She aches to make her own music…but I burn for the perfect revenge.
I never thought a late-night Scrabble game would blow my world apart. Moving letters. Keeping score. Swapping words and desire with a mystery woman who makes me fantasize of things I have no right thinking.
I can’t get involved.
Despite the pull of her lush curves and the electric crackle of chemistry between us, I resist. Regan has aroused something far more desirable than revenge, and I can’t get sidetracked by my pesky feelings. Not now that my plot to pay back my best friend’s heartbreaking betrayal finally snaps into place, and I vowed years ago to see it to the bitter end.
And that means no emotional entanglements. Even for her.
Until a vindictive smear campaign aimed at Regan is followed by a bombshell that blows my world apart…and our fragile relationship crumbles.
Unless we both go all in and trust each other, we won’t be able to pick up the pieces.
We can't afford to indulge in this attraction, but our connection burns too brightly to ignore.
My husband was the second man who betrayed my trust when he left me alone to raise my daughter. Asher was the first. I found solace from both in my novels, writing about the hero I'd lost. But in those bestselling books, Asher-I mean my hero-didn't shatter my heart the way he had in real life.
There were so many things I couldn't say to Dahlia when she was seventeen. But I've never forgotten the only girl I ever loved. My voice and song-writing talent made me star. Fame extracted its price. Now I have another chance-the chance to restore her faith in love. The chance to find it for myself.
I'm not letting Dahlia go now that I have her in my arms again.

I’m impatient and inexperienced.

And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.
