Avery Knicely grew up with three older brothers who can’t see her as anything but the family’s baby. What she really wants and needs is twisted with doubts, but after the ways of her brothers, she’s positive she doesn’t need a man to hover over her.
Security specialist Bryson Welch’s controlling and manipulative twin sister reminds him on a daily basis why he joined the army and why he never should have returned home to endure the toxic relationships his sister and mother perpetuate. A blind date leads to a cold but eye-opening night in his vehicle and fulfills a Christmas wish for Bryson.
Will he be able to show Avery he can take care of her in the ways she really needs without overpowering her? Or will family come between the young lovers and lead Avery to question his true intentions?
