Heâ€™s faced down every demonâ€¦except one fast-talking Southern girl.
Petal, Georgia, Book 2
It hasnâ€™t been easy for Joe Harris to live down his not-so-honorable past, but the military made him a better man. Heâ€™s determined to make up for past mistakes, starting with coming home to care for his ailing father.
Things are going as planned until his best friendâ€™s little sister comes barreling into his life. Funny, quick talking, smart, beautiful, sheâ€™s a temptation he triesâ€”and failsâ€”to resist.
When Beth Murphy hears Joe is back in town, she makes sure sheâ€™s the first on his welcoming committee. Though he tries to pretend heâ€™s gruff and unworthy of her, she sees the man who spoils his dog, who touches her like sheâ€™s precious. Cherished. But thereâ€™s one wall she canâ€™t break downâ€”the truth about whatâ€™s happening at home.
On the night the nature of his fatherâ€™s illness becomes painfully, publicly apparent, Joe does the right thingâ€”push Beth as far away as possible. But if he thought sheâ€™d go away quietly, heâ€™s about to learn sheâ€™s made of sterner stuff.
