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?
