Keep Her Safe Reviews

    Just my way of balancing out the low stars this book got before I even finished writing it *shrugs* :D

    4.5/5 stars

    K.A. Tucker is one of my favorite authors. So I was very excited to get to read her latest book.

    Keeping Her Safe is a standalone novel. The author describes the book as an intense suspense story with a genuine deep-rooted romance. And unlike any other book that she's written.

    I guess if I had to choose a genre to put this book in I would say romantic suspense. Romance is definitely featured in this book. Although to me the mystery/suspense aspect of the story is more prevalent.

    K.A. Tucker is one of my favorite authors. So I was very excited to get to read her latest book.

    Keeping Her Safe is a standalone novel. The author describes the book as an intense suspense story with a genuine deep-rooted romance. And unlike any other book that she's written.

    I guess if I had to choose a genre to put this book in I would say romantic suspense. Romance is definitely featured in this book. Although to me the mystery/suspense aspect of the story is more prevalent.

    The main narrators are Noah (25) and Grace (20). There are also some POVs from the past: Noah's mom Jackie (Police Chief) and Grace's dad Abe (police officer). It was interesting to get some insight into the past. But I found it unusual that the reader was learning things from these chapters that the narrators did not know.

    A lot of the story takes place in Austin Texas. Noah lives in Austin. The Austin Police Department plays a very big part in this story.

    Grace lives in Arizona in a trailer park with her mom who is constantly on drugs. Her dad died 14 years ago.

    To be honest it took me a few chapters to really get into this book. When I started I could not figure out what the story was about. But by 15% the book started getting a lot better for me.

    The book is about uncovering the truth. Noah and Grace team up to try to discover the truth about what happened 14 years ago. Her father Abe was killed. But there is much more to the story. There are so many secrets and lies. It is difficult for Noah and Grace to know who to believe and trust.

    I really liked both Noah and Grace. Noah was polite and kind. Abe was his mentor. Grace had such a tough life. She was sassy and full of spunk. I really enjoyed reading about them trying to solve this mystery. And the dog, Cyclops was the funniest thing ever!

    There were lots of interesting characters including: Grace's mom Dina, Noah's Uncle Silas (the District Attorney), former Police Chief Canning, and FBI agent Klein.

    The mystery was really good. By halfway it was getting so interesting that I did not want to put the book down. I was hoping that the story would be full of twists and turns. And I was not disappointed.

    There were definitely a bunch of shocking discoveries in this book. And I really liked the story. I just wanted more from the romance. I loved the couple. I just wish that the romance aspect had been addressed earlier in the book (there is hardly any romance in the first half of the story).

    I am a big fan of the suspense/thriller genre. So I was thrilled to see so much suspense in this book. And even though I wanted more romance in the story, I was very invested in the romantic aspects of this book. Noah is going to be on a lot of Book Boyfriend lists.

    Overall the last half of the book was the strongest to me. And the end was really good. It took me a little bit to become invested in the story. But once I was I could not put this book down. Does this feel like a K.A. Tucker book? Not exactly. There is a bit less focus on romance. And more focus on the mystery to be solved. That said the romance was strong. But I wish that there had been more of it. But wow the ending was intense. What a captivating story!

     was one of my most anticipated reads of 2018; lucky for me it publishes in January which means I didn't have to wait long. The author has dabbled in romantic suspense before, but while

     leaned more on the sexy, psychological thriller side, this one was all about the police procedural with a tender, budding romance. If romantic suspense isn't your thing because you can't stomach the cheesy, vomit inducing, erotic nature of a large portion of the genre out there, relax; this one totally isn't like that and feels much more like mainstream crime fiction. The cover is gorgeous and doesn't have a half naked man on the front, and the title really ties in nicely with the emotional side of the story.

    Jackie Marshall is the highly decorated police chief of the APD and her son Noah has seen a cushy, somewhat sheltered life because of it. Gracie Richards grew up with a starkly different experience, which makes for a complex comparison of the lives of the privileged and those who are not. Tucker does a nice job of tying in racial injustice while keeping the story from breaching the territory of "white man saves the day"; in fact, she does a fine job of toeing a delicate line between channeling racial diversity in Gracie and just showcasing cliches that have been done time and again. There were so many discreet details, ones that may seem insignificant to most, that meant the world to my reading experience. An example of this is in discussing how Gracie doesn't want to get her hair soaked and have to blow it out again because otherwise it turns into a giant ball of fluff. Her and Noah joke about it in a respectful way; these are the little details that brought her character to life for me and kept her from becoming whitewashed.

    I'm trying not to say much about the plot, because I would hate to spoil it for you, but I honestly felt for the first time in my reading experience that the romance in a novel out-shined the criminal case! I was just so drawn to this intimate portrayal of two new adults who had experienced a mountain of tragedy in their short lives slowly being drawn to each other, but in more than just a sexual nature. There is something so deep and intricate about the type of love that develops between two hollow people; I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the transformation of broken and hopeless to scarred yet complete. There are so many other evolving relationships in this story, between different types of family and friends and law enforcement that I found breathed life into the narrative. My only minor complaint was that I wish we had been limited to reading from Noah and Gracie's POV; there are a few others thrown in and I might have preferred getting to know those characters from the stories and memories of others, but otherwise this was a truly fabulous read.

    Some seasoned readers may find aspects of the plot easy to solve, but I still discovered a few surprises along the way and I felt the ending Tucker chose more than compensated for any predictable punches. I can't say too much, but I wholly embraced the intellectual and emotional finale rather than a focus on one last "guns a'blazing and knock 'em out" moment. It felt more real, raw, and profound than any unnecessary action scene ever could have brought. The characters remain flawed and the idea is everyone will move forward from these newfound revelations and heal in the best ways that they can find. I would highly recommend this to readers who want the whole package; if you enjoy a whodunnit where you get to solve the mystery alongside our protagonists with a classy romance thrown in, this one's for you. I don't know about you, but I'm really enjoying these seasoned romance authors breaking out of their shell and trying new genres; it's working so please keep it up!

    was a mystery filled with nail-biting suspense. There is romance but this one is very low on steam. The plot is what makes this book insanely entertaining. The entire time reading this I was trying to figure out the truth and it was like being on a crazy roller coaster ride with no end in sight. Everyone appears to be a suspect, the only two people who I knew were innocent were Noah and Gracie, the Hero and Heroine. We get alternating POVs during the present between Noah and Gracie, and then we are given clues through alternating POVs from the past between Noah’s mother and Gracie’s deceased father. Each travel back in time brings us closer to the truth, but I didn’t see that jaw-dropping reveal at the end coming!!

    Noah’s mother, who was the Chief of the Austin police department has just committed suicide. He’s devastated because it happened right after he had a disturbing chat with her while she was clearly intoxicated and in a bad way mentally. While meeting with his mother’s lawyer to go over her will, he gives Noah an envelope which contains a letter from his mother. The letter is brief. It instructs him to go to a hidden safe she had in their pantry and she asks him to take what’s in it to her old partner’s daughter who now lives in Tucson. Abe Wilkes and Noah’s mother used to be the best of friends and Abe was more of a father figure to Noah then his own dad. But something happened in the past that destroyed their friendship and whatever it was it had Noah’s mother turning to alcohol to numb her guilt and regret.

    Noah takes the $98,000 and Abe’s gun holster, which is what was in the safe, and he heads out on a road trip for Tucson to deliver them to Gracie Wilkes. When he makes it to her home, he’s shocked to see she is living in a run-down trailer park. He’s also struck by what a stunning young woman she’s become. Noah shows up when he’s needed the most. Although their first encounter is extremely hostile since Gracie assumes he is one of her mother’s drug dealers, he turns out to be her hero when he saves her mother from their burning trailer. When he tries to give her the money, Gracie wants nothing to do with is as she believes all the reports of her father being a crooked cop who died in a drug bust gone wrong. Gracie is a very bitter young woman since she and her mother have lived a hard life since her father’s death.

    When the FBI shows up questioning Gracie’s mom and then a box filled with old photos and newspaper clippings that her mom had been hiding resurfaces, Gracie starts to have hope that her father was wrongly accused. Noah battles internally over helping Gracie find the clues they need to prove her father’s innocence because he fears that it will result in tainting his mother's reputation when the truth is revealed. But Noah is starting to have feelings for Gracie and he also loved her father a great deal so not helping Gracie isn't an option.

    Here are my overall ratings on the book:

    This romantic thriller will have you on the edge of your seats!

    I read a lot of mysteries and because I have for many years now, I've come to be able to predict a lot of what is going to happen in a story and sometimes that can leave the story lacking. But Tucker manages to keep me on my toes and even guessing until the very end and I couldn't love her more for it.

    I love a story that is not only a tad bit darker than I expected but also has a romance that is every bit as sweet as I expected and this story has it in ten fold.

    There is something about a good cop murder mystery that is so alluring and when I saw the synopsis for this I knew I had to read it and even though it was hard to put this down, I wanted to savor it as well and take it all in and adsorb every last word of it.

    Truly another wonderfully told, wonderfully written story that many are going to be captivated by.

    What. A. Ride.

    is one of the most intriguing and suspenseful books I’ve read this year. I love reading a book that not only keeps me guessing, but manages to surprise me. The suspense part of the book was the predominate part, but I loved the bit of romance Tucker threw in there as well!

    
This is the question Noah Marshall finds himself asking after he finds his mother, the police chief of Austin, dead. Before his mom passed, she said some things to him that made him question everything. Noah could just let it all go and move on with his life, but he can’t. He’s not that type of person. He chooses to go and find Gracie.

    Gracie grew up in a similar way as Noah. Her dad was a cop, and she had a happy childhood. Then her father was killed, his name tarnished, and things changed for her. She moved with her mother to a trailer park in The Hollow. Things aren’t good for her, but she manages to survive. Then Noah shows up. Noah is not someone Gracie wants to see, but he brings things to light that has her asking more and more questions about her father and his death.

    The more time Noah and Gracie spend together, the more her hardened shell starts to crack a bit. She can tell after a while that Noah is the real deal and he really does want to help. Even if that means sacrificing things that are important to him. With time, Gracie learns to trust someone again, for the first time in a long time, someone has her back.

    
I adored Noah and Gracie, both. Their relationship wasn’t the biggest part of the story, but it was still a great part of it! Noah was the best character in my opinion. I loved how honest he was, how he would sacrifice a lot to do the right thing. His heart was always in the right place. Gracie was strong and even though her life had been tragic, she always had a bit of hope that things would get better.

    As I said before, this book really did keep me on my toes. I didn’t want to put it down and wow- was I shocked at some of the revelations at the end! KA Tucker does an incredible job doing romantic suspense. This book is a must read and I highly recommend it to all!

    The writing is taut and edgy. The characters are complex, secretive, scarred, and genuine. And the plot told from multiple perspectives is an intense, suspenseful love story filled with police politics, familial drama, palpable chemistry, coercion, manipulation, violence, and murder.

    Overall, Keep Her Safe is another absorbing, touching page-turner by Tucker that has just the right amount of romance and mystery to keep you invested, engaged, and guessing until the very last page.

    K.A. Tucker's novels have always been a hit or miss with me. It's not that her writing is poor, in fact, she has a superb storytelling ability. It's the plots that get me. Some I am extremely interested in while others I could do without. Keep her Safe falls somewhere in between for me. I liked the book enough to read it from cover to cover, but I didn't feel the undeniable need to read it in one sitting. I was pretty much indifferent.

Some I am extremely interested in while others I could do without. Keep her Safe falls somewhere in between for me. I liked the book enough to read it from cover to cover, but I didn't feel the undeniable need to read it in one sitting. I was pretty much indifferent.

    This is not to say that the book is bad because truly, it's far from it. I just don't think I was into all the corruption going on. I like a bit of mystery but not so much that I want to pull my hair out- which is kind of how I felt.

    Overall, this is a

    book. It's one I think many are really going to enjoy as well so grab a copy if the synopsis sucks you in or if you're a fan of the author.
