About the Book
There’s a crush, and then there are the type of feelings that Croft Cruisie evokes from a person.
He’s everything that any straight woman would want: tall, handsome, charismatic, muscular, and sweet.
At least, Carmichael thought he was sweet, until he brings another woman to the gym she owns with her brother, on the night that’s to be their first date, and lets her know in a quick and painful, non-verbal way that her feelings are not reciprocated.
Fast forward six months, and she’s still trying to move on from the rejection.
It doesn’t help that the jerk moves in next door to her, and that she has to see him workout shirtless every single day.
How can a woman get over a silly crush when that silly crush won’t so much as give her room to breathe?
Croft doesn’t know what happened.
One day he was supposed to go on a date with the girl that wouldn’t leave his thoughts for even a second, and the next she’s avoiding him like the plague.
No matter how hard he tries—and admittedly, it isn’t all that hard due to the biggest case of his career taking over his life—he can’t get her to tell him what he did wrong. She refuses to give him a second chance.
At least, not until he’s nearly killed in front of the courthouse, that is.
The moment he sees his chance, he pounces. Or, more literally, he limps.
But the limping is what draws Carmichael in. The Southern charm that was instilled in him since birth will be what gets her to stay.
That’s his plan, anyway.
Funny thing about plans… they never seem to work out how you expect them to.

Lani is married with three children and lives in the Great State of Texas.
Carmichael teaches fitness classes at the gym that she owns jointly with her brother Flint, but her true calling is teaching even if the theater class she is responsible for isn’t exactly a dream come true. She has been attracted to Croft, her brother’s best friend, for as long as she can remember but what she believed would be their first date was an epic fail, and she is isn’t about to open herself up to that hurt again.
Croft is a lawyer, and not only does he attend the gym where Carmichael teaches but he is also her neighbor. He is confused about why she is so upset about that night and nothing he does seems to break through the walls she has built between them. It is only when the danger around them reaches a breaking point that Carmichael realizes that wasting anymore time is not an option, but they are about to realize the danger is far from over.
Intrigue, action and hot chemistry as Carmichael and Croft fight to ensure that the obstacles they face bring them closer rather than tear them apart. Not only do we get to learn more about Carmichael and Croft but get to catch up with all the other characters we know and love as well.
