REVIEW ➞ Needing You Close by Kennedy Fox


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.

It’ll completely destroy me — and him — but I have to be strong because our lives are on the line.


The conclusion to Tyler and Gemma’s story was everything I could have hoped for and so much more. They didn’t have an easy path but they both deserved a happy ending. Needing You Close picks up where things left off in book one, Keeping You Away. Just like the first book this one is full of angsty, emotion, and drama. The slow burn is well worth the wait.

Tyler and Gemma have insane amounts of chemistry and you can feel that ooze off the pages when they are together. I can’t get enough of them. Tyler is protective, caring, 100% alpha male. Gemma is caring, she is fighter, protective of those she cares about. These two balance each other out perfectly. They heal each other. They work so perfectly together. Their relationship is full of ups and downs, however, they know that they can both rely on each other for support.

SO many unexpected things happened in this book. Things I NEVER would have guessed and at one point I’m pretty sure my jaw was on the floor. I loved getting some more of Liam and Maddie throughout the story, too. I love the relationship between Tyler and his sister. Plus, the friendship between Everleigh, Katie and Gemma.

Needing You Close is an angsty slow burn that is full of twists and turns. Tyler and Gemma’s story is a MUST READ!
