A friends to lovers, forced proximity, military protector romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Lynn Raye Harris.
She changed her name. Her look. Her location. But what if running away isn’t enough to save her?
Physical therapist Scarlett Reed is looking for a fresh start when she takes a job in another state. Her rules are simple: don’t get close to anyone, and flee at the first sign of danger.
Wounded soldier Malcolm McCoy plans to work hard in rehab so he can get back to saving the world. He isn’t looking for a relationship because the woman he wants belongs to another, but something about prickly Scarlett intrigues him anyway.
When she needs a place to stay, Mal offers her the apartment over his garage - and finds it nearly impossible to keep his hands off his sassy, sexy neighbor. They’re just friends, but they’re both wounded, both harboring secrets. Turning to each other is as natural as breathing. Scarlett knows she shouldn’t get involved, but a little friends with benefits action can’t hurt. Because they’ve agreed that’s all it will ever be.
But someone in Scarlett’s past circles closer, waiting for their chance to strike. And when they do, Mal will realize what he should have known all along. Scarlett’s his, and he’ll brave any storm to bring her back and give her the happily ever after she deserves.
