Growing up on the Program campus, Peter Shepard always knew he’d become a soldier. But he’s hungry to sample the outside world, and maybe even a woman, before he begins basic training. He gets his wish when a chance meeting leads him into the arms of Allison Macclesfield—a beautiful free spirit and the first woman to make him question the structured life that lies before him.
Allison is ready for adventure, sampling whatever pleasures life throws at her as she pursues a music career. She’s intrigued by the mystery surrounding Peter, and the instant chemistry between them makes her more than willing to show him everything he’s been missing. But hooking up with Peter comes at a price.
When their growing desire turns to thoughts of devotion, Peter and Allison will be forced to make a very adult decision: to stick to their plans and follow their old dreams or to give up everything for a chance to build a new life together. And both may have to face the harsh truth that sometimes you have to sacrifice what you want most for the person you love.
Desperate Match: A Friends to Lovers Romance (Coded for Love Book 4)
by Lynne Silver on 2019-03-26
With no money, no job, and no friends, Jill Thompson has little hope of escaping her abusive husband’s violent outbursts—until she hears about the Program. Desperate for a safe haven, she flees to their compound. What she finds there is Rowan Blacker, a ruggedly handsome man whose powerful presence hides a kind and gentle heart.
The newest member of the Program, Rowan hasn’t yet connected with his comrades and sometimes feels like an outsider. When Jill shows up at the compound begging for help, he recognizes that she, too, knows what it’s like to not fit in, and he’s overcome by an instinctive desire to protect her and gain her trust. As she slowly opens herself to Rowan, their attraction ignites into a burning passion that will bind them forever.
