A sweet read that is enjoyable and easy to read. Little angst, low drama or maybe I should say, foreseeable drama. This book is simple and flows easily. I bit predictable but one I liked =))
Kane & Halley. Went to high school together and were friends but nothing more. Halley closed herself off to anything and mostly everyone after being rescued from a nightmarish stay in foster care when her mother gave Halley and her sisters up for drugs. Her aunt took her and her sister in and she now is living a lonely life but one she is content in and has everything she needs. So when her car breaks down on the side of the road and Kane Harmon, the town mechanic, comes to tow her, she finds herself opening up to a possible friendship. Nothing more, right???
Kane is a strong individual, takes a lot on his shoulders, and has been burned in the relationship area so he sticks to quick one nighters. When he gets called out on a tow pick up and comes face to face with Halley Ward, an old friend he was always attracted to, his view of relationships quickly change. He definitely is willing to work to get this girl. He’s always liked her, always wanted her, and he is definitely willing to do what he needs to do to get her, even if that is waiting and taking his time and giving her space and time to figure things out.
Will these two figure things out or will Halley return to living a quiet, almost recluse life, and not give the kind, handsome, loving Kane a chance? She has to learn to give up her fears, to trust again, but will that be with Kane?
I enjoyed this story, it was simple, I was wishing for a bit more angst, maybe a little more they could have experienced together, but with saying that, I ultimately did enjoy this couple. The ending was lovely. I am looking forward to getting more to the Ward girls :-)))
