Book Review for KEEP HER SAFE by K.A. Tucker
KEEP HER SAFE by K.A. Tucker
☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
My Highly Caffeinated Thought: Equal parts thriller and romance with a healthy dose of secrets and deception.
Recently, I have discovered that my favorite type of romance novels are the ones that have incorporated suspense into their stories. There is something about the thrills and chills coupled with the emotional components of a romance that are pulling me in. KEEP HER SAFE is one of those books.
In what can only be described as typical K.A. Tucker, KEEP HER SAFE melds together the instant attraction of two main characters with the secrets that could very well tear them apart. Noah and Gracie have a wonderful banter and push-pull going on throughout the book. It is this that add some of the more lighter and steamy moments within the book. However, the part that grabbed me the most was the underlining corruption case and the framing of Gracie's father.
Tucker unraveled the story by giving us bits and pieces from the beginning all the way to the end. Even though we knew who might be the players, there was always one element to leave us hanging. This tension and constant wondering what will happen next is where the strength of the book really lie.
I am never disappointed with one of K.A. Tucker's books and this one is no different.

About the Book:
Noah Marshall has known a privileged and comfortable life thanks to his mother, the highly decorated chief of the Austin Police Department. But all that changes the night she reveals a skeleton that's been rattling in her closet for years, and succumbs to the guilt of destroying an innocent family's life. Reeling with grief, Noah is forced to carry the burden of this shocking secret.
Gracie Richards wasn't born in a trailer park, but after fourteen years of learning how to survive in The Hollow, it's all she knows anymore. At least here people don't care that her dad was a corrupt Austin cop, murdered in a drug deal gone wrong. Here, she and her mother are just another family struggling to survive...until a man who clearly doesn't belong shows up on her doorstep.
Despite their differences, Noah and Gracie are searching for answers to the same questions, and together, they set out to uncover the truth about the Austin Police Department's dark and messy past. But the scandal that emerges is bigger than they bargained for, and goes far higher up than they ever imagined.
