When I came back to Sin Valley, the mission was simple—avoid the ex-girlfriend who broke my heart. At all costs.
Too bad I just (accidentally) moved in next door to her. And her battery-operated boyfriend(s). Plural. Crap!
No matter how hard I try to steer clear of Desiree Grant, fate keeps tossing us together. And, so far? It’s not going too well for me.
When our eyes lock across the crowded bar, I get all tongue-tied and make a damn fool of myself. Next, we end up trapped in an elevator alone, and my protector instincts switch on at the speed of light. Then, a pink, glittery, vibrating package with her name on it shows up in my mailbox, and—poof!—there goes my master plan to resist her.
Okay. Change of plans.
Now, I’ve got a new mission in mind—reminding my gorgeous ex-girlfriend that her battery-operated playthings could never compare to me.
You see, the truth is, I never stopped thinking about her. Never stopped wanting her. Never stopped loving her.
But things are different now. She’s a single mother with a demanding career and a little boy she’s raising on her own. I’m a former military man struggling to find my place in the civilian world. The life I’m trying to build is a threat to the life she’s fighting to protect.
I’d go to war for a second chance with the girl who was always supposed to be mine. This time, I’m determined to give her the happy-ever-after she deserves.
Now, the only question is, how do I get her to play along?
Pfft…And I thought this would be simple.
Playing Along is a steamy, laugh-out-loud, single mom and grumpy protector-next-door, small-town second-chance romance. (Wow—that was a mouthful!) It is set in Sin Valley, Iowa, and is book three in the Playboys of Sin Valley Series, but can be enjoyed as a standalone.
