I learned the hard way that there are no happy endings in life. I lost everyone I cared for, and now I’m nothing but a hardened man.
My job is the only thing that helps me forget the emptiness, it’s constantly on the verge of swallowing me whole.
Then unexpected news sends me in a tailspin. At the same time, my past walks back into my life with clicking heels and a feisty attitude. Mia St. John is the girl I spent one mind-blowing night with in college. Only for her to vanish the next day without a word.
And now she’s the accused in my current assignment.
She claims she’s innocent, yet I sense there is more. I want answers, and it’s got nothing to do with the job. But the more I push, the more I realize what I really want is another shot. Another chance at making her mine.
There’s just one problem. She’s hiding something. I can see it in her eyes, an inferno of secrets…and it’s threatening to burn us both to ash.
