He’s a stranger.
An unexpected surprise.
A risk I have no choice but to take, thanks to this blizzard.
I shouldn’t want him.
But his touch and his kisses…
They’re the perfect distraction.
Until this passes, anyway.
My instincts said I’d be fine, but I should have listened to my head.
Things that are so easy…so comfortable…so perfect…
Are usually too good to be true.
No matter how potent the rush.
Six years ago, the only girl I ever loved moved away. She said she’d come back to me. She promised she’d write. She swore she’d always be mine, but Evie Harper lied.
Now, Evie’s back, and this time, I’m not letting her go without a fight.
Before senior year, I was forced to move away, leaving behind the only boy I ever loved. He said he’d love me forever. He promised nothing would tear us apart. He swore he’d wait for me, but Jack Nelson lied.
Now, Jack wants to make me his again, but he may never be able to forgive my sins.
The more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that something isn’t right. He may not be able put his finger on what it is, but he’s determined to find out what’s going on with the girl with the haunted eyes.
Tate didn’t anticipate that someone else would be just as determined to keep Hennessy’s nightmare a secret, and he never realizes just how far that person is willing go to keep those skeletons in the closet until it’s too late.
With the very real threat of jail time hanging over his head, Tate leaves without a backwards glance at the town or the girl. The problem is that out-of-sight doesn’t necessarily mean out of mind, and it’s Tate who’s now haunted by his decision and memories of Hennessy.
Hennessy Hanes knows better than anyone that not everything is always as it appears to be. After years of being on the receiving end of her squeaky-clean preacher father’s abuse, she seizes an opportunity to leave it all behind and runs.
Her only regret is that in walking away she loses any chance with the one person who tried to save her.
Fast forward ten years, and they’re both back where they started.
Tate was never a good boy, and it turns out that the man he’s now grown into isn’t all that much better. Anger is a living, breathing part of him, and there’s a court order forcing him to seek help from the one person he’s never forgotten.
Hennessy never thought she’d see Tate Casey again, and certainly not on her couch. But now it’s her turn to save him, and there are rules she must follow as his psychologist, not to mention a court order instructing her to help him manage his anger. If she doesn’t follow those rules, he’ll end up back in jail.
Tate Casey has never been a man who followed the rules, and Hennessy is no longer the straight-laced, timid preacher’s daughter she once was.
His hands may be tied, so it looks like for the first time in Hennessy’s life, she’ll be the one breaking the rules for the chance to finally get what she’s always wanted. Him.
Going into this book, I didn’t really remember a ton about Tate from the previous 2 books so I wasn’t really sure how this would go but I LOVED this book. Tate Casey is amazing!!
Tate Casey’s childhood was less than ideal. His mother didn’t want to be a mom and didn’t know how to be a mom. She wanted to do what she wanted, when she wanted, with whomever she wanted. Regardless of what her children needed. He knew of the pastor’s daughter. He also knew that she was too good for him and too young.
Hennessy Hanes grew up as the pastor’s daughter. With her mother not there, Hennessy grows up an only child in her father’s care. Try as she might, Hennessy never seems to succeed at making her father happy. She knew of the bad boy Tate Casey. She also knew the consequences of getting involved with someone like that.
Imagine the surprise for both when Tate shows up as a patient in Hennessy’s office.
Freshly released from prison, Tate Casey is taking mandatory anger management through Hennessy’s office. Older now but unable to act on the attraction and sexual tension between them, Tate and Hennessy begin getting to know each other again. Both learning things about their lives now and their pasts.
One click now to learn more about Tate and Hennessy! Tate is HOT and alpha and all things amazing and wonderful. Hennessy was a little whimpy for me at first but she definitely got better throughout the book. A must read!!
Hail—well that speaks for itself.
Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child. Persephone, though? Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail? Yeah, that’s just the final f-you.
The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete.
Or so he thinks.
What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask? Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival. Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain.
Dante’s a bad person. He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds. Karma is finally catching up to him.
This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation. This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives.
He doesn’t want this child.
But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not.
With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life. But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind. Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he’s suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.
