I never planned on returning to Alabama, but circumstances brought me here after years of being gone. Though Lawton Ridge is my hometown, I was hesitant to go back because of her - my sister’s best friend. The last time we were together, she was 18, and I was a broken soldier transitioning to civilian life.
Gemma wrote to me while I was overseas and we developed a bond I hadn’t anticipated. I crushed her heart the day I left, something I’ve never forgotten. But now that her dad is my new boss, life just got way more complicated.
Too sweet, too innocent, too good for a guy like me - I should walk away again.
After serving five years in prison for something I didn’t do, I trust no one, but Gemma gradually breaks down my walls and exposes the pain I’ve hidden underneath. For her own sake, I should keep my distance, but it’s nearly impossible when I hear her sweet humming while I work and she slowly draws me back in. It’s a battle I didn’t train for, and one I’ll lose if I don’t keep my restraint - especially since she’s engaged to another man.
Keeping You Away is a slow-burn, angsty second chance romance with lots of small-town, Southern drama. It's book one in the Tyler & Gemma duet and must be listened to first.
Oh the Suspense!
I love Gemma and Tyler! Gemma’s fiancé was such a jerk. Oh I could just strangle that man. He needs a gold digger as a wife not Jemma.
I feel that Gemma and Tyler are so good for each other and time does not lessen their feelings for each other.
But the heartbreak killed me! I felt how Gemma felt and let me tel you, it sucked.
A contemporary romance with a twist of suspense.
This does land on a cliffhanger which I was not expecting but definitely worth the listen/read.
Can’t wait to get started on the next one!
