The last thing ATCOM agent, Brendan Devayne wants is to settle down. His adventurous lifestyle keeps him on the razor’s edge of life, just the way he likes it. He doesn’t expect to rescue a teenager from a mishap cliff dive during his R & R in Hawaii, or that the kid’s mom would make such an impact on him. A family isn’t in the cards for him, but something about Mia and her son challenges what he thinks he wants.
Mia Lawrence has made a lifetime of mistakes—from marrying the wrong guy at eighteen, getting pregnant soon after and divorcing him six years later. Now she’s struggling to keep her teenage son out of trouble that seems to find him-just as it had her ex. She’d hoped a getaway in the Islands would help them sort things out, to bond like they had when he’d been younger. But, things go very wrong when her son brings home a tall, handsome stranger who saved his life and turns her world upside down. He’s too much like her ex; someone who walked a fine line between foolish and dangerous. Mia vowed to never make the same mistakes twice, but Brendan makes her want to rewrite that vow.
