Control has kept me from falling apart after living through the unthinkable. Control over my life. My community. My heart. But none of that changes the past.
Not wanting anyone else to live through heartache, I’ve paid my dues, and as police captain, I’ve done everything in my power to keep the people of Cherry Fall safe. I’ve devoted my life to them. In a few years, I’ll be able to retire from the police department and take some time for myself.
My plan is rock solid. Then Bayleigh Green walks into my life.
She challenges me at every turn. She tests the walls I built around my heart. And she makes me want to be a better man. But can I face my demons? The secret I’ve kept from those closest to me?
Can I give up control?
If I don’t, she’ll slip through my fingers and I’ll lose the most precious thing to ever enter my life.
