Wondering ‘What should I read next?’ Protecting Her Heart by Jen Peters.
Best friends. New feelings. What’s a guy to do?
Officer Javier Gonzales protects McCormick’s Creek on duty and off, patrolling the streets, dealing with new cases of vandalism, and helping elderly ladies hang sheets on the line. His laughter and camaraderie with his friend Shauna are suddenly endangered when he realizes his feelings have shifted to something deeper.
Shauna Hart spends her mornings as a barista at the Sunshine Café and her down time with friends, including Javi Gonzales. After several years of just friendship, his unexpected almost-kiss leaves her on a roller coaster of confusion.
While they explore romantic possibilities, Shauna continues mentoring at-risk teens in her spare time. If she couldn’t help her own sister years ago, perhaps she can help someone else now. But when Javi arrests one of “her” pre-teens, Shauna sees a side of him she never expected.
Will Javi’s need for justice and Shauna’s call for mercy doom their new relationship?
