Eve Bryant finds herself moving across the country with only one goal- rediscover herself and get her life back on track…
Leaving a disastrous marriage, she swears off men and relationships, but when she meets sexy, charismatic Grant Mitchell, her new rules fly right out the window.
Grant is a born and bred businessman, and he always gets what he wants…
The moment he lays eyes on Eve, Grant is determined she will be his. She’s different from other women he knows- too stiff, too prim- but her smile pierces his heart, and he longs to see what she’s like when she lets her hair down. They discover a powerful and undeniable connection, leading to a fast moving relationship that leaves Eve whirling in its wake.
The odds are stacked against them, and trust is hard to come by.
A woman scorned, a troubled ex-husband, and a mother bent on orchestrating her son’s future to suit her own agenda make for a very rocky road. The new couple may not last, not matter how strong their for each other are. Grant is willing to fight to keep Eve in his live, but after recent events, Eve isn’t sure she has any fight left to give.
Will outside forces drive Eve and Grant apart? Or will they learn there’s no love greater than the one you fight the hardest to keep?
His lips met mine, and I instantly melted into him. I felt the tension and anger leave my body. When he pulled away he added, “I don’t want to think about you with another man. I don’t want you to have to go back and deal with your ex, so yeah Eve, I’m dealing with this or trying to anyway.”
I didn’t know what to say. He was dealing with the fact that he felt possessive, and while I should have thought it was crazy that he had such strong feelings about me already, I couldn’t, because I felt the same way. Instead of thinking too much or really thinking at all, I responded wordlessly pulled Grant back down on top of me. My hands slid down his back and found their way under his clothes to feel the heat of his skin.
“Please tell me you’re mine, Eve. I can’t do this any other way.” His expression was pained, and I knew I would rather see those green eyes everyday for as long as I had him than ever see that hurt expression on his face again.

Praise from previous reviews:
“With Eve's fire and Grant's cocky determination, this was a fast, fun, believable read. I don't generally go for the alpha males even if saying so does place me in a significant minority, but, in this book, Grant was perfect. I wouldn't mind meeting or dating an alpha male like him any day!”

“This story made remember why I love to read romance!”
-Jennifer Jura, Reader
“I just spent all day reading this book for the second time. I loved it even more the second time around. The characters are well developed and pull you right in. Eve and Grant's story sizzles and I can't wait for the next book in the series!”
