He wasn’t supposed to fall for her…
She was a target. A contract that came across his desk by mistake. Axel was simply going to warn her that she was in danger and get out. Then he got a taste of her and fell hard. But they’re from two different worlds. Not only is she innocent, she’s out of his league. He should keep his distance, but he can’t. Not when someone wants her dead. Now he’s driven to protect her, to keep her safe.
What happens when she discovers who he really is?
Hadley moved to Redemption Harbor for vet school and to be closer to her new family. Now that her billionaire father knows about her existence, her life has changed drastically. She just never imagined that she might be targeted because of her family. And she definitely never imagined she would fall for the one man she should never want. A man who kills for a living. A man who’s obsessed with her. A man who will do anything to protect her from the danger lurking in the shadows.
Axel rubbed the back of his neck as he slid into the truck he’d rented. Hadley Lane was sexy as fuck. Adorable even, with that damn dimple and the way her cheeks flushed pink. She hadn’t flirted with him at all, but she’d been sweet and open and… Hell.
He hadn’t planned on this. Hadn’t planned on her.
After he’d gotten a copy of a contract put out on her—sent by a friend who’d told him that this must be some sort of mistake and to check it out if he wanted—he’d done some digging. Once he’d realized she was related to Brooks Alexander he’d decided to visit Redemption Harbor in person.
Then he’d seen her in person yesterday. She was everything he wasn’t.
And he found himself impossibly drawn to her. Like a moron. She wasn’t for him. Not even close.
Yet…he was going to call her, spend time with her, but only to keep an eye on her. Because someone wanted her dead. And he hadn’t figured out who yet. Whoever it was, was a dead man walking.
The only thing he knew for certain was that three hitters had been sent Hadley’s information with instructions to kidnap her and bring her to a certain location unharmed. She was going to be used as leverage for something. Whatever it was wouldn’t matter to the guys who’d been sent after her. They just wanted to get paid.
Now there were only two men he had to be on the lookout for because he’d taken care of one last night.
