.

Bears-4-U is a MM Daddy romance multi-author series, featuring a host of delicious Daddy pairings. The Bears-4-U dating app is all about putting Bears and Teddy Bears together for their honey-sweet HEAs. Psst, no real bears involved. Each book can be read as a standalone, but why not snuggle up with all the bears?

Heather's Review:

Keep Me is a Daddy/boy story with instant attraction and a dash of angst, as both Beckett and Laurie struggle with opening up their hearts to new love and trusting that the sweet man they've connected with is the one for them...

While both men use the app, that's not how they meet or get together -and the forced proximity twist is delicious!  There's no regression, but there's lots of snuggles, sweetness and a second chance at love.

If you need a story that restores your faith in second chances, grab Keep Me!

Autumn's Review

I loved this book. So far, it is my favorite in the series. It has just enough darkness to keep reading. Bears like this are one of my soft spots.

While this book is instalove, like all of them in this series, it was done where it felt like it was natural. Snow storms, past failed relationships (and one that ended on a slightly good but sad note), this book was very well written.

Readers do need to understand that the author is not from the US, so some of the working choices are odd, but I was able to overlook them.
