A brand-new novel in the New York Times bestselling Hard Feelings series—where nothing’s more dangerous than a bad boy with a broken heart…
First Sergeant Rafe Murano did everything to the extreme. He trained harder, he fought harder, and, unfortunately, he loved harder. And falling for the wrong woman nearly destroyed him.
Home from a deployment and without his missions to consume him, Murano is ravaged by memories of his heartbreak. So he drinks until he’s numb and drowns himself in meaningless one-night stands. But they only take the edge off….
Until he meets Fallon.
Haunted by her past, Fallon Kelly knows all too well about the desperate desire for an escape. So when she sees the tatted-up bad boy who’s one punch away from a ride in the back of a squad car, she offers him a distraction—one that quickly becomes an addiction.
Little does she know, this bad boy can love so hard, it can break her.…
Leverich's third Hard Feelings contemporary (after Feel the Rush) introduces two damaged souls trying valiantly for wholeness and love. Burlesque-club owner Fallon Kelly was tossed out by her well-to-do family as a teenager and has fought to succeed ever since on her own terms. Sgt. Rafe Murano, back from his fourth tour of Afghanistan, is looking to drown the bitter memories in women and alcohol. After Rafe defends one of Fallon's dancers from an aggressive patron, Fallon takes off with him, determined to get to know the scarred soldier. Soon, the chemistry explodes, but unless they can put aside their painful pasts, they have no shot at a real future together. Deeply emotionally painful in some places, humorous in others, this is a tale that will remain in readers' minds long after the last page is turned.
