After eight years in prison, twenty-four year old Jordan Kane is the man everyone loves to hate.

Forced to return to his hometown while on parole, Jordan soon learns that this small town hasn’t changed since he was sent away. He is the local pariah, shunned by everyone, including his own parents. But their hatred of him doesn’t even come close to the loathing he feels every time he looks in the mirror.

Working odd jobs for the preacher lady, Jordan bides his time before he can leave this backwards town. But can time or distance erase the pain of living?

Torrey Delaney is new in town, and certainly doesn’t behave in a way the locals believe a preacher’s daughter should. Her reputation for casual hook-ups and meaningless sex quickly spreads. And that’s on top of her budding friendship with the hardened ex-con handyman—the good Reverend is less than thrilled with her estranged daughter’s path.

As friendship forms, can two damaged people who are afraid to love take their relationship to the next level? Can Torrey live with Jordan’s demons, and can Jordan break through Torrey’s walls? With the disapproval of a small town weighing heavily on them, they struggle to find their place in the world. Can they battle the odds, or will their world be viciously shattered?

Is love a life sentence?






Lori's thoughts: I really enjoyed reading about Torrey and Jordan. Two people who were broken and less than perfect. They both had their issues. I liked that Torrey was a woman with a backbone, someone who made up her own decisions and wasn't swayed by what the small-minded people of the town thought of Jordan. I liked Jordan. He wasn't perfect -- of course he wasn't...he's a man! :)

The only teensy thing that detracted from my love of the book was the southern drawl writing. It's a minor drawback and certainly does not detract from the storyline of the book. I recommend you read this book if you like bad boys and the strong women who love them.

I look forward to more work by Ms. Harvey-Berrick!





About the author:

I started writing contemporary romance two years ago. Before that, I didn’t think I could write a sex scene.



Turns out I can!



My lucky number is 13 because I was born on the 13th and live near a haunted castle by the ocean. My number one past-time is watching hot surfers get changed into (and out of) their wet-suits.

My husband doesn't read my books. My mother does.

Writing is my love, my hobby, my total addiction. All my characters are important to me and whisper their stories, even when I’ve finished writing their books. That’s why you’ll often find bonus chapters/out-takes from various books, because those voices just won’t be quiet.

Readers can find bonus chapters for several of my books on my website www.janeharveyberrick.com
