When I was nineteen years old, I was faced with a choice that changed my life.
Keep the safety of what I already knew or risk losing everything with the young, hotheaded soldier who stole my heart.
I chose the wrong man, and for seventeen years, I paid in tears, blood, and shattered dreams for that decision.
Now, there’s a man in my house, holding a gun to my head on the order of my ex-husband—given from his prison cell.
That hotheaded soldier I was too afraid to choose? He’s now a six-foot-three wall of muscle who works at the country’s most premier bodyguard agency. I’ve always wanted him, but now, I’ve never needed him more.
It’s the call I’m terrified to make.
I’m sure he still hates me… Even though I’ve never stopped loving him.

Aly Martinez is one of those authors I can truly say, I have liked everything that I have read. She once again gives us outstanding characters that make mistakes, they have flaws but she makes them draw you into their lives as if you were part of the book. This second change love did just that, it was like a slow burn that drew me in and then wham the excitement and rush hits and you just can't put it down. Needing to know that they make it through the challenges.
Mira was you and naive when Jeremy was in her life the first time. She had to choose and for all intense purposes she choose badly. But hindsight is something you don't have at the beginning. She is strong and determined to crawl out of the hells that are Kurt Benton. This would not be an easy task and in the end drives her to contacting the one person she hopes will still care enough to help. Scared out of her mind after the way she treated him all those years ago, she never dreamed he would truly help. Could he be the same person she once knew?
Jeremy Lark had worked hard to make something for himself after be released from the Army, determined to have the things he didn't have growing up. He had found his way, working at something he was good at and loved to do. His twin girls were his everything and he loved feirce, but then we knew that even when he was in his 20's. So when the phone is for him and it is her voice he hears on the other end.... he can't not help. Even though his heart is fighting a instant battle between anger and want.
Can the alpha, strong men of Guardian Security help Mira rid herself from Kurt Benton for good this time? Will she find the lost love she once had with Lark, or has that ship sailed for good?

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.
Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.
She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
