I had no idea when Sadie Cole caught my eye, that she would also steal my heart. My daughter's new dance teacher with her jet black hair and haunting blue eyes intrigued me. Her tight outfits and bare skin taunted me. Most importantly, she was amazing with my daughter.
But Sadie's reputation proceeded her... and I couldn't afford any entanglements that would cost me custody of my daughter.
The more I spent time with her the more I realized the rumors were wrong— the town was wrong. I wanted to be the man she could count on. When what's best for my daughter and what's right for Sadie are in direct conflict, I hope I make the right choice.
I left my hometown right after high school to escape a scandal. Returning home, seeing the way they all still looked at me, I realized coming back was a mistake. Until sexy, single dad, Tanner Green glanced my way.
Those blue eyes saw too much, they looked right through me in search of the truth.
His kind heart and stacked body tempted me to stay and face the rumors. But I've never let anyone get that close—especially a cop, with the sweetest daughter in the world, because my secrets ruined everything and everyone.
With him by my side things could be different... his love was worth taking the chance.

The emotional undertow in this book is deep and it is strong
The emotional undertow in this book is deep and it is strong. You may find that you want to keep the tissues handy – just in case. This book takes on some really big subjects. Some criminal, some in the court of public opinion, and some that are just plain personal. For the most part, I didn’t realize just how deep the subject matter had gotten until I had waded in way over my head. As the child of an alcoholic, there are parts of this book that hit really close to home, and I found this story to be both inspiring and heartbreaking at the same time. Through the whole book I just wanted to hug Sadie tight and fight all the demons for her. So, yeah, it was very easy for me to understand what drew Tanner in. I am in awe at the noble character of this man. No matter what was happening around him, he held true to his personal belief in what was right. This isn't a light or a quick read but it's worth every second of the time invested in it.
I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.
