It's a hot summer morning and I'm already running late.
I'm no one's white knight, but when I see a girl in trouble, I have to help.
I didn't know it would be Aubrey Dorado, the girl I swore was off-limits.
Now she's under my skin and I can't get her out of my head.
So, I did the worst thing possible and hired her to work in my gym.
Lusting after my new employee breaks my number one rule.
But each day she tempts me with her sweet personality, curvy body, and clever mind.
I've been burned by love before. Romance is a risk I can't afford.
But how much longer can I resist the attraction simmering between us?

When Aidan returns home from Iraq, he’s haunted by all he has lost. The enemy broke his body, destroying his dreams of a career in music. Worse still, he lost Lexi and Lucas. That damage he’d done all by himself. While he can’t restore what combat took from him, he’s determined to reclaim the two loves of his life.
Lucas Cameron is a changed man. After connecting with his brother, he found the discipline to get his life on track. His legal career is flourishing, but his love life is a train wreck. The woman he loves is spiraling out of control. After Aidan abandoned them, Lucas and Lexi clung together but no matter how hard he tries, Lucas can’t find a way to heal the wounds that Lexi carries.
Lexi Moore feels like a jigsaw puzzle with too many missing pieces. Losing Aidan was hard, but the true reason for her shattered spirit is a secret she only shares with her beloved Lucas. She knows she is drowning and the time has come to heal, but the holes in her heart hold her back from moving on. Shedding the burden she carries is her only hope for a happy future, but she fears she will never have the strength to reveal her secret.
When Aidan walks back into their lives, Lucas and Lexi know everything is about to change. But as they fight to reconcile their past and reclaim what they lost, a vicious predator stalks Lexi. In order to stop the killer, all three must confront the secrets they’ve carried…before they’re buried by them.
Tough prosecutor Callie Hunter left the small town and never planned to return, but an unexpected inheritance requires her to return to the scene of her life's greatest heartache.
When she encounters the town's golden boy who once owned her young heart—only to learn he's fresh out of prison. All David Langley wants is to be left alone to scrape together a life unrecognizable to the boy who once carried the town's dreams on his shoulders.
Until he let Callie Hunter derail him.
The draw between them is still there, but having her see how far he's fallen is unbearable. The more she's with him, however, the more she knows that who he was didn't change. There has to be more to the story.
But second chances don't happen for convicted murderers, and when old enemies conspire to send him back into the hell he barely survived, the only one who can help him is Callie.
The last person on earth he's willing to ask for anything.
