Contemporary romance author Nash Edwards’ debut novel is a smart, funny, and sometimes tragic look at what can happen when the mind meddles in matters of the heart.
Given up for adoption at birth, Eve has always been haunted by one defining belief. She isn’t good enough. Why else would her birth parents have given her away? Ambitious, driven, an overachiever, she’s sure everyone in her life will eventually abandon her. Eve’s built an impenetrable fortress around her heart. Intimacy is only skin deep for L.A.’s number one investigative reporter, and commitment nothing more than another promise that will eventually be broken… or so she believes.
Everything changes the day Jack Moorefield, single father and lumberjack from the wilds of northern Oregon, practically runs her over at the airport. The mysterious man with a twinkle in his eyes sets her life on a course she resists no matter how beguiling his smile.
Tenacious to a fault and completely devoted to his young daughter, Jack is everything Eve believes she doesn’t deserve. The man’s uncanny ability to scale the walls guarding her heart infuriates, yet enchants; dangerous ground for Eve.
