Synopsis: 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.

This book literally left me with my jaw hanging open as I soaked in every word. From the first page to the last page KA Tucker had me hooked. Her outstanding story telling skills shined through in this novel as she created characters that were loveable, a plot that left you guessing at every turn and a setting that she brought to life in my mind.
However, I still find myself struggling with this review… What details to share and what not to… I don’t want to spoil anything!! Basically: this story is about a boy and a girl… and a mystery that ties them both together… the mystery has to do with corruption, which leads to drama and suspense and chemistry…
Just read the book! You won’t be sorry! I am already waiting for KA Tucker’s next book… everything she touches turns to GOLD!
