Roxie has wanted one guy but doesn't believe she'll ever be able to have him. She's about to get the surprise of her life when her father informs her about his plans for her.
Everything had led to this and Black is going to make sure Roxie knows she belongs to him now. Roxie is at first a little scared about how Black is looking at her, but she quickly submits to what her heart desires.
Keeping her Close is a heart-stopping, pantie melting, proactive read that will make you weak in the knees. I love how Dani weaves a story that captivates the reader from start to finish, leaving the reader satisfied yet begging for more.
Black is dark, intimidating, and sexy. Roxie is sweet, kind, and loyal. And together, these two are electric and perfectly matched. Roxie softens Black's hard edges and Black brings out the naughty in Roxie.
If you are looking for a quick, sultry, thrilling read, then I highly recommend you pick up Keeping Her Close and let Black take care of you and all your naughty desires.
Six years of loving, lusting, craving, denial, and indifference. Wait? Two of these things are not like the others. Let me do a flashback scene...*cue the music*
Six years prior, circumstances landed Black in hell, Hell, Michigan, that is, when his car broke down. Black, in all his confidence and possible desperation, made him self an employee of Malcolm's, albeit an unpaid one. But, over a month's time, he more than proved his worth, and loyalty, and is now Malcolm's right-hand man. His biggest reason for staying can be summed up with one name...Roxie. Yes, the boss's daughter, his seventeen-year-old daughter, hence the denial and indifference I mentioned above. Black has oh so slowly bided his time, knowing he couldn't hold out for much longer. When he's given Malcolm's approval, the situation isn't in any way what he imagined.
When Malcolm, having trusted the wrong person, is facing eighteen months for someone else's illegal activities, he entrusts Black with his bar, legally signing it over to him for the duration of his incarceration, and, most important of all, his daughter. Malcolm knows how Black and Roxie feel about one another, he's seen it, even if Black tries to hide it, therefore, he gives his blessing.
Roxie has had a crush on Black since day one, and over the years it's matured and strengthened. Unfortunately, it isn't returned, thus she's resigned herself to move forward and let Black go, emotionally. To do so, she needs to get away and receives the okay from her dad to stay at the cabin while he's gone. She didn't find out until too late that her dad had one condition...Black would be going with her, even if only for two weeks, or so she believes.
Black's patience has finally given out and shortly upon arriving at the cabin, he begins informing Roxie of how things are going to be from now on. Pushy? Maybe, but he senses, he just knows, Roxie wants everything he has to offer her, and, he's right. Both Black and Roxie thoroughly enjoy their time at the cabin, quickly making their union official, before embarking on their HEA.
One-click now and follow along as two people, both containing their feelings for each other for years, finally come together as permission is given, allowing them to break free of the restraints previously binding their love for one another. For those concerned with safety, such as myself, Black did not touch nor even think about another woman in those six years. He was completely devoted to Roxie, and, prior to that was never a manwhore. Bless you, Dani! I did struggle with one thing, see below, but I still enjoyed the book and am glad I read it.
On a purely personal note, I like the premise, the sex is intense, Black is dominant and Roxie is sassy, and I like that both had been celibate as they waited for this moment, one six years in the making. With that being said, however, though this book was everything it was intended to be, I wish we were shown the love Black is supposed to have for Roxie, instead of just the lust, the desire he has to possess her, completely, and how he, essentially, seems to view her as property, a vessel for whatever he wants to do her, not as the love of his life. That bothered me. I like the dominance, but I also like being able to see the love between the two main characters, and I wasn't given the latter here. It's almost as if his only connection, only reason for being with her, is of a sexual nature, as opposed to any sort of emotional one. Sit with her, talk, watch a show together, take a walk and hold hands, anything other than constantly sticking something of yours in her. Treat her as a person, your one, at some point. Then again, Roxie seems to revel in his actions, his *her word* brutality, and yes, to each his own, but it doesn't show me any love other than his to use her body for anything he wishes. Though he does, toward the end, tell Roxie he loves her, and in the epilogue we're given more of it and see the depth of his devotion to her, I just would've preferred to see more of that throughout it.
