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.

My Review:

We definitely had quite the shocker of a surprise at the end of book one, Keeping You Away. While it wasn’t quite as anxiety inducing as some of the other duets I’ve read by this author, it definitely had me eagerly awaiting book two. And as I read this one, I kept waiting to see what those people you knew just weren’t done being the bad guys were going to do.

Without giving anything away I have to say that there were some twists and turns in this one that I totally did not see coming! The story kept you guessing and when you find out what has really happened, it’s like bam! You’re smiling, you’re so glad how everything was able to work out in the end. And it wasn’t just the love story that got wrapped up. There were pieces from Liam and Maddie’s story as well we got to see all wrapped up as neat as can be. But man, Gemma’s ex-fiancee was really a piece of work. I know that next we’ll probably be getting Gemma’s brother Noah’s story, and I’m definitely eager for that. Getting chances to kind of meet him in this book, as well as the introduction to his story at the end was perfect.

Now, I will admit the end of this dragged out a tiny bit for me, and so I did mark it down to a 4.5 on my blog for that, but will round it up everywhere I am unable to give half star ratings, because the issue I had may not be something everyone else notices.
