"'Kept' is the searing story of a woman who finds sanctuary in surrender... He can't change who he is. A horrific childhood has made Silas the man he is today: dangerous, distrustful and demanding. He's lived in self-imposed solitude, convinced that no woman could ever accept his need for absolute control-- in business and pleasure. That is, until a young violinist walks into one of his buildings and into his life... She can't change what she wants. Hayley has been struggling to fulfill her father's dying wish: for her to attend a prestigious music school in New York City. But even working multiple jobs, she can't afford the tiniest of apartments. Seeing her hopeless and near tears, Silas vows to help and protect her, no matter the cost to himself. But when Hayley meets his every demand with unwavering acceptance and love, he is overwhelmed by her goodness and gentle spirit. He knows that the dark stain on his soul can never be erased--and rather than risk destroying the most beautiful person he's ever experienced, he'll have to do the hardest thing he's ever had to do. Let her go. But he's totally unprepared for the lengths to which Hayley will go to fight for his love and for a future brighter than the sun."-- Provided by publisher.

I cannot believe it has been so long since I've read a Banks book. I should be made to read 2 really awful books as punishment. This one had me laughing and crying. When I wasn't doing one, i was doing the other. A fabulous, fun and sexy read, with a lot of other excitement thrown in. I wish we could give more than 5 stars, but since 5 is the highest, it says MUCH about the book. And honestly, I cannot imagine anyone reading a Banks book and NOT enjoying it. I read this in one day, and had it not been for having to eat, drink etc, I'd have finished in less time. Happy Reading!!!
