Here is the summary of the book:
Fresh from defending her pack in battle, Natalya Stravinsky, a whip-smart werewolf with a lovable neurotic streak, wants a little rest and relaxation. Once an outcast, she’s now eager to rejoin the ranks of her New Jersey pack, and has even gotten a handle on her obsessive urge to hoard holiday ornaments. Yet Nat barely has time to revel in her progress before the next crisis comes howling at her door. Nat’s father has suddenly gone missing, captured by the Russian werewolf mafia. And as Nat steps up to save her dad from a mob boss’s deadly game, two men step in to play another round for her heart: her gorgeous alpha ex-boyfriend, Thorn, and her new flame, the sweetly sensitive wizard Nick. With her life growing more harried by the minute, Nat must stay cool, calm, and collected . . . or else risk losing everything.
Like Coveted, Kept also features a simple storyline to set this second book off. Nat is trying to overcome her hoarding issues and her OCD and just when things were starting to go back to normal, she finds out a debt needs to be paid by her father or he looses his life and her family never regains their honor. So, Nat rescues him and takes his place to fulfill the debt and by that regain her family's honor and rise in the eyes of her family.
Pretty good read this time around. There is much more depth to the characters. Much more action, while still a simple plot at the crux. But still no visible chemistry (to me) between Nat and Thorn. While getting hot and heavy, both blessed with the werewolfy so of good looks..... I still didn't feel anything between them. While Nat and Nick, the warlock.... that felt beautiful..... they shared good rapport..... a sweet love and much more screen space too. But I'm not going to screw the story but I'd like to say this time around this was a pretty good improvement from the first one.
"Much better than the first book..... very likable"
