Callie Jacobsen isn't about to open her heart to just anyone. Not so very long ago, trusting someone changed her life forever—and not in a fun way. Now she's better off focusing on her career, her friends, and her dog. So when former Marine Everett Silverton takes an interest in her, Callie's more than a little wary. No matter how charming he is, men are a bad idea. In fact, she's got the scars to prove it.
But Everett isn't convinced Callie should shut everyone out—especially not him. He may be a hero to the people of Rock Canyon, but he's got his own demons, and he bets they're not that different from Callie's. Still, he knows it's going to take more than chemistry to get her to let her guard down. Everett will do whatever it takes to show her she's safe with him. All she has to do is take a chance, take a step … and take his hand.
They can’t spend their whole lives running from love…
I can't get hurt again. I fell in love once a long time ago, and I almost didn't survive it. I'm not sure I can go through that again, but every time Colton walks into this bar, I feel myself giving into him a little bit more. I've worked so hard to make my life safe. To never do anything I might someday regret.
But when it comes to Colton, I'm not sure how much longer I can resist him.
I'm the life of the party. The guy you come to when you want to have a good time, no strings attached. But what if I want more? Jo is the most beautiful, most complicated woman I've ever met in my life. She's also my boss. And no matter how hard I try to break through the walls she's built around herself, she keeps putting them right back up.
I'm determined to get to know the real Jo, and while I'm not giving up any time soon, I only hope I can be the man she needs me to be when the time comes.
Jo hides from everyone and everything, terrified of getting hurt again. Colton is an open book, scared of never finding the one connection that will be strong enough to last. When tragedy strikes and they are both left reeling in its wake, will they learn to lean on each other? Or will the fear of regret push them apart forever?

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.
Environmental issues, civil rights, education—you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail for a few hours, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and not at all her type, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.
Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before—fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.
Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.
