As Darby Dixon sits in a tiny Texas church bathroom on her wedding day holding a positive pregnancy test, she realizes that of all the bad decisions she’s made in her life, marrying her abusive fiancé would be the worst. She’s never been able to stand up for herself, but she’ll sure as hell stand up for her baby. With just the cash she has on hand, she runs to get a bus ticket to the farthest place she can afford. Between her sheer grit and pageant-queen smile, she lands a job as a front desk clerk at the Colorado Springs Hotel. It’s not a glamorous life, but she and her baby are all that matters.
A former Marine, Scott “Trex” Trexler has worked in the most dangerous, corrupt, war-torn places on earth. Now he finally has a chance to return to the last place he’d felt at peace–Colorado Springs, Colorado, to take a new job with the Cheyenne Mountain Complex, a top-secret military installation buried deep within the granite.
The moment Trex walks into the inn, Darby knows he’s dangerous. There’s no way she wants to get involved with another man who seems to be keeping way too many secrets. As charming and devastatingly gorgeous as Trex is, he clearly isn’t telling her everything. But as wildfires rage on the mountain and Darby’s ex-fiancé shows he isn’t so willing to let her go, both she and Trex are soon to find out that what you don’t know absolutely can hurt you.
CJR THE BRIT REVIEW
An angsty story of strength and love.
Darby escaped. She did it. And watching her bloom was indescribable.
‘Saying no was my new superpower, and I would use it every time I had the chance, from now on.’
Trex is where Darby is for his job and he is determined to break through to Darby as he falls hard. But his job is mystery city, top secret!
When I said above this story is angsty, it so is. I knew what was coming and I was dreading it. So get your legs ready as you’ll be on the edge of your seat! I did think some parts were dragged out but it was still a fab read and I couldn’t put it down!
And you get glimpses of the Maddox twins!
