He’s only a friend. 
Those words had haunted him from the moment Jessie James had heard them muttered from the one girl, above all others, that he thought had his back. 
Sixteen years later, he still feels those words like a brand on his soul. 
Lucky for him he has a son to take care of, a full-time job that demands every single second of the day, and not a single moment to spare for the likes of a woman that won’t stand up for him when he needs her the most. 
He’s only a friend. 
The words had slipped out of Ellen’s mouth, and before she could recall them or better yet, explain, Jesse is gone from her life for good, taking her heart with him. 
She tries to find her way out of the pit of despair, but not one single person, no matter how much she tries, can fill the void that he left in his wake. Time heals all wounds. Or at least that is how the saying goes. It’s a crock of crap, though.
Sixteen years pass when Jessie and Ellen see each other again without the influence of the town and bad memories surrounding them, and it’s as if not a single day has passed. 
Ellen knows the instant that her eyes see her old love that she’s still just as much in love with him today as she was all those years ago. The problem is that Jesse wants nothing to do with her. Or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself.


“The want, the need, the passion, the drama and ohhhh THE HAWT ALPHA MC MALE, and look he is on the cover of this book!!! lol Goodness this book gave me the feels and I would love for this book to go on and” - iScream Books
“The Dixie Warden Rejects MC or as I call it the Bearded MC series just keeps getting better and better and leaves us yearning for more in the end.” - Smashly Bookalicous Reviewing Chicks
“If you like second chance romances packed with emotion, drama, and action you will definitely want to read this one.” - Cat’s Guilty Pleasures

First love.
A second chance.
Two people from different worlds, but she never saw it that way - unless it was in front of her parents...
That's all it took to end their relationship, one slip of the tongue, meant to protect but it had the exact opposite affect.
Fast forward fourteen years Jessie's got a good life, it's not perfect but he's working hard to care for his son and keep a roof over their heads while prospecting.
The last person he wants to see is Ellen, he's held onto his anger for years but he's also never forgotten their time together or gotten over her.
Ellen on the other hand has spent 14 years miserable, not knowing why he disappeared or what she did wrong. He broke her and she's never been able to fully recover from that and move on.
Now their all grown up and in the same place, there's no reason two people who loved each other all those years ago can't be in the same place and either ignore each other or be civil right?

I couldn't wait to get Jessie & Ellen's story, these books just keep getting better. While I'll always have my favorite character, my favorite story in the series I can't help but fall for each new couple.
As always the writing is great, the story flows and kept me rooted in place until the end.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
