When I came back to Sin Valley, the mission was simple—avoid the ex-girlfriend who broke my heart. At all costs.
Too bad I just (accidentally) moved in next door to her. And her battery-operated boyfriend(s). Plural.
No matter how hard I try to steer clear of Desiree Grant, fate keeps tossing us together.
And, so far? It’s not going too well for me.
When our eyes lock across the crowded bar, I get all tongue-tied and make a damn fool of myself.
Next, we end up trapped in an elevator alone and my protector instincts switch on at the speed of light.
Then, a pink, glittery, vibrating package with her name on it shows up in my mailbox and—poof!— there goes my master plan to resist her.
Okay. Change of plans.
Now, I’ve got a new mission in mind—reminding my gorgeous ex-girlfriend that her battery-operated playthings could never compare to me.
Y’see, the truth is, I never stopped thinking about her. Never stopped wanting her. Never stopped loving her.
But things are different now.
She’s a single mother with a demanding career and a little boy she’s raising on her own.
I’m a former military man, struggling to find my place in the civilian world.
The life I’m trying to build is a threat to the life she’s fighting to protect.
But I’d go to war for a second chance with the girl who was always supposed to be mine. This time, I’m determined to give her the happy-ever-after she deserves.
Now, the only question is, how do I get her to play along?
Pfft…And I thought this would be simple.
