He's my best friend.
He's everything I ever wanted.
And he doesn't know how I feel.
I have three weeks left to tell him before he leaves this place forever...
Matt Girard is the guy every girl wants. Rich, handsome, and popular, his future is brighter than the sun. Evie Baker comes from the wrong side of town. She loves Matt desperately, but he only sees her as his tomboy best friend instead of the young woman she's blossomed into.
Until one fateful night when a reckless dare changes everything...
He took her innocence. He broke her heart. He's the only one who can save her life...
Ten years ago, Matt Girard did something he shouldn't. His best friend offered him her virginity-and he took it. Then he left town and he's never looked back. Until now.
Matt still makes Evie Baker's heart pound, but she wants nothing to do with him. She's had enough of men who lie and promise things they don't deliver. But when her sister goes missing and her ex-boyfriend turns up dead, she's in desperate need of Matt's military black ops skills to save the day.
With time running out, Matt puts everything on the line-his career, his future, his heart. Even if it means sacrificing his military career, he won't let Evie down this time. Because sometimes the reward is worth the price-especially when it's the one woman he can never forget.
BONUS WEDDING EPILOGUE
Matt and Evie tie the knot on the steps of Matt's family home, Reynier's Retreat, with many of the Hostile Operations Team members in attendance.
