Boa, the Serpents cyber genius, never thought waiting on line for a hot and juicy in Mickey D’s would turn his life upside down—Until Madeline—The knockout stripper from the Shangri-La who had a rap sheet longer than Boa’s.
Madeline knows the hard punches life dishes out. She’s packed up her and her boys more than once searching for a better life. When she hit Vegas she had high hopes until a vengeful enemy from her past pops up, sending her life straight to hell.
Boa wants to be her hero, but she resists his help, saying it’s for his own good. Only he doesn’t buy it. She’s in deep with the wrong people, and even her tough, screw-you-attitude can’t disguise the fear in her eyes.
Fate keeps throwing them together, and after a night of crazy, out-of-control sex Boa vows to break down her walls and find out what’s under all her sass.
To keep Boa safe, Madeline denies her true feelings, packs up her family, and runs again to hide the wicked secrets of her past, but when her children are put at risk, she reaches out to the only man she can trust. Boa.
Can Boa save Madeline and her kids, or will Madeline’s need for retribution put them all in danger?
He rested his palms on her hips and pulled her even closer. He wanted her to feel what her standing in front of him did to his body, how her breathing had his cock at attention. This woman was wearing down his last nerve.
Boa lowered his head to right above her ear. “Get naked. I wanna see all of you.”
"You’ve seen all of me at the strip club. Plenty of times.”
Her words were meant to diminish the moment, take away the awe, but he wasn’t buying it.
"Ain’t gonna work, babe. Seeing you topless in that club means nothing to me. Having you here in my arms is what matters, and when I touch your soft, bare skin, it’ll be like the first time.”
Her breathing hitched, and he examined her face. For a second, he thought he’d seen tears, but the moment passed, and her back stiffened.
“You can’t wave a magic wand and make everything right. That’s not how life works, and it’s sure not how my life works.”
“Whether you wanna admit it or not, you’re working for a psycho, but something tells me you already know that.”
She lowered her head against his chest, and her body relaxed. When she raised her head, her olive eyes warmed. The conflicts within Madeline were real, and he hoped he could make her see that life didn’t have to be this damn hard.
