Amanda Southerland has a job she loves and a solid relationship with a man who looks great on paper. If it all feels a little hollow, so what? She’s got nothing to complain about. Her life is running like clockwork. That is until she slides down the side of a mountain and crashes into the cocky gym rat who’s exactly the kind of guy she avoids. He’s all muscle, no finesse, and if she can’t stop thinking about him, it’s just because he irritates her. Nothing more.
He saved me… Brody Chandler. At a time when I was at my lowest, and cared far less about myself than anyone else possibly could. But I can’t tell him everything and I have a feeling he’s doing the same behind that semi-truck’s wheel. Who is this big, strong guy taking me away, and could I ever fathom a world in which he’s with me?
The closest I ever wanted to get to him was several rows away in English class. We’d never spoken, but of course I heard the stories about his family. I know they’re dangerous. I know he’s dangerous. Vince never had a reason to notice me, anyway—until I inadvertently witnessed his first mob hit.
