Crossing the Line By: Kele Moon
Battered Hearts #3
Wyatt Conner is a hard man. A sixth generation sheriff in his hometown of Garnet. A former MMA fighter. His life is about following the rules and making sure everyone else in Garnet follows them too.
Before life hurt him, Wyatt was different. Love had once blinded him to his upbringing and made him defiant against anyone who tried to separate him from the girl he loved. He easily broke laws to ensure her safety.
When she left it destroyed him. Now she’s back.
Tabitha knew coming home was a mistake, but family obligation demanded it. She wasn’t expecting to run smack into the love of her life the same day she returned.
Despite the danger, Tabitha is powerless against the wild rush of desire that explodes between them the moment she finds herself in Wyatt’s arms again. She needs a second chance too, but she can’t risk Wyatt finally discovering the real reason she left.
Even for another taste of true love.
Tabitha knows her haunted past will destroy both of them if Wyatt finds out. What she suffered through was too terrible and it’s the one thing that will have him crossing the line for revenge.
Wyatt has loved Tabitha and wanted to be with her for as long as he can remember. Tabitha has wanted Wyatt and loved him for a long time.
Wyatt is a protector. He will kill for Tabby if he has to but she would never want him to. After fighting with him one night she goes home and the unthinkable happens to Tabby. After going to the hospital she gets worried that he will in fact kill for her so she runs from him. Leaving everyone in the town to believe the worst about her rather then ricking Wyatt’s future.
When she is forced back to town to care for her mother will the secret come out? How will she survive seeing Wyatt? Does she even deserve a HEA?
I love Wyatt’s protective side. Love that when Tabby goes away she becomes stronger. This story goes through Wyatt and Tabby growing up. You learn a lot about them and might even understand the choices that Tabby makes. Makes you wonder if you were in that same situation would you choose the same?
So obsessed is she with the beauty of romance and the novelty of creating it, she’s lost in her own wonder world most of the time. Thankfully she married her own dark, handsome, brooding hero who has infinite patience for her airy ways. The two of them now reside in Florida with their three beautiful children, who make their lives both fun and challenging in equal parts. . . They wouldn’t have it any other way.
The stranger ends up being Clay Powers, a famous UFC heavyweight fighter. Clay’s large build and dangerous fists have always intimidated. People in his hometown keep their distance and Clay is fine with that. Everything changes when a new waitress at the local diner buys him a piece of pie on thanksgiving. Touched by the gesture when it’s obvious she can barely afford to survive, her warm smile and lush body churn up powerful feelings that leave Clay wanting more from her than pie.
Melody is running from her past and the small, country town of Garnet is the perfect hiding place. With an ex-husband after her and scars from her abusive marriage etched deep, the last thing she expects is to fall for a man who makes a living with his fists, but she can’t resist Clay or the tender connection they share.
Finding love in the most unlikely of places, the passion is undeniable, but Clay and Melody know their haunted pasts and unpredictable futures leave the odds stacked against them.
