I can’t escape the past no matter how fast or how far I run.
I’m broken and damaged, and nothing will change that.
Not after my husband died overseas and I was left alone.
All I can do is keep moving forward.
But what I don’t expect is one cop in particular to get under my skin.
Making me want something more.
He hates me.
Everywhere I turn, he’s there, watching me.
Waiting for me to screw up.
I’m not going to give up, though.
Not when I finally found something that makes me happy.
I know how short life can be and I’m not backing down.
Remy Townsend doesn’t stand a chance once I make up my mind.
After all, we grew up together.
And I know every button to press to get what I want.
One drunken promise is going to ruin my life.
I told him I’d watch out for his wife if he died.
The task was easy enough when I was overseas.
All I had to do was send a letter, or make a phone call.
But coming home and seeing her will be my undoing.
She’s everywhere I go.
Everywhere I turn.
Now, I can’t take my eyes off her even when I want to.
Keeping her safe means I have to stay away.
Because the thoughts going through my head …
Well they’re enough to send me straight to hell.
Parker Hayes is quickly invading every aspect of my life.
One drunken promise… That’s what it always circles back to.
I’ve been trained to go balls to the wall with every mission.
Never back down. Never surrender. Never walk away.
Even if what we have becomes collateral damage.
All it would take is one night to change the course of Remy and Parker’s life. He left for the Marines while she stayed in their hometown, married another man and gave birth to her son Nox. That is only part of the story as her son’s father was also one of Parker’s friends who passed away while they were serving their country.
Six years later Parker has returned to his hometown determined to honor his final promise to his friend and teammate. He and Parker have never dealt with their past so he is determined to ensure that she and her son are doing okay without being part of their lives but when the danger escalates around them staying away is no longer an option.
Intrigue, surprises and all the feels as Remy and Parker must not only heal from the past but deal with the threats in the present if they are to have a future together.
