“I’m glad you came tonight.”
She dropped her head shyly as her teeth made another appearance, raking over her bottom lip. “Me too. I missed you,” she said quietly. Almost sadly. Did she think they weren’t going to see each other again?
“Hey,” he said, grasping her chin between his fingers and lifting her face to his, commanding her to look at him. “This isn’t goodbye, if that’s what you’re thinking.”
Eyebrows a shade lighter than her mahogany hair drew together. “It’s not?”A grin spreading across his face, Jami shook his head. “Not unless you want it to be.”
From the wrong side of the tracks...
Alyson Blake had learned early on that the only one she could depend on was herself. The only light in her life was a boy whom everyone agreed was destined for prison; but with his first kiss, he had set her soul on fire. Since the day the police dragged him away in handcuffs, she had managed to lead a quiet life, but when she attends an event fraught with mayhem, trouble resurfaces.
The one person she can’t forget...
Jamison Weston is the kind of guy dads load their shotguns for; endowed with a hot temper and a rap sheet as long as both tattooed arms. Known as “The Judge,” Jami’s hot temper, lethal fists, and cocky attitude have earned him respect and admiration both in and out of the ring. But just when he thinks he’s pummeled his past to death, Alyson Blake reenters his life.
Two paths collide…
After years of separation, Alyson is eager to reexplore the man who’s never left her thoughts, but for Jamison, she’s an unwelcome distraction. Despite his resistance, Alyson is determined to have him. Yet, when she discovers the disturbing secret to his success as a fighter, will she accept the truth, or will it tear them apart for good?
