She was the one person who could convince him, without pleading her case, that he’d been dead wrong. Justice wasn’t a sharp sword but a dull blade, and sometimes, it did more damage than good as it sliced through to the truth.
Sheriff’s Deputy Jake Kermarrec has a strict interpretation of right and wrong, and if you end up in jail, justice obviously prevailed. Being a cop is what he knows, and the only thing he aspires to. When he’s a hero and his career is at risk, he turns to Marlee Cruiz for relief. Their physical attraction becomes harder to ignore with each session of massage, despite the rules and secrets between them.
The closer they become, though, the more difficult it is for either of them to turn away. Marlee’s past slowly unravels, and Jake finds himself questioning his rigid beliefs, even as his friends and family begin to question his judgment. As shocking news multiplies, he finds himself making bigger excuses on her behalf. When it counts, will he put his commitment to protect and serve on the line for Marlee?
