When Maxx Robertson thought about the saying, “something would be the death of him”, he had no true concept of what it meant. That is, until he met her. All of four-foot-nothing and lighter than his duffle bag on an easy gear day, he knew he was lost the minute those brown eyes focused on him. His life was difficult enough being part man and part beast, add to it this spitfire and it was a recipe for shenanigans—the kind he wouldn’t pass up for the world.
Zowie James didn’t expect her new boss to be not only charming but attractive in a way that made her contemplate dirty deeds in alleyways as perfectly acceptable break pass-times. He is mysterious, dangerous, and everything she’s been warned to stay away from. When things start going badly at his club, she has no way of knowing if he is involved or not.
The tension and attraction between them would be challenging enough without the mafia trying to take over Maxx’s club, or without Zowie’s natural ability to find herself in the middle of trouble over and over. Will they make it out of this alive or are they doomed from the beginning? Will Maxx come clean to Zowie about what makes him quite so domineering or will he continue to hide behind his temper regardless of the situation?
