Close to You

Book 2: The O'Neil Family

CLOSE TO YOU is 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.

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.

“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

“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.”
