Publisher's Summary

An unlikely friendship, a stalking ex, and a serial killer on the loose.

FBI profiler Charlie Bekham prides himself on three unique talents: hacking any database, making women swoon with a cocky smirk, and letting no one see the desperate man buried deep. When a string of murders in Louisville, KY, requires extra help, he’s forced to partner with the brilliant yet shy Special Agent Rhyan Riggs to hunt the killer. Long nights of working the case fan the growing attraction between them, making Charlie question if “just friends” is enough.

Special Agent Rhyan Riggs is running from her past - a narcissistic ex, to be exact. Determined to move on from the terrible breakup, she focuses solely on her career…until him. Special Agent Charlie Bekham. Covered in tattoos, cocky as hell, and bad-boy hot, he’s exactly the type she should avoid at all costs but can’t seem to stay away from.

With more victims and at a dead end, Rhyan does the unthinkable - she puts herself in the killer’s sights. When the killer takes the bait and disappears with the woman Charlie’s fallen for, can he piece together the remaining clues before Rhyan becomes the next body found?

Mine to Keep is the fourth book in the interconnected stand-alone Protection Series. Each book can be listened to as a stand-alone, but because of character crossover, starting from book one, Mine to Protect, is suggested. Due to foul language, discussion of emotional abuse, mention of suicide, and detailed intimate scenes, this book is recommended for listeners 18+.

Charlie and Rhyan are romantic suspense magic!!

“He and I both found what we desperately wanted in each other. To be seen.”

I have come to expect fantastic romantic suspense from Kennedy Mitchell and once again, she does not disappoint. Equally a romance story with ALL the feels and an exhilarating race to catch a serial killer, Mine to Keep is probably my favorite book in the Protection series.

“He makes me feel like me being me is more than okay.”

Rhyan is trying to rediscover her confidence and her sense of self after escaping an emotionally abusive relationship. She’s a brilliant FBI profiler yet a bit awkward; personally, she’s a mess. Charlie helps her begin to see herself as she truly is and she blossoms under his care.

“Charlie was like my missing puzzle piece, pairing with my quirks perfectly.”

I already loved Charlie, but after Mine to Keep, I positively ADORE him. Underneath his bad boy exterior, there is a heart of gold above no other. He just seems to know how to give Rhyan exactly what she needs when she needs it.

“And I knew, in that moment, no one would ever compare to her. Rhyan Riggs had officially ruined me.”

I loved Charlie and Rhyan so much. Their banter was perfection and the chemistry was straight up FIRE!! Add in a delicious suspense story with all the twists and turns and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.

The narration by Teddy Hamilton and Maxine Mitchell just added to the deliciousness of this story. Both conveyed the characters' emotions to perfection.

Heart-pounding and Steamy Romance!

Wow, I was totally captivated by this thrilling, suspenseful, and steamy romance! This story swallowed me whole and wouldn't let go even days after I finished listening to it. Charlie Bekham is an FBI profiler, with a special gift for hacking. He has been transferred to a new division where they don't appreciate his abilities. When a string of murders is brought to his attention, the only person who believes him is the shy yet brilliant Special Agent Rhyan Riggs. They travel together to Louisville, KY to help local officials with their investigation. Rhyan is running from a toxic relationship and has thrown herself into her work. But when tattooed, cocky agent Bekham joined their team, she felt things she hadn't ever felt before. She is anxious, and over thinks everything, and Charlie is intrigued by the brilliant, quirky agent. The more they work together the hotter the fire burns between them. They are both a bit flawed, but they see each other beyond the surface, and begin to fall hard for each other. They work well together, as they get closer to finding the murderer. But will their feelings for each other compromise their case, and put more lives in danger, including their own? This fast paced story, with it's twists and turns, took my breath away and had me completely riveted. I loved both Charlie and Rhyan, they were so great together, and their chemistry was explosive!
Teddy Hamilton, and Maxine Mitchell were so perfect as Charlie and Rhyan. They nailed all the characters so completely, making me see, and understand them so clearly, and helped me to empathize with them as well. They made this story even more exciting! I absolutely loved this heart-pounding, and steamy romance.

The past can’t hurt anymore!

Rhyan and Charlie are both traumatized from bad relationships (or lack of) in their pasts. Rhyan’s low self esteem causes her to not trust Charlie’s motives. Charlie’s good looks have only ever gotten him one thing. However, they learn that together they can over the demons of the past and grow together.

Teddy & Maxine do a fabulous narrating. Their voices were perfect for Rhyan and Charlie! It’s makes you feel like you’re in the moment with characters!! Their voices are sexy, dramatic, and funny at all right times!!
