The Fourth Book in the Coffee Shop Series
The small mountain town of Pineville had my heart from the moment I stepped in it. Maybe Benjamin Mercedy did too.
Too bad he’s way out of my league.
When things escalate to an unsafe situation at home, I have no choice but to ask the town MMA fighter to teach me self-defense.
When we’re together on that mat, there’s a whole lot more spark and bang than I thought. And if I didn’t know any better, I’d say Benjamin Mercedy is hiding some ghosts in his gloves.
Ghosts I’m ready to help tame.
What am I supposed to do? Serafina shows up with a fat lip and a request for a self-defense class. Of course I’ll help her.
Then everything changes.
She is bright-eyed brilliance in my cold, uncertain world. I can’t stay away, even if I wanted to. Serafina has her own devils to deal with, and it’s been a while since I’d had a good fight.
Then she edges her way into my past with her light and warmth and cookies, and my bruised heart doesn’t have a fighting chance.
Serafina is mine.
