Keep it Safe
by Olivia Snow
Series: KIS, #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 16, 2014

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.

Describe Ava in one sentence.
Ava is a terribly lost girl with daddy issues.

Describe Vanessa in one sentence.
Vanessa is loyal to a fault and has a problem saying no to people.

Describe Gabriel in one sentence.
Gabriel is the guy boys want to be and the girls want to date.

Favorite and least favorite scene to write in Keep It Secret?
Least favorite scene to write was Gabriel’s pivotal scene. Without giving too much away, that was really hard to do. My favorite scene(s) to write were when Ava was having cravings. It took me to a place I didn't know existed in my brain. I enjoyed writing the dark stuff.

What’s your guilty pleasure?
Reality TV. Love me some crazy bitches.

If you weren't an author what would you be doing right now?
I don’t like to be called an author I feel like that should be reserved to when you get to Best Seller status. That’s just my opinion. I am first and foremost a mother, so when I’m not writing I’m with my kids. I have three so they take a lot of my time.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
I won’t be corny and say my kids, so I’d say my greatest achievement thus far is being, but not becoming a statistic.

If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
H.H. Holmes, I’d like to know what makes a man that twisted.

What is your go to snack food when writing?
Skittles and red bull.

If you could sit down face to face with any of your characters, who would you choose and why?
With Cynthia, Vanessa’s mother so I could shank the bitch.

What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?
Travel to Italy
Perfect an English accent
Get the nerve to visit a haunted house, like a real one with real ghosts.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
England, I love the culture, accents and rich history of the country.

Favorite Word and Least Favorite Word?
Favorite word: Fuck
Least favorite: The other F word.

Biggest fear?
I think like any writer our biggest, or at least one of our biggest fears is having no one like our stuff. We create so people can enjoy our stories, but if people hate it...well that would suck.

Deepest regret?
Not taking my education serious enough.

Favorite memory?
Pushing all three kids out of my vagina. Not all at once, of course.

Worst flaw?
I have a filthy mouth.

Most annoying pet peeve?
When a certain man, we shall refer to him as Mr. Snow, doesn't take the two extra steps to throw away his trash and just sets it on the kitchen counter…like seriously?

If you could change one thing about yourself…what would it be?
Perk breasts. I’d love perky breasts.
