Landon Davies had worked hard to start his own restaurant. It was a very different path than most of his family had taken. He was one of the few family members that were not military or law enforcement. But his hard work had given him a restaurant that was beginning to take off when a woman’s scream in the alley outside his kitchen changed everything.
Kate Ellington had scratched, clawed, and outright fought for where she was in life. She was the first female passing game coordinator in professional football. Some people thought that made her the team’s weak link and a perfect target for exploitation. But Kate refused to cheat, even if it put her life in danger.
When Landon saved Kate in the alley, it didn’t just earn him a kiss. It earned him a target on his back. Now Landon isn’t just taking on restaurant critics, but the crime families who run the sports betting world. As Landon and Kate take the mafia on, they find their reputations, their lives, and their hearts are on the line.
