Sexy, handsome Derek Bolinger is a prick, or at least he believes so. But when his fifteen-year-old daughter Harper shows up on his door step, saying her mother was murdered, Derek is determined to help the girl get through this terrible tragedy.
Detective Olivia Sherwood has no use for a man who neglected his daughter since birth but believes Derek has a reason he is unwilling to share with anyone, including Harper.
As the murder investigation continues to turn up clues about the teen’s mother’s death, Olivia probes deeper into Derek’s past. What secrets is he keeping? And why would he prefer his teenage daughter hate him rather than coming clean with the truth?
All Olivia knows is that she cannot trust Derek with her heart if he can’t be honest with her. And that includes exposing all his secrets. Secrets that maybe should have remained buried.
