Money is my mistress.
Solving problems, my trade.
Until the tables turn, and trouble finds me.
Now on the run, I need a plan. But not before I’m blindsided by a pain-in-the-ass stranger.
Curves, startling blue eyes, and she hates me.
I don’t trust her and with good reason.
My plan is simple: use her.
Then I kiss her. Touch her.
She was my way out, now she’s my downfall.
She’s too smart, too pretty and too good for a thug like me.
Caro Archer loved me once then left me in the wreckage.
Now she’s back with danger on her heels and my heart in her hands.
Her safety should be my top priority.
Only Caro has other plans.
She wants to give us a second chance.
The part of me that aches for more wants to give in.
But I’m the same man she turned her back on all those years ago—the same brute she left in the dust.
What makes her think things will be different this time?
Especially when it’s more than my heart on the line?Second chances don’t come easy for a man like me.
This time, I might not survive.
