From USA Today bestselling author Autumn Jones Lake comes a steamy standalone romance featuring a swoon-worthy single dad and the one woman he absolutely shouldn’t fall in love with.
It’s a hot summer morning and I’m already running late.
I’m no one’s white knight, but when I see a girl in trouble, I have to help.
I didn’t know it would be Aubrey Dorado, the girl I swore was off-limits.
Now she’s under my skin and I can’t get her out of my head.
So, I did the worst thing possible and hired her to work in my gym.
Lusting after my new employee breaks my number one rule.
But each day she tempts me with her sweet personality and clever mind.
I’ve been burned by love before.
Romance is a risk I can’t afford.
But how much longer can I resist the attraction simmering between us?
I don’t walk my neighbor’s dog often, but when I do, of course, he knocks me off my feet.
Even better? The one to come to my rescue is my swoony self-defense teacher, Sullivan “Sully” Wallace.
I’m so broke that when he offers me a job, I jump at it.
Now I’m spending way too much time with my untouchable crush.
Worse, he makes it clear he has no romantic interest in me.
And just when I think he’s changed his mind, the biggest mistake of my life returns to ruin everything.

Warnings and Wildfires
Fantastic!! I was so excited to get a new book from Autumn Jones Lake! I’ve read everything she’s written that’s available.
This book was absolutely wonderful. Sully and Aubrey are so good together and so good for each other. I’m hoping Jake and Celia will get a story soon- but not before AFTER BURN! I’m so anxious for another LOKI book I feel like I’m in withdrawal mode.
THANK YOU Autumn Jones Lake for writing such wonderful stories and linking them all together the way you do!
The past can Haunt but the future will set you free
I have always love the new stories when Autumn puts out a new book. This newest story she has released is in the same Lost Kings world , but it is also different. New characters and old come together to blend perfectly in this story. As you read this story it is like the people are there with you and not a story at all. They pop off of the page.
Both Sully and Aubrey have a past that neither know much about. How much to tell and how fast to tell can make or break things. But then again rules are meant to be broken, so why not take risks? Read along as these two try to figure everything out without losing themselves or letting the past dictate the future
Amazing as always!!
Oh my god y’all, Autumn Jones Lake knows how to write a damn book!! Love love loved this book! Doesn’t matter that she switched from writing about MC’s to something else, she still makes us feel all the things! There is always so much depth, heart, sassiness, chemistry and alpha males, that you just can’t help falling in love with everything she writes!! I won’t post any spoilers but this is a fabulous story and you must must must read it!!
