"...equal parts heart-tugging and steamy--strictly for romance enthusiasts." ~Kirkus Reviews"Elizabeth Marx's gritty writing was a pleasant surprise to me in Cutter's Vs Jocks and a powerful depiction of love and forgiveness in Binding Arbitration." ~The Book Runner Through the corridors of the Windy City's criminal courts, single mother Libby Tucker knows exactly how far she'll go to save her cancer-stricken son's life. The undefeated defense attorney is prepared to fight, but the cost of this victory requires revisiting old heartache.
Seven years ago, Libby had a one night stand with Aidan Palowski that ended in a pregnancy and him deserting her at their college graduation. Libby has worked her backside bare for everything she's attained, while Aidan has been indulged since he landed in a pile of Gold Coast money. Libby fears asking Aidan to live up to his biological duty could jeopardize the only thing the jock worships: his celebrity baseball career. But when Aidan learns about his son's desperate need, it pricks open the wound he's carried since he abandoned Libby and the child.

All Libby needs is a little anonymous DNA, but Aidan wants to recapture all he lost the day he walked away from her. There's more to settle between Aidan and Libby than heartache, redemption, and forgiveness because Libby might not be able to save her son without sacrificing her own heart.
"Marx's romance is full of twists and turns, some expected, and some not, with an emotionally complex central conflict, lively ... characters and a carefully drawn Chicago setting." ~Kirkus Reviews

"A story that entices every emotion. But my biggest warning here is make sure you have tissues handy cause there are some real heart wrenching parts too." Kirstie

"One of the most moving reads ever! the mood for an emotional rollercoaster, this is the book for you!" Rhonda D

"With an intense undercurrent of love and sensuality, plus a really intricate and stunning plot, this one's a winner." Mallory Anne-Marie Haws


About Elizabeth Marx

See more books from this Author
Windy City writer Elizabeth Marx brings cosmopolitan flair to her fiction, which is a blend of romance and fast-paced Chicago living with a sprinkle of magical realism. In her past incarnation she was an interior designer--not a decorator--which basically means she has a piece of paper to prove that she knows how to match and measure things and can miraculously make mundane pieces of furniture appear to be masterpieces. Elizabeth says being an interior designer is one part shrink, one part marriage counselor and one part artist, skills eerily similar to those employed in writing. Elizabeth grew up in Illinois and has also lived in Texas and Florida. If she's not pounding her head against the wall trying to get the words just right, you can find her at a softball field out in the boonies or sitting in the bleachers by a basketball court. Elizabeth resides with her husband, girls, and two cats who've spelled everyone into believing they're really dogs. Elizabeth has traveled extensively, but still says there's no town like Chi-Town.
