Every woman wants a man who is good with his hands…
He’s a sexy bad boy mechanic with a reputation. She’s a guarded reporter with too much to lose to play with fire. She tries to resist him but one touch from him changes everything.
Recent college graduate Gabby Richards has big plans for her life. At the top of those plans is landing a job for a major magazine in Chicago. While Gabby is busy mapping out her career as a journalist, her father gets seriously injured. Upon hearing of his accident, Gabby drops everything, including her career plans, and heads home to her small, rural town of Clear Lake, but vows to return to Chicago as soon as her father is well.
On her first day back in her hometown she has a run-in with the town’s sexy new mechanic, Jake Harrison, and meeting him turns everything upside-down. Despite her wishes to remain single, she doesn’t see the harm in going on a few dates with him. Soon Jake is helping Gabby confront her past and bringing out a side of her that has remained hidden for years. Even though she wants to remain focused on her career and return to her city life, she begins to wonder if it’s possible to have it all—career, her dream life in Chicago, and Jake Harrison.
She looked up at him, intending to ask him just why he had asked her to come outside, but he was too fast for her. He slipped his hands around the back of her neck and titled her head back further. His mouth met hers with an almost crushing force. Jake slid his tongue between her parted lips, their tongues twined together until he broke their hold.
“God damn I’ve wanted to do that since I saw you standing in my shop today.”
He leaned down and kissed her again. His thumbs stroked the sensitive flesh along the sides of her neck. The light touch seemed innocent enough, but there was something about the way his calloused skin felt against her the smooth column of her neck. It awakened things in her.
