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?
A sharp creak of rusty hinges echoed through the garage, making both men jump guiltily as the girl hopped down from the truck. She stretched, then her eyes met Sawyer’s, and a crooked smile inched over her face. Gathering up the mess of long, thick cinnamon strands from around her face, she began to twist them together into a braid as she navigated through the maze of machinery toward them. A pair of frayed, cut-off denim shorts displayed long pale legs, and a green cardigan hung around her slim form.
She yawned as she approached, hiding it behind the back of a freckled hand, and Sawyer’s heart did an odd little clench within the shelter of his ribs. He pressed the heel of his hand against the spot.
“I can’t believe I fell asleep,” she said, sheepishly. “I hope I didn’t drool in your truck, Dan.”
Sawyer’s dad waved a hand at her, brushing away her comment. “There’s been worse in that truck, I’m sure.”
Sawyer glanced at his father; then, before he could think of any comment to needle him with, his gaze strayed back to the woman’s face on their own accord. The bruise branded the freckle-dusted arc of her left cheekbone, an ugly mottled patch of bright green and blue spilling like oil across her fair skin. Sawyer curled his fingers into fists at his side. He had to force himself to look away from the mark. Anger, wild and targetless, rolled in his gut. He swallowed, hard. Dan was the first to break the silence.
