New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter shines in this Original Heartbreakers tale, featuring a man haunted by memories and the vulnerable girl he will do anything to protect.
Tortured by a violent past, ex-con Jase Hollister is looking to start over in a small town. The rugged bachelor suffering from PTSD longs for peace and quiet, always keeping his women at a distance—and his heart encased in stone.
Brook Lynn Dillon is a down on her luck waitress determined to avoid the man every woman in town wants—including her sister. The last thing she needs is his kind of trouble. But his every glance makes her burn…and her resistance is melting fast.
The two agree to a one-time fling, not expecting to be forever branded. Now, no matter how hard they try, they can't keep their hands off each other. But when a secret from Jase's past comes to light, they'll have to face a cold, hard truth: it's more than Jase's freedom on the line, it's their hearts.
"Showalter writes fun, sexy characters you fall in love with!" —Lori Foster, New York Times bestselling author

Tender and Sexy with Sassy leading lady.
This is the second story in this series and a full length novel. I loved it. The heroine has a disability and the hero has issues but they overcome all this and so much more.
Gena Showalter is a fabulous writer. She builds a small town that make you want to live there. The characters are multidimensional with real problems. She added a little mystery to keep it all moving. Totally awesome.
She's done it again! :-)
I read The One You Want and didn't like it quite as much as this book. The style of this book feels closer to the style of The Lords Of The Underworld which is one of my two all time favorite series. This book had love and challenges and insecurities and everything I love about Gena Showalter's writing. I like the paranormal aspect of TLOTU series more than this one but this is also turning out to be amazing!! You can't go wrong with this author!!!
Great book and read.
I am new to this author and all I have to say is she has me hook line and sinker. I can not wait for the next book. This series rocked. This book is about Jase but you fall for each character. As of right now though. Jase is my favorite. But we will see when the others get their books. This is a must read series. One you can't put down. Love it.
