When I became a single father at seventeen, I knew my path wasn’t going to be easy. Hell, sometimes it sucked. Year after year, I tirelessly busted my ass until my business was booming. Until my daughter was happy. Until life? It was good. Settled.
But sometimes being settled is overrated. Boring. Especially when a little excitement walks through my door in the shape of Rae Kamden. With her sarcastic mouth and smartass comebacks, she’s the type of girl still sowing her wild oats and not looking to settle. Not with a guy like me.
I’ve been stuck in this small town since I was a child and nothing is going to keep me here. Not anymore. Done being tied down, I’m out of here the first chance I get. This town can kiss my ass goodbye. 
I’m twenty-two. Single. Unwilling to settle. But if I did? It wouldn’t be with Hudson Tamell.
So explain to me why the moment he looks up from under the hood of my car, the sarcastic replies on my lips come out sounding sweeter. Why does he make me want to settle down, right here, with him? 
That’s not what I wanted. But maybe it’s what I need.

In this story we have Rae and Hudson. Hudson a car mechanic and Rae a bartender with big dreams.
The initial meet cute is unique. Maybe not the situation, or the circumstances but I love how the awkward staring isn't shied away from here. I often read boos and wonder if its ever addressed and in this book it is. That gives this book a dose of realness I think romance books are missing. The suspension of disbelief can only go so far.
 The characters are all likable and I can easily relate to them.
Hudson is the most adorable single dad that I think I've ever read. I can see me looking for single dads in the park now. He's sexy, kind of serious when he's not around Rae.
 Then there is Rae, a tragedy struck her and its hindering her life. She is plagued with nightmares, it honestly so sad it breaks my heart.
Another thing I love about this book is the "supporting players" I am in love with Tucker and I cannot wait to read more about him. Maurie and Rae's sister are fun too. I want to be their friend. They speak sarcasm and it is the language of my people.
There is a big reveal that blew me away. It was a tidal wave of emotions that made me stop and put the book down. It was so gripping and poignant and haunting I was scared for a 3 seconds that felt like 3 years.
Don't worry though its a HEA

By day I’m a freelance cover designer. By every other free moment, a writer. I’m a Missouri raised gal, but I currently live in North Carolina with my US Marine husband where I spend my days begging him for a cat. I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural and One Tree Hill. I like cold weather, buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never say no to brownies.
