Dare to Kiss (The Maxwell Series Book 1)
by S.B. Alexander
FIRST SHE PULLS A GUN ON HIM. THEN SHE SLUGS HIM. IT’S THE BEGINNING OF A BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP…
She’s so not the “popular girl” type–at least not with the popular girls. But she makes male friends easily. Just not with sexy, moody Kade Maxwell, whom she distrusts on sight. And yet…she’s drawn to him both as a person–a mysterious, yet kind person–and in a blind visceral way she’s never known before, not with her last boy friend, not with the array of handsome teammates flocking around her, not even with hot quarterback Tyler, whose friendship with her has the cheerleaders sharpening their claws.
Once Kade gets over the gun and the shiner (just a misunderstanding!), he doesn’t want to let Lacey out of his sight. Because Kade has his own dark past. He and Lacey sense in each other that they’ve both experienced something too horrible to mention–and yet, each guards his or her own private tragedy like a state secret. Until their carefully constructed walls start to crumble. And then the mutual sparks ignite, creating a bonfire of love, hope, and passion.
But love may not be enough–Lacey has enemies not only in her old hometown, but also in Ashford. She can’t forget that the last girl who played varsity baseball in her new school was killed, supposedly in an accident. And that the same team members who harassed and bullied her are now mounting an attack against the new pitcher in town–none other than Lacey herself. She and Kade–and his triplet brothers–must fight their way not only through past tragedy and PTSD, but also through these very real current threats before they can forge a future together.
