What started as an idea to bribe a girl then dares said girl to a more than not-so-friendly neighbors setup becomes a story of unexpected love.
Not one to take a chance, Lucy Badeaux takes the biggest one when she uproots herself from her home town of Palm Springs and moves to a small town in northern Washington state. The location is perfect. Her job and schedule is perfect. Getting away from the drama of her ex-boyfriend hooking up with her stepsister . . . perfect.
Too bad living next door to hunkiest of hunks, Bryce Morgan, ex-Supercross champion extraordinaire, is less than perfect. He mows the lawn too early in the morning, talks too loudly on the phone about his personal issues, and annoys Lucy with his I’m-too-good-for-you attitude.
When Bryce finds her little book of secrets, Lucy suspects him of intending to bribe her with it. But what does Lucy have that Bryce wants?
As the attraction between them heats up and the barriers of their misconceptions of one another crumble, Bryce and Lucy soon realize their mutual “experiment” and near perfect friendship is the perfect set-up for love or . . . heartbreak.
Torn. Broken. Damaged. Words Lucy Badeaux would never use to describe her life, not after snagging one of the hottest guys in town. A move to a new state helps her leave the drama of her family and life behind in Palm Springs. However, her past doesn’t want to be forgotten or ignored.
When a tragic incident in her hometown threatens her life, Lucy accepts the protection of a bodyguard–a man who jeopardizes her relationship with her boyfriend, Bryce. Torn by how intensely she feels for Bryce, yet scared he’ll leave her when he realizes how broken and damaged she is, Lucy must make the choice to open up to Bryce, or shut him out of her life for his safety.
Jealous. Worried. Pissed. Words Bryce Morgan would never use when it comes to how he feels for his girlfriend, Lucy. And he’ll be damned if he lets her think their relationship is doomed to fail. Sure, they took their less-than-friendly neighbors situation to the next level too fast and too far, but opposites attract, right?
Bryce will do whatever it takes to convince Lucy they belong together. Lucy is determined to keep secrets from Bryce. Will secrets and a sexy bodyguard drive them further apart? Or can their love overcome their fears and insecurities?
