Publisher Description

Matt Girard used to be her best friend. 

But he’s a filthy liar. A ruthless heartbreaker.

And a badass military warrior with the kind of lethal skills she so desperately needs…

Evie Baker hasn’t seen Matt in ten years. Not since the night she lost her virginity to him. Now he’s back in town and looking to make things right. Too bad she doesn’t believe a word he says. But then her sister goes missing and Evie’s suddenly a suspect in a murder—and Matt’s the only man she can trust to keep her safe.

Matt knew Evie wanted forever ten years ago, but all he wanted was escape. He’s older and wiser now, and he knows what matters. He’ll do whatever it takes—break any rules necessary—to protect Evie and find her sister. 

And then he’ll do everything he can to win his best friend’s heart and make her his forever.

Good but...

Enjoyed all the action in this book and it seemed well thought out how the events were lined up. My disappointment was the distinct lack of intimate scenes which I thought would have brought the book together more.
