-Kacie, ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was my first book by this author. I thought the writing was good, but the story felt a little slow in the beginning.

Sierra has quit her job to move closer to her brother and his growing family. She is just getting out of a bad relationship and is getting over the loss of her grandmother who, apart from her brother, was all the family she had. She is not quick to trust Galen, but when she does, she feels like she should regret it. Galen is a super genius with an amazing family

Sierra hasn't had it easy of late. Her grandmother passed away, then she was screwed over by a man that she thought was into her, so now she's on her way home to help her beast-in-law & brother with a pregnancy to get a new start. But fate has her spending the night with Dr. Galen Christensen, which is the hottest night of her life, but she can't get past the age difference. And of course, by morning, he's gone, so she's back on her way home. Months later, he's back, but Sierra's walls are b ...more

I wasn't sure about this one at first. I was thinking it was slow but I quickly realized that it wasn't really slow just filled with a lot of background that is very important for the story to move along. The characters are wonderfully written. You fall in love with the good ones and feel the hate for the not so nice ones. The emotions pour from the book as it pulls you in deeper. You just want to reach in and give them all hugs.
Sierra and Galen are wonderful and I love the push & pull that

Of course I'm biased since I'm the author. But I will say this was the most challenging book for me to write. This is my second standalone novel. This is the first time I tried an unlikely romance with a sexy British doctor and a slightly older woman. There's so much commonality between them, it was exciting to write - having them discover new things about one another. Of course those who are familiar with my writing know I can't keep away from chaos and I definitely put quite a bit in. Hopefull ...more

Keep Me Close is a story about letting walls down, and seeing beyond the hurt. The author was able to take a storyline that could be played out and make it twist with a way that brought suspense and allures you to keep reading all while keeping the focus on love and happiness. The characters in this book were very emotional and raw. Sierra had hang ups from her past, more so than she ever realized. Throughout the book Galen is patient, loving and kind with Sierra. Always going above and beyond t ...more

I grew up in a small town in South Florida and moved to Central Florida to attend college. There, I married my friend, love, and soul mate and still reside with our amazing son, and a feisty, four-legged little boy.

In my books, I draw on my work background in healthcare and business, along with my husband's engineering knowledge.

I write in all areas of Romance from tame to off the charts steamy
