In a quest to forget my ex left me to marry a man, I turned to a few flings. Okay, more than a few, but I dare anyone to judge me after the life I’ve endured. Then, a one-night stand gets a little blurry in the emotions department. He’s muscular, smooth-talking, and the chemistry is so hot that thinking about him makes me a buzz. The catch is he can only commit to a one-month fling. It’s so good, I agree, but it’s obvious there’s something between us that can’t be ignored. His secrets are deep, and I don’t want to get burned again yet, walking away is impossible.
I spend one month on duty guarding my Principal, and one month off letting loose. That’s my schedule, and I’m okay with it until I meet her. The night we meet is a little fuzzy, but our connection is not. When I wake up in the morning and discover my life-altering one-night stand is my Principal’s best friend, I know I’m doomed, but I make excuses to keep Auden for as long as I can. That is until both their lives are in danger and I can only save one.
My duty and honor, or the woman who I’ve fallen mercilessly for?
Always protect the heartbeat.
First off, let me start by saying oh my gosh!! This book was a roller coaster of emotions. From the beginning of the book, I was 100% hooked and wanting to know who, what and why! I absolutely love Beck and how he became a charge man and how he and Auden meet in the bar and she’s dressed like a grandma because her friends didn’t want to be hit on at a freaking bachelorette party. It made me mad with how little she thought of herself. She viewed herself as broken, because of her ex ghosting her and becoming gay. I do love that she and Beck end up back together after he broke Auden’s heart. They both deserved happiness and then some.
