As a member of the Bourbon Street Boys private security firm, Antoinette “Toni” Delacourte is one strong woman, but despite her reputation for being tough as nails, she is haunted by her past mistakes. Now they’re catching up to her, and throwing her for a loop.
Ten years ago, Toni kissed Lucky, her brother’s best friend. Worried it would break apart the group she’d come to see as family, she walked away—straight into the arms of Charlie, and an abusive relationship.
For the past decade she’s tried to keep her feelings for Lucky platonic—he’s her friend, her colleague, and he’s got his own past to deal with. Free of Charlie but unable to shake his memory, Toni finds herself feeling vulnerable and unable to deny her attraction to Lucky any longer.
She’s always thought that kiss was her first mistake, but now she’s wondering whether the real mistake was running away.

I loved this friends to lovers romance. I enjoyed Toni is hard faced and hard hearted girl. I also loved Lucky he is an easy going, loveable alpha male. they have been friends since they were 11 and after sharing a kiss at the age of 15 Toni runs away from her feelings by getting in an abusive relationship that ends very badly. While trying to come to terms with her bad decisions Toni ends up having a drunken tryst with Lucky that ends up with an unplanned pregnancy. Herein lies the story and the beginning of their relationship, or not relationship. Super stubborn Toni, super sexy Lucky, and a whole lot of fun and action. I loved the storyline, I loved the writing and the characters were all perfect. I was laughing, a lot, tearing up, a little, and praying for a happy ending. Fantastic story, beautifully written.
