Logan Bane always knew he wasn’t good enough for Ella Perez.
He was just a confused kid in a bad neighborhood. Ella was smart and beautiful, brilliant and special. When she looked at him, it was like feeling the sun on his face for the first time. Then she left him behind for bigger and better things, and Logan promised himself he’d never let someone cut him so deep again.
Gabriella Perez couldn’t afford to stay.
Staying in the old neighborhood meant staying stuck, staying poor. A full scholarship and entry to a prestigious law school was her chance to escape. It meant a brighter future — but it also meant leaving behind the boy she’d loved her entire life.
Now, twenty years, a marriage, a child, and a divorce later, Gabriella is in trouble. Assigned to prosecute a high-high-profile mob case, she finds herself the target of Yakov Vistin, one of the Chicago Bratva’s most notorious mob bosses. Calling in the security firm owned by her old best friends, Hawk and Logan, Gabriella hopes to stay alive — and keep her son safe — long enough to put Vitsin behind bars.
There’s just one problem — protection means being in close quarters with Logan for the first time since high school.
When old passions ignite, they’re forced to answer painful questions about the past and ask new ones about the future. As the trial date nears, the threat against Gabriella hits too close to home. Soon there’s only one way out, and Logan is forced to entertain the possibility that saving Gabriella’s life may mean losing her forever.
