Ex-Marine. Ex-Wife. Ex-hausted. I left my brothers in the Marines to start a family. I left my ex-wife when that family drove her to drink and drugs. Now all I have left is my son—and he's all I care about. I can't afford to make another mistake. And the girl who moved in next door? Mistake written all over her. She's got the sweetest smile, the hottest damn curves and behind it all . . . a haunted look. I can't take my damn eyes off her. My powerful body and coarse attitude make her nervous—and as she tries to start a new life away from her abusive ex, she has her own reasons to stay away. But we can't help it. We're f*cking drawn to each other. And when she tells me how much she wants a baby . . . I make every mistake in the book. Because I want a family again. I want her. My son. And a baby. And when her past comes calling . . . I'll fight to hell and back to keep it. Contains mature themes.
