After a bout of too many boyfriends who don’t live up to her expectations, Johanna Walker has the itch to settle down, but can’t seem to find a way to surrender herself wholeheartedly. With an absent father and an alcoholic mother, she’s the sole caretaker of her younger brother, Cole. Rugged and tattooed, Cameron MacCabe lands the job as the new bartender at the posh Club 39, where Jo works, and their attraction is impossible to ignore. He wants to get to know her, but discovers Jo built walls around her heart long ago. Cam is determined to peel back each layer one by one and is surprised to find a soft, beautiful woman underneath her tough exterior. (NAL, May, 384 pp., $15.00)
