Angie is a survivor. Anything you could throw at her, she could overcome. After her father left her like a pile of unwanted trash, she began fighting. Fighting to build a life. Fighting to keep her child. Fighting to matter. She thought she had it all figured out. Then Bowen Race Tannenbaum walks into her life, turning it into a flurry of confusion, hope, and then ultimately despair. He tore down, brick-by-brick, her carefully constructed world, leaving her heart in tatters and longing for more. Such as a happily ever after, something that wasn't ever going to happen for her. Not when she couldn't give him what he wanted. He'd break her, and she couldn't be put back together a second time. Bowe wasn't always so jaded, but when you keep drawing a losing hand, it tends to affect a man. He didn't mean to lash out so carelessly. But he was so over being told no. He was done being lied to. He through with being cheated on. This time, his heart was getting what it wanted. If Angie wasn't able to see what he was offering, what was right here in front of her, well then, he'd just have to damn well show her.

July Dupree and Dean 'PD' Hargrove fell head over heels in love. When PD comes home to tell July the good news about joining the SWAT team as a tactical medic, everything changes. July can't fathom why PD would want to be a cop in this day and age. Wasn't it enough that he already had a dangerous job with the fire department? Now he has to add another, even more dangerous, job to the equation? With so many cruel people in the world who make a sport out of hurting cops just because of the badge they wear, she has to make him understand. But when he refuses to listen to her reasoning, she feels she has no other choice but to issue an ultimatum: her or the SWAT team. Dean doesn't like ultimatums. He's furious with July for putting him in the awful position of having to choose between a dream and her. July never believes for a second that he'd choose the SWAT team over her, but she is wrong. A year later, they're both still in love with each other, but neither one is willing to budge regardless of their feelings. July's feelings for Dean haven't changed, in fact her love for him has only grown. But seeing him living his life seemingly unaffected by the loss of what they had breaks her heart over and over each time she sees him. Dean has a good poker face, though. He's just going through the motions of his life until finally, the smoldering embers of his feelings erupt into a full-on blaze of emotion, burning through everything but his love for July. When the smoke clears, Dean wants to know if they can reignite the fire of their love or is he destined to live his life in a constant state of controlled burn?

The road to hell is paved with good intentions... Apple "Core" Drew needs The Uncertain Saints MC like he needs air. He is barely making it through the day, and each one that goes by takes him closer and closer to hell. Literally, not figuratively. He's a half breath away from killing himself-maybe not by taking his own life, but he's not against making someone else do it for him. Then he meets her. One of his club member's sister, and his whole outlook on life changes. And not for the better. Just as surely as he ruined his life, he ruins her life, too. One lapse in judgement on his part, and his one night of happiness turns into the worst nine months of his life. Which he would've thought was damn near impossible with the things he's done and seen. She never saw it coming... It was the beard. The beard made her do it. That is a good excuse for having sex with a man she barely knows, isn't it? Yeah, who was she kidding? It wasn't the beard. It was the way he looked so dejected and solemn. The sad look in his eyes pulls her in, and the way his rough hands touch her makes her stay. All she wants to do is take that look out of his eyes, but the consequences to her actions only make things worse, not better. One day is all she gets, and he's not willing to give her more. Until she dies, that is. Then it's too late.

No take-backs. That was the motto that Drew lived by in all things, including his love life. He's a player, pure and simple. He's learned the hard way that women aren't all hearts and flowers. Sometimes their sexy bodies and beautiful faces are just a pretty shield to hide the crazy, and he's so freakin' over crazy. Been there, done that. He has the divorce papers to prove it. Karma hits like a bitch. Aspen needs a break. A long one that doesn't include anything with a Y chromosome. Not even one as tempting as her new neighbor who just moved in across the street. Men are trouble with a capital freakin' T, and she has the ankle monitor to prove it. The last man she gave her heart to was a police officer. A man whose life was dedicated to protection; he was supposed to protect her heart-not break it. She decides right then and there that she's done with being the better person. Everything happens for a reason. A rash decision-undoubtedly regrettable, undeniably unforgettable. In the heat of the moment, Aspen's actions with a tire iron and her ex-boyfriend's brand new SUV land him in the ER getting stitches and have her seeing the inside of a jail cell for the first time. It's just her luck that the whole town is there to witness the result of her poor decision, including her police officer brother and the neighbor that already made it more than clear she was more trouble than she was worth. House arrest never looked so good. Hide your crazy. Drew enjoyed the show, though. For the first time in a year, he's thinking about his life, and how it would be a lot more enjoyable with a woman like Aspen at his side. Maybe crazy isn't so bad after all.
