MINE TO HOLD by Kennedy L. Mitchell is LIVE!
Can Bryson keep her safe, or will Tinley’s past nightmare become her new reality?
Every moment, Tinley Harper lives in fear that the man who abducted her ten years ago will keep his promise and return to finish what he started. Scared and alone in her older brother’s absence, she welcomes a familiar handsome face, Special Agent Bryson Bennett, when he comes knocking on her door.
FBI Agent Bryson Bennett knows it’s time to put his past behind him and move on from the tragic accident that left him a single father. When his best friend calls out of fear for his little sister’s safety, Bryson jumps in to protect the beautiful Tinley for fear that another person close to him will be taken away.
Stuck together in her tiny apartment, the two fight to control their unspoken attraction. Anonymous disturbing gifts, new murders, and watchful eyes that monitor their every move signal that Tinley’s terrifying past is now bleeding into her present. As passion burns, dark secrets are revealed, and the elusive stalker seeks to catch them unawares. Can Bryson keep her safe, or will Tinley’s past nightmare become her new reality?
Mine to Hold is a standalone romantic thriller, the fifth book in the interconnected Protection Series. Each book can be read as a standalone but due to character crossover the series is best read in order. Please note this book DOES contain several triggers (stalking, murder, mention of past abuse, memories of time in captivity, and more) and detailed mature content. This book is recommended for readers 18+.

Wow! What a freaking rollercoaster and I loved every minute. This book had me on the edge of my seat and to top it off had a sexy as hell alpha! Best friends Tallon and Bryson are both in government agencies. Ten years ago, Tallon’s younger sister Tinley escaped a serial killer. Bryson has a crush on Tinley but she’s his best friend’s little sister and there’s an age difference. He moved on, got married and has a little girl. His wife passed away and he struggles with that in more ways than one raising his daughter. Until Tallon calls and asks Bryson if he could go stay with Tinley to keep an eye on her because a string of cases he is working on seem to have the same MO as the serial killer that took Tinley.
Tinley also starts to feel she is being watched and is getting weird vibes from places and certain people. So when Bryson shows up she is more then happy to have him around. Not to mention she wants to jump his bones! Their chemistry is off the freaking charts and Bryson is like a super alpha…so hot! I needed a cigarette after some of their sexy scenes! Needless to say these two set the pages on fire while keeping Tinley from her serial killer. I can’t wait for some other characters in future books. There is a special person who I wanted to see get taken by the serial killer. The woman is pure evil and you get to see a peek of things she has done in the past. I’d like to see a book about her and the karma coming back to bite her ass! I highly recommend this book but set yourself up cozy and with some snacks because you will not want to put this book down!
