Jaxon Hayes is everything I despise.

Finding myself in a changing room with Mr. Army Ranger after we’re invited to a destination wedding in Sicily changes everything. I can’t forget the memory of his very expert touch, no matter how hard I try.

Thoughts of how he made my body sing in Sicily follow me back to New York’s Finger Lakes where my dreams are haunted by the man who’s humanity I’d glimpsed. A man determined to make me continue hate him despite the fact that—horrors of all horrors—I may be falling in love with him too.
