My three bridesmaid friends were amazing. They’d spun into action dispersing the guests while I sat, numb. Now we’re driving to the closest dive bar at my request, and I feel lots of things.

Because that party? Everyone knows it chews innocent women up and spits them out, broken. The locals stay well away.

Can running from love keep your heart safe?
Jackson “Jax” Hartley has always been a ride or die kind of guy, escaping the series of foster homes he grew up in to ride his bicycle and, later, his motorcycle anywhere the road would take him.
But he learned too well during his years in the Army that sometimes rides end with your best friend dying in your arms.
Ever since, he’s kept everyone at an arm’s length, even his ex-military motorcycle club members. Because he’s pretty sure that it’s his fault his friend’s dead. He refuses to let that happen to anybody else he cares about.
It’s better to keep to himself.
It’s safer that way.
But when a runaway horse leads him to another kind of riding — and a curvy older woman that he can’t seem to stop thinking about — he wonders if he’s got it all wrong.
Maybe some things aren’t anybody’s fault.
And maybe the biggest mistake a man can take is cutting himself off from friendship and love.
But is he brave enough to take the risk to find out?
