He thought he had nothing left to give. She thought she was too broken to be loved. Together they’ll learn that there is more to their story than they ever dreamed.
Delilah Derringer is King’s Folly’s reformed mean girl. She hides her pain and her big heart under a mile of attitude. All she wants is to survive her past and provide for her family. Finding a little peace would be icing on the cake.
Boyd “Boomer” Hale is still recovering from the ultimate betrayal and a traumatic brain injury. All he wants is to be left alone, do his job and find a way to heal. Getting to a new normal is the name of the game.
Neither of them expected to literally run into each other outside their therapist’s office. A therapist that specializes in post-traumatic stress disorder.
When their well-meaning friends start making noises about setting them up with other people, Delilah and Boomer hatch a plan to sidestep the matchmaking. They’ll pretend to date each other. After all, neither of them is ready for any kind of relationship. Both of them have secrets. With the ink barely dry on their divorces, they’re in total agreement. As long as they follow the rules, there’s no chance their friendly arrangement can turn into anything else.
The rules change when Delilah’s trauma refuses to stay buried and her past comes back to terrify her. After flashbacks send her running to Boomer, he’s determined to build trust between them and protect her. His infinite patience gives her a safe space that makes her believe she can heal.
Will love help them realize that all their broken pieces fit perfectly when they're together?
