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.
Complex, gritty, sexy, and thrilling, Keep Her Safe solidifies K.A. Tucker’s reputation as one of today’s most talented new voices in romantic suspense.
Wow wow WOW!!! What a ride!! I’m just sitting here thinking about everything that unfolded on the pages of KEEP HER SAFE by KA Tucker!!! It was totally what I was hoping for and so much more!! I’m gonna keep this review vague and mysterious because seriously JUST READ THE BOOK. I love KA Tucker and her story telling. There is just something about her that draws me in when I pick up one of her books. Last year’s UNTIL IT FADES made it on top of my 2017 reads, so I was so excited about KEEP HER SAFE when I read the synopsis. I love the mystery/thriller aspect with just a sprinkle of romance. It was so SUSPENSEFUL & INTRIGUING from the very start, it kept me guessing all the way till the very end. She kept me on the edge of my seat as she revealed bits and pieces. A little bread crumb trail as we follow an intricate scandal unfolding with past and present chapters.
“You want to play in the big boys’ yard, you need to follow the rules.”
Noah Marshall, just lost his mother and at the same time everything he thought he knew about her comes into question too. She was a highly decorated chief of police, but slowly he discovers the truth as he uncovers her secrets.
Grace Richards has not had an easy life, and when Noah stumbles upon her, she is more that wary about his intentions. I loved her firecracker personality.
Together they are on a mission. An INTENSE ADDICTIVE SUSPENSE filled mission to expose the lies and secrets buried over a decade ago.
As they dig deeper and get closer to it their relationship also blossoms. KA Tucker did an outstanding job to bring it all together. The mystery, the pain, the betrayal. But also to give her readers a love story.
“I kiss her like I want her to pine over me. I kiss her like I want her to remember this moment in case we never have another chance.”
There are so many layers to this book, just when I thought yeah ok I GOT IT, something else unfolds or gets revealed. It kept me asking questions till the very end.
I was immersed in a tangled web of deceit and lies with cleverly written characters as they seek justice and discover painful secrets. Questioning who they are as sins of loved ones comes to light. Great romantic suspense that kept me from doing housework and I may have ignored my children a little bit to finish the book 😱 <– it’s always a sign of a good book when they have to fend for themselves!!!!
