Zoey's mother neglected her horribly as a child, never showing her any love, attention or for the most part nevery having any food in the house. She spent the next few years in foster care before being adopted. A young marriage also ends badly and her ex-husband Rob tries to take the business that she and her adoptive father have started. She vows never to marry again and also to never ever ever get involved with anyone that works at the garage.

Then a new mechanic comes to town. Andy. He is staying in the apartment above the business and it is up to her to get it ready and make him feel welcome. They spend some time together shopping for groceries and other necessities for his new apartment. Andy saves her from a nasty encounter with the ex-husband Rob at the store. Rob is evil and has a nasty mouth on him. Andy is there for her when a brick comes sailing through the front window, he holds her hand and comforts her. He becomes her friend. She has never had a male friend before.

She finds herself falling for him but she fights it. She is hurting and Andy is hurting too. They both have feelings for each other. Her family tells her to take a chance, but she just can't. She has so many emotions in her that are scaring her from being with him. She owns her family so much and her stupid actions once almost cost them the business. She just can't take that chance again.

The author did a great job with this story. Zoey has so much love to give but she is living with so much guilt. For things that simply were out of her control. Yes her ex-husband was a horrible person but it was not her fault. She needs to let go of her guilt and move on with her life, open herself up to living and loving again. Andy is there for her, he has feeling for her and he would be perfect for her. I loved how the author made her so vulnerable yet underneath we can see is strong. I am hoping for a happy ever after for the two of them. This is the first in a series and I am eagerly awaiting the next one. I would rate this story a 4/5.
