HE THOUGHT HE LOST HIS CHANCE TO BE WITH HER.
As a former SEAL and now Alpha Team's technical analyst, Derek West is all about the numbers. But, when this Texas native unexpectedly bumps into the one that got away, he's determined to beat the odds. Derek wants to make Charlie a part of his life again—especially when he discovers she's been living with a monster.
SHE WANTS TO ESCAPE.
To others, Charlotte "Charlie" Porter's elaborate life seems picture-perfect, but then no one truly knows what goes on behind closed doors. After a chance meeting with the one man she's never been able to forget, Charlie begins to dream of the road not taken. Unfortunately for them both, it's a road that could prove to be lethal.
HE'LL MOVE HEAVEN AND EARTH TO KEEP HER SAFE
When Derek shows up just when she needs him most, Charlie finally breaks loose from her abusive husband's clutches. But as she and Derek begin to explore what could've been, these friends-to-lovers realize Charlie is in more danger than ever before.
Will Derek be able to keep the love of his life safe, or will an obsessive killer destroy the second chance both he and Charlie have always dreamed of?
**Author's note: INTENTIONAL RISK is a friends-to-lovers romance that begins as a cautious, slow-burn. But once it ignites, watch out! This stand-alone, full-length story is filled with hot romance, loads of action, and edge-of-your-seat suspense readers have come to expect from this series.
This book is not for the faint of heart. Please do not read this book if you are a victim of abuse. I thought I could handle it, but I had to skip parts of the book because of triggers. That being said, it is far more realistic than I would have liked.
