Dax: My life ended six years ago. No, really. I was dead on the side of the road following a gruesome motorcycle accident. From what I've been told, it's only because of one stubborn man that I have another chance to make something of my life. I no longer hate him for screwing up what I thought I wanted. I want to thank him. NEED to tell him what his actions mean to me.

Now, I’m headed back to the town I’ve never set foot in even though it’s a huge part of my life. I’m not thrilled about that, but the job offers haven’t exactly been flowing in. They’ll probably think I’m crazy, because there’s no way I won’t be able to look at every guy I walk past, wondering if he’s the one who saved me.

Michael: My entire life, I wanted to save lives. I’d earned a full-ride scholarship and had been accepted to med schools across the country. I was so close to making those dreams a reality until the night held a dying man in my arms. I’ve never been able to get the images of his lifeless body caked in mud out of my head. Even when the paramedics tried to take over trying to save him, I couldn’t let go. I never let go. Eventually, my guilt over not doing more cost me everything but my son. And now, I worry I’ll lose him if I don’t get it together.

I’ve often thought that if I could find him, maybe I could get some closure and finally get my life back on track. Now he’s here and I’m more of a mess than ever. Once the truth comes out, will he keep trying to save me or will he realize that it’s too late?

Dax hit a turning point in his life six years ago. After a horrible car crash in a small town, where his life is saved by an off duty EMT, it took some time, but Dax discovered life was worth living. He moves to the small town where his life nearly came to an end, when he is offered a teaching job at the local elementary school.

After just getting to town he meets Jagger, a cute little 5 year old, then he meets Jagger's father, Michael. Sparks fly, but not in a good way. Can these three learn to be a cohesive unit?

I loved the premise of this story, and I adored the main characters. I loved that Jagger was such a huge part of this story and in so many scenes. He was an awesome little character, and I loved getting to read about him. I adored Dax and Michael, but at times I wanted to strangle them both. The story progressed kind of fast, but it's so detailed that, if the characters hadn't mentioned how short the time periods were I would have never noticed. It's a well written story that kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next. It's heartwarming and steamy, and my only real complaint is I think I would have liked a little more of a solid ending. I like my endings tied in a double knot, so they are sure not to come apart, haha!

The secondary characters of Justin and Michael's parents also made the book a joy to read. I hope there is more in the future, I'd love to revisit this small town, and see Justin find love. All in all a really enjoyable read, which is no surprise from this author. Highly recommended!!

Sloan Johnson is a big city girl trapped in a country girl’s life. While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn’t yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass.

When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren’t enrolled, you can’t attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after.

Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It’s a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?

Now, Sloan is a tattooed mom with a mohawk and two kids. She’s been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she’s been known to lose herself with a good book and forget she has somewhere to be.
