He’s her rock in the midst of the storm
When Maggie Ward’s world is torn apart by sudden tragedy, the only thing that makes her days bearable is Clay Thompson’s unwavering presence. He’s protective, caring, and everything she could ask for in a friend. But when she finds herself longing for more than friendship, it will take a little seduction to convince the stubborn mechanic she’s ready to start living again.
She’s his heart, whether he knows it or not
Clay Thompson’s got the taking-care-of-others business down pat, only he’s never faced this particular challenge before—the one woman he’s always wanted is unexpectedly his to care for. Suddenly it’s not just responsibility driving him, but a wild desire to make Maggie truly his. But following his heart might mean sacrificing the family he’s held together for years.

I received a free ARC copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This was a really great book to read. We see how he let the love of his life go to take care of his family. She comes back into town with her husband and they become friends. They lose the husband. In their grieving process they lean on each other. He is fighting his feelings for her thinking it’s too soon. Then she surprises him.
If you embrace love with your whole heart nothing seems to stand in the way. But it has to be true love and anything is possible just like in this story.
