For Bryce, the Army was his life. There was no time for romance, relationships, or the drama that came with them.
That all changed when he met her.

Responsibilities that did not include falling for a tattooed bad boy in a military uniform.
Breaking all her own rules, she agreed to one date and the promise of a night of pleasure she’d never forget.
It was only supposed to be one night of unbridled passion between two strangers. But it quickly turned into so much more.
Come Back to Me is an emotional military romance that will tug on your heartstrings and keep you on the edge of your seat.
***This title is a re-release. Same title. Same main characters, a few changes, a brand new series, and a fresh new look.***

Lacey cracked open the paint can and poured the new shade of sea foam green into a pan while grinning over her shoulder at Bryce. “This is really how you want to spend your day?”
“As long as I’m spending it with you.”
“We could be spending it doing other things, but…”
“Hand me a paint brush.” He ignored her comment and went on to trimming in around the window frame, sighing.
She was still holding out on him. Refusing to admit they were more than just friends. He was afraid to admit it, but he may have officially been friend-zoned; that is, if you cuddled in bed and literally slept with friends. A month later, and he couldn’t get her to agree that there was something going on between them.
They’d been spending all their free time together, getting to know each other, falling asleep in each other’s arms. But still, nothing. Shit, case in point, she had somehow recruited him for projects around her house, and he wasn’t even getting sex out of the deal. He was in way over his head with this one.
He may be selfish, but at least he wasn’t sleeping in the barracks every night and dealing with the ridiculous Texas Heat during the day.
He’d tried everything to get through to her, though. Confessed his feelings every chance he got. Maybe that was it? Maybe he was coming on too strong. If he laid low, he feared he’d lose her all together.
“You’re thinking awfully loud over there.” Lacey pulled his attention away from his mind that was running in circles.
The filter between his brain and his mouth had clearly been damaged by paint fumes. “Aren’t you ready to give in yet and admit that there’s more going on here?”
Turning toward him, Lacey batted her lashes. “Whatever do you mean? There’s a lot going on here, Bryce. In case you haven’t noticed, we’re in the middle of a remodel. There’s more than just painting that needs to be done.”
“Tease. You’re a goddamn tease, Lacey.” He dropped his paintbrush and stalked in her direction. Maybe if he gave her just a taste, she would change her mind.
Serving his country is a large part of who Bryce is and everything else comes second. When he meets Lacey, she was supposed to be like the woman who had come before her where they have a little fun and they go their separate ways, but she quickly becomes the exception to the rule.
Lacey has a lot of responsibilities in her life which include being there for the one person who has always been there for her. She knows that she can’t afford to be distracted by a man who isn’t looking for a relationship and will be away far more than he is around, but her heart doesn’t agree.
Bryce and Lacey take us on a heartbreaking and heartwarming journey as life hands them so many challenges as they fight for their love and their future together.
