Blurb:

Opposites attract in the third Ace Security novel from New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker.
Bailey Hampton will do whatever it takes to keep both herself and her little brother safe from the vicious Inca Boyz gang. Hiding out in Castle Rock, Colorado, is only a temporary solution until she can earn enough money to get out of the state altogether. But when she meets handsome security nerd Nathan Anderson, she discovers a reason to stay and fight for what she wants.
Ace Security’s Nathan Anderson has always been the “numbers guy,” not the man any of the firm’s clients look to when their safety is threatened. But from the first time he ran into Bailey, she never made him feel like less of a protector than his brothers. Nathan was attracted to the petite, black-haired pixie with wild tattoos from the start, and by some miracle, she seems to return his interest.
But danger stalks Bailey and her brother, so it’s up to Nathan to channel his inner alpha and find a way to end the threat to their lives once and for all—and he’s not giving up Bailey without a fight.

Excerpt:

“Yo! Sis! We going or what?”

Nathan turned his head to see a boy with black hair hanging out the window of a classic car. He had no idea what make it was—he really didn’t know cars—but it looked sleek, shiny, and well cared for. The kid’s upper body was hanging out of the front seat, his hands braced on the window frame.

The woman in front of him didn’t respond, but reached around and pulled a card out of her back pocket. “Your car really does need some work. I’m happy to help. I work at Clayson Auto Body off Wolfensberger Road. It’s a bit out of the city, but if you’re interested . . .”

Nathan immediately held out his hand and took the business card. “I’m interested. I’ll call for an appointment tomorrow.”

She nodded and gave him a small smile. It wasn’t the smirk that had been on her face earlier. The one meant to keep people away. This was genuine and open.

“I’ll make sure to tell my boss you’ll be calling . . .” Her voice trailed off once more, this time in an obvious attempt at getting his name.

“Nathan. Nathan Anderson,” he readily supplied, expecting her to reciprocate.

“Later, Nathan.” She nodded at him and backed away toward her car.

Nathan opened his mouth to say something else, anything to prolong their chat, but she’d turned away and was striding confidently toward her car. He took a moment to admire her ass in the tight jeans as she walked, but didn’t say another word as she climbed into the driver’s side and drove out of the parking lot without another look back.

Reluctantly, and rather bemusedly, Nathan closed the hood of his car and got back inside. This time Marilyn started up without any issues, just as the woman said she would.

Looking down at the business card in his hand, Nathan swore he could still feel the heat of her body in the paper. Clayson Auto Body. There was a picture of a car with its hood up on the front along with the address, phone number, and e-mail of the business. He turned it over absently and froze.

Written on the back was a hastily scrawled note that simply said, Tell ’em Bailey sent you.

It was obviously something she’d written ahead of time on all the cards she carried, but that wasn’t what stopped Nathan in his tracks.

Bailey.

Was it a coincidence that the woman he’d been searching for over the last few months was also named Bailey? He and Alexis hadn’t found hide nor hair of Donovan’s ex-girlfriend. And they’d looked.
