Life is a gamble Nikki isn't willing to take. Over the years, Zach has gone from being the boy next door to the only man to hold her heart. But life has made a habit of getting in their way. And the Zach standing before her now with his heart in his hands and love in his eyes doesn't know her pain. How justice has failed her.
The odds are stacked against him, but Nikki is the only woman Zach has ever loved. When fate puts her back in his life, he'll challenge the devil himself to keep her. But Zach doesn't really know the stakes. He doesn't know what life has already dealt her, and how she survived.
