COMMAND is an emotionally charged, steamy, contemporary romance set in K. Bromberg's Everyday Heroes World project.
An intoxicated haze and a pair of handcuffs was not how I planned to spend my first night back in Sunnyville— but up to this point life had been anything but predictable.
Running into my former love was inevitable, but nothing prepared me for the sight of Nathan Donleavy wearing a uniform. After all this time he still made my knees weak and my mouth water— for a split second I couldn’t help but remember happier times.
Then his badge caught the light and reminded me that this wasn’t some walk down memory lane. He was a cop and we were standing on opposite sides of the law.
I see the way he looks at me...I didn’t need his pity then, and I don’t need it now.
Shana Callahan was the one that got away.
She was also the last person I expected to see when I showed up to a call. The vibrant, beautiful girl I fell for all those years ago had been replaced by someone else, someone I barely recognized.
My sympathy turned to anger when I remembered her partying ways and how she walked away from me—from us. She might still be lost in her grief, but I had a job to do.
I vowed to protect and serve, but my wanting to protect her had nothing to do with my badge and everything to do with the girl who used to steal kisses from me.
That’s the girl I needed to find buried beneath the anger and hurt. We can do things the easy way or the hard way, but I’m not letting her walk away... again.
“How many lives do we live? Most say only one. I was on my second by twenty-five. The first time, I existed as my brother Jackson’s shadow. Though we shared the same birthday, he came out first and shone so bright from that day on. I wanted to be him. I wanted that light to touch me, but no matter what I did, I never came close. So I became his shadow.
Whatever he did, I did. Wherever he went, I went. So much so, “Shadow” became my nickname. And honestly, I liked being his shadow. He made me a part of something bigger than myself. It felt better than just being me. But what happens to the shadow when the light is gone? Does it still exist?”
