Keeping You Away: Tyler & Gemma #1
The last time I saw my first love was twelve years ago. We fell hard and fast, but it didn’t stop me from leaving.
I never expected to see her again, but when I move back to my small hometown, there’s no avoiding it—especially since her dad’s my new boss.
The more time we spend together, the more I want a second chance to be the man she deserves. As old sparks resurface, we grow closer. Though she denies she feels the same, I notice the way her body reacts when I’m near.
Gemma isn’t mine—yet—but I’m willing to risk everything for her.
KEEPING YOU AWAY is book 1 in the Tyler & Gemma duet and must be read first.

I enjoyed this story, but Holy Cow.....I find myself hanging by a thread!! I could not out this book down and now I really really need book 2.
Tyler and Gamma have a short but beautiful history. Tyler left and wound were made. They never got the closure each needed. Gamma is moving on and she is even engaged.
I love Tyler ever since he was brought into Liam and Maddie's story. I am team Tyler all the way!!
I really enjoyed reading Keeping You Away by Kennedy Fox. It's the story of young woman named Gemma, who is engaged to a man who is about 15 years older than she is whose name is Robert; Gemma is 30 years old. When Gemma was in high school she had a huge crush on her best friend, Everleigh's brother, whose name is Tyler. Tyler joined the military after he graduated from high school, and he and Gemma wrote to each other the entire four years that Tyler served in the military. Gemma admitted to Tyler that she had feelings for him a couple of years after they started writing to each other, and shortly after Tyler confessed to Gemma that he had feelings for her, too. Shortly before Tyler was discharged from his military service, Gemma wrote to Tyler telling him that she was a virgin and that she wanted him to be her first lover, and the night of Gemma's high school graduation, Gemma's wish comes true. Gemma and Tyler spend almost every minute together that summer, but after three months Tyler wants to leave their hometown of Lawton Ridge, Alabama, and he begs Gemma to come with him. When Gemma tells Tyler that she doesn't want to leave her friends and family, Tyler leaves town without her.
The book continues seven years later when Tyler returns to Lawton Ridge after spending five years in prison, for a crime he didn't commit. He is hired by Gemma's father, to work as a mechanic in his garage, and since Gemma works as the office manager there they see each other every day. This novel tells the story of Gemma and Tyler trying to become friends after Tyler broke Gemma's heart all those years ago.
I loved this book about Gemma and Tyler, and I'm really looking forward to the next book in this series. If you love romance novels, you will definitely enjoy this book. Kennedy Fox are wonderful writers of romance. This book has a great story and many interesting characters, and you will definitely be entertained!
