Sunny Shelly’s Review: Wanting You Close, by Kennedy Fox


Wanting You Close

Archer & Everleigh duet, #2



Wanting You Close is now available on all retailers!

I never imagined my new roommate would be the man I’d actually fall for. Though I don’t get close to the people I sleep with, he’s been my exception. Archer acts emotionally unavailable while he focuses on starting over, but our connection is too strong to ignore.

He’s rugged on the outside and sweet on the inside—the opposite of my usual type. I see the way his eyes gaze up and down my body, making it harder to keep my feelings in check. Knocking down his walls is no easy task, especially with my brother interfering, but I refuse to give up.

When lines are crossed and emotions bubble over, trouble finds us. We both have pasts that have leaked into our present—now I’m scared it’ll destroy the one secret we’ve been keeping

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

The payoff for Archer and Everleigh’s story was worth the wait! Wanting You Close is the second book in a duet, and should be read after Forcing You Away.

After that cliffhanger, I needed to know what happened next with these two! Archer proves how much he loves Everleigh over and over again as they try to figure out who was behind her attack. But they both have people from their pasts out to get them, so keeping Everleigh safe — as well as his new friends in Lawton Ridge and his sister in Wyoming —ends up being quite a difficult task.

In between the romantic suspense, there are so many sweet moments between Archer and Everleigh. And lots and lots of sex! These two really love to get it on! But there is a solid foundation of friendship between them, and I love how well they communicate (aside from when he lied to keep her safe).

I loved the cameos by Liam and Maddie from the Roommates series, and Archer and Everleigh’s epilogue was perfect. (Although I would love to read an extended epilogue for all three of these couples!) I was so happy to see that Archer’s sister Annie is married in the future — dare I hope that she gets a story someday?

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
