A snowstorm brought them together, but her past might tear them apart...
Bartender Ryan Carlisle is ready to leave his playboy days behind. He used to believe commitment was something to be wary of but watching his best friend fall in love and get engaged has him starting to think differently. His path to finding love won’t be easy, since the first and only woman to stir his protective instincts and make him dream of forever, is running scared and looking for a place to start over.
When Anna Thorn comes into his pub, desperate for a safe harbor, the last thing either of them expects is the thrill of instant attraction. They’re both trying to move on from their past and find happiness in their future. Together, they must learn to trust, and ultimately, to love.
As Anna’s past catches up to her, their relationship – and her life – will be thrown into jeopardy.


Anna escaped from a brutal life. She'd been given a chance at the cost of her last family member. Her gran left her a home. Now all she needed was a job. Warming up after her long bus ride put her in a pub to get the hot drink and ended up with a job. And more.

Ryan was tending bar on the slow night she walked in and captured his attention. He was a one-night-stand kind of guy. His experience of relationships taints his confidence in finding a future for himself.

Their beginning became more. He made her feel safe but resisted anything longterm. When trouble finds her maybe his thinking will change.

I enjoyed the story and their love and friends from the previous story in the series. However, after being in a controlling abusive relationship I would think she would be more resistant to quickly fall again.
