He’s a master at red-hot ecstasy.
But when Riley learns that someone is stalking her, he races to her side. Determined to not only protect her, but to convince her that—no matter what has hurt her in the past—he’s not only going to fight for her, he’s going to win her heart. Forever.
Instead of a peaceful vacation, however, what I find in Ketchikan is trouble. The kind of trouble that’s six-plus feet of nerdy hotness I can't resist. I mean, who could? He's a genius with no idea how attractive he is, an enigma of contradictions: awkward yet confident, fascinating and flirtatious, yet aloof and evasive of physical touch.
He's utterly and deliciously sexy in every way—and oh, so innocent.

I can recite all of The Iliad and The Odyssey in the original Greek. I can do advanced mathematics in my head and memorize entire books with ease. By the time I graduated high school I had been scouted by several international soccer teams and recruited by think tanks, the NSA, and the CIA.
All of which is totally useless when a woman like Harlow Grace is standing in front of me, trying to talk to me, flirting with me, touching me. She’s Helen of Troy—a woman with a face that could launch a thousand ships, a woman wars are fought over.
It turns out she’s not just beautiful—she’s famous. A Hollywood sex symbol. A superstar known all over the world…
And yet somehow she’s interested in me?
Lies are what destroy marriages or even just hiding the truth.
I love my husband more than anything and that’s what hurts the most.
I thought he lied.
I thought he’d cheated and so I kicked him out.
I said goodbye to the one man I ever loved even while he begged me to trust him. The hardest part is throwing away true love.
And that’s what we had.
With secrets I couldn’t have possibly imagined, I was torn between what’s right and what was right for us.
But let me start at the beginning.
Back to when I knew nothing but how deeply we loved each other yet how damaged our marriage had become.
“In my reading life, I have come across books that have touched my soul. I have read books that have made me breathless. I have read books that took a piece of me and left on the pages of the book. Damaged is one of them. What an emotionally driven book. What a soulful and heart entrancing piece of literature that consumed and crippled me. I was reading a book utterly heart-breakingly beautiful... I was reading a book so captivating with a moving storyline that almost damaged me.” - Tanaka K
