Disappointment. Rejection. Loneliness.

Feelings that have been suffocating single mom Kate Miller for years.

Moving to New Hope to raise her six-year-old son is supposed to be a fresh start, a way to put her past in the rearview mirror and focus on the road ahead. She isn't looking for friendship or a relationship, especially with one very sexy detective who won't stay out of her life or out of her mind.

No matter how hard she pushes him away.

Luke Dimarco is a man who's faced his mortality. After surviving a shooting, in which he was the target of revenge, he understands life is fleeting. When Kate explodes into his world, showing him a glimpse of a future filled with all the things he craves, he makes the decision to grab a hold and not let go.

Even if it means sacrificing what he already has.

However, a darkness still surrounds the small town of New Hope and they will learn the only way to keep each other safe is to stand together. Luke will need to show Kate that trust is not just a word, but given to the right person, a promise.

But is it a promise he can keep?

5 Stars Review by Elizabeth Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/Books Blog I have been on a streak here lately and have read nothing but five star worthy books. Hands down, Kate, installment five in the Dimarco series by Jennifer Hanks, is absolutely brilliant and worth way more than five stars!! Get ready to fasten those seatbelts. Kate has been burned badly in the past by her ex-husband. When she moves herself and her son, Andy, to a new town to start over, she isn’t looking for anyone. Especially a relationship. When she meets Luke she inserts her foot in her mouth big time. It is quite comical. Luke, on the other hand, is smitten. Will Kate be able to ignore Luke’s advances? I cannot tell you how many times I laughed or cried. Luke is such a sweetheart and you cannot help falling for him once you get inside his head. Andy, is adorable and so sweet. Kate will really do anything for her son and I love that about her. Now, Kate is a strong independent woman that stands up for herself and does not take crap from anyone. Not even Luke. It was smitten at first sight for Luke but not for Kate. Kate guards her heart and her son like no other. Jennifer Hanks did a remarkable job writing their story and her characters are amazing. I really wish there was more of Luke and Kate. I will be looking for installment six in the series!

Absolutely loved the latest instalment of the Dimarco family!! Superb writing that brings us a family we can pretend is ours. A family whose constant love and support for each other is something we all wish we had. All the characters are loveable, even when they are exhibiting realistic tendencies of squabbling siblings. The shenanigans of the new puppy, Cookie, were hysterical. And Andy made my day. Seriously! Things kids say!! Kept me in stitches. Loved the alpha in Luke! He stood up for what he believed in and took care of what he felt was his. Regardless if it meant he followed the law or not. This is most definitely an interesting story with an intriguing plot! It has some steamy scenes for sure, but this story is more about the love and friendship Luke and Kate are trying to build. The author did a spectacular job portraying their relationship. This beautiful story is truly a must read!!
