Do you like Kathryn Shay’s high-powered stories about cops and firefighters? Then you’ll love the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author’s O’Neil books. CLOSE TO YOU centers around the Secret Service, an exciting and important profession she’s tackled before.
"Kathryn Shay writes believable characters you can't help falling in love with. While this is my first Kathryn Shay book, it won't be my last. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in this series.” The Romance Reader Connection
CLOSE TO YOU tells the story of Secret Service Agent CJ Ludzecky, who is assigned to the coveted Vice Presidential Protection Division, guarding the Second Lady of the United States and her two children. After overcoming a rocky start in the Service, CJ is out to prove herself big-time. There's no room for men in her life, especially not the Second Lady's charming, sexy, sensitive brother, Aidan O'Neil.
In this Secret Service romance, back-dropped by the hustle of New York City, the political world of Washington, D.C. and the pastoral scenery of the Finger Lakes, CJ tries to protect her charges, while Aidan tries to persuade her to let him into her life. The invasion of the press, a hostage situation involving the Vice President, a former gang member and a kidnapping attempt all move the story—and CJ and Aidan's relationship—to a stunning conclusion.

“Award-winning author Kathryn Shay delivers a powerful novel about two people whose undeniable passion for each other pushes them to take the chances of a lifetime.” A reader
“Shay's sequel to last year's SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN continues to explore the powerful emotions and at times heart-wrenching issues associated with the O'Neil family. Attraction can develop at the most inconvenient time, and for these characters, it comes down to making serious life choices. Always a dramatic and engaging storyteller, Shay never disappoints.” RT Book Reviews

What happened to the ending?
I liked this book and the different type of twist it brought - but the ending was a let down. Reading over a 1000 pages of story and then 1 chapter ends it… waaaa waaaa waaaa.
