#SpotlightSaturday: Have Me Forever (Theirs to Keep #1) by Ally Blythe


Welcome back to #SpotlightSaturday. Today, we shine down on Ally Blythe's debut novel, Have Me Forever, which just released last week! 

From the Blurb:

How does one find himself in a compromising situation with his ex-girlfriend’s father? Well, turn to him for comfort when she stomps on your heart—sneak in a little kiss— wait. That wasn’t supposed to happen.

Elias Ruiz plays life safe, which means never rocking the boat with his overbearing parents. Enter Noah Baker, famed author, English Professor, and his girlfriend's father. He’s friendly, caring, and always knows how to put people at ease. But Eli’s parents hate Noah, which means he should avoid him at all costs. Eli tries, but soon the Baker house feels like home. It probably doesn’t help that Eli is a huge “Bakehead,” a diehard fan with a crush… on Noah’s written word? But what starts as innocent admiration quickly turns to passionate, reckless fun.

Despite the risk, they keep falling into each other’s bed. It’s a terrible idea. The complications are endless and he’s questioning everything he thought he knew about himself. When feelings get involved, he has to decide if he’s going to deny a part of who he is, or give in to the secret he’s hidden for so long. But what option does Eli have if he wants Noah forever?

Have Me Forever is a bi-awakening MM, ex-girlfriends father, age gap romance with searing heat, no cheating, and a HEA.


“I’m sorry,” I whisper, analyzing every inhale of breath, every twitch of skin as I watch his face. This tugging sensation starts, telling me to get closer to him, protect him.

“You don’t need to apologize. You didn’t do this… Noah.” His words sound ragged as they tumble from his mouth. I turn my assessment to those lips as a shiver runs down my spine. I lean closer, tipping his chin up with our clasped hands so he has to look at me. It feels different, his skin, covered in a light dusting of hair.

I can’t remember the last time I stood this close to someone, and felt this comfortable intimacy. “Still, I want to apologize.”

He swallows, and I track the motion. Somehow, without my notice, his other hand found its way around my bicep, clinging to the arm caressing his jaw. Wait, when did I start that?

Squeezing my arm, he mumbles something under his breath.


His voice stays quiet, intimate. “I said, is that all you want?”

“What’s that supposed to mean?” My mouth goes dry, my heart picking up speed.

The hesitation from moments ago is gone. He lets go of my arm, placing his palm against my chest before closing my shirt in his fist. “You saw me that day.”

Every part of me goes taught, trying to deny his words. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“In the pool.” He looks up at me then, his hazel eyes dark, pupils blown.

I shake my head, but fail to deny it with words. “For a second. I swear I walked away when I saw…”

“I was thinking about you. I knew it was wrong, but you can’t help what you fantasize about. Right?”

Fucking hell. I know I couldn’t. My hand clenches around his jaw, controlled by a mind of its own.
