I’ve never been good at taking what I want …
I have a long history of making life choices solely on what my rich extended family expects of me. I am trying to change, though. I’m ready for a fresh start, a new career, and a love life that involves fewer trust funds and pedigrees. I want someone real. Someone not afraid to get his hands dirty. Someone maybe even a little bad.
And my surly, grumpy neighbor? He has bad boy written all over him. Which makes me want to be all over him.
I’ve never been good at doing the right thing …
I’m not a good man. I’ve been a sniper my entire adult life. My moral compass lost its true north a long time ago. I’m surprised to find myself attracted to my new neighbor. She’s gorgeous and sexy and has curves for days. I’m too old for her, too jaded, and I have too much blood on my hands. But for the first time in my life, I wonder if I could change.
When a mistaken identity puts her in danger, I’ll move heaven and earth to keep her safe. Even if it means showing her who I really am.
