Overview

Do you like Kathryn Shay’s high-powered stories about cops and firefighters? Then you’ll love the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author’s O’Neil books. CLOSE TO YOU centers around the Secret Service, an exciting and important profession she’s tackled before.

"Kathryn Shay writes believable characters you can't help falling in love with. While this is my first Kathryn Shay book, it won't be my last. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in this series.” The Romance Reader Connection

CLOSE TO YOU tells the story of Secret Service Agent CJ Ludzecky, who is assigned to the coveted Vice Presidential Protection Division, guarding the Second Lady of the United States and her two children. After overcoming a rocky start in the Service, CJ is out to prove herself big-time. There's no room for men in her life, especially not the Second Lady's charming, sexy, sensitive brother, Aidan O'Neil.

In this Secret Service romance, back-dropped by the hustle of New York City, the political world of Washington, D.C. and the pastoral scenery of the Finger Lakes, CJ tries to protect her charges, while Aidan tries to persuade her to let him into her life. The invasion of the press, a hostage situation involving the Vice President, a former gang member and a kidnapping attempt all move the story—and CJ and Aidan's relationship—to a stunning conclusion.

Praise for CLOSE TO YOU:

“Award-winning author Kathryn Shay delivers a powerful novel about two people whose undeniable passion for each other pushes them to take the chances of a lifetime.” A reader

“Shay's sequel to last year's SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN continues to explore the powerful emotions and at times heart-wrenching issues associated with the O'Neil family. Attraction can develop at the most inconvenient time, and for these characters, it comes down to making serious life choices. Always a dramatic and engaging storyteller, Shay never disappoints.” RT Book Reviews

Also available: the O’Neil brothers’ stories in SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN, TAKING THE HEAT, HIGH STAKES and ALWAYS AND FOREVER, contemporary romances and alpha male heroes and the strong women who love them. Don’t miss these Irish romance kindle books.

Editorial Reviews

Tracey Vest
"Fans of Shay's O'Neil series (as well as PROMISES TO KEEP which features CJ's brother Luke) will find that this is not only an old fashioned romance but more a heartwarming story about the bonds of friendship and family. No one writes family better than Shay. Featuring an extended cast of the O'Neil and Ludzecky clans, additional intrigue, great dialogue including Irish and Polish terms of endearment that you can actually imagine the family uttering, it's a good continuation of the series."
Best Reviews
“Close to You is a delightful contemporary romance. The story line is character driven as the O'Neil clan comes home to insure Pop is okay. The lead couple is a delightful pairing as she takes her job seriously while he takes her seriously. Readers will enjoy Kathryn Shay's appealing tale.”

Romance Reader Connection
“CLOSE TO YOU is a fast paced story about the Secret Service and what is required of their agents when they are guarding the first and second families. The story reveals how complicated their love life can be, not only for the agents, but the people they are involved with as well. Kathryn Shay writes believable characters you can't help falling in love with. While this is my first Kathryn Shay book, it won't be my last. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in this series."
