“What the f*ck have I done?” aren’t the first words you want to hear after a one-night stand.
Yet that’s what he gave me.
Dallas Barnes is tall, dark, and handsome.
He’s also scarred, rough, and broken down by burdens.
A single dad. A widower. A lost soul.
We found each other in the back of a dark pub.
He brought the whiskey.
I brought the bad decisions.
He called it a mistake.
I vowed never to speak to him again.
That vow is broken with one test.
Two pink lines have turned my life upside down.
One night can change everything.
Every day, I tell him to f*ck off.
Kyle Lane is the town’s hottest cop.
He’s also the man I’ve despised since high school.
Each morning, he stands on his porch with an annoying smirk on his perfect face.
He’s made it his life’s mission to get under my skin.
Until one day, he’s no longer on his porch but on mine.
He claims he wants to redeem himself for ruining my reputation.
My instincts tell me to stay away, but with each morning he shows up, it becomes harder and harder to resist his charm.
I was never supposed to fall in love with my neighbor and once he finds out my secret, we’ll forever be enemies.
(An enemies to lover romance.)
The only thing worse than a messy breakup, is a very public messy breakup.
After the fallout I made myself a promise— no more dating.
The moment my new bodyguard walks through the door, I know I’m going to break that vow.
Hudson is nothing like the men in the industry.
He's rugged and real. Too bad he doesn't want to spend a second longer with me than he has to. I’m just a job to him.
But he could be my everything.
I want nothing to do with the Hollywood limelight. I’ve survived enough without having my face plastered on gossip magazines.
It’s no way to live. But as long as I’m standing beside her, it’s my life. For now.
This job is temporary, a favor to my brother.
But longer we’re forced to be together, the harder it becomes to fight my feelings for Stella. The real her. Not the person the rest of the world sees.
When she makes me an offer to be with her— no strings, how can I say no?
**NOTE: Just Her Bodyguard was previously titled as Make Me Yours.
Running into your ex while he’s arresting you is humiliating.
Running into an ex you haven’t seen in nearly a decade is never a good time.
Running into your ex while he’s arresting you is humiliating.
The handcuffs close around my fists at the same time he promises to hate me until he takes his last breath.
I can’t blame him. He pleaded for me not to walk away.
He doesn’t know leaving him broke my heart as much as it did his.
It wasn’t for me. Rather, it was for someone else.
I skipped town after Hurricane Lauren obliterated my heart.
Coming home was a hard choice to make. Arresting her isn’t.
She has no idea of the demons I carry with me now. No idea that I’m a new man.
Two women ruined me.
One I gave my heart to.
The other punished me for it.
I sneak into his bar underage.
He kicks me out.
Maliki Bridges is the town's hottest bar owner.
He thinks I'm the mayor's troublesome daughter.
I think he has a stick up his a**.
Once I turn twenty-one, we become friends.
Nothing more ...
Until my world is turned upside down, and he offers me his guest bedroom.
It's a bad idea, moving in with him, but any opportunity I get to be around him I'll take.
Consequences be damned.
Becoming roommates is the riskiest game we've ever played.
Little did I know when Rex came to my locker attempting to bribe me, that he’d turn into my everything.
We’d become best friends. I’d steal his heart. He’d steal mine.
Nothing has changed in the years of our friendship.
Not our connection, not our feelings, or that we still hold each other’s hearts.
But his heart isn’t the only thing I’ve kept.
The secret I’m hiding could shatter the only man I’ve ever loved.
I’ve loved Carolina since the day she called my bluff.
Our friendship always came first.
She believed in me when no one else did.
I tucked away my feelings because I couldn’t survive a life without her.
We crossed the line once, and I swore it’d never happen again.
As time passes, the harder it becomes to live up to that promise.
Until finally, there’s no holding back.
Our hometown’s playboy. My brother’s best friend. The man I love.
He doesn’t do girlfriends. He doesn’t do commitments.
And he doesn’t see me as anything more than his best friend’s little sister.
Until one night changes everything.
A drunken kiss leads to a drunken screw.
Now he can’t keep his hands off of me, and I can’t say no.
Rules are set: No one can find out. It can’t lead anywhere.
But rules were always meant to be broken.
And that’s exactly what we are doing. Breaking them all.
Something bad is bound to happen.
