Then she stole his heart.
It was too tempting to pass up.
A suitcase full of cash. A new identity already burning a hole in my wallet.
So I did it. I took the money and ran.
I had no idea the money belonged to a king of the Las Vegas underworld.
And I definitely wasn’t prepared for what he would do to get it back.
I knew I shouldn’t have let a drug addict ex-grunt pick up that suitcase, even if he was my best friend.
I should never have agreed to be the one to get the suitcase back.
Then I wouldn’t have met Izzy Lake and fallen for her bad fake accent, her beauty, and her raw vulnerability.
If I don’t get that suitcase back in eight days, I’ll be spending the rest of my life behind bars.
I need that suitcase. But I need her more.
Five years, six months, eight days….
It’s been eighteen years since Abigail was born with a hole in her heart. Five years since she collapsed on the soccer field. Five years, six months, eight days since she found out she was adopted.
Abby has spent five years wondering about the family she never knew and waiting for her eighteenth birthday. When Abby shows up on the doorstep of Chris and Claire Knight, her birth parents are overjoyed to see the little girl they lost eighteen years ago.
One summer is all they have to make up for the years they lost. But when opposing ideals collide, a summer of love soon turns into a summer of heartache.
