Never trust the guy who wants to commit.
My life’s dream is simple. Get married, have babies, and have the same happily ever after as my best friend. So why did I dump my longtime boyfriend, soon-to-be fiancé, and bring one of my worst fears—being alone—to life?
And why did I take that dark alley and allow myself to be attacked? As an ID channel enthusiast, I know the dangers lurking in the world. I warn my friends about it regularly. Now I have a stalker, which brings my other worst fear to life.
The person who comes to my rescue isn’t my ex or even my bestie. Easton—my gorgeous, flirty friend, and my bf’s brother-in-law—shows up to care for me. He’s the opposite of the preppy guys I date. He’s rugged, sexy, and doesn’t know the meaning of the word commitment. Other than helping me with my stalker, he can’t give me what I want. So why am I falling for him anyway?
As the spare to the heir, I’m the carefree brother. The guy no one expects much from—not even my own family. But I’m here to prove them all wrong. I’m not the man I was a year ago. Sadie is proof of that.
I never would have let someone like her get close to me. Yet she found a way into my life without climbing into my bed. That never happens. She friend-zoned me long ago, and out of respect for my brother and sister-in-law, I’ve kept my hands to myself. Only now, she’s in my home, showing sides of herself I didn’t know existed. She’s more than I could have imagined, better.
I didn’t know protecting her would make me crave her so much. I can give her a safe place, a good time, pleasures she’s never known, but I can’t give her the dream she desires.
