Jessica Altman has been hurt before. An undergrad studying in New York City, she’s always been the great girlfriend who’s been hurt and cheated on by men who don’t appreciate her. She never thought she’d meet the man of her dreams while working at a small café to put herself through school—especially while sweating through a busy shift.
The baby of the Hawthorne family, Liam Hawthorne has never been one to back down from a challenge. An MMA fighter, Liam fights for a living—and wins. One day after practice he decides to take up an offer for cheap coffee in a café, and when he meets Jessica, he’s immediately smitten.
When Liam hits it big in his fighting career and a troubled person from his past returns unexpectedly, Jessica loses her confidence and wonders if their relationship will be shaken to rubble. Will Liam fight for her, or will he let her go?
This story features alternating POVs by chapter. This is a non-cliffhanger HEA and the third in a trilogy where each book focuses on a different Hawthorne brother. Each story is independent of the others, and they can be read in any order.
