“There is a vulnerability there,
hovering just below the surface. And I want to pick at it until I expose it.
Then I want to kiss it.”
Two years ago, Emily Burnham, had an
epiphany about the shallowness of her life.  And she made it her mission
to become a different person…a better woman.  Out from under the
controlling thumb of her mother, Emily is tasting the real world for the first
time.  And she likes it.
Nixon Caldwell has served his time
in the Marine Corps, surviving two brutal tours in Afghanistan. He is back
home, surrounded by what he likes best…isolation.  It’s certainly the
easiest way to avoid confrontation of the consuming guilt that is weighing him
down.
When an accident brings Emily and
Nix together, he soon learns he is not the master of his own fate. Struggling
with his own pain, Nix tries to guard himself against Emily’s charms.  He
wants her in his bed, but he doesn’t want her in his heart. 
Having grabbed life by the horns,
Emily wants it all.  But is she willing to accept just the small part of
himself that Nix is offering?  Can she reach the part of his soul that he
has deemed to be Off Limits?

Excerpt

Once I pull myself up into the
driver’s seat, I look over at her. She’s sitting with her hands clasped in her
lap and her gaze looks a bit vacant as she stares out the side window.
“Are you okay?” I ask
her.
She just nods her head but I see
her bottom lip start to quiver a bit. My stomach clenches. Normally, a girl
crying will freak me out and I’ll do anything to get away. But now, I kind of
want to take her in my arms and hold her…to reassure her that everything is
okay now. My arm rises up on its own accord and as I reach out to her, I
suddenly feel awkward. I’m not built for this. I don’t do chivalrous and I
don’t do reassuring.
I do hard and tough.
My arm drops in my lap and I start
the truck. Then I decide to be an asshole to prove I’m still me. “What the
hell were you doing out there by yourself? How could you let yourself get in
that situation?”
