Rule #1: Do not fall for your brother’s best friend.
Rule # 2: Absolutely do not fall for your brother’s best friend.
Rule # 3: Don’t break the rules.
Jackson Stone is hot—like burn-down-buildings kind of hot. He’s also my brother’s best friend, and the memory of one kiss with him years ago still might get to me. Maybe. But, I am not looking for a second chance.
When I return to the small town of Stolen Hearts Valley, my life is a hot mess. I’m a few bucks shy of broke with nowhere else to go. My heart’s battered and bruised, and when it comes to romance, the door is nailed shut.
But Jackson’s the kind of man women ruin panties over. Oh, and he's my roommate. Talk about too close for comfort.
When I’m at my most vulnerable, he pulls that whole knight-in-shining-armor thing. What can I say? He’s d*mn near impossible to resist.
Shay Martin is my best friend’s little sister. And she’s so hot she nearly sets me on fire.
She’s a walking complication, and I don’t do complications. But I can’t seem to stay away from her. It doesn't help that her bedroom is across the hall from mine.
Every look, every kiss, every touch nearly brings me to my knees. I can’t keep my balance, much less think. Before I know it, I’ll do anything for her. Complications be d*mned.
Jackson & Shay's story is perfect for readers who love small town romance, military alpha heroes, smart sassy heroines, friends to lovers, second chances, slow burn, emotional romance with a dash of angst, plenty of swoon, and a deeply protective broody hero.
*A full-length standalone romance.
