Is love in the cards?
Since birth, Lexie Berry has had nothing but bad luck. Orphaned at an early age, she had a rough childhood and a boyfriend who was murdered. Now the beautiful, stylish Lexie is determined to change her luck and her life. But first she's got to make good on a promise: to pick up Ty Walker from prison. One look at the gorgeous ex-convict and Lexie knows she's in trouble-and already thinking about taking a walk on the wild side . . .
For five years, Ty was imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit. Now he wants revenge on the people who framed him. Yet when the high-stakes poker player sees the leggy Lexie, he suddenly has other desires on his mind. Realizing that Ty is innocent, Lexie tries to stop his plan for vengeance and help him become a better man. But as Ty battles his inner demons, dirty cops and criminals plot to take him out. Can he and Lexie find a way to escape the past?
“S**t, what’d I do that I walked outta that nightmare straight to you?” he murmured. “I don’t know,” I replied. “The same thing I did to drive out of mine straight to you.” Again, at my words, his big body stilled but this time it went completely still, immobile, like he wasn’t even breathing. “Though, I took a detour to the beach,” I added. And that was when I knew Lady Luck had started to like me. Because three seconds later, Ty Walker threw back his head and burst out laughing. And I got to watch.”Ty and Lexie
“So something has to give because there’s a bitch in this town who needs a lesson and I’m the teacher.”Lexie
“Then he said, “Your nightmare, mama, was my dream.”My heart clenched. He kept going. “Never had a home until you gave me one.” My breath started sticking. “Never had anyone give to me the way you gave to me.” My breath stopped sticking and clogged. “Never thought of findin’ a woman who I wanted to have my baby.” Oh God.“Never had light in my life, never, not once, I lived wild but I didn’t burn bright until you shined your light on me.” Oh God. “Whacked, fuckin’ insane, but, at night, you curled in front of me, didn’t mind I did that time that wasn’t mine ‘cause it meant I walked out to you.” He had to stop. He had to. He didn’t. “Your nightmare,” he whispered, turned his head and against my neck he finished, “my dream.””Lexie and Ty
““Baby?” he called and he felt her eyes on him.“Yeah?” she replied, her sweet voice soft, another tone he was getting used to and this was because the last couple of days it had started to come at him often.“Do me a favor?”“Sure.”“In a second, I’m gonna pull over, get out my gun and give it to you. When I do, shoot me with it.”“What?” she whispered.“I’m facin’ another hour and a half of your music. I’d rather be dead.”Silence then, “Shut up.””Lexie and Ty
““I need another dick in this house and soon before the whole fuckin' place is painted pink and I slip on a glitter pen and break my neck.””Ty
