After serving his country, Lawson Masterson turned to bounty hunting, tracking fugitives alongside his two best friends. High-stakes skips are Gray Wolf Corp’s specialty. Chasing criminals and bringing them to justice is a dangerous job, and Lawson is determined to get his bounty no matter the cost.
Known as the playboy of Graystone and content with his bachelor status, Lawson doesn’t do relationships. He’s dedicated to living life to the fullest and having a good time—no strings attached.
Answer to no one.
Lawson tosses his rules out the window when the mysterious and timid Willow Keaton catches his eye. Aside from her beauty, there is something alluring about Willow that Lawson finds irresistible.
Willow Keaton struggled through her childhood years.
Her only dream—to one day have a better life.
Barely grown and wanting more for herself, Willow Keaton married a man promising to give her the world. Turned out, her new husband was nothing more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing, leaving her trapped in a loveless, controlling marriage with a broken spirit.
One day Willow finds the courage and strength needed to take back her life.
She finds herself in Graystone, Texas, with nothing more than the clothes on her back and a few dollars in her pocket.
Willow’s determination empowers her to make a fresh new start in the small town. Not even the smooth-talking playboy, Lawson Masterson, will distract her from starting over.
The further you run, the more exhausted you become, and the demons Willow left behind finally catch up to her.
The ultimate test of a man is who he will fight and die for. Lawson will give his last breath to keep Willow safe.
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
This is my first read from this writing duo and I am kicking myself for taking so long to jump in because wowwwwee!!! Lawson ticked all my boxes...romantic suspense, a strong heroine and protective hero that would do anything for his woman. While there were a few plot points that were started but never fully developed, it didn't detract too much.
I admired Willow's strength. She did what she needed to get herself out of a bad situation and was making it work the best she could. Her confidence was shaken but her new town gave her a warm welcome and rallied around her. No one more than Lawson.
The connection was instantaneous but getting Willow to listen to herself, trust her own instincts took a bit of work. It was Lawson's patience and gentle caring that allowed her to drop her walls and let him in. Too bad Willow's past wouldn't let her go quite yet.
There was more than one heart pounding moment that had me on edge as it played out in what seemed to be slow motion. From start to finish Willow and Lawson's journey was equal parts sweet and steamy. And that ending...has me eager to get back to Graystone and this group!
