From NYT and USA Today best-selling author A.L. Jackson comes a single-parent, second-chance romance....
Izzy Lane was everything I never deserved.
Sweet and kind.
Beautiful in a way that stole my breath.
I started crawling through her window when I was just a boy to escape the brutality of my father.
She became my best friend.
My safe haven.
The girl I’d do anything to protect.
Only what she really needed protecting from was me.
I left town when Maxon Chambers broke my heart at 17.
For years, he refused my calls.
It devastated me even more that he pretended we’d even existed.
Thirteen years later, I’m back with the son he doesn’t know we share.
Now, he’s grown into a man I know I should resist, but who makes my knees weak.
Sexier than sin and more tempting than ever.
A detective on the Charleston force, he lives on the outside of safety, devoted to protecting the people of his city.
But with the way he’s looking at me now? I’m pretty sure what needs protecting is my heart.
Can we mend the pieces of us? Or will the danger that ruined our pasts steal the hope of our future?
