Bad luck follows her in that she not only ends up having to replace a tire, but finds that her bank has frozen her account for unusual activity and she cannot pay for the tire. The shop owner graciously allows her to leave with a promise to pay. When she goes back, she meets the owner's son, Clay.
Clay is helping at his dad's shop while his dad recuperates from surgery. His dad wants him to run the shop, but it's just not his thing. He works as an IT professional and makes good money developing websites. He has done some bad things in his past that ended a good friendship, and is now trying to do things in the right way.
There is an instant attraction with Courtney and Clay meet, and the story goes from there after he offers Courtney a job to answer phones and schedule appointments.
This was a book that was hard for me to put down. I liked the characters, I liked the flow of the story. It was one of those books where as you read it, and the characters get to know each other, and are drawn to each other - you feel it yourself. You feel yourself wanting that kiss. Wanting that touch. Then, when it happens, you sigh with happiness because you can almost feel that touch on your skin as well.
It probably didn't hurt because in my mind, Clay looked a lot like Chris Pine. Heh.
The story flows well, the characters are likable, including the supporting characters. The first date between the characters was my idea of not only a great first date, but a romantic one as well (I'm not giving anything away; you have to read it for yourself). The writing is wonderful - I mean, if it makes you feel like you are the one getting kissed, it has to be great!
A few complaints, and please keep in mind - this could totally be the jaded, single part of me: for someone to jump into this relationship so quickly after breaking off an 8 year relationship seems a bit unrealistic. Even if someone cheats on you, that takes time to get over. It happened to me, and I didn't even think about dating again for about 9 months or so afterward because the thought of doing it depressed me. Further, things went almost a little too smoothly as far as life goes. She got fired, but they realized their mistake and she got a lot of settlement money, they move in together, then they get a house... I mean, don't get me wrong. There were things that popped up, and there is a storyline involving the hero's niece that has family drama. But the flow of going from an 8 year relationship that ended badly to this relationship that went so well didn't seem real to me. But again, that is based on my life experiences.
Also...seriously, I love that Heywood wrote a character who is different from the norm, in not wanting to use her phone at all while in the car. It may be insignificant to most, and even "unrealistic" to some, but that is what I strive to do and hope others would do too. That little piece made me love Courtney.
I love how the story is pretty heartbreaking in the beginning, but Courtney grows from it and realizes who she is and what she lost of herself in her relationship, so she doesn't make those mistakes again. She was a real character you could relate with.
And Clay...oh Clay. I have a thing for mechanics and he is just...perfect. I mean he has his flaws, and Lord knows he has a rough past. But again he grew from his mistakes. He's honest. And he loves fiercely.
This was a great feel-good love story, with REAL characters.
I adored it.

I love how this book started and had me thinking it would go in a different direction than what it actually went in.
I love Courtney and Clay.Read more
