Half-Broke Heart

Combat Hearts #2.5
 A Combat Hearts series novella.

Denise Reynolds is used to putting up a good front the show the world a strong, capable woman, but keeps a lot of things buried deep.
Chris Nolton is everything she learned the hard way to avoid — a sexy alpha-male who could charm her out of her pants and work his way into her heart. If history has taught her anything, it’s a deadly combination, but he manages to dig up emotions and longing she’s tried to bury for years.
He says all the right things and pushes her boundaries in all the right ways. Letting her guard down is difficult, especially since believing all the right things in the past led to unimaginable consequences.
Being content with her life may no longer be an option, but risking her heart may bring her to her knees.
*Half-Broke Heart picks up in the middle of Stitched Up Heart and is not intended to be read as a standalone novel
