There’s no such thing as a little in love . . .

Elle Wheaton’s priorities: friends, career, and kick-ass shoes. Then there’s the muscular wall of stubbornness that’s security expert Archer Hunt—who comes before everything else. No point in telling Mr. “Feels-Free Zone” that, though. Elle will just see other men until she gets over Archer . . . which should only take a lifetime . . .

There’s no such thing as a little in lust . . .

Archer’s wanted the best for Elle ever since he sacrificed his law-enforcement career to save her. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco earthquake and he craves her 24/7, but Archer doesn’t want to be responsible for the damage. The alternative? Watch her go out with guys who aren’t him . . .

There is such a thing as . . .

As far as Archer’s concerned, nobody is good enough for Elle. But when he sets out to prove it by sabotaging her dates, she gets mad—and things get hot as hell. Now Archer has a new mission: prove to Elle that her perfect man has been here all along . . .

With another match up of the Heartbreaker Bay gang, Jill Shalvis brings us Elle’s story!  The connection between her and Archer is not only sexy as sin, but it’s also sweet and comforting.  I really enjoy this group of friends.  They are always there for one another, and are always good for a few laughs as we see their interactions.

Elle Wheaten owes Archer Hunt a lot.  She came from a hard life, and when he chose to give up so much in order to rescue her from it, she took on the additional burden of knowing how much she had cost him.  It doesn’t stop her from constantly wanting him, but it makes her understand why he can’t possibly want her back.

Considering the circumstances when they met, Archer feels like his desire for Elle is wrong.  He’s worked hard to show indifference to her all of these years, but when he sees her starting to want more in her life, it drives him crazy to see her possibly reach for it with someone else!

Will these two stubborn people be able to put aside their pride long enough to see that the other loves them too?
