Hot. Hard. Hazardous.
Hunter Anderson is good at burying dark secrets behind his lethal smile. It’s a great skill to have in his line of work, but one he learned long before becoming a member of the Bang Shift mercenary group. They all have secrets, but he has something they don’t—a sister to protect. As far as she knows, he’s just a mechanic with a typical southern-boy past, and he’ll do what he can to guard her from the realities of his life. He should’ve known trouble would find her anyway…and that she’d dump the beautiful problem right in his lap.
When Maya Carmichael’s car is vandalized on a night out with her roommate, she realizes her no-more-jerks oath is too little, too late. Knowing her sadistic ex is behind this, she agrees to seek shelter out of town, but the temporary haven will throw her right into the path of another bad boy. Oh, she’s heard stories about her roommate’s brother, Hunter, and he’s just the type she wants to avoid. Hot. Hard. Hazardous.
What starts out as a beautiful nuisance exposes a web of danger so vast it could only be fueled by one thing. Revenge.
After finally getting out of her disastrous relationship, Maya Carmichael has sworn off all bad boys. Sure they’re hot. The attitude? No thanks. But when her car is vandalized while on a night out with her roommate, she realizes her ex is truly sadistic. Her friend insists they lay low for a few days while the cops do their thing. Unfortunately her temporary haven will throw her in the path of another bad boy. Oh, she’s heard stories about her roommate’s brother, Hunter, and he’s just the type she wants to avoid. Until she sees him … and all good intentions fly out of her busted windshield.
Hunter Anderson might be the easygoing jokester within the Bang Shift crew—the small Arkansas town’s mechanics and the government’s secret mercenaries—but underneath his lighthearted exterior lurks demons of a past he’d love nothing more than to forget. Working on cars and taking the occasional contracted mission help, but he fears nothing will stop his past from coming back to haunt him. No one has tried penetrating the façade to get to the real person below. No one, until Maya.
The attraction is undeniable, but there’s more to Hunter than he can ever let on, and for Maya, this hot distraction makes it easy to forget the real danger she’s in. It has nothing to do with losing her heart to him.
When really it has everything to do with just that.
