What do you do when the person you love most in the world breaks your heart… twice? Grant’s solution is avoiding relationships. Four years since the last time he saw Rachelle, his heart still can’t take another break. 

“You’re not marriage material.” From the time he’d first heard those words spoken by the woman he loved, Grant Carpenter believed them.

When a woman he’s known for years shows an interest in him, he starts to question Rachelle’s words about marriage material, wondering if he might need a second opinion. Someone in the present, someone who has always been in the periphery but who he never gave a second glance, starts to take over his every thought. 

Grant is armed with plenty of reasons to ignore what he’s feeling, but someone who should remain off-limits is suddenly overshadowing his obsession with his past. She’s making him want a future that he thought he’d written off, but he isn’t sure that she wants a future with him.

Ultimately, he has to decide what to do when the past makes her way back into his present.

This is a standalone novel that is a spin-off of SIDE EFFECTS and is told from the point of view of Quinn’s brother, Grant.



I had a fairly good idea of what women wanted.
It wasn’t some magic formula like most men thought. They just wanted a little attention paid their way.
Some wanted the bad boy. Others wanted the nice guy.
I’d spent so much time playing the roles they wanted that I’d started to lose sight of who I actually was. I tended toward the cocky asshole more often than not, but one thing was clear: Women wanted me, and I did everything I could to make myself available to them.
I had only three requirements when it came to women.
First, they had to drink. (Drinking lowers inhibitions.) I never trusted people who didn’t drink.
Second, they had to be hot.
Finally, they had to be single.
I preferred blondes with long legs, but I was never one to limit myself to one type.
