Release Date: April 14
Ares saw him for the first time at a Kilgore Police Department benefit dinner. She’d gone with her dad as his plus one. Hayes Greer had gone by himself and brooded silently across the same table as her, drinking whiskey and not saying a word.
It only took that one time for her to become interested.
The next time she saw him, he was doing another benefit—but this one requiring a whole lot fewer clothes. And that was when she knew. She wanted him. Badly. But the morose Hayes was too busy
thinking about his sins to see what was right in front of his face—Ares.
Hayes Greer knew the moment that he saw the feisty Ares Downy again that he should’ve stayed away. Maybe if he hadn’t done the stupid calendar, he wouldn’t be questioning every single woman’s intentions.
Maybe if he’d listened to that niggling feeling telling him to stay away, he would’ve been able to do his job a little better. But seeing her with a knife to her throat, in the middle of a building set to blow, made his usually well-wired brain start to malfunction.
Because nobody was allowed to touch her like that—only him. Nobody was allowed to scare her, either. Not and live to tell the tale.

When the secretive, sexy and handsome SWAT agent Hayes met the feisty, beautiful and funny Ares, it was already intense.
These two had such natural and smoking chemistry that made me root for them since the beginning.
Ares was struggling with life and love, a woman with such a big heart and caring for the kids at school and her family. Hayes wanted to be left alone, struggling as well from his past, not feeling worthy of anyone.
Still, these two were the perfect match! She was blunt, fighting in what she believed, and somehow seeing right through Hayes’ pain and suffering.
It was sweet, funny and more emotional than the previous one.
The main characters and their friends were easy to fall in love with, this loud bunch of friends who grew up together. I can’t wait to read more about them.
