His to Keep

Out of Uniform, #1.5

After warning off a would-be Romeo at the bar, Aaron Robinson decides to finally make his move on Marceline Bellini, his sister’s best friend who he has had a crush on since high school. He had put her firmly in the off limits category because of his sister's friendship with her. Will this be a one-time thing or can Aaron convince Marceline he wants more?

Marceline Bellini is a single mom who is being 'encouraged' to rejoin the dating scene. Aaron Robinson is Marceline's best friend's brother and the Chief of Police. One hot hookup in an alleyway doesn’t make a relationship…or can it?

I thoroughly empathize with Marceline's hesitancy to get involved with anyone. She was badly burned by her high school sweetheart, her child’s father, and has devoted herself to being a great mom and sole provider for her daughter. She’s protecting not only her heart but her daughter’s as well.

Aaron has found his way onto my list of potential book boyfriends. He is hot, funny and a police officer. Did I mention HOT? I really liked that Aaron was patient and ready to settle in for the long haul to establish a role in Marceline's life. Even their disagreements were quickly sorted out because they both had Faith in their relationship. The epilogue was SO sweet!!!

I am a repeat reader of Katee Robert's books and I highly recommend that you check out all of her other titles.

Book Blurb for His to Keep

He’s always wanted her. Now’s his chance to claim what’s his.

School teacher Marceline Bellini gave up everything—men, sex, anything resembling a social life—to raise her young daughter. To be the perfect parent. But when she attends an engagement party in her standard stick-in-the-mud mode, her friends begin plying Marceline with shots. Just enough to convince her that a little fun doesn't sound like a bad idea... and having some naughty fun is an even better one.

Like finding herself deliciously pressed against a dark alley wall by the very familiar and über-hot bod of her best friend's older brother.

After years of waiting in painful silence, cop Zach Robinson finally has Marceline’s attention. And man, does he have it. But nothing could have prepared either of them for the rush of fiery lust between them. So he’ll just have to convince Marceline he’s for real. And that a rainy, lust-fuelled romp is the first step to a lifetime of completely imperfect happiness…
