Brooke Carter never expected to be a victim, but as a trophy girlfriend to a dangerous mobster, Marco, that’s exactly what she’s become. Marco is possessive and abusive, but at least his secret inclination towards the male wait staff prevents him from touching her. But when his right hand man, Donovan, decides that Brooke’s body is up for grabs, Brooke has no choice. She runs.
Terrified and barefoot on the highway, Brooke doesn’t know what to do or where to go – until she meets Josh.
Josh is unlike any man she’s ever known – he’s annoying but kind, protective but elusive. When he rescues her off the road and takes her to his family’s ranch, she’s convinced the best thing for everyone is to hop a bus and get as far away as possible. But then she falls in love – with the ranch, with the family, and… with Josh.
But Donovan and Marco are still out there. And if they find her, they will kill her.
As Brooke fights for her life and for the love of her life, she uncovers a strength and resilience she never knew she had and a handsome hero who makes running the last thing on her mind.
