~ SYNOPSIS ~
Have you ever wished for a moment that you could pretend to live the life of someone else? Escape the harsh reality that your own is anything but perfect?
Quinn had always been forced to put her own needs last. With an absent father and a mother who drowns herself daily in a bottle of Rum, there was no other option.
Jett was the distraction she needed, even if it was just for one night. A void filler, a chance for a freeing moment to allow herself to feel something other than emptiness.
He wasn’t what she expected…
Her life didn’t have room for a man like Jett.
But now it was too late, there was no turning back.
Nothing would ever be the same.

It’d been two days. Two days of unanswered calls, unanswered texts. Two days of driving by her house day and night, only to find it empty. I spoke with her boss at Spencer’s, and he too said she had taken some time off.
With each day my heart sank a little more with the thought that I had thrown away the best thing that had ever happened to me. This was on me, completely. I acted like the biggest dick when I should have just talked to her.
“Hey, numb nuts, you still pouting?” Kade shouted as he exited the French doors onto the back patio.
“I need to change my locks,” I grumbled. Resting my head back against the chair, I closed my eyes, attempting to block him out.
“Don’t blame me for your massive amount of shit. I’m just here for the pool—oh, and the free beer.” He chuckled as he pulled his shirt up and over his head, then took off and jumped, cannonballing into the pool.
“Whew,” he yelled out just before hitting the water. The cool splash flowed backward, drenching the entire patio. All I could do was shake my head at the ass. He was doing everything possible to pull me from my slump. I picked up my phone and checked once again for any response only to come up empty.
“Give the girl some time. I know it’s driving you crazy, not being able to fix this, but you need to try to give her some space.”
Kade climbed out of the pool, shaking his hair, once again spraying water in every direction. Cocky son of a bitch chuckled as I jumped from my chair and stepped back.

Jett has no time for anything that doesn't involve his restaurant, a relationship is the last thing on his mind until he sees the woman with the chocolate eyes.
Quinn has even less time for a relationship than Jett, there is just too much going on and she can't deal with a guy chasing her. But what happens when he won't give up and your own body turns traitor against you?
Jett is strong and sure, when he wants something he goes after it not letting anything get in his way. But he also knows when to sit back and wait for things to happen. He's a sweetie and Alpha male all rolled into one hot package.
Quinn has had it rough and it has skewered her perception of life. She has however done the best she can with what she was given. Trusting may not come easy, but she has been burned too many times. When things start to change for the better in her life though will she accept it?
These two have their share of problems, but I love seeing their journey as they learn about each other and trusting each other. We saw Jett in the last book of the Southern boys series and seeing his story unfold, I can't wait to see more of this new series!
