Hard-edged rocker Graham Allen has it all. He’s flush with cash from playing bass in a band by night and restoring classic cars by day. And there are plenty of women willing to share his bed for a night, complication-free. Perfect, because if there’s anything he learned from his past, it was to never get attached—to anything. So when bartender Carly Sullivan flashes her innocent smile, Graham isn’t prepared for what happens next.
Never fall in love
Two rules, that’s all Graham has—never apologize and never fall in love. He knows Carly is everything he should avoid. Cheerful and sweet, she has “relationship” written all over her. But Graham can’t stay away from her probing questions and concerned blue eyes.
When Graham discovers Carly is hiding a crushing secret, he’s prepared to risk it all. Until in one single moment, everything changes and Graham’s past threatens to collide with his future. His life is crumbling down around him, and soon no apology in the world can save him.
He should’ve known to walk away.
“Set aside a few hours to read this one straight through, because once Graham crawls under your skin, he’s going to stay there till the very last page. He’s edgy, dirty — and so hot. Graham’s tension practically vibrates off the page as he considers changing his ways. His methods of self-destruction are emotional, wicked and truthful. Carly’s story is equally painful, and at times these two seriously crush your heart as they try to learn what it means to trust and set the past free.
Graham Allen restores cars and is the moody bass player in a local band, using women for no-strings sex and taking the edge off with the occasional random fight or a fast ride on his Ducati. He doesn’t let anyone get close. Carly, the pretty bartender at Graham’s neighborhood haunt, makes him want to change his own rules. Except she has her own heavy baggage, putting her completely off limits. Everything changes when they decide to take a chance on being friends, and slowly Graham realizes that he doesn’t have to let the past control him any longer — until he makes a startling discovery.”
