Juggling two jobs and mounting bills, Audrey decides she doesn't have time for a boyfriend, but contemplates a friends plus situation. After placing a personal ad, she meets Mike, a local cop, former Marine. He's old fashioned and overbearing, but she just can't walk away.
Unfortunately for her, Michael is an expert marksman, and her heart never stood a chance. Their tumultuous love affair crashes to an ending neither foresaw, and Audrey is forced to make a decision that will change both their lives forever.

About her: Audrey graduated college with a Bachelor in History and went on to receive her Master’s in Military history. After working for several grant projects through the New Jersey Historical Society, Audrey landed her dream job- preserving Civil War weapons. On the first day of her job, she was told that the project had been shut down by the state. Audrey now works as a waitress at Romeo’s Diner at night and stocks shelves at Bargain Buys overnight with her friend Calvin. She is the estranged daughter of Multimillionaire CEO Maxwell and Carol Hoffinger. At this point, it is unknown why she has cut nearly all ties with them, instead living in her mobile home instead of her parent’s sprawling estate. Audrey starts the story out looking for a friend to have casual sex with. She, however, meets Mike, a man far more than she had bargained for.

About him: Michael is a police officer for the Mercerville Police Department (the town they live in). He was in the Marines before that, but Michael is always vague on the details except that he is an expert sniper, and that he met his best friend, John while serving. He has lingering pain from his mother abandoning him, and his father’s alcoholic binges which Audrey notices nearly immediately. He’s a speed junky, loving fast vehicles. Michael had no intention of ever meeting Audrey, but was pushed into meeting Audrey by John.
