Rekindling their love was only the start…
…somewhere in the midst of torrid heat and sweaty pleasure, I marvel at how right I’d been in allowing Mick past my defenses. In trusting that he was the one I could lose my inhibitions with. The one I could bare myself to.
Dee knew from the moment they met, Mick would be her tidal wave. His passion is breathtaking. His desire, exhilarating. The risk, terrifying. But Dee isn’t the same insecure girl that left him years ago.
She’s stronger, more determined. She’s ready to move past the pain of her childhood and her struggles with body issues to let Mick deep inside her heart. That means stripping away those lingering layers to uncover all the beauty he so clearly sees.
Mick has only ever loved one woman. Dee is the light to his darkness, the balm to his old wounds. He once made a promise to protect her, and failed. Haunted by guilt, he vows not to make that mistake again. But his celebrity as a former sports star will test the very essence of that promise. It will open their relationship and Dee’s hard-won progress to overzealous paparazzi, the scrutiny of social media, and worse—hidden truths that threaten their future.
In this passionate story of self-discovery and second chances, Dee and Mick face their greatest battle. Will they fully bare it all to set themselves free? Or will they let vengeful enemies and the sharp claws of the past rip them apart…this time for good?
