Zone Defense Book Four
Best friends, soul mates, and explosive secrets...
When we’re both needy and tactile AF, it’s no wonder everyone thinks my best friend and I are an item. But that’s so not what’s going on.
Cassius Britton, the mouthy basketball player for the Minnesota Eagles, is my soul mate. He has been since he shared his gummy bears and let me have all the red ones.
Because that’s the kind of person he is—selfless and sweet. But he’s so much more than that. He’s the man who rescued me from my homophobic parents. He’s the man who brought me and my sister into his family home and wrapped us in love and sunshine.
All of that, and so much more, makes us soul mates—which doesn’t mean he’s meant to be mine.
And when I become a dad and have to balance being a cop in our small town while dealing with grief, of course he steps up, because that’s who Cassius is.
But when I need to get married, when I need a man to step up and be by my side, maybe Cassius is too close. Too much of a risk.
Because how can I possibly marry my best friend and not start to fall, especially when the secrets between us are so explosive, they’ll either burn us to the ground or set our hearts free forever?

TW: Homophobic asshole parents who threaten conversion therapy (they get their asses handed to them); a racist dickwad who gets his comeuppance; an ouchie, traumatic scene involving burned skin and chocolate (nothing too graphic); a character dealing with an unpleasant phobia (mild coprophobia).
