Oliver “Ollie” Petroskovic’s life as an international supermodel was heading in the right direction. He worked part-time for his brother at his detective agency—Petroskovic Haven Investigations—and had just bought his dream house. But all that changed when he found his brother dead, a victim of PTSD-induced suicide.

Almost a year later, Ollie is trying to keep his brother’s business afloat, but can’t get his PI license. Then his brother’s best friend, Kade Alme, shows up, fresh from the battlefield after a close brush with death. Kade is looking for a new life, in more ways than one, and with PI license in hand, he’s exactly what Ollie needs to keep PHI running.

When one of Ollie's childhood friends gets in trouble, Ollie feels he has to help. Kade insists on investigating if only to keep Ollie safe. Neither realizes the danger they’re in as someone tries to tear them apart before they can find solid ground together.


Donovan was asleep in a chair where I’d left him. I guess three in the morning was kind of late.
I shook him awake.
“Can you take me back to the hotel?” he asked. “I don’t want to walk from your office. It’s pretty late.”
Or early, depending on your take. “Sure, I can drop you off on the way. And I’ll drive you back to the house tomorrow so I can question a few people while I’m there.”
Donovan followed me back to the car like a zombie. The hotel I’d booked him at wasn’t a Hilton. In fact it was just a little place not far from the office that had a dozen or so rooms between two floors. Apparently he was on the end of the second floor. I glared at the door since this side of the building had very little light. The room faced away from the street, and heavy trees hung over the stairway.

“You couldn’t find a room closer to the streetlight?” I groused at my friend, who’d fallen asleep again.

  1. I would like to be a regular sized women. Now I days they call it plus sized. But anything over a size 2 is considered a plus sized.

  2. A hand and foot model! All the manicure and pedicures! Ohhh and the foot massages would be an added bonus! Looking forward to reading this one.

  3. I think I'd like to be a shoe model. Think about all the shoes you could get.
