Also in this series: Pushing You Away

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 AWAY 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.

Liz's Review

Holding you Close by Kennedy Fox is the second book in the Noah and Katie duet and the fourth book in the Ex-Con duet series. Be ready for all the feels in the conclusion of Noah and Katie’s story. This was a slow burning story as they find themselves finally going from friends to lovers, but what will that mean to those around them?

We pick up right where we left off in the cliffhanger of an ending and quickly draws you in. The love and connection they share is undeniable but being together means facing so many obstacles. It was an angst filled story, but we would not expect any less from this writing duo. I loved Holding You Close by Kennedy Fox and it was a part of an amazing duet. I highly recommend reading this!
