Even jaded hearts can be tempted into trying again.
When Angela Donnelly heads to Arizona for a family event, she meets older and hotter than hell, Garrett James.
Garrett runs a small concert venue on the outskirts of Phoenix…and that’s about as close as he wants to come to the music biz. His hey-day in the late 90s, playing bass and singing with his band, Copper Seven, is long gone. Far from the limelight and willingly single, the only woman Garrett wants or needs in his life is his daughter.
That is until he meets the way too young for him, Angie. Long dark hair and long legs have always been his downfall and Garrett can’t keep his eyes, or his hands off of her.
Angie might be young, but she’s no fool. She knows a good thing when she’s found one—Garrett is a once in a lifetime good thing for her.
But Garrett can’t seem to convince Angie that he’s not her once in a lifetime anything. As far as he’s concerned, he’s absolutely the wrong man for her with nothing to offer someone as promising as Angie.
Angie recognizes that Garrett has his heart fully guarded. But when he gives her everything she wants, except his heart, she knows this will be the fight of her life.
And Angie won’t back down. Or give up.
Warning: This book contains a very broken hero and a very determined heroine. An age gap, and a lot of angst.
On a more serious note, here’s the trigger warning: Jaded Heart goes into detail about what alcoholism and drug addiction can do to a person. It also touches on a past death as a result of an overdose and the effect that has on family members.
