His world became hers, and she became his.

Simplistically, Torin eases his troubled mind. She becomes someone Synovi cherishes, making him not want to ever share her with anyone else.Please note: Keep You To Myself is book #1 in the Unorthodox Love series, a series of interconnected standalone contemporary urban romance books with no cliffhangers.
