Description and OverviewThe sizzling first book in M. Malone's USA TODAY bestselling new romance series about a very eccentric billionaire.
Tank Marshall has anger issues.
Years ago he swore off fighting but everything in his life lately is out of control. His mom's cancer is back and the deadbeat dad he hasn’t seen in years is offering an inheritance in exchange for redemption. So he prowls the streets at night, looking for an outlet for the rage.
There’s only one person that keeps him anchored in the midst of the chaos. One person untouched by violence and money and lies. Emma Shaw.
But the one thing that Tank hasn’t learned yet is that when billions are at stake, there’s no such thing as innocent. Because the only woman he trusts is the last woman he should.
Money. Changes. Everything.

Her breath whooshes out all at once, and then she takes a deep inhale. Her eyes stay on my face. We stand like that for a few minutes, breathing quietly. When the color comes back to her face, I move away.
“I am so sorry. I’ll move it.” I lead her to the bed and she sits, woodenly. I block her view of the nightstand with my body as I retrieve the gun. There’s a gun locker in my closet where I keep my Heckler & Koch and a few of my semi-automatic rifles. I walk into the closet and put the Glock in the case. When I come out, I sit on the edge of the bed.
“Emma? When your parents were killed … you were there, weren’t you?”
Her fingers clench in the blanket and then her head bobs up and down. Yes.
Emotion wells inside me. She’s here, helping me, even though watching violence of any kind has to be traumatizing for her. The scene she witnessed in the alley tonight suddenly takes on new meaning. She waded into that for me.
She’s dealing with things that obviously scare the sh-t out of her, for me.
“You don’t have to stay. I understand if you want to go home.” Even I’m not selfish enough to make her sleep here if she’s freaked out. Nothing is going to help me at this point but I can help her. I’ll probably be up all night anyway but she needs to sleep. And she needs to feel safe enough to do that.
She turns sad eyes to me. “I’m staying, Tank. I told you I would. I’m not going to leave you.”
