Ten years ago, Ryleigh O'Donnell let the love of her life go so he could follow his dreams. Now, she's a successful bar owner, a loyal and fierce friend, and someone everyone counts on. She has everything she has ever dreamed of, but there is still a void inside her the size of a six-foot-four professional fighter, Rook Wallace, who she is forced to watch on television.
When she finds her past hiding in the shadows under her fire escape and asking for her help, she knows she should turn him away—protect herself. Her heart doesn't care what her mind wants, though, and she risks everything by letting him back into her life. She just has to hold on long enough for him to clear his name, and keep his career afloat, then she can go back to business as usual … at least that's what she tells herself.
About the Author
New Adult and Contemporary Romance author, T.E. Black, also known as Tiffany, is never without a book in her hand. Whether she’s reading the newest release from a fellow author, or proofreading one of her own drafts, she’s always keeping busy.
Tiffany writes about imperfect heroes and strong-willed heroines. While, her heroines are known for going to head to head with the men in her stories, the heroes she writes always have that special touch of alpha.
When she’s not immersed in the literary world, Tiffany makes use of her time by being a full-time graphic designer for a company she owns and operates, creating book covers, teasers, banners, and swag for other authors and herself.
She began writing when stories she had read sparked an idea. She plotted her story, wrote three chapters, then scraped it where she let it sit in her computer for months. Instead of focusing on the potential of the story she had begun, she couldn’t help but feel as if she would never be able to publish a book as good as the ones she had read.
Months later, she obtained the courage to go back to her laptop and open up the dreaded first draft she had written. With a clear head and determination, she worked for hours on perfecting the three chapters she had written.
When she sat back in her seat, looking over her six thousand words, it clicked.
The story fell into place.
The characters spoke to her.
The plot lines began to pour from her fingertips, landing on her keyboard.
And then it finally happened.
She had written a novel.
Love it, like it, or hate it, Tiffany loves hearing from her fans! Feel free to connect with her!

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books. *I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review* I absolutely loved this story. I read it in a single day and wished it wouldn’t have had to end. I absolutely adored Rook and Ryleigh’s story. It was a simple, sweet, loving, yet very complicated love story. There were times that were heartbreaking, others I was yelling at the characters, and other times, I was reading in awe of their chemistry. I was quite shocked with the way that the story played out. There are twists and turns that you would never think of! Rook really got himself in a hole and it was intriguing watching him get out of it. There was some incredible detail to portray to the reader what was happening, what the scenery looked like, and that little extra to make the story just flow from page to page flawlessly. These characters are still an absolute blast to read about! Of course Trent had to but in a little bit and take over the book. Ryleigh finds herself and finds her voice. She is a beautiful character that has grown in leaps and bounds since this series started. I can’t wait to see how she further grows as the series continues. I’m absolutely recommending this book to you! I’m really sad I read the book so fast because the story was just so good. You will be happy you read the story and will be begging the author to write faster! Get the book – what are you waiting for?
