Sometimes it takes years to realize a mistake. But only a night to find a way back into your lover's heart.
Kyle Sander is an expert at starting over. At eighteen, he had his whole life planned out—get married, have kids, grow old with his high school sweetheart. His plans came screeching to a halt the day Ronnie Axel skipped town without a goodbye.
A decade later...his first love is back. But when revenge sex turns into the second chance he never expected, Kyle's goal is set. He wants his perfect life and the woman he could never replace.
The years apart didn’t fix their issues, though. Ronnie’s obligation to the family business threatens to tear them apart a second time. But it’s the family scandal involving her that might make their separation not only permanent, but…deadly.

He brushed a finger over her bruised skin. “Come on, doll. Talk to me.”
She grinned. “I always loved that nickname, you know.”
He matched her smile, couldn’t help it. “And you’re changing the subject.”
“Armed robbery, like I said. I really don’t want to talk about it.”
