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.

Needing You Close is the second book in the Tyler & Gemma Duet and continues the story of Tyler and Gemma.

Needing You Close is the second book I’ve read by Kennedy Fox and I liked it! I’m happy that both books in the duet are just a month apart because it was easier to remember the story. I’m someone that reads a lot of books so I occasionally forget a few things about the book I’ve read. I really liked Keeping You Away and I’m glad that I read Needing You Close. Tyler and Gemma finally got the ending they deserve.

I really liked Tyler and Gemma’s story because I haven’t really read an ex-convict romance yet (I think). I really liked the story in general and I loved reading about Tyler and Gemma. Tyler is such a good book boyfriend and I cannot get enough of him. I also like Gemma but Tyler is my favourite.

Needing You Close was a good book but I kind of liked the first book, Keeping You Away, more. Some things in this book seemed a little easy for the characters or seemed a bit rushed. But besides that, I really enjoyed reading Needing You Close. I really liked this duet and I cannot wait to read the other books in the Ex-Con Duet Series!
