Love this story!
5 Crazy Ass Must Read In One Sitting Stars!!!!!
Laughter, tears, off-the-charts chemistry, heart-break, heart-ache, swoons, smiles, and tons of Harris' crazy abound in this latest installment to the Harris Brothers series.
So I had all the intentions of posting a pic of this on my kindle when I was about to start reading early this morning. A strange thing happened. It actually has not happened to me in a while so that's the strange part. I read this in one sitting! Yeah, I know! I have not been this engrossed in a book in a while that I haven't been able to put it done at least for a couple of hours to run errands and such. Yeah I started at around 7 am and the next thing I know it's 12:45pm. Yeah, errands schmerrands! Seriously though, I have not been so engrossed in a book like I was with this one. Totally had to give this it's own rating too!
I love this series. Actually, I've loved everything I've read by Amy Daws and this book was no different. It was great to get Booker's (and Poppy's) story. He has intrigued me a lot in Endurance. I loved Poppy and all her quirkiness. She cracked me up quite a few times.
Amy Daws totally rocked this! One of my favorite things when reading a series is to have characters from previous series have a part in the current series. So you can safely say I loved the little cameo appearances of Theo and Brody. And I love that Amy continues to do this.
I am looking forward for Gareth's story next. I have been wanting his story since Vi's story in That One Moment (London Lovers series). Let the Crazy Ass Stalking commence because I need to find out when this Harris Brother will be hitting the virtual shelves.
Audible Review Update:
Overall 5 Crazy Ass Must Listen Stars!!!!!
Performance 5 Stars
Story 5 Stars
I absolutely loved the audiobook! I could listen to Will and Charlotte all day. Oh, wait. I did listen to them all day.
When I first read this book back in Sept, I absolutely loved it. Booker and Poppy's story drew me in so much so that I read it in one sitting while ignoring errands I need to run. Thankfully, that was not the problem with the audiobook. The problem came while I was running to the grocery story for a couple of things earlier and spent 45 mins in my car listening to Will and Charlotte. Gosh, those two nailed the narration! They totally fit Booker and Poppy perfectly.
I thought the two of them did a great job with the narration of Endurance but I think they topped that with the addition of the Irish and Scottish accents. Amy, you were so right when you said the Scottish accent was a "show stealer". Loved it. I may or may not have bookmarked those scenes so that I can listen to them over and over. HA!
I didn't think this story could get better but the narration totally made it more. Will and Charlotte totally brought all the characters to life and gave the story additional depth.

By far my favorite friends to lovers romance!!
Oh my goodness, this book is so, so, so amazingly good. The story, its characters, this outstanding narration… the accents! Swoon! This book is everything! I don’t even know where to start… maybe best with a…
Confession: It’s the first book written by Amy Daws that I’ve read. Yeah, I know, I won’t be able to talk myself out of this one. Because I have seriously been missing out on something absolutely incredible. I know I’ll be listening to the other books in this series very, very soon. …and to say I’m intrigued by Gareth, the final Harris sibling to get his story, is a terrible understatement!
Writing: An American writing a story set in London? Uhm, tricky, and spiced with so many tripping hazards, it’s not even funny. But Amy expertly avoids all those and creates a believable English environment, her writing flawless and engaging… I loved every single word of it!
Story: It’s a friends to lovers story, one of my favorite trope, but it also has kind of a second chance feeling to it. Poppy and Booker have known each other their whole life – and at least Poppy was in love with Booker ever since. Then he unknowingly broke her heart – and she left, leaving a lost and devastated Booker behind. Now, six years later, Poppy is back in London. Gone is the shy and awkward teenage girl, his best friend, his mate, instead he is confronted with a gorgeous woman. A woman he cannot help but notice. Seeing their endless banter, their deep-rooted friendship developing into something so much more was stunning as much as it was intense. Every up and down I felt deep in my bones, Booker’s palpable fear of losing and ruining their friendship forever so real, resulting in this powerful make-or-break slow burn… The moments where I felt everything Poppy did were countless, right down to having my knees buckle alongside hers at something Booker said – and I’m not even talking about their passionate sex here! It’s as beautiful as it is heart-wrenching.
Booker, oh sweet lord! What a beautiful man, yet so blind to love… He really frustrated the hell out of me at times. But still, I got where he was coming from, wounded by the loss of his mom at a young age – a scar so deep within it never appeared on the surface. It takes a lot of pushing and prodding and some reverse psychology (god, I cheered for Vi so much!) for him to actually see what’s right in front of him, and also to outgrow the shadow his older brothers still cast on him.
Poppy – sweet, fun and loving – maybe even a bit eccentric in her habit of singing the end of her sentences. And, oh, not to forget her hilarious inner thoughts about sharing a bath with someone – I start to giggle every time I think about that. Lol! A wonderful and crazy woman I truly adored.
Narration: Duet narration in perfection! Will M. Watt has to be my favorite male narrator, I could listen to his voice all day. And his portrayal of Booker made me fall for him even harder. Charlotte Cole was new to me, and it took me a couple of chapters to warm up to her, but, my god, her narration was one of the most emotional narrations I’ve ever listened to! And she even included Poppy’s singing :) Both of them general, it wasn’t just narrated, you could also hear them laughing, scoffing, tsking, shouting, crying. Every part of the story felt real, every emotion perfectly conveyed, every character having his / her own distinct voice and accent… Oh, the accents! If the English ones weren’t swoon-worthy enough, there was also a Scottish one – double swoon!
My highlights: Poppy studying in Germany and swearing in German had this German girl grinning all over. The fact that it’s about soccer, one of the very few sports I actually know something about. Booker playing my favorite position – keepers are sooo underrated! The accents! Poppy’s bath-sharing thoughts (again)!
I officially declare KEEPER by Amy Daws my favorite friends to lovers romance of all time!

I LOVE THIS SERIES
I bloody love this series
I don't know if its because I sort of, have a crush on the narrator at this point but I am loving this series of cheeky cocky footballers.
4 brothers all brought up with the love of British football and this is Booker's story.
A little bit about the plot;
Booker and Poppy have been best friends forever but Poppy suddenly took off to Germany to start college there. Poppy left Booker confused and hurt not only because of the sudden departure but because they always talked everything through with one another.
A surprise phone call reveals Poppy has finished college and is returning.
Poppy has always loved Booker but now 18 and with the end of school looming, Poppy finally plucked up the courage to tell him how she really felt but saw him with another girl.
Booker has never been aware of Poppy's feelings and now she is back with her secrets and still trying to get over Booker its going to be tough especially when she will be temporarily sharing a flat. Booker is in for the shock of his life at the new stunning Poppy.
Its a beautiful story of friends to lovers. Poppy I found childlike at first but she's quirky and I soon realised this is Poppy, and I got used to her character.
A slow burn romance with a few concessions along the way.
I am looking forward to Gareth next the man united footy star.
No heavy drama or angst. Available in Ku, told in first person dual pov and available in Audio
Sharing a bedroom wall with your best friend from childhood quickly turns to anything but sweet and innocent.

I have so much love for the Harris brothers, and Booker and Poppy’s story is hands down my favourite to date!!! I adored this story as it was the perfect combination of angst, humour and hotness!! I LOVED the duet narration by Will M Watt and Charlotte Cole - their narration were PERFECT with a capital P! So much emotion in their narration! I can’t wait for the next book!

Be Keeper-ed by Booker
Keeper by Amy Daws is already my top read of 2017 and this audio version is now my absolute favourite telling of the story.
Will Watt's and Charlotte Cole's performances as Booker & Poppy (and all the supporting characters) are phenomenal and they manage to capture the essence of these two characters completely.
This best friends to lovers romance is even more emotional, more hilarious and more of just everything in audio format. I had tears in my eyes from both laughter and sadness while listening to this gorgeous tale. Plus getting updates from my favourite Harris family members is yet another highlight.
Finally, I must commend Charlotte on her perfect sing-song Poppy moments - they were absolutely spot on - and Will for his splendid and flawless Irish and Scottish accents - they were just brilliant #WillWattForSiri
Five star performance of a five star book!!
