From Rhyannon Byrd, author of Take Me Under, comes yet another sizzling, sensual tale of intrigue, passion, and the most dangerous risk of all…

Five years after the end of his marriage and his career as a detective, Alex Hudson wears a permanent suit of armor to keep the world at bay. Now a PI in South Florida, he believes that he’s better off free of romantic complications—even if a certain beautiful redhead makes him sweat with little more than a look. But he’s determined to steer clear of women and the trouble they bring. Until trouble comes uninvited...

Renowned therapist Brit Cramer has seen her fair share of violence and knows how to handle it. But when a former patient targets Brit as his feminine “ideal,” she finds help in the last place she ever expected—the tall, dark, outrageously sexy Alex Hudson, who saves her from a violent attack. Brit’s been powerfully attracted to Alex from the moment they first met several years ago, but she knew better than to do more than enjoy the view…

The initial uncertainty they both feel shatters in the face of a searing, absolute desire, but their time is running out as they find themselves caught in the sights of a madman who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Before they know it, they’re fighting not only for their lives, but for the possibility that they may have both found exactly what they’ve always wanted and each other.


 Keep Me Closer by Rhyannon Byrd is a suspense filled romance with a heat factor that is out of this world. This author knows how to write a sex scene like no other. It is so detailed, so sexy, so unique, you can’t help but to keep turning the pages like a mad woman, demanding for the scene to go on and on. Ms. Byrd’s Dangerous Tides novels are a definite MUST READ if you are looking for a STEAM FACTOR of 10+++! 

❝I want this pussy, Brit. I want to lick it, suck on it, cum on it, spank it, kiss it, tongue it, penetrate it, violate it, worship it, and fuck it.❞

See what I mean?! Oh that’s not all, I have another one for ya…

❝you won’t be able to take a breath without remembering what it’s like to have me buried deep inside you, fucking you raw.❞

Mmm…you know you want more…

❝Because if you get on that bed, I really am going to put every hard, thick inch of my cock up your ass. And then I’m going to fuck it like I own it.❞

Ok…NO MORE FOR YOU! That is just the tip of the iceberg people. I’ve only read one other book from this author, and I just can’t help but keep coming back for more. Keep Me Closer is a story of a man who was majorly screwed over by a past love, and has sworn off relationships. Alex Hudson is a man’s man! He is a tough son of a bitch, and he shows it off to anyone and everyone. His heart is surrounded by walls so high and so thick, that no one stands a chance at even cracking them. When his brother asks him to protect the one woman Alex has been trying to steer clear from, his dick tries to maintain its distance while his head stays in the game. But the chemistry between him and Brit is too palpable, too visceral, that keeping his dick at bay, ends up being a bigger challenge than expected. 

The more time these two spend together, the closer they become. Both of their walls start to break down. These characters are strong, they are complex, and they are stubborn as hell. They compliment each other so well though, not only in bed, but on an intellectual and emotional level as well. The storyline was great, the suspense was definitely there. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Rhyannon Byrd knows just what an erotic romance reader wants, and she delivers 100% of the time. This was a great, sexy, quick read for me. Keep Me Closer is a standalone, but you should definitely check out Take Me Under, Book 1 in the series, as well as Make Me Yours, Book 1.5 and a great novella in Dangerous Tides Series.
