One job. I had one job.
All I had to do was steal a diamond necklace, and I’d be brought into the Hermosa Beach Crime Syndicate’s inner circle. My brother’s murder would not go unpunished. Pull off one heist, and I would be one step closer to bringing down his killers.
The problem is someone else wants my spot on the crew. This dangerously sexy and infuriating man is in my way, threatening my chance to avenge my family. And he’s also a distraction I don’t need. Lincoln is smug and cocksure of himself, and I’m falling for him.
Maybe quitting college and my job as a barista in Temecula to move north was a spectacularly bad idea, but what choice did I have, the police were no help at all in solving my brother’s slaying. He was all I had in the world, and nobody seems to care but me.
I don’t know why I’m letting this woman get to me. Sure, Melanie’s feisty and stunningly gorgeous, but she’s on the wrong side of the law. Except, I can’t stop myself from wanting her despite the law I’ve been sworn to uphold.
She’s naïvely playing a game she can’t possibly win. I need to protect her at all costs, even if it means turning her in and losing her forever.
