From the Publisher:

They met at ten, kissed at twelve, and were madly in love by eighteen.

Caleb Deering is the captain of the swim team and the hottest senior in school. He comes from a loving home with a kind father and a caring, but strict mother who is battling breast cancer. Nico Caro is small and beautiful, and has a father who rules with an iron fist—literally.

One morning Caleb forgets himself, and he pecks Nico on the lips at school. A teacher sees them and tattles to the headmaster. The accidental outing at school might be the least of their problems, because the ball set in motion by the school’s calls to their parents could get Nico killed. In the face of that very real danger, Caleb knows he has only one mission in life: to keep Nico safe.

1st Edition published by No Boundaries Press, April 2012.

My View

I need more Nico and Caleb.  They were so sweet and so loving.  Who doesn’t fall in love with childhood sweethearts who stick together through everything.  My heart broke with Caleb’s when Nico was hurt.

Safe is told mostly in flashback and time jumps.  These types of stories either work very well or they don’t work at all.  Kennedy captured the pivotal moments in this couple’s life with love and tenderness.  I was with them as they grew up together.  I was with each of them when they were hurting.  I was with them when it all fell apart.  I loved that each was more concerned about the other than themselves.  This is love.
