Striking Distance by LK Shaw comes out February 20 and you can read an excerpt BELOW!
I’m supposed to protect her, not desire her.
Especially since she’s my sister’s best friend.
I never imagined I’d get caught in the crossfire between the police and the Mexican cartel. After a failed kidnapping attempt, a bodyguard attaches himself to my hip.
Why does it have to be Victor: my best friend’s brother and the man I’ve had a crush on since I was sixteen?
Estelle tempts me like no other woman. I push aside my attraction though. My goal is to keep her safe, not sleep with her.
The stakes are at an all time high when someone betrays us to the enemy. Now it’s a race against the clock to find her before it’s too late.
I wanted to be able to trust this moment right here. I was desperate for it. My mind clutched tightly to the belief that Victor’s words were real. So I’d keep filling my memory box with these feelings and emotions until it couldn’t hold any more.
“I’m really glad I have you.” That was all I could commit to at the moment, but considering my feelings about relationships, that small concession was a giant step for me. “So, why don’t you tell me what you were talking about in the meeting.”
