Needing You Close by Kennedy Fox


Release Date: August 13, 2020

SYNOPSIS: I never expected to see my first love again after he left me twelve years ago. Though I’ve moved on, working with Tyler is no easy task—especially when he focuses his bedroom eyes on me. Flirting with the past is like playing with fire, and considering I’m engaged, I’m bound to get burned. When the man I promised to marry reveals he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, I run to the safety of Tyler’s strong arms. As we grow closer, so do our feelings. Threats and ultimatums are made, and the revelation of the truth is enough to bring me to my knees. I’ll do whatever it takes to protect my family, even if it means shredding my heart. Too dangerous, too unpredictable, too risky to handle alone—we need each other now more than ever. After our world nearly collapses, there’s nothing left to do but take it back. Tyler and I team up to destroy the people who are determined to ruin our second chance at a happily ever after. Though our love is undeniable, I just hope it’s enough. We’ll fight until the end to be together—regardless of who tries to get in our way.

NEEDING YOU CLOSE is a slow-burn, angsty romance wrapped up in an intense love story. It’s book 2 in the Tyler & Gemma duet and must be read in order.


REVIEW: This is why I make an exception to my “no duets” rule for Kennedy Fox! I love shorter books where I get to the HEA sooner, but this one was great. It is so fun seeing Maddie and Liam from the Roommates series in this one too! Gemma and Tyler just have this chemistry that I couldn’t get enough of in these books. Also, I’m just such a Tyler fan. He is loyal and caring and total book boyfriend material. We get this glimpse of Gemma and Tyler together in the beginning of the first book, but they were both so young. This book introduces us to adult Tyler and Gemma’s relationship and it is a great one. They just love each other so much! Everything about them just made me so invested in the story.

Between the reappearance of Victoria, and Gemma’s crazy ex-fiancé, I knew the usual Kennedy Fox drama was coming. And come it did. In the last quarter of this book SO much happened! I freakin’ love the wild ride and I cannot wait for the rest of this Ex-Con Series! Thank you to Kennedy Fox and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for the eARC in exchange for an honest review!
