You’ve always been mine to love and to hate…
Small towns have a way of making you face your past.
And there’s two sides to every story.
Hawk and Brittney met as kids in a time when they both needed someone.
Their worlds were already in a state of unrest when an unexpected betrayal stripped them bare.
Words of hate were uttered and promises broken, leaving them bitter enemies.
One is left fighting for the truth, while the other is left with nothing but a dream.
But time and distance can’t separate them forever and fate seemingly intervenes.
Lines blur as they realize things may not have been what they seemed, and old feelings are resurrected.
But amid salvaging their connection comes another fight.
Hawk’s murky past catches up to him and Brittney is thrust in the middle, leaving him no choice but to fight once more to save the girl he realizes he’s always loved.
Even if it means destroying her dreams and wrecking her heart.
Fighting for her is the only thing that matters, and this is one battle he won’t lose.
Winner takes heart.

★★★★★ Goodreads Review - “I loved this book ….I’m in love with a tough hero and HAWK and Britney are so cute!!”

“Where are you going?” he asks, trailing a few feet behind me.

I slide my shoes on and search for my keys.

“Out,” I reply tersely.

“I’ll come with you,” he says.

“No. I’m only going for a drive to clear my head. Then I’m going to pick up some food.”

“Brittney, I told you I’m going where you go until this is over.”

I abandon my search for my keys and turn on him. “This is Greendale Valley. Nothing is going to happen here. Just let me be, okay?”

He pulls me close and holds me tight with his hand on the small of my back. “You and I both know living in a small town doesn’t keep bad things from happening. It’s not like we have scum detectors at all entrances to Greendale Valley. Some scum already lives here. Do I need to remind you of things that have happened in the last two years in this town?”

I break my gaze from his. Of course, I remember all the things that have happened here recently. We’ve had everything from obsessive stalkers to abusive pyscho ex boyfriends to misguided revenge ploys which got someone innocent killed. Small towns seem safe, but in reality there’s evil everywhere. No corner of the world is safe from it.

“Fine. You can drive, but I don’t want to talk. I want to grab some dinner from a drive thru and drive around,” I say as I concede.

He releases me and pulls my keys from under my purse and hands them to me before taking his own from his pocket. “If I’m driving, we’re taking my truck.”

I roll my eyes as I follow him outside and then lock my front door. He’s holding open the passenger door for me when I reach his truck. I climb in and let him shut the door and then watch as he rounds the front to get in the driver’s seat.

I direct him to the first fast food joint we see, and we order greasy burgers and even greasier fries. He pulls into a parking space and turns on the interior light so we can see to eat. He keeps his word about not talking as we chew in silence. Once we’re finished, he begins to drive around as promised.

I’ve been mulling over what he said to me in my bedroom. He said he was getting me out of this, but it’s him they really want. If he thinks he’s going to sacrifice himself somehow, he’s sorely mistaken. I won’t let him do that. I don’t know what happened in Nashville, but I know it’s enough to have driven him back home. He’s only tangled in this now because of me, because I couldn’t get over my pride enough to trust his warnings.

“Let’s run. We’ll go somewhere no one can find us,” I say suddenly.

His gaze cuts to me briefly. “There’s no place to run where they couldn’t find us. Besides, I’ve run from them for long enough.”

“Hawk, I won’t let you do whatever it is you think you’re going to do to get me out of this. I got myself into it, I’ll get myself out,” I declare.

He continues to drive in silence for a few more minutes before finally coming to a stop and switching off the ignition. He faces me. “You don’t have a choice, dolcezza. This was always meant to be my war, not yours. And I’m sorry you’re in the middle. But I promise, you’ll be able to get out of it and live the life you want.”

I stare at him, taking in his ruggedly handsome face. “The life I want is with you. The only life I ever imagined was with you beside me. I don’t care what we have to do, it’s what I want, Hawk.”

He reaches across the cab and tugs on my lower lip with his thumb. “I wish it were that simple.”

I pull away and get out of the truck. It doesn’t take long to realize where we are. He drove us back to the grove of trees behind where our houses were…the same place we almost made love for the first time all those years ago. I start to walk away but he grabs my wrist and twirls me around and into his embrace.

“Please don’t leave me here for a second time, Dolcezza,” he pleads in a husky voice.
