Keegan and Blue: A love story

Tangled_Up_in_Blue_BoxSet COVERTangled Up in Blue and Shelter from the Storm are the first two books in the Ikana College series written by author JD Brick.

Together, the books play out in a small college town, over the wind-swept prairie of an Oklahoma ranch and on a blood-soaked battlefield in Afghanistan. It’s searing and sexy, both heart-wrenching and electrifying. As one reviewer put it, “this story is so beautifully written, so heartwarming, so intriguing, I just couldn’t put it down.”




Keegan Crenshaw needs a hero. She’s a straight-A student from a famous Oklahoma family and the youngest-ever editor of her college newspaper. She’s got a lot to prove. But she’s got enemies. Someone’s out to get her. Someone’s got her running scared. And she runs right into the arms of a red-hot boy named Blue.

Deep down, Blue is still the brave soldier who risked his life for others in Afghanistan. He’s still a hero, even if he no longer believes it. All he wants now, though, is to make music and bury the secret that could destroy his future. Blue tries hard to be a good guy. But he’s wrestling with demons he can barely control. And when Keegan moves into his house and very quickly into his heart, his hard-fought control slips away.

Keegan and Blue can’t stay away from each other, can’t stop thinking about each other. They have a connection—body, mind and soul—they cannot resist. But it will cost them dearly.

Secrets have a way of exploding into the light. Sometimes it’s hard to know who’s a hero and who’ll turn out to be a heartbreaker. Is Blue the love of Keegan’s life, her knight in shining armor? Or will he become an agonizing mistake?

Tangled Up in Blue and Shelter from the Storm explore the consequences of deception, the meaning of courage and the redeeming value of sacrificial love.

The Ikana College series follows the lives and complicated loves of the residents of an infamous, off-campus party house. Book Three in the series, You Belong to Me, will be released soon.
