Levi Hawkins was a typical fun-loving, hard-partying college student with his whole life in front of him - until one tragic night ripped his world apart and left him adrift with no home or family to return to. After a soul-crushing stint in Afghanistan, he spent a decade wandering the globe searching for something or someone to make him whole again. Weary of regret and consumed by loneliness, he puts his heart on the line and turns to the only people still connected to him by blood.
He found an obsession...
A chance encounter at a lakeside café puts single mother Tori Ford directly in Levi's path and he's ready to stake a claim. She wants to keep her life simple. Work hard, raise her daughter, save some money and one day open the pie shop she's always dreamed of. She doesn't need complicated and she certainly doesn't need a wickedly hot dominant to take control of her future. Except when he touches her she yearns for the pleasure and passion of submission. But Tori can't take another heartbreak and she can never trust Levi with her heart or her daughter if he won't open up about the darkness slowly consuming him.
Due to mature content, this book is recommended to persons aged 18 and up.
