About FIX YOU, Bash and Olivia Book One (The McDaniels Brothers, #1)


Olivia Beckett’s once-charmed life is falling apart. Her family is about to lose everything, and she has almost no chance of continuing her college education. She can't even seek solace from her high school sweetheart. He's changed. She doesn't recognize the boy she used to know— his violent behavior is escalating and it scares the hell out of her. Her whole world is crumbling, and she has no one to turn to……

Sebastian “Bash” McDaniels is an up and comer in the boxing world working nights at the local college bar until he can land the fight of his dreams that will get him the hell out of Boston and away from his family's tragic past. He’s weeks from his goal when Olivia Beckett comes tumbling into his life in a flash of silky dark hair and haunted eyes. When he saves her from a potentially brutal beating, they begin to grow close, but Olivia's ex isn’t ready to let her go so easily.

Bash can't bring himself to walk away, but fixing Olivia just might leave him broken…

"Don't you walk away from me when I'm talking to you.” He pulled me away from the door and shoved me against the wall again, this time crowding me until I had to crane my neck back to see his face. His hand closed over my throat, and his voice dropped low. "If you ever embarrass me like that again in front of my boys, I will make you regret it. Do you understand me?"
In shock, body shaking like a leaf in the March winds, I nodded, ready to say anything to make him let me go. His grip wasn't tight, but it was enough that it chilled me to the bone. Brutal violence was right there, under the surface, waiting to erupt, and I was one false move away from giving him an excuse to unleash it.
"I asked you a question. Do you understand me?"
I wet my lips and croaked out half a "yes," but before I got any further, the door flew open, squealing on its hinges and slamming against the wall so hard, the whole room vibrated.
"I'm going to give you three second to let her go."
I couldn’t see past Andy’s rugby-wide shoulders, but I recognized the voice and the sound of it sent bile rising in my throat.
Sebastian. My knight in shining armor for the second time that night.
Jesus, Andy was going to kill him.
“One.” Sebastian’s voice was serious as a heart attack.
"Who the fuck are y-"
"Two."
But three never came. One second, Andy's hand was around my throat, the next he was flat on his back, sprawled across the filthy tile floor, lip split and gushing blood.
Sebastian took my chin in a surprisingly gentle, steady grip and examined my face. "Are you okay?"
I tried to talk, but no words would come. My teeth chattered uncontrollably and my whole body felt numb, but I managed a firm nod. He didn't let me go for a long moment, his perceptive gaze taking in far too much.
"Do you have a friend here who can take you home?"
Odd how in that moment I noticed the strangest, most minute details, like everything had been amplified by a thousand. The way his skin smelled of clean sweat and sports-scented deodorant. The clenched tightness of his stubbled jaw that belied the concern in his crystal blue eyes. The way he never even looked down at bleeding Andy to see if he would get back up and fight. It was like nothing else mattered, except for me.
"Hey, you with me? How many fingers am I holding up
