Carmen Maclean is unmoored from her home and city when a long-term relationship turns violent. Determined to protect herself, Carmen heads to the small mountain town where her little brother lives, but her plans take a turn for the worse when car trouble leaves her stranded on the side of a lonely mountain highway.
Sawyer Stevenson is a divorced small town mechanic, scared to let himself fall in love again. Lately, he’s taken to burying his emotions in ways that border on scandalous. When he is tasked with fixing a Beetle better left to the junkyard, Sawyer is willing to accept the challenge. He didn’t count on meeting Carmen, or the feelings she would stir in him.
Carmen and Sawyer can’t get enough of each other, despite knowing it won’t be long before they have to say goodbye. Nothing matters to Sawyer but keeping Carmen safe when danger follows her to Willow Brook. For the first time in as long as either can remember they are looking forward instead of back, but what exactly does the future hold?
Carmen moved to the middle of the road and pushed herself onto her tiptoes, spinning in a slow circle while she craned her neck. In every direction, rolling hills thick with pine trees bordered the curving ribbon of asphalt. She completed the motion again. But no houses magically appeared, and no amount of hopping or squinting made a difference. Shoving her hair from her face, she released a frustrated growl. If she was honest, she blamed her brother for this.
The sun hung fat and low in the sky, steadily losing its interest in the day. Carmen could not remember how long it had been since she passed anything that resembled civilization. Lost as she had been in rampaging thoughts, the feeling of the road passing beneath her wheels had been her song of freedom. She knew she was moving in the right direction, and the forward momentum was all she needed.
Retrieving her cell from her purse, Carmen scowled down at the screen. The thing struggled to open its search engine, growing hot in her palm before prompting her to switch on the GPS. She did, typed in tow trucks/garages/mechanics and closed her eyes with a silent plea to the Gods of cell phone service and technology. Stevenson and Sons Garage. The name and number topped the list in bright blue.
With a breath of relief, she pressed the link. A long moment passed before the call option came up. “Hello?” a man’s voice answered abruptly after the first ring.
