Five years ago, Embry Jacobs ran...
She ran from a past that still hasn’t let her go, but her dream of becoming a lawyer is stronger than her fear of confronting that past. Embry’s sole focus is to get through law school—with the help of her best friend, Morgan—and make something of the broken girl she became. Not thinking about falling in love, being in a relationship or even entertaining the idea of romance, Embry is moving forward one day at a time.
Luke Brody is charming and sexy, and has a past of his own. He wants nothing more than to put his demons to rest and move on with his life. But, when Embry enters the picture, is he destined to repeat those same mistakes?
Blindsided by their instant attraction, neither Luke nor Embry are prepared for the feelings they’re developing. But will it all be for nothing?
Will they let their pasts destroy them, or will they risk everything to fight for their relationship when it all comes undone?

“I’m Luke, by the way,” he said, holding out his hand. “Luke Brody.”
“Bree. Um, Embry Jacobs,” she said, placing her hand in his.
He bent his head, his soft lips brushing lightly across her knuckles as he kept his eyes trained firmly on hers. “Nice to meet you, Embry.”
She flushed from head to toe. The bartender ended their moment, setting down Embry’s drink. “Thanks,” she said.
“No problem.” The bartender smiled and walked away.
“So…” Embry said, turning her attention back to Luke. It came out as a strangled whisper. She cleared her throat and tried again. “So, do you go to Whitman?”
“Ah, no.” Luke rubbed the back of his neck, looking uncomfortable. “I’m an attorney.”
“But I’m working with one of the professors on a research project, so I’m in and out of the law school a bit.”
“That’s good.” Embry noticed he spoke in a slow, southern drawl. He didn’t come across as someone who grew up on Long Island. His accent definitely gave him away. “You’re not from around here, are you?”
He chuckled. “Is it that obvious?”
“Well, yeah,” Embry answered. He looked down. Oh my gosh, is he blushing?
Not wanting to embarrass him, Embry quickly added, “It’s a good thing though, trust me. And I like your accent.”
He smiled, his cobalt eyes lighting up. “I’m from Georgia, actually.”
Embry loved his voice and the way his eyes crinkled when he smiled, highlighting a single dimple on the left side of his face. She wanted him to keep talking.
“What brought you to New York?”
“Change of pace. An opportunity came up and I took it. What about you?”
“Oh, well I’m from here originally. I spent the last five years in Florida, though. I went to UF and then I moved to Jacksonville and worked for a few years. My best friend, Morgan, convinced me to come back home so we could go to law school together.”
He smiled and touched her hand. “Well, I’m glad she did.”
Embry didn’t know what to say so she just smiled and took him in. She couldn’t believe she was sitting here talking to this gorgeous man who, only a few hours ago, was just some hottie in a hallway.
“Like what you see, Bree?” his voice was husky, his eyes hooded.
Hypnotized by his gaze, she didn’t even think twice as she pulled her bottom lip between her teeth and nodded.
Luke flicked his eyes down to her mouth, licked his lips and slowly leaned toward her. Embry’s breath hitched at his movement and she held still, waiting to see what he would do. He lifted his hand, cupping her cheek. “You’re beautiful,” he whispered.
