My name is Eduardo Rosas, but for as long as I can remember, everybody’s called me “Trouble.” Back in prison, I used to dream about running away from my family’s gang, East Side Hollenbeck, and finally getting my life together. But I’ve been out for six months now and I keep screwing up. No job, no prospects—except for this idea my older brother, Salvador, has to open a craft brewery in the hood. Crazy, right? Está loco.
As much as I want to help him out, I can’t stay focused. My biggest distraction? Carmen Centeno, a girl from the neighborhood. She’s a chef—smart, tough, and sexy as hell. Way classier than me. So to get her back in my bed, I have to convince her I’m not the trash everybody says I am.
The pressure’s rising. Carmen deserves a man she can depend on. And when the ghosts of my past rise up, I’ll have to outsmart them—or lose my shot at a future with the only woman who believes in me.
The Rosas brothers will return in Tanked!
