He was the bad boy she didn’t need.
She was the exception to his rules.
When Jada Stanley and Cane Alexander met, it was lust at first site. As much as they fought it, it became so much more.
Now that they’ve stopped fighting it and made their own rules, a little respite is needed. Las Vegas is the destination of choice.
Despite what they say, not everything that happens in Vegas stays there.
Jada Stanley is starting over–freeing herself from her past and all her mistakes. Following the rules she’s given herself is easy enough, until she meets HIM. He’s gorgeous, cocky, and everything she needs to avoid, but that’s easier said than done.
Cane Alexander has his own set of rules, a plan to keep his life simple and free of complications. But Jada is a temptation he can’t resist.
As their lives entwine, they realize one thing about rules… There is always an exception.
There is no greater burden than a secret, and Kari Stanley has been carrying one alone for a long time. But fate intervenes in the form of a broken down car and the kind offer of assistance from a handsome stranger with a sweet, southern drawl. In exchange, all she has to do is go to dinner with him. Temptation was never so sweet.
Max Quinn has secrets of his own. His good deeds aren’t just a product of his southern upbringing; they’re his atonement. As one dinner turns into two, he realizes that Kari just might be his salvation.
As they struggle to find their path together, their secrets weigh heavier on them. Will they be able to trust one another with the truth, or will their secrets keep them apart forever?
This book is the follow-up to The Exception. Both can be read as stand-alone novels.

But when tragedy strikes a second time, Crew just might be my only hope.
My life changed forever the night my brother died.

When another disaster hits, I’m given the opportunity to make things right. I’m taking it. I’m willing to sacrifice it all.
