Don’t ever, ever, ever go near that boy. Not unless you want to be a single mother at seventeen. That boy is Bad with a capital B.
The words that my father spoke to me when it came to Trouper Aoki didn’t scare me like they probably should.
In fact, they only made me intrigued all the more.
When it came to Troup, there was just no resisting fate when it came to the two of us
Even at eighteen, when we went our separate ways with the promise to come back to each other once we were done pursuing our careers, I knew he would always be it for me.
And color me surprised when eight years after making that pact with Trouper, we were once again reunited. Only this time in an undercover FBI investigation—me, the FBI officer, and Troup call sign ‘State’ as a military liaison.
Trouble always finds him. You’d do better to run far, far away.
Truer words had never been spoken.
From the time Troup was a young boy, he’d been in some kind of trouble.
So it only goes to show when he winds up in the FBI investigation with none other than Beckham Spurlock, his high school sweetheart, things are bound to go wrong.
Only, he has no idea how wrong until things go bad. Really, really bad.
All it takes is saving her by hurting another for him to see the wrong side of a jail cell.
To make matters worse, he has to live the next fifteen years in prison knowing that his son will grow up without him. And the woman he loves will likely move on to a man that isn’t so much trouble.
“Friends to lovers, 5 stars”
Okay, I’m going to be completely transparent. I was the kid that did what I was told not to. You could not tell me I couldn’t be friends with someone without having a legitimate reason. So within the first couple of pages I was hooked on Conjugal Visits. Hook, line, and sinker.
Trouper and Beckham start out as just friends. But by the time high school graduation rolls around, they are more without being more. They know they belong together, but they both have dreams they want to fulfill before they make their way back to each other. Over time, communication might grow scarce, but they remain loyal.
When life brings them back together they grasp the opportunity with both hands and hold on tight. Even though Beckham’s father still hates Trouper. When life throws them another curve ball Beckham is loyal without fault. She will do whatever she has to, to clear his name. The question is, is she putting herself at risk by doing so?
Read Conjugal Visits now to figure out what happens between these two.
