There's no defense when love blindsides your heart.
The Braddock Brotherhood, Book 3
Once Trey Christopher was the small-town golden boy. Now he's just another burned-out, washed-up ex-quarterback with a bum knee, a tarnished reputation, and a simple wish. To be the kind of man he can face in the mirror.
Moving back home is a start, as is hiring a down-on-her-luck local woman to help him out around his grandparents' old homestead.
The last thing Baylee Westring wants is to clean house for a high school crush who barely remembers her name, but Trey's money will finally top off her get-out-of-Hendersonville-forever escape fund.
Before she hits the road, though, Baylee's got something for the man she still finds wildly attractive: the virginity he almost-but not quite-took during a drunken teenage party.
Neither is prepared for the emotional impact of that encounter. But just when Baylee dares to believe in happy ever after, an old enemy turns up to even the score. And Trey finds his heart left in the red zone, with his last chance for love ticking down to zero.
Warning: Contains an overeducated housekeeper who's open to receiving a pass or two, and an ex-football player who can't seem to stop himself from showing her all his moves.
