When my brother Evan disappeared on the streets of Oakland I looked for weeks. Broke and alone, my search put me on the Lozano crime family’s radar; a virtual death sentence. That’s when they showed up: three tattooed, muscle-bound saviors, arriving at my darkest hour. Protecting me wasn’t their intention, but it became their shared goal. But these men aren’t just military, they’re ex-special forces. Mercenaries are for hire, paid to do the impossible jobs that no one else can. Together they’ve sworn to see me through, but when my troubles become their troubles things get sticky… in more ways than one. Can a lonely, desperate waitress find love with three sizzling soldiers of fortune? Or will forces beyond anyone’s control tear everything apart?
