|| Former Navy SEAL Grant Anderson failed to see the IED that took his lower leg and couldn't fix the cracks that ended his marriage. Embarrassment kept him from returning home to Dale, Georgia, after his discharge. But with his father ill, his family needs him. One of the first friendly faces he encounters is Ellie Hall. The gawky little girl next door now has curves that shouldn't make his mouth water. She deserves a hero, not a broken man. Ellie can't remember a time when she didn't have a crush on Grant. Now if she could only get it through Grant's thick skull that she doesn't need to fear him. As they work together to straighten out his family business, holiday fireworks aren't the only thing making Grant sweat. But by the time they uncover why the figures aren't adding up, Grant must rely on pure instinct to keep Ellie safe from danger and pray that this time, he won't fail.
