He’s everything she’s never had. She’s everything he didn’t know he needed.
Having lost her parents at a young age, raised by her beloved uncle, Michele King is now a successful business owner, providing meals for people by day and getting lost in books each night. A somewhat lonely life…which she attempts to remedy by dating a man she met online. It only takes a few dates before she sees red flags. Breaking things off with a man she barely knows should be easy. But he’s not taking no for an answer.
Declan James moved to small-town Lindeman, Washington, to be near his former Delta Force teammates, men he considers his brothers. His focus should be on their new business, Mercy Ring, a boxing club specializing in giving locals—especially kids—a safe place to exorcise their anger and aggression. But instead, he finds his mind stuck on a certain shy local. Quiet and reserved, Michele is the polar opposite of the women he’s dated. And he can’t get her out of his head.
He's happy to get to know Michele at her own slow pace…until danger rears its head in the form of an angry ex. Now, Declan has no choice but to stay close, if he doesn’t want their fledgling relationship to end before it’s barely begun.
