He may very well be the perfect ex. Isaac McKnight has had enough loss in his life to know never to take anything for granted. So when the perfectly-imperfect-woman-for-him puts an end to their relationship out of the blue, it's Isaac that makes sure they remain friends. Now a year later, whether it's at his gym or her brewpub, or the dog park they visit every weekend--though neither of them own a dog--he and Xoey are steadily getting sucked deeper into buddy-zone galaxy, with its dangerous proximity to watch-me-settle-down-with-someone-else abyss. It's a reality he's resigned himself to. That is...until one drunken confession changes everything.
She's looking for the perfect oh. For Xoey Montenegro, history has taught her that sometimes, it's Prince Charming who vanishes without a trace. And fairytale love? Highly overrated. Heck, give her a real and perfect 'oh' over that fantasy any day. So as far as rock-solid tequila-fueled plans for her love life go, coming up with a match-finding formula based on the qualities of the men responsible for her three most epic ohs seems brilliant. Except for the fact that one-third of her genius little man-quation is all about her friend Isaac. Actually, more than a third if Xoey were being honest with herself--which she's not. Because full honesty would require thinking not just about how perfect Isaac really is, but also about how perfect the fourth epic oh she's kept buried deep in her past once was.
An easy enough thing to keep ignoring...until her past isn't past tense anymore.
From the author of the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling Can't Resist series comes a new standalone novel in the USA TODAY bestselling Cactus Creek series.
He's a better fighter...but she has all the weapons.
After his combat injuries retire him from the military career he wasn't ready to give up, battle-scarred Hudson Reyes now spends his new life as a movie industry fight scene and weapons specialist simply doing what he knows best: surviving. Until he meets her. The one woman who makes him want to live again.
Sweet, angel-faced Liana Lin is a scrappy little thing--an antique arms authenticator trained in martial arts who's made a living turning the unthinkable demons of her past into the passions that fuel, and fill, her life.
He can't get her out of his head.
Even though she's everything he's told himself he can't have, Hudson can't help but want her. She's a fiery, unpredictable paradox with hidden wounds as deep as his own, and a wicked roundhouse kick that's become mighty acquainted with his head. If one woman could sneak past the barbed wires he's wrapped around his heart, it'd be Lia.
Now if only they could stop sparring long enough to find out...
