Lindsey Hilliard flees her charmed life in New York, searching for answers after her fiancé’s betrayal fills her with self-doubt. Unfortunately, her rented Malibu home is next door to Levi Hardy, the sexy but insufferable man who humiliated her years ago.
Hardened by a grim past he keeps concealed, Levi prefers maintaining a comfortable distance from folks, especially a nosy princess like Lindsey. But then a motorcycle collision brings him to his knees, forcing him to accept her assistance with his recovery. Sparks begin to fly when the woman who doesn’t believe in herself teaches the cynic how to have faith in others. Levi realizes his body will recover, but his heart won’t if Lindsey returns to the ex who wants her back.
In the biggest gamble of his life, Levi teaches her to trust her own voice, and hopes she’ll use it to say good-bye to her past and hello to a future with him.

Some say there’s no such thing as coincidence, but Jamie Beck does not agree in her romance, IN THE CARDS. When a snarky bartender and a teenage society girl meet, sparks fly—but not in a good way. Flashing forward eight years, a chain of events place the pair as unwilling neighbors. The cards are redealt when a bad motorcycle accident sends Levi, a confirmed bachelor with few real friends and no family that might care, into spinal surgery. Fearing he is alone, Lindsey, a New Yorker who fled to California to start a new life, takes on Levi’s recuperation as her new project. Ms. Beck’s deep understanding of the human mind is apparent, as she delves into the psyche of an insensitive hero as neatly as she portrays her heroine. This author is a master of conflict. Lindsey is as stubborn about helping out as Levi is obstinate and resentful. IN THE CARDS will keep you turning pages as you root for Lindsey to break through the ice around Levi’s heart. Don’t miss this one!
A truly fantastic book from a wonderful debut author. Very well written book with intriguing characters and a simple but beautiful storyline. Levi is a loner. Life has shown him that being alone is better than being hurt. When loving, caring Lindsey moves in next door his tightly controlled world goes spinning out of control. I simply couldn't put this one down and I highly recommend it to everyone.
