Brentlee Johnson-Corbin has always followed her mother’s rules, even when it meant marrying a man she knew wasn’t her happily-ever-after.


Bates “Sniper” Lukin, a retired marine, now rides with the Notorious Devils—his street name earned in the deserts of hell.
When the most precious part of Brentlee’s world is threatened by the man who was meant to love them, she escapes to the only safe place she knows. But when she seeks the shelter of her sister, Kentlee, and her husband, Fury, her past steps in—and he’s determined to protect Brentlee and her daughter as his own.
Their story is one of love discarded, but Sniper won’t waste this opportunity to right the wrongs of his past.
Life has been cruel to them both, and Brentlee is certain that the love they lost is gone forever; but under his protective wing, she can’t deny that this rough and raw man might be just the hope she needs.



The title of this book describes everything you need to know. This book is filled with angst and heartbreak. It is a story of abuse and running for your life to survive and ending up running to the only man you every loved – even if he did leave you high and dry back in the day.
I didn’t read the first book but didn’t feel like I was missing anything and I truly loved Bates and Brentlee. They are both such broken souls just trying to survive. They are meant to be together, they just don’t know it. This book is about the turmoil one goes through to find their happily ever after, whatever that looks like. Hayley did a great job of writing such captivating characters and such angsty words. From the prologue, I was enthralled in the story and wanting to know what was going to happen. She made me feel like it was me in the story like my heart was being broken and it was absolutely amazing. I will definitely be going back to read book one and am looking forward to book 3.
