“Everyone deserves a chance to be rescued.”
That’s the mantra I’m repeating when a well-equipped biker pulls over to save me. One glance at the scowl Crawford Doxe is wearing proves he isn’t impressed with the task. My efforts to change his mind deflate faster than the shredded tire at our feet. But disgruntled or not, my so-called hero still agrees to fix my flat.
I don’t expect to see Crawford again, but he’s suddenly very visible in our small town. Avoiding him would be my preference. That’s not how this story goes. For whatever reason, my daughter finds an ally in the broody mechanic. Denying her is something I do my best to avoid. I can only hope Crawford’s shine wears off before he tarnishes what little trust still exists.
As if the odds are ever on my side.
Commitments are a foreign concept to him. He doesn’t make any promises to try. That should’ve been enough for me to steer clear. It most certainly isn’t.
What follows can only be described as a disastrous clash of epic proportions.
But one indisputable fact remains. That lone soul has no plans of opening his heart.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
When single mom Keegan breaks down on the side of the road, her white knight comes in the form of a burly, reclusive mechanic on a Harley. And she rescues him right back. While her daughter Millie takes an immediate liking to Ford, he and Keegan can’t stand one another from the get-go. But the more time Ford reluctantly spends with Millie and her mom, he realizes just how lonely his life really is. He is not a people person and prefers the company of his dog to most humans, but there is something about little Peep and her mom that make Ford want to be around them all the time.
Ford and Keegan’s romance starts out pretty much as a one night stand hate lay. But once they get over their distaste for one another, their relationship sizzles. They both have a lot of emotional baggage (her past bad relationships and his horribly cruel father), but they find solace in one another and someone to lean on as they slay their demons.
This story is just as much about Ford and the friendship he develops with Peep as it is about his and Keegan’s romance. Harloe Rae does a great job of developing both relationships independently, and I loved how turned inside out Ford gets around Millie.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
