Life has a way a throwing curve balls at every turn. I'm Eli "Mox" Moxen and I've finally figured out what I want in life.
I’m fearless. In life, in my career, and in love. I'll face it all with strength and determination.
Just when I think I'm getting ahead, something comes along to knock me on my butt. I'm Amber Young, single mom, jaded in love, and in danger.
I refuse to fail. For my daughter and for myself, I refuse to fail at life, in my career, and in love.
For first responders like Mox, there is rarely a second chance for anything...except maybe love. This is Mox's chance to show Amber he's a man who also refuses to fail...especially when it comes to her heart.
5 Stars from Renee!
I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, secrets, pain, suspense, danger, twists & turns, and heartbreak.
This is Amber and Mox’s story. Amber is a single mother trying to provide for her and her daughter. She has no time for dating. But Mox makes her crave more. When her family is threatened she will do anything to protect and keep them safe. That means allowing Mox in to help her protect. Mox has never done commitment but this woman will make him rethink that. He is not the same man she knew years ago and he is going to prove it. But he must keep her safe first. With the threat hanging over them can they stay safe long enough to explore a future together? Or will the danger make staying safe not an option? Can these two protect each other from the danger?
I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.
I highly recommend this book.
5 Stars from Brianna!
S.M. Donaldson won me over with her MMA boys a while ago so it was a no brainer on this new spin off series, Dispatch 247. Sexy. Sweet. Suspenseful. Captivating. Donaldson took me on quite the unforgettable journey that was packed with heat and heart, cover to cover.
Arrested Heart is a brand new standalone full of second chances and one beautiful happy ending. Mox and Amber made me fall fast and hard, just like them, leaving me on the edge of my seat most of the book.
She's a single mom, working to provide a good life for herself and her young daughter. Dating is the last thing on her mind but Mox has a way of pulling her in, making her want more. And when her family is threatened, she'll do anything to keep them safe... including letting Mox in.
He doesn't do commitments and keeps it loose, never sticking around. SWAT by day, playboy by night... unobtainable is his game. But when Amber blasts back into his life after all those years ago, he knows it's his chance to get the girl. He's not the same guy from high school and this time he's playing for keeps.
But danger lurks at every corner and threatens to take it all away. No one is safe... not even Mox. Action packed and a real page turner, Mox and Amber will show you the power of family and love.
Get ready for one journey that will have you asking for more after the pages quit turning.
I recommend this book.
S.M. Donaldson is a born and raised Southern girl. She grew up in a small rural town on Florida’s Gulf Coast, the kind of place where everyone knows your business before you do, especially when your Daddy is a cop and your Mom works for the school system. She married one of her best friends at the age of 20 and has one son. She is a proud military wife, has always had a soft spot for a good story, and is known to have a potty mouth. At the age of 31, she decided there was no time like the present to attempt her first book. Sam’s Choice was born and she hasn’t stopped since. If you are looking for a good, steamy, Southern set romance with true Southern dialect, she’s your girl.
