Publisher Description

A swoon-worthy romance from USA Today Bestselling Author, J.H. Croix!

Rule #1: Do not fall for your brother’s best friend.

Rule # 2: Absolutely do not fall for your brother’s best friend.

Rule # 3: Don’t break the rules. 


Jackson Stone is hot—like burn-down-buildings kind of hot. He’s also my brother’s best friend, and the memory of one kiss with him years ago still might get to me. Maybe. But, I am not looking for a second chance.

When I return to the small town of Stolen Hearts Valley, my life is a hot mess. I’m a few bucks shy of broke with nowhere else to go. My heart’s battered and bruised, and when it comes to romance, the door is nailed shut. 

But Jackson’s the kind of man women ruin panties over. Oh, and he's my roommate. Talk about too close for comfort.

When I’m at my most vulnerable, he pulls that whole knight-in-shining-armor thing. What can I say? He’s d*mn near impossible to resist.


Shay Martin is my best friend’s little sister. And she’s so hot she nearly sets me on fire. 

She’s a walking complication, and I don’t do complications. But I can’t seem to stay away from her. It doesn't help that her bedroom is across the hall from mine.

Every look, every kiss, every touch nearly brings me to my knees. I can’t keep my balance, much less think. Before I know it, I’ll do anything for her. Complications be d*mned.

*This is a full-length standalone romance with a guaranteed happily-ever-after.

Long winded but worth it

Good read, no real steams sex scenes but intimate one, cute story but long winded I power read though some of the more meaningless parts to the good parts

This Crazy Love

I enjoyed this book. It touched on real problems (domestic abuse and PTSD) and the difficulties people have dealing with these issues. The author didn’t try to sugarcoat the struggles or make light of them. I look forward to reading more from this author.
