Review: Needing You Close, Kennedy Fox

Needing You Close
Tyler & Gemma #2
Release Date: August 13

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.

Kennedy Fox never ever disappoint. I had no idea what I was in for in Tyler's story, I just wanted him to get the happy ending he deserved and he got it. And they way he got it, fighting for it made it even more special. 

We knew from Liam & Maddie's duet that he would still face the problem of Victoria and boy I was so scared that he would do something stupid and get in trouble again but the way these two ladies worked that 'revenge' plot was fantastic and that Vitch got some poetic justice. Rotten to the core, she had a taste of her own poison. I loved it!

But Victoria wasn't the only problem Tyler and Gemma had to face. Gemma's fiancĂ© didn't just make their second chance forbidden, he made their lives a bit of a living hell. Robert almost posed a bigger threat than Victoria and to be honest, I think I disliked him more than her. He was an awful human big and he didn't have the excuse of being born into a mob world. Even in regards to the Robert situation, these ladies managed to surprise me plot wise. They have become the masters at making me believe sh*t and giving me a heart attack. Not cool but also awesome lol. If you've read it you know exactly what I'm talking about. That freaking scene took the cake in this book. It was brilliant. 

I just really enjoyed this book and new world. I freaking adore Katie and Everleigh and even Ruby. I am already soooo excited for Noah and I can't wait to get inside his head and see him fight for a relationship with Katie and her son. It's bound to be a good one. But I am even more excited for Everleigh to get her own happily ever after. I am also super excited to meet her hero, we got his name  in the info of the duet on GR but I don't believe we have met him yet.

And I obvioulsy adore seeing Liam and Maddie. That last scene where they finally got to meet Gemma was the best. I would also love to see Maddie meet Everleigh in person. I hope these two visit Lawton Ridge in the future and we get to see them meet everyone else.

Needing You Close was an amazing conclusion to Tyler and Gemma's story. You still get a little slow burn, tons and tons of angst and lots of emotional scenes. We get wondeful friendship moments, more beautiful letters that showcase the amazing love story between these two. We see justice being served in more ways then one and as always we get glimpses into the next duet. These two share a beautiful, emotional story and a love that was destined from the beginning. I can't wait to get more glimpses of them in the other two duets.
