He can fight anything…except his need for her.
Until her new job starts in September, buttoned-up elementary school teacher Laurel Harris is at loose ends and in need of cash. Fortunately her best friend’s older brother is a single dad and desperately needs a nanny. Or so she’s told. She doesn’t anticipate him being such a menacing, muscled, and undeniably gorgeous man…or that he has zero interest in hiring a nanny.
Micah Crane will do right by his young daughter, no matter the cost. And right now, that cost is juggling parenthood with long hours at his bar and working as an enforcer for a notorious crime boss. He doesn’t need another complication in his life, but the sweet, frustratingly opinionated little blonde hell-bent on caring for his daughter stirs his blood like no woman ever has.
All it takes is a moment of weakness to ignite the lust blazing between them. A moment that will unravel their self-control and unleash all of Micah’s darkest secrets…
A young single father, Micah, finds himself tied to the mob, meets his salvation in a dreamer, a soon to be teacher, Laurel.
Micah's life goal has been to dig himself and his daughter off the wrong side of the tracks. Being the mob enforcer was his only choice to keep food on his table and his str... ...more

When Entangled asked me to write this book, I didn't realize how much I would end up connecting with the hero, Micah Crane. Not because he is a fighter (I'm actually the calmest person you'll probably ever meet), but because of the sheer desperation to do right by the one thing he holds dearest t... ...more
I loved this one! I thought the story was fresh and unique and while Micah was a bit of a jerk, I'm not sure the story would be believable if he were any other way. It's a quick easy read that once I started, I had to finish! A bit on the mellow side for the sexy times we've come to expect in Bra... ...more

I loved this book!!!! The storyline is unique and different from anything I have read in a very long time.

What do you get when you put a single dad and crime syndicate enforcer with a quiet school teacher who needs a temporary job? You get enough sparks to light up stadium and a story that will have you glued to the pages till you finish with a big fat goofy grin.

You have to fall in love with Micah Crane. Anyone that can demonstrate the love that he has for his little girl can’t be all bad. Even if he is a messed up jerk whose second job is an enforcer, beating up late payers to a crime boss. Laurel Harris is of the same opinion as me... ...more
Man, how I love me some Micah Crane.
What I loved about this book is that it was pretty much, realistic.
Micah Crane is a normal, blue collar guy who co-owns a bar while raising his daughter, alone. He also, on the side, acts as an enforcer for the mob however, that part of the story is not over p... ...more
I was a bit mixed on how many stars I was going to give this book. I didn't love it so much that I rushed to call my sister about it (that is usually what happens!)

This isn't a super complex book/plot to read. It's straightforward, sexy hot and fun! Micah is a big tough badass, but I adored him from the start. There was just something about the tough demeanor one second, then soft as a marshmallow as soon his daughter walked through the door that really sto... ...more
