SWOLLEN: A Secret Baby Sports Romance by Stephanie Brother
Something Worth Fighting For.
I’m not the kind of girl that usually goes home with strange men, but Liam Dougherty isn’t the kind of man you can easily refuse, either.
Not only that, he saves me from something even more dangerous, and then gives me a night of passion that easily makes up for it.
A night that has consequences neither of us can ever imagine.
When I see him again, almost an entire year later, just the thought of that night enough to catch my breath in my throat, our daughter Maggie is already two months old.
I’m not the only one with a secret, however, when Liam reveals his past and proves just how dangerous he can really be.
An illegal, bare-fist boxer with a debt to pay, Liam’s life makes mine look like a walk in the park.
I know I should do everything I can to stay away from him, but something about him makes me keep coming back.
Secret or not, when Liam sets his eyes on me again, he makes it clear that nothing is going to get in his way of making sure I’m his.
Above everything else, he knows how to win, and right now he has something worth fighting for.
There’s not much good I’ve done in this world, but when I see Jasmine getting hassled by three men in a neighborhood she shouldn’t be walking home alone in, I figure it’s my opportunity to set things right.
If there’s one thing I know how to do, it’s fight for my own survival, so when Jasmine gets mixed up in my world by chance, I have to make sure I protect her too.
It’s been almost a year since I tried to keep her away from me the first time, and now she’s back, I want her more than ever.
I’ll do anything to win her over because I’ve never met anyone that gives me a better reason to fight.
Jasmine and I have a connection, and I can’t ignore it anymore.
I’m dangerous, but she knows it.
I’m bad for her, but I can’t stay away.
She says she has a secret, but whatever it is, it won’t be enough to stop me.
Finally, after everything else I’ve gone through, after running and hiding, and just plain surviving, finally I feel like I’ve got something worth fighting for.
