Once he’s free, it takes him twenty-four hours to get his old job back, his dog at home where he belongs, and an understanding that people aren’t as forgiving as he once thought them to be. He’s just about given up hope of ever integrating back into society when a woman slams into his heart, literally and figuratively.
Kennedy Swallow just wants to belong somewhere.
When she was younger, her parents divorced, and chose to separate her from her twin. Fast forward fifteen years, and she’s finally getting to meet the family she’s always wanted to be a part of. To make that happen, she uproots her life and moves to the tiny town of Hostel, Texas—giving her almost everything she’s ever wanted.
Just when she thinks she’s making progress in winning her family over, she finds out that her twin is ill, and the only reason her family tolerates her is due to the convenience of having a free caretaker whenever they might be in need of one.
After a few eye-opening experiences, she quickly realizes that she’s being used. Vowing to herself that she’ll make the best of the situation, she begins to steel her heart. What she doesn’t prepare for is a man named Evander who sees that barrier as a challenge.
It takes Evander all of ten seconds while watching the woman on the floor, bleeding from her jaw, to realize that maybe life isn’t as bad as it could be.
This woman with her thrill for life, a crazy obsession with chickens, and a desire to be wanted, changes everything he thinks he knows.
But it doesn’t take long for him to realize that just by being around her, the people of the town have judged her guilty by association.
Her business suffers, and soon after, she realizes what it will mean to have him by her side—the loss of everything she’s worked so hard for.
Kennedy knows that Evander is worth it. Evander, however, decides that he’s not letting another person get hurt because he was stupid enough to care.

This couple good lord life has thrown a bunch of crap their way.
Poor Kennedy what family members she had left treated her horribly! She lost so many loved ones and was left with miserable excuses for relatives. She was better off alone with her animals.
Evander recently released from prison and was trying to get his life back. But close minded small town people are not giving him a very nice Welcome Back. So he spends most his time with his dog.
Well how perfect for each other are they!!!
A romance built between strangers and I loved watching their various interactions around town.
His need to help and protect her was immediate even though he tried to fight his feelings.
She was attracted to him immediately but was scared and stand-offish.
Once they were together they were HOT and inseparable. Standing beside each other through a crazy mess of crime and even murder!
Sometimes the Good Guys are really the Bad Guys and the “criminal” is the Hero.
Can’t wait for the next one!
