Xander Evans has been on the road for many years. Never settling. Always moving from one place to another, unable to let go of his past. He lived a tragic childhood, spending most of those years in foster care. He's never felt like he's had a home. That is until he stops in the small town of Truman Valley, Missouri, where he meets a woman who will change everything he's ever known.
Paige Watson has it all. A loving family, beautiful home, and a great career. The only thing she's missing....is love. After escaping an abusive relationship, she opens her heart up to a stranger. He is unlike any man she's ever met. He came into her life and turned it completely upside down. Everything is perfect. That is, until one fateful night.
A night that would tear the Watson family apart, never to be put back together again.
A night that would send Xander away to prison for life.
"He was over here for like five hours last night drinking and talking with Dad. You think I like him? My dad's in love. And the way he didn’t hesitate to put Benji in his place, I just think Dad’s got a good feeling about him."
"Shit, I've got a good feeling about him too... and it's in my panties." She laughs and motions toward her crotch. "If I had been working and saw him do that to Benji's fat ass, I would've let him fuck me right on top of the bar…and I would’ve let everyone watch."
"I'm serious. Fuck it!”
"Paige, don't tell me you didn't notice that anaconda stuffed into his jeans?"
"What?! What the fuck are you talking about? Anaconda? I wasn't looking at his damn jeans." I laugh, finding it hard to not to love this girl who has become like a sister to me. She's the craziest bitch I know, but she's got my back no matter what. She's had it since day one.
"Why wouldn’t you look at his jeans? That’s where his dick is!”
AMIE'S 5 STAR REVIEW
An AMAZING debut SOLO novel for BT - his co-authored debut was amazing as well so I couldn't wait to see what he could do on his own. This is set up to be a series and let me just say between the ending and the two epilogues we are in for an interesting journey.
The story starts in the present and then we are taken back to where it all begins for Paige and Zander. I loved the build up and the story flowed so easy. Zander is not an easy guy to understand, some of his actions and choices made me angry but at the same time you can see he has such a huge heart and his time spent at the Watson's was just what he needed to wake him up and set him on the right path - of course that is until that horrible night - the night that brings us back to the present where Zander is currently in prison for something he did not do.
Paige and her family have the life - a winery - a metal business and love. An adopted son completes their picture perfect life. Of course once you get to know them you see the truth. A troubled son , down right strange and scary - Paige who struggles with a nasty ex and the families generous nature may end up being their ultimate downfall.
As Zander rolls into town and Paige's family welcomes him with open arms our story begins to unfold. Weird behavior by a few, trouble with the ex and a semi forbidden romance all spiral and come crashing down. Years go by after that one night and Paige is barely hanging on. Her family was torn apart and her hate is so strong. One letter , one visit , one request sets Paige and Zander on the path to righting wrongs and finding the truth. You will be shocked and amazed. Then as quickly as you assume an HEA you will be thrown into the next adventure. Where will it lead Zander and will Paige find her way to him once again ??
