Regina DeLuca left her Chicago crime family for a less violent life. Three years later she is now Reggie Dennis—a truck driver keeping on the move.

When her big rig breaks down in Merry Dale, a small suburb outside of Baton Rouge, Reggie needs to earn some extra cash. She takes a job with single father Josh Fisher, a landscape designer with an alluring habit of working shirtless. No matter how distracting his muscles are, Reggie knows a future of staying in one place is an impossible dream that risks Josh’s family to the danger always at her heels.

But when that danger becomes a reality, Reggie will have to find the courage to stop running and embrace her past—even if it means exposing her true self to Josh and losing him forever.

After all, DeLucas don’t get happily ever afters.

” When the characters finally get together it takes you to an all-time high. Natasha Raulerson even wove in some major twists at the end which proved that sometimes the unexpected is just what you need! ”
