My life is all about calculated risks, when to push the throttle and when to ease back so when I meet Kyle Garret one night in a bar near Miramar, I let him win me over with his charming wit and enigmatic smile even though my gut tells me that I’m headed for a crash…
I came on vacation to reclaim my independence, not to end up with another man, but the universe had other plans when it put an ex-Navy SEAL in the condo next door.
The moment Riker walks up, I sense something familiar about him.
I try to keep my distance, knowing that anything that comes of it will be temporary.
But it seems the harder I try, the more everything goes wrong, and I find myself relying on him more and more.
At the end of the week, we’ll be separated by hundreds of miles. Will our brief encounter flourish into something that can bring us together again?
Or will it fade into memory?
