A professional cage fighter agrees to play bodyguard to a country music star—but now they’re both tempted to let their guard down . . .
Country music’s It Girl, Jessi Tucker, is fed up with her family’s stifling security measures. The threat of a dangerous stalker has gotten the men in her life—including her football star cousin, Tuck Tucker—monitoring her every move. To get the freedom she yearns for, Jessi hatches a plan to recruit Tuck’s sexy brawler best friend, Max Grayson, to play the role of her new boyfriend. But if her scheme works, will she be forced to hide her true romantic feelings for the sake of her independence?
Max has been pining for Jessi for years and would do anything to protect her—but a professional cage fighter with too many skeletons in his closet has no business being with one of America’s sweethearts. Yet while Max does his best to keep Jessi at arm’s length, the Tucker family persuades him to accept her offer.
Max believes he can keep Jessi safe from danger. But he’s not sure he can shelter her from his own dark secrets, the media’s unforgiving spotlight—and a mutual desire that’s harder to resist each day . . .
