Vanessa Carmichael will never forget that horrible day for as long as she lives. With Zane fully on the mend from the brutal attack he suffered right in her very own yard, she knows she should be grateful, which she is. She also knows that walking away from Zane might be the only way to keep him safe. Despite her denial, V knows she can’t trust her own heart, especially when it comes to the youngest Walker brother, but he’s not the kind of man who will walk away when there is something he wants. He wants her even if it isn’t safe for him, and she’s not sure she is strong enough to walk away.
Zane Walker might have been brutally attacked and after months in the hospital, walked away with his life spared, but now that he’s out of the hospital, he has only one goal in mind. Getting the girl. From the first time he kissed her, Zane knew V was the one for him. He also knew that getting her wasn’t going to be as easy as he hoped. She’s stubborn and the walls she has erected around her heart are nearly impenetrable. However, there’s one thing about Zane – he never gives up. And he’s not about to start now.
Can V learn to open her heart to the one man who is desperate to get past those walls she has erected, or will she walk away to protect him? How long will Zane allow her to deny what he knows is growing between them? Or is the only option to obscure the underlying emotions with spine tingling lust?
When V and Zane come together, smoke detectors go on the fritz, but when they bring Zane’s best friend Beau into the mix, extra fire extinguishers are needed.

“You ok?” Beau’s voice was both soothing and calm, the complete opposite of her emotions at the moment.
No. No, she sure was not. “Sure. Why wouldn’t I be?”
“Y’all can’t run from each other forever, you know.”
V glanced up at Beau, wishing he would mind his own business, but at the same time appreciating the fact that he cared enough to check on her.
“Don’t you have a stripper that would like to experience what it’s like to be the center of an Oreo?”
“He’s not like that, V. You know it, and I know it.”
“No?” she questioned, glancing behind him to see what Zane was doing at the moment. To her surprise, he was sitting by himself once again, staring down into his beer. Damn him.
V spent the last week coming up with all the pros and cons of being with Zane Walker and she didn’t want to admit it, but the list was undoubtedly in his favor.
As much as she wanted to pretend he wasn’t exactly what she wanted, V hadn’t been able to come up with enough that would convince her. Even the “too young” that she’d put at the very top of the list was bullshit, and she knew it. If anything, Zane was more mature than she was in many ways. Especially when it came to accepting his feelings. She just wasn’t sure why she couldn’t get past that nagging feeling that told her to keep her distance.
