When she calls home to discuss her concerns, she learns the child lives with a much older brother.
She also discovers he’s her next door neighbor and dangerous.
Complete with tattoos, piercings and lots of leather, he’s everything Tricia isn’t interested in.
She knows all about the menacing-man types and she won’t be walking into the darkness again.
She’s smarter than that.
Leon Ramirez never learns.
Case in point is the woman next door.
When his sister has issues in school, he can’t seem to stay out of trouble himself. Addicted to dangerous situations in his formative years, this former gang member just wants to live a simple life, work on cars, and drink his beer in peace.
His vivacious, witty and tempting neighbor screams off limits, and he won’t dismiss the signs. He’s not that dumb.
When you don’t heed the signs, the heart reads between the lines.
Author note: A hot mechanic who quotes Shakespeare and the teacher next door leads to small-town suspense, swoon-worthy sexy time, and a second chance at love.

So good! This book addresses some real life circumstance that really hit home for many; a relationship with physical and emotional abuse, teen pregnancy, divorce, immigration, illiteracy, plus more. I can really say it’s just so well done. Tricia is smart and sassy. Leon is all about his responsibility and protecting those he cares about. And Leon comes to care a great deal about Tricia. This story hits one of my favorite tropes – Alpha male protects his love. Another fantastic rewrite in this series! I cannot wait for more! 4.5 stars!

I’ve been accused of having an over-active imagination.
To my benefit, this imagination has created over twenty novels, including the creation of a small-town world (Sensations Collection), rock star mayhem (Legendary Rock Star series), MMA chaos (Paradise Stories), rom-com for the over forty (The Sex Education of M.E.), and a suspenseful island for redemption (The Island Duet).
My alter ego, elda lore, creates magical romance through mythological retellings (Modern Descendants). My life revolves around a deep love of reading about fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and strong alpha males.
I love a deep belly laugh, a strong hug, and an occasional margarita. My other loves include being mother to four grown children and wife to the one and only.
