But it's when he offers her a job trying to find out who's after his club that the attraction has the chance to spark to life. Elise has kept herself very guarded since she witnessed something as a child that no one should ever have to witness. But when she meets Archer, he somehow manages to sneak past her usual defenses. Will she let him all the way in? And what of Archer? He too keeps himself at a distance because his time serving as a Green Beret had him seeing and doing things he'd rather not remember, rather not psychoanalyze. But will that tendency to keep himself distant from his feelings ruin what he and Elise are building? Whew, Elise and Archer practically scorched my Kindle! But more importantly, it was obvious their deep connection was building from their first meeting. I felt so for Elise, her backstory was heartbreaking, and I wanted something, someone, great for her. Archer was definitely that, once he got past his bonehead behavior near the end, and their story was sexy and emotionally substantial. I can't wait for Save Me, Hazel and Kieran's story, next.

    If you’ve read this series from the beginning (this is only the second book) then you’ll notice the story begins where the first book left off, seamlessly. If you haven’t, I don’t think you’ll have any issue reading this as a standalone.

Obviously, I think you should start at the beginning (I am a fanatical fan of Stacey’s lol) but it’s totally up to you :) But let’s talk a bit about Elise and Archer! These two surprised me, or rather their journey surprised me. In a good way of course lol I can’t really say why, but I wasn’t expecting their story to tug at my heart as much as it did. I’d met these two in the first book, and to say they were antagonistic towards each other would be putting it mildly and I guess I thought I would be reading a journey more on the hate to love you, side. That’s not even close to what we got. My heart is overflowing after reading their story. Their background/history (for both) was not fluffy clouds and rainbows. Elise has some traumatic experiences from her past and Archer’s experience in the military is equally traumatic. Having both had trauma in their lives allowed them to grow closer and use those experiences to heal each other and build a relationship. The storyline of course had the mystery aspect to it, but I didn’t find it to be center stage at all. Truth be told, for me, it wasn’t a mystery at all. The development of their relationship was the true focus here and it definitely took center stage. I loved the choices that Stacey made with their characters and not adding drama for drama because they already brought enough history into their relationship due to their pasts. This is one of my favorite reads by Stacey in a while. I love all her books in one way or another, but I felt these two when I read their story and I liked that a lot. It goes without saying, but maybe I’ll say it anyway :) but Stacey is one of the best authors I know that incorporates the sinfully sexy into her storylines and makes you shiver and tingly with every scene. From the erotic to the romantic, she hits the mark every time. Sometimes her heat level is a simmer, and sometimes it is boiling point hot, but every time, no matter which, it is deliciously written :) Go forth and enjoy! Stacey has yet to ever disappoint me in the many years I’ve been reading her stories and I am sure she won’t disappoint you as well! #trust Download your copy today!

    Keep Me is the second book in Stacey Kennedy’s Phoenix series, and I was eager to dive into this one after enjoying Watch Me. Although I did not enjoy this quite as much as I enjoyed the first book, it was another addictive read.

    I love all of these men from Phoenix, so much, they never disappoint. I wasn’t sure how Archer and Elise’s story was going to play out, but I should have known that Stacey would make it perfect. Elise had a very bad childhood and she saw what live and bad marriages did to people. Archer was drown to very from their very first meeting, but as soon as Elise’s fears got the best of her, she ran. Phoenix is a great series and I can’t wait to get Kieren and Hazel’s story.

    This is just a nice mystery, and the love story is almost a sidebar. I liked both elements of this.

Book 2 in the Phoenix series which can easily be read as a standalone. Archer is all alpha and extremely handsome. He is ex special forces and now Head of Security at the Phoenix. Owned by Rhys Harrington, the Phoenix is a sex club for NYC’s elite. A safe and private place for their voyeuristic, erotic lifestyle. The story starts when someone has hacked into the firewall of the club’s security system, Archer is furious over the breach and determined to find out who the culprit was. Elise is a strong, ballsy woman with a wicked sense of humour and great personality. She is an excellent Private Investigator and was the one who helped her friend Zoey Parker hack into the Phoenix. Watch Me #1 in the Phoenix Series tells the story of Zoey’s revenge plans and her love story with Rhys. Archer is infuriated that Elise was the hacker but very impressed with her skills. They can’t stand each other but he realises she’d be a worthwhile addition to the security team. He arranges to meet her for a drink to discuss the recent threat on the club to see if she will help. Much to his annoyance Archer finds that he is attracted to the sassy and snarky PI. She manages to constantly outsmart him which makes him curious about her and really sparks his interest. Archer enjoys working for Rhys and as well as looking after the security he also enjoys taking part in the club shows with his friends, Kieran Black and Hunt Walker. Elsie doesn’t understand Zoey’s enjoyment of the Phoenix but agrees to attending one night to help Archer with the problem with one of the members. Archer teases and tempts her during the show while she watches totally engrossed. She is now intrigued with him but embarrassed about her reactions to the show. This night changes everything between them and is the start of their relationship. Their banter is great and she has such fun annoying Archer, pushing his buttons like no-one ever has. I loved how she so easily irritated him and was always playing games with him. Their chemistry is sizzling and it was amusing how they both want the other but didn’t want to fully admit it. Elise likes a no attachment lifestyle due to her childhood experiences so fights her feeling for Archer. He has seen and experienced horrific things while serving his country so has built up walls to protect himself. While investigating the attack on the club’s privacy and her own PI clients, they grow close and have to decided what they want from each other and if they have a future. With all the suspense and intrigue interwoven with the sexual tension and desire, the author has written a really interesting book to keep the reader on their toes. I liked the strong friendship the three women have and it is the same with the four men. The author has made each of them flawed in some way but she shows how meeting the right person can heal and mend. Zoey once told Elise that the Phoenix was life changing and can change the course of your life, making things better, stronger and happier. Will it have that effect on her? Will they sort themselves out romantically and while they are at it, can they solve the cases? I loved the ending as it was so appropriate for this couple, made me smile and I felt it showed how far they had both come. The result of the cases weren't as dramatic as I thought they'd be but we do get the start of another threat to the club to be resolved. In the epilogue we are given a snippet about the next book in the series with Elise’s roommate Hazel Rose and her crush on Kieran. I am sure whatever they have experienced in the past will be as heartbreaking and compelling as we had with this couple.

Archer Westbrook is head of security at the exclusive club and when someone hacks into the system, he will find out who it was and why they did it. What he finds out is surprising, and also intriguing. When he meets Elise Fanning, private eye, there is more to her than just what his eyes can see. When Archer offers Elise a job to help him find out who is targeting the club, she knows it will be hard to keep her walls up. There is something on a deeper level pulling them towards each other. While Archer is retired Army Special Forces, Elise is an independent, strong woman, they seem to clash with every decision. With one touch from the other, will they give in and give a relationship a chance? Can they figure out who has targeted the club and why? I am loving this series, it is filled with alpha males, strong women, it’s hot with a touch of mystery. Everything you need in a great story. I would recommend reading the first one because you don't want to miss a thing with this series. Ruthie – ☆☆☆☆ This is the second book in the series, it follows on from the previous one, and whilst it is not essential to have read it first, I would definitely say that you would benefit from reading them in order. Elise's hacker friend, Penny, showed up some security issues in book one, and now Elise is getting more work from the Phoenix club – this means she has to spend time with Head of Security, Archer – their chemistry is combustable, so it is both a pleasure and a danger. It is hugely enjoyable watching the two of them dealing with their work relationship and pushing the boundaries as Elise goes undercover in the club. This is another sensual read, with a great mix of humour, intrigue, and plenty of passion. I am looking forward to the next installment already. Avid Reader – ☆☆☆☆ M/F Romance Triggers: Talk about childhood trauma and murder Archer hates to lose. But when he’s beaten by Elise at his own game, he knows that she’s the person he needs when someone breaches the club again. Elise is smart as a whip, caring, and wants to get justice for everyone she can. Her associate, Penny, is also hilarious and gets the job done with Elise. Archer and Elise have been dancing around their attraction for a while now and when a case comes up that Archer needs Elise on, it’s the perfect time to get her in the club. The case is a non-starter. I actually wish we could’ve had a more involved case because it was more filler than anything. But the chemistry between Archer and Elise will burn your book pages! Whew, they have great chemistry, and their friends are rooting for them. It was a fast, steamy read. I can’t wait for the next book – Hazel is adorable and yet, I sense she has a tigress hiding underneath that shy exterior!

Keep Me is the second installment in Stacey Kennedy's Phoenix series. I have not read the first book in the series but I think it is safe to say these can be read as standalones (I do want to hurry up and read the first book now). Elise Fanning is a PI in NYC who witnessed tragedy at a young age and has lived by certain life codes since then. She recently managed to breach the security for the elite club, Phoenix which put their head of security on her tail. She was merely helping her best friend out but little did she know that this stunt would alter her life forever. Archer Westbrook is the head of security at Phoenix and is completely in awe of Elise and the fact that she was able to breach the club's security. He puts one of his guys up to finding out everything they can about Elise. When an issue arises at the club he enlists her help because he knows she is the best at what she does. Elise and Archer are two in the same and yet different. Neither of them believe in commitment for different reasons but they feel the intense attraction buzzing between the two of them. One night at Phoenix changes things for them a little at a time. They both must learn to let down their walls and open up to the idea of a forever with each other. Archer is not the best at communicating and has his work cut out for him if he wants to keep the woman he loves. This was my first Stacey Kennedy book and I really liked it. I didn't simply read this book....I devoured it and cannot wait for the next installment. Along with her main characters she sets up the next two characters for their story. I would probably suggest reading Watch Me (book one) but it isn't absolutely necessary. ****I was given an advanced copy of this in exchange for an honest review****

    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Keep Me by Stacey Kennedy is an erotic novel. It's the second book from the Phoenix series. Elise Fanning, a private investigator, had breached the security system of Phoenix, the ultra-exclusive, upscale sex club. Archer Westbrook was furious about it. Two months later they made a truce since her best friend Zoey was engaged with his best friend Rhys. Archer had a job for her that included members of the club.

Elise Fanning, a private investigator, had breached the security system of Phoenix, the ultra-exclusive, upscale sex club. Archer Westbrook was furious about it. Two months later they made a truce since her best friend Zoey was engaged with his best friend Rhys. Archer had a job for her that included members of the club. She had to get in and investigate herself. From the beginning, it was obvious that there was sexual tension between them so he created a scene to explore it. It was an explosive experience that he couldn't wait to repeat. A break-in and the minimum exposure of the club had them working closely and they got to know each other better. They quickly were falling for each other but Elise's past kept her from moving forward. Could Archer break her walls and convince her to give them a chance? It's such a sexy and romantic story. This one is about the head of security, Archer Westbrook, and the PI Elise Fanning. From the first book, it was pretty obvious that those two would be explosive since they batted heads constantly. I liked the little action and mystery that it had but those sex scenes were hot as hell. Especially the first one at the club, panty-melting for sure. I loved the characters and their stories. She had a tragic past and he had a heroic one. I truly appreciate that each book of this series has a totally different plot, it's refreshing and not tiring at all. I am in love with the Phoenix series and I can't wait to read the next one. I will rate this with 4.5 stars.

    Keep Me is the first book by Stacey Kennedy that I have read and I was not disappointed by this book. While Keep Me is book two in her Phoenix series I didn't feel like I didn't understand what was going on or that there was something big that I was missing. There is nothing I dislike more in reading a book in a series that claims to be a standalone and you still have no idea what's going on.

I thoroughly enjoyed the characters that Stacey has created and can't wait to see what happens with the next book(s) she is doing with this series. Elise is one of the best PIs in town and a pretty good hacker too, so good that she was able to hack into the secret sex club, Phoenix's mainframe in no time. Because of that hack a lot has changed in her life, one of her best friends is now engaged to the owner of said club, and now she has a new job for the club and has the annoying head of security, Archer, popping up all over the place bothering her. Archer hired Elise because he knows she's the best and he'll figure out if there has been a leak at his club when a member breaks one of their rules. When they start working together he's still a little sore that she was able to hack into his system, but he soon realizes just how good she is when she is able to pick the member out of a crowd without being told they were the one she was investigating. What starts as a one time thing quickly becomes a fling and then so much more. But both Archer and Elise have baggage that they have to move on from before they can be commit to one another.

Elise Fanning is a private investigator who hacks into the Phoenix Club to help her best friend gain entry but what she doesn’t count on is the club’s head of security Archer Westbtook confronting her. Archer is intrigued by Elise, she is smart, sassy and feisty and she is not afraid to give as good as she gets. In fact she may well be the perfect woman for him. The chemistry sizzles between them and as it builds it becomes too hard to ignore. He also admires the fact that Elise was able to hack in to a system that he thought was unhackable. When another security breach occurs, arch asks Elise to help him investigate. Of course the only problem is that she will have to attend the club but will she survive it? There were some surprising twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. Elise has a lot of baggage from her past. Can Archer break down the walls that Elise has built up? Can he convince her to take a chance on them? One click and find out.

    Archer thought his security was the best but when Elise hacks her way through his system Archer must find out how. A sexy and strong woman is just what Archer likes but is Elise more than he can handle or is she just what he needs? I enjoyed being along for the ride as these two figured things out. Archer is as alpha as they come but that does not scare Elise. As the two begin to work together to figure out who has the club in their sites the sexual tension cannot be denied. Archer and Elise are Archer thought his security was the best but when Elise hacks her way through his system Archer must find out how.

Archer and Elise are good together but can the two find a way to a real relationship? Both characters have their own pasts and hurts to deal with alongside their new emerging emotions. The attraction that they have is strong and will not be ignored. Archer and Elise work well together and I loved seeing them find their way both in and out of the bedroom. It was fun to see them go from fighting each other to fighting their attraction. Their story pulled me right in and kept me interested all the way to the end. Once again, the author gives readers well developed characters and a good plot that grabs your attention.

Archer runs security at the Phoenix, and hired Elise to help investigate a case concerning the club. Archer is a strong, confident character, that also has a tender side. I just love when authors create characters who are not looking for love, but end up finding it anyway! Overall, I enjoyed this book, and I am anxious for where book 3 will lead us. There were various twists and turns with added steam in between! This book was a wild, hot ride filled with just the right amount of lust, love, and suspense!

Elise's hacker friend Penny showed up some security issues in book 1, and now Elise is getting more work from the Phoenix club - this means she has to spend time with Head of Security, Archer - their chemistry is combustable, so it is both a pleasure and a danger. It is hugely enjoyable watching the two of them dealing with their work relationship and pushing the boundaries as Elise goes undercover in the club. This is another sensual read, with a great mix of humour, intrigue and plenty of passion. I am looking forward to the next installment already.

The case is a non-starter. I actually wish we could’ve had a more involved case because it was more filler than anything. But, the chemistry between Archer and Elise will burn your book pages! Whew they have great chemistry and their friends are rooting for them. It was a fast, steamy read. I can’t wait to for the next book - Hazel is adorable and yet, I sense she has a tigress hiding underneath that shy exterior!

However, can these two protect each other before one of them becomes a casualty? I really loved this author and I will continue to read her book and this series.
