He knows he could have handled the situation better, and he has lived with that ever since the day they broke up.
Hailey used to love her job, the city, and life. That was until she suffered the unimaginable at the hands of a coworker. Since the assault life just isn’t the same, and she feels like she’s losing control. Now the job she loved is her personal hell, and the city she used to enjoy doesn’t seem so great. She’s got baggage, a lot of it, and so many regrets she can’t even count them all.
When Wes learns that Hailey’s world has come crashing down around her, he finally puts his hurt and pride away and reaches out to the woman he once loved. Hailey may think she’s unlovable, but he’ll show her that she’s wrong. Wes is all in and ready to show her that she can depend on him. A little work never bothered him before especially when he’s playing for her heart.
This is the 5th book in the Portwood Brothers series and like all the others it doesn’t disappoint you.
Wes and Hailey met in college and thought they had their whole lives planned out. They would be together forever. But often what you plan to happen and what happens are not the same.

This is definitely a book to add to your collection as Emily Robertson has created another winning romance book.
