Gwen Stevens had a privileged life until her father spoke three little words that turned her world upside down. “You’re cut off.”
Broke and desperate, Gwen is forced to accept a waitressing job, but this glimmer of hope has a price. As if being a cocktail waitress isn’t bad enough, she has to do it in a dive bar called The Den, and her bad luck doesn’t stop there. She also needs to deal with the new owner, a blue-eyed, self-righteous ass determined to make her life miserable.
Liam Sinclair walked away from the entitlement and obligation his family planned for him, vowing to make his own way in the world…
Adjusting to life as a new business owner, Liam has experienced more than his fair share of setbacks. When his only waitress breaks her leg, his sister takes it upon herself to hire a replacement—a spoiled, self-indulgent hothead with too much makeup and more than enough attitude. Gwen represents the world he’s trying to escape, a world of excess and greed that he was never cut out for.
Appearances can be deceiving, and first impressions aren’t always right…
Despite their apparent differences, the tension between them turns to a fiery passion that neither of them can resist. Together they find balance and learn to appreciate the simpler things in life. But Gwen soon discovers that old habits die hard, and one mistake is all it takes to ruin everything.
Forgiveness must be earned, but even a villain deserves a chance at redemption…


When Gwen finds herself facing an unknown future, one where she has to rely only on herself, she struggles to figure out what to do.  Cut off from financial support by her father, Gwen must learn to make due with the things she can get on her own, meaning finding herself a job, making a budget and growing up in more ways than one.  

Liam has made a break with his past, set aside the life laid out for him and struck out on his own, but that past still colors his perceptions, including his first impression of Gwen, the seemingly Uppity Princess his sister hires to work the bar.  

As Gwen gets to know herself as she starts on her new path she forms a friendship of sorts with Liam.  A bond that turns into more when the chemistry between them comes to life.  But things aren't smooth and easy for these two as they find their way together and Gwen discovers that she might not be as changed as she thought.  

Through growth and changes, set backs and more, we journey with Gwen and Liam through this story to discover that everyone deserves a chance to redeem themselves. Love finds us where we least expect it and sometimes with the most unexpected of people.  That sometimes we judge too quickly based on our own preconceived notions. That sometimes we have to fight for our second chances.
