Falling for Mr. Chase by Adeline Clark
Twenty-two year old Izabel Renaldi is a survivor. Having survived a brutal attack in college that pushed her to transfer schools, change majors, and redirect her entire future, she is cocooning herself in her own safety net to protect against further detriment. The attack has thus far changed her capabilities to fully relate to men until she finds that one man is just stubborn and foolish enough to turn her safe world on its head.
A chance meeting in a bar quickly proves to be a white-hot connection between Izabel and Kendall Chase, a popular eligible bachelor and successful businessman. Present when her past resurfaces and nearly claims her life, Kendall invests in an uncertain future with Izabel in spite of the certain challenges they will face together. The harder Izabel pushes Kendall away the harder he fights to stay an active part of her life and prove to her there can be life and love beyond her tragedy.
