His second chance may cost him his sweetest addiction …
The truth about NEVEAH’S cheating fiancĂ©e hit hard—but not as hard as her right hook to his jaw. After ridding herself of him she travels back home to Huntsville, Texas to her father and his boxing gym where she grew up. When she finds a beaten man in the woods beside her home, her entire life changes and things get—complicated.
Ex-con RAGE only wants two things—for the man that set him up to release his sister, and for him to burn in Hell where he belongs. After being released from prison, he heads straight to the man that put him there, only to be beaten and tossed in the woods for dead. When he’s found by the most beautiful girl he’s ever met, he knows he’ll have a chance to rescue his sister even though she doesn’t realize she needs saving.
Neveah and her father, nurse Rage back to heath, offer him a job at their gym and quickly find out that he’s amazing in the ring. Without them knowing who he is, he knows he’s been given a second chance to live his life. The only condition is that he has to stay away from Neveah, which is a promise he soon realizes is hard to keep. The feisty southern beauty normally gets what she wants, and Rage wants to give her everything.
With the truth lurking in the shadows, Rage must decide if his sweetest addiction is worth giving up his second chance.




EXCERPT 1:
Empty beer cans littered the floor of the stairs, a bra hung from the end railing. The second floor was darker than the bottom where lights hung. Couples swayed to the slow

music, oblivious to anything outside of themselves. It didn’t take long to find Neveah because of the damn clothes she had on.

Just in the twenty seconds it took me to get to her, three guys had looked at her ass. My body hummed at the threat of anyone touching her except me. And she wasn’t even mine—or palpable.

The drink in her hand was almost empty, and by the way she swayed on her feet, I’d say she’d downed it.

Gripping her elbow, I twisted her toward me. Those moss green eyes were furious, her sharp brows slanted in an anger that drove through my chest. “Neveah, listen—,”

“What’s your real name?” she blurted out, her fist bunching with the front of my T-shirt. All the blood in my body raced toward my dick, her hands so tiny but aggressive on me turned something on inside of me that I feared I couldn’t turn back off.

Before I did what I wanted in front of everyone, I grasped the hand on me, pulled it free and marched her to the darkest corner I could find. I pressed her soft body into the crook of a window.

With a parted mouth, she closed her eyes and tried to free herself. “What’s your fucking name?” she whispered, the venom in her voice sent chills down my spine.

Capturing her wrist, I pulled them above her head, loving the look of lust in her eyes. There was no stopping it now. I wasn’t leaving the barn until I’d tasted that smartass mouth. “Rage,” I whispered. “My name is Rage.”

Something crossed her face but was gone before I could read it. “Who the fuck are you? You aren’t Declan Samuels. I knew you didn’t look like a Declan. Why did you lie? Let me go!”

My grip tightened and a slight moan slipped from her lips. “Don’t act like you’re scared now, Champ. We both know this is what you want.” I held both hands in one wrist, slid my index finger down her face to her bottom lip. “And this is exactly what I need.”

She stared blankly up at me, her chest rising and falling in quick jolts, her hips pressed harder against my cock. “Why did you tell me so quickly? Why not try to hide it anymore?”

That was easy. “As soon as I saw you just now,” I pressed forward, “I knew I wanted to kiss those pouty lips. And I wanted you to say my fucking name when I did it. Not his. Mine.”


Excerpt 2:
I ate in my room like a sulky teenage girl because I was too embarrassed to face Cooper.

The smartass smile on his face when I told him I didn't have a fiance anymore told me he knew something went wrong. And that's what he told me would happen if I moved off by myself. And the number one assumption is cheating, and that was it. I was cheated on. I hoped Cooper was happy.

Dumb bastard.

My fingertips wrapped tightly around my windowsill. Cooper went to check on Declan an hour before and was already snoring from our spare bedroom across the hallway.

I knew it wasn't a good idea to go look but some invisible force pushed me forward. Groaning, I shoved my window up and the humid breeze nearly sucked the breath from me.

Lucy sat at my side, but I didn't want to risk her barking and waking up the house so I put my finger up.

She whined but didn't move as I slid through the window to the muggy ground. The lights were off in the guest house, but I could see the nightstand lamp was dimly lit.

Adrenaline soared through me. I had no idea why I needed to take a look at him, but I did. The window blinds were pulled up a couple of inches, and it gave me enough space to see into the room.

The room was quiet, but the hammering of my heart beat loudly in my eardrums. It took my eyes a minute to adjust but when they did I saw him. The way my heart jumped to my throat sent waves to no man's land.

Good God. He was lying on his back in the small twin size bed. His arms and legs hung loosely over the sides since the bed was way too small for him.

The lamp gave me enough light to see his glistening skin. He had to be hot because that damn guest house only had one small window unit. The ridges in his stomach tightened with every breath. The waves down below had suddenly turned into a raging fire. He was so real and raw that it made me ache to get closer. I needed to see him.

Biting my lip, I grabbed the windowsill when Lucy let out a loud bark from my bedroom window a few yards away. I froze and tossed her a don't you dare do it again look. When I glanced back inside, Declan stared at me from his bed.

The fire erupted inside of me. I was so embarrassed that he'd caught me looking but couldn't make myself turn away from him. Our eyes were focused on one another. A low steady hum of electricity burned bright in the pit of my stomach. He was beautiful. His square jaw was locked tight, and his hands clutched the sheets beneath him. Lucy barked again, and I jumped back and sprinted into a run toward the window.

God, how stupid could I get?
