About this ebook

Once my childhood best friend returns to our small town, I want answersÑstarting with why he ignored me for a decade and never responded to my letters.Ê

He was the first boy I ever loved and broke my heart when he wrote me off. Though heÕs determined to make up for lost time, I refuse to make it easy for him. But my heart hasnÕt forgotten how he always made me feel.

Flirting leads to falling between the sheets, and IÕm forced to deal with the guilt of what weÕre doing. As danger threatens to tear us apart, I realize thereÕs more on the line than just my heartÑbut losing Noah again isnÕt an option.

HOLDING YOU CLOSE is book 2 in the Noah & Katie duet and must be read in order.

5 Star Holding You Close (Ex-Con Duet # 4) by Kennedy Fox AUDIO REVIEW: Holding You Close picks right up where Pushing You away finished so if you haven’t read that book then you need to STOP and read that one first as they must be read in order. I love friends to lover’s story and this book was just as riveting as their first book. Holding You Close was an entertaining read and is the conclusion to Katie and Noah’s story. It was also one I read through in almost one go as I simply could not put it down. This is an emotional roller coaster of a read, it is a story that built slowly, with some angst, drama, mystery and suspense; it was well written. Their journey was not without bumps but it was worth it. I freely admit to tears on occasion and I cannot wait for the next book. The performance by Lia Langola and Tor Thom were spot on for Katie and Noah and they did a good job in expressing the emotions that these characters went through.

I was excited for book two in the Noah and Katie duet and I wasn’t disappointed, Holding You Close was everything I expected and so much more. I want to first say please don’t pick this book up without reading the first book in this duet because this picks up right where Pushing You Away finishes, it’s the conclusion to Noah and Katie’s story. This is not just a story this is a journey that will take over your life, it’s a captivating romance that will draw you in and stay with you long after the final words have been read. Noah is in hospital after an attempted assassination and it’s now time to find out who’s behind the attempt on his life. As Noah starts the road to recovery we see him and Katie growing closer and determined to find out who is out to destroy their relationship. I loved joining this couple on their journey, I loved watching them grow closer as they accepted the love they felt for each other. I loved the relationship they shared but what took this romance to another level was the love Noah felt for Owen, it was wonderful to watch him become the father, Owen desperately wanted. This is a duet with all the feels and I highly recommend you one click this gem of a read, it’s a romance with the perfect mix of love, passion and mystery.

Prepare to rage, laugh and cry at this book! You will fall head over heels in love with Noah and Katie's relationship - I'm a tad jealous of them. Holding You Close has the prefect balance of suspense and spiciness! If you love books about romance and family that is action packed, this is the book for you. My heart has not stopped racing from the twists within this book.... it will keep you on your toes! You are immediately sucked in from the start and I could not put the book down. Noah and Katie's Duet is tragic from the beginning and within this book Noah tries to step up and keep himself and his family safe, whilst still trying to live a normal life with Katie and Owen. I loved seeing a glimpse into Owen's point of view within this story - you made my heart gooey! This is my favourite series from Kennedy Fox and I can't wait to see what is in store for Everleigh and Archer in the next duet.
