Jack-In my world as a cop, things were either black or white. Right or wrong. Then Bailey arrived, challenging all my principals. She had a mouth on her, the level of sass matching the exaggerated swing of her hips. I couldn't get her out of my head, even knowing she wasn't right for me. Something didn't add up though, and I would figure it out even if it ultimately meant we couldn't be together.
Bailey-The only thing sexier than his dimple was the set of handcuffs the hottie detective threatened to use on me. If only he'd give me a chance to show him I was more than the tough-girl exterior I'd carefully crafted over the years. Oh yeah, and if I wasn't engaged in criminal activity that would land me in handcuffs...and not in a sexy way.
I had a nightmare of a childhood surviving the abuse of my father. Though I’ve moved away, his voice still plays in my head, making me doubt myself in everything I do.
Through it all I’ve had one goal: to become a professional beach volleyball player and prove my father wrong.
And it was going so well until I met Dean, a gorgeous lifeguard determined to save me from myself. He’s opening my eyes and shifting my focus, when all I want to do is stay where I am, despite the suffocating silence of my empty apartment.
When everything I thought I knew about my past changes, can I handle loving Dean while still achieving my pro career? Or will I lose it all when my father reappears in my life?
After the devastating loss of my parents when I was in college, I vowed to focus all my energy on fulfilling my promise to my mom: to open up the hot chocolate store we’d always dreamed of running together.
No distractions. My plans are set.
But things heat up faster than I can handle when a bronzed lifeguard pursues me in the most delicious of ways. Mix in a stalker determined to throw me off my game, and a comical, ass-kicking Beach Squad...well, then you have a situation that requires a level of bravery I don’t know if I possess.
I may appear to be a damsel in distress, but I can save my own damn self, thank you very much. And I might just keep that hottie lifeguard as the whipped cream on top of my sweet dreams.
