After serving a decade long prison sentence for an accident that resulted in my husband’s death, Noah Reid returns. Even if he was my childhood best friend and the first man I secretly loved, I refuse to make it easy for him. But the heart never forgets and those old repressed feelings quickly bubble to the surface.
Loving him is a dangerous game but one I’m willing to play.
Flirting leads to falling between the sheets, and I’m forced to deal with the guilt of what we’re doing. Viciousness towards Noah runs rampant and while revenge trickles through the streets of Lawton Ridge, I realize there’s more on the line than just my heart. While I’m afraid that my son and I will be caught in the crossfire of those who want to hurt Noah, I can’t walk away.
Secrets are revealed and revelations are made, but losing him again isn’t an option—especially since I’m pregnant.
HOLDING YOU CLOSE is a slow burn, angsty friends to lovers romance with lots of small-town, Southern drama. It's book 2 in the Noah & Katie duet and must be read in order.
True Love, always wins!!
This book jumps right into the action from where book one stopped.
With everything going on and no ending in site, Katie and Noah must move on with their lives. When will everything fall into place so these two can live in peace?
The twists of this book had me wanting to keep reading and also at times had my heart stopping. Loved every word written!!
Can't wait for what Kennedy Fox comes up with next.
Suspenseful Yet Sweet
Katie and Noah’s story kicked off where their first book left off. It’s been a bit since I listened/read to the first one but instantly I was pulled back in and it felt as no time has passed. My heart kicking in my chest in suspense.
This was intense both with the mystery of someone out for Noah as well as Katie and Noah’s relationship. It was hot and so sweet at the same time.
I feel I’ve become addicted to these characters.
I’m so excited and happy for these two.
I can’t wait for Katie’s friend/Tyler’s sister Everleigh’s story!
Katie and Noah Forever
I was so excited to receive the ARC for Holding You Close. I was on anxiously waiting for this book because I had to know what would happen after the unbelievable cliffhanger from book 1. This book was super cute, thrilling, and steamy. It was the perfect conclusion for Katie and Noah’s love story. Noah was the perfect book boyfriend! He was sweet, sexy, protective and would do anything to make Katie happy. Definitely a swoon worthy character. The chemistry between Noah and Katie was intense and they were just too cute sometimes. They had many obstacles to over come and the biggest threat was the target on Noah’s life. I’m glad Katie and Noah were strong enough to make it through and get their happily ever after. This also sets up the storyline for Everleigh and Archer, which I can't wait to read their story. I would definitely recommend this duet, if you love small town romance, ex-cons getting second chance at life and love mixed in with some suspenseful plot twists.
