Behind every successful man there is a woman.
What happens when you’re the woman behind an entire team?
Sandy Preston has been den mother, friend, confidante, and the guiding force behind the men of BAM for years.

Can she move on and find love a second time around?
Will the men she considers family accept the changes?
Hell broke loose about three o’clock. Reid rushed past my desk, casting a worried glance my way as he hurried by, disappearing into Aiden’s office. With a frown, I asked the person I was speaking with on the phone to repeat themselves, only to be startled by the loud curse coming from Aiden’s office. Seconds later, they both disappeared into Maddox’s office. I shook my head, wondering what crisis was occurring now. Something big in IT land or a glitch in the security system Reid was diligently working on, adding upgrades or tweaking.
I had my answer soon enough when the three of them appeared in front of my desk. Their countenances were serious, and they looked upset.
A flicker of fear went through my chest.
“What is it?” I asked. “Bentley? Is he all right?” I had spoken with him not long ago, and he said he was on his way back to the office. Had there been an accident?
Aiden shook his head. “Bent’s fine. He’ll be here in a moment. We need to talk to you.”
I furrowed my brow. “Fine. About?” My gaze fell to Reid’s hand. He was holding his phone, which was nothing new, but what was on the screen explained the intensity of their expressions and the tense set of their shoulders.
My profile on Mature Matchups was on his phone. And the protective, worried faces were exactly what I knew would happen if they discovered it.

Praise for the novel:
“Melanie’s words are truly magical and I will always be thankful to her for introducing me to the men and to the women, to the family, of BAM.” ~Carol’s Reviews
“From the beginning of Bentley’s story to the last word in Sandy’s the journey of the Bam boys has been filled with so many emotions and showed us what family is even if it’s not the family your born into but the family you make!” ~Goodreads Review (Sandy)
The second act springs forth from friendship to flame!
Melanie is just determined to make us go thru the tissues when we read her books, and Sandy is definitely no different. It is full of heart and family and love and humor.
Ever since Max passed, I’ve been waiting for Sandy’s second chance at romance because there was no way she was being left on the shelf to collect dust.
This was everything I’d hoped for!!
She and Jordan, once fellow widowers sharing their grief, become everything the other needs. They loved their spouses but they’re still young and both of them are lonely.
I love how the ‘boys’ react initially to their Sandy rejoining the world of dating. That the women are the ones who get things moving. And that Jordan is already part of the family.
Heartwarming and passionate and absolutely, fantabulous!! Stars to infinity!
It was fantastic reading a book with an actual mature couple in it too!! And, omgoodness, they are just as passionate as everyone else!!
Loved, loved, loved!! Frisky, fiesty, fun, and fabulous!!

NYT/WSJ/USAT international bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.
While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.
Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She’s learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.
