About the Book
Eight months ago Vanessa Saint John’s life was a lot different than it is now…
After losing Gabriel, and the discovery of his and Ava’s indiscretions, Vanessa becomes depressed and turns to partying and alcohol as a distraction.
Recognizing that she’s spiraling out of control, she manages to turn her life around. Still, her mother poses as a problem, and like the social climber she is, she fixes Vanessa up with the very rich and affluent Stellen Webb.
Vanessa is nothing more than a pawn in her mother’s quest for wealth and recognition, and unknowingly Cynthia pushes Vanessa into the arms of another man; Diesel Knox, a tattooed country boy with an attitude.
Clean and sober Ava has spent the last eight months in Sicily running away from her problems, until her mother summons her back to Colorado…
Reluctantly Ava returns to a broken Vanessa, a bartending job, and an unexpected love interest. Maxwell Gallagher, a much older man, who has a six-year-old son.
Will Vanessa finally break free of her parents grip? Will Ava finally find the happiness she so desperately seeks? Or will she forever be in the hell of her own making?
“What are you doing?” I asked my voice coming out in a breathy whisper.
“Tasting you.” He groaned sucking me off his fingers. Oh. My.
“Is that supposed to turn me on?” My stare glued to his mouth.
“Aw, shit baby don’t talk like that, or I’ll say forget this self-restraint bullshit and take you against this damn wall.”
“What if I want you too?” I gripped his belt buckle forcing him back against me.
“Fuck, Vanessa, don’t tell me that.” He groaned resting his forehead against mine.
“Why, Diesel? Don’t you want me?” My audacity, I justified, was coming from the orgasm he just gave me.
“Of course I fuckin’ want you, I’ve wanted you since the first time I saw you, but I’m not takin’ you against this wall. When I make you mine, it’ll be on a bed while I slowly peel off your clothes. When I can cherish and devour this perfect body of yours because that’s what you deserve, Vanessa, and not a quick fuck against a wall, you deserve to be made love to.” My heart tugged even though getting fingered outside against the wall was very, uh, unromantic, having him say things like that made me trust him and want him even more.
“Okay.” I replied.
“Okay.” He agreed, “I want to dance with you.” He said taking my hand we began walking towards the inside of the house. Which made me wonder why he was here to begin with.
“Wait, why are you here?” I said pulling him back.
“I was invited.” He replied tightening the hold on my hand.
“By who?” Diesel slowed he turned to look at me.
“The girl I was playing beer pong with.” Oh. Oh! He came with another girl a girl he probably already slept with or was going to have sex with. Which made me feel cheap, and then I remembered I had a boyfriend, which made me even feel worse. What was I doing? This wasn’t like me. I wasn’t this girl. Pulling my hand out of his grasp I hugged myself before speaking.
“I have to find Mallory, I’m not feeling to well.” I said walking away from him.
“Vanessa, no wait. It’s not what you’re thinkin’. I just needed a distraction I need somethin’ to do than to think about you all day.” He said curling his hand around my arm to stop me.
“You mean someone to do.” I said yanking my arm free.
“You have a boyfriend, what am I supposed to do, Vanessa?” He loved to remind me.
“I know okay! I know I have a boyfriend.” I covered my face frustrated that I did. Ashamed that I just let Diesel do that to me, while there was still Stellen in the picture.
“I want to be with you, and it sure as hell seems you want to be with me. So, cut that chump loose so we can be together.”
“It’s not that easy, Diesel. You don’t understand.” I sighed my hands falling to my sides. Diesel looked at me in defeat, “fuck,” he sighed rubbing is face. “Give me a call when it gets easy.” Diesel walked away, and worse yet, I let him.

Keep It Safe is the second book in KIS series. It´s not a standalone. You need first to read Keep It Secret the first book in the series because in Keep It Safe we have the continuation of Ava and Vanessa´s story
Both of this novels brought something new‚ different and refreshing. In both of them we get to see both Ava and Vanessa´s POV‚ to live inside their heads and get to know them and the reasons behind their actions.
You can clearly see how big the impact of what happened at the end of the first book on both of them is. The both grew a lot in this novel.
For me this novel was better than the first one. It had less darkness than the first one which made reading more enjoyable. I love the new characters that we had the opportunity to meet in this novel and how their added and amazing touch to this novel.
