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.
