From New York Times bestseller Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new enemies-to-lovers office romance about two people who never thought to hope for their own happy ending. 

Two and a half years ago, I hit rock bottom and lost everything. Since then, I’ve turned my life around—no more booze, no more drugs, no more self-sabotage. With a new business to run and old promises to keep, the last thing I need is smart-mouthed hellcat Veronica Maddox disrupting my world.

Veronica’s as beautiful as she is infuriating. She pushes all my buttons. Maybe that didn’t matter before, but now she’s working for me. She keeps this place running. As a business owner, I appreciate that. As the man she hates and the one who can’t forget our wild night together, I’m slowly losing my mind.  I told myself I could resist her, but we only get along when our hands are doing the talking. Before I know it, our relationship is anything but professional.

As a single mom, Veronica has a difficult past of her own, and when it comes knocking at her door, I find myself feeling inexplicably proprietary. Because no matter how much I try to convince myself otherwise, what started as two enemies looking for release has developed into something neither of us imagined possible. And while Veronica’s a complication I never wanted, she is exactly what I need.

Not Without Your Love is the seventh novel in The Boys of Jackson Harbor series. These books can all be read as standalones, but you’ll enjoy reading them as a series!


  • Amazing and Intense!

    By fortheloveofreading1316
    This book is wonderful! I think I have read all your books now and I can’t ever put them down. It’s always so intense! This book did not disappoint either. I love how passionate these couples are. Even though they have tough situations they seem to always work together for the greater good. Now I can’t wait for what’s next!

    Lexi had a way of keeping the pages turning. I loved the story and how we are able to get a glimpse of the lives of the other Jackson’s through Colton and Veronicas story. I love the way the men in these books love their partners. I feel blessed to have the kind of fire and desire for my husband after 21 years of marriage and would love to continue to read about the characters from all the Jackson Harbor books! Please keep the Jackson family stories coming.

    In Not Without Your Love, Lexi Ryan made me like characters that I loathed in previous books! I never expected to like and understand Colton and Veronica. In their story we get to really know them and understand how they did the things they did that hurt their loved ones. In this book Veronica works for Colton. Due to a previous hook up that ended badly, they are not friends. The two of them constantly frustrate each other, but they are also insanely attracted to one another. When Veronica finds herself in a situation she never expected to be, Colton let’s her know that he cares and wants to help. As he slowly shows Veronica his real self, they start to fall in love. This book was full of angst and sexy times and I devoured it! It was also nice to see some of the Jacksons again.
  • Wonderful journey

    By Bc2mc3
    This last book of the Jackson Harbor series book is probably my favorite! I loved Colton and Veronica’s journey to HEA, but boy it was a tough road. Lexi Ryan does such a great job expressing emotions and I was fully involved in those emotions. Both Colton and Veronica have so much baggage to deal with but the chemistry between the two was palatable. I very much was involved in their journey and loved every minute of it. I look forward to the spin-off series to come.
  • Great add to the Jackson Harbor series!!

    By Ash321989
    I really like this book. I am a huge Lexi Ryan fan! She always does a great job making you fall in love with the characters!! This book did that! I love reading about Veronica and Colton's story. She has her walls up because she has been hurt so many times and Colton works to break those walls down... but he does it on her terms. He respects her decisions and doesn't pressure her into changing her mind. I appreciate that in a man!! The only thing I wished this book had was more details about Shay and Easton's story... They are mentioned and Easton books a party with Colton's company, but we never get to read about the party. I feel like if I could have read about the party I would have given this book 5000 stars!!! I just love those characters. So for all of you Jackson Harbor fans... go into this book knowing the book focuses on Colton and Veronica... other characters are mentioned, but not a lot. Which is fine, but I was just so sad about it. It is a great book though!!!!

    Loved Veronica and Colton's story! These two both had a lot of growing to do over the years and have pasts that weren't so rosy and sometimes downright painful. But these two are given some second chances in life and sometimes the good ones do win out in the end. Their chemistry is intense but they do have several obstacles to overcome both individually and together. This was such a good story!<3<3<3
  • A must read by Lexi Ryan!

    By Brenmcd
    Lexi Ryan has done it again! The final chapter in the Jackson Harbor series follows the story of Veronica and Colton. You will definitely need to read the other books in the series before this book to understand some of the back story. The chemistry between these two is undeniable but the personal struggles and misunderstandings are bigger and threaten their happiness. I could not put this book down once I started reading and I promise you won’t either!
  • I loved everything about this!

    By LCardozo1
    I saw myself in Veronica on every page. Regretting bad decisions I’ve made. Questioning whether I’m good enough now. Feeling constantly behind the eight ball. And I watched Veronica be loved, watched her deserve love, empathized with how hard it was for her to accept it but knew that she - and I - had every right to her happily ever after. Colton is nothing short of dreamy. If you’ve hit rock bottom and you don’t think you can redeem yourself - Colton is proof that you can. Incredible love story, steamy but also sweet, real and honest but still captivating - I don’t know how she does it, but Lexi is a genius.
  • Sexy, snarky, HEA

    By CrystalPerkins1010
    Colton and Veronica are not quite enemies to lovers but they definitely bring the snark to their interactions. I felt for both of them, trying to prove that they’ve put the past where it belongs. I definitely wanted to throw some punches (even at a character I love), and I rejoiced for them and their HEA. Can’t wait for what’s next with the side characters!
  • Loved this book!

    By Ruth M373
    This was a quick read for me! Veronica is the RBF twin who had her twin’s fiancé’s baby, Jackson. He is now three and she is now working for Colton and the other Heartbreakers at the marina. She has to make some tough choices to protect her son. Can this one night stand turn into her happily ever after? 5 stars
