Short Summary

Addison’s father has one strict rule: no dating the mechanics who work in his restoration shop. After harboring a lifelong unrequited love for Carter Dalton, her best friend’s older brother and lead technician, Addison decides it’s time to give up and get her life on track.

Even when the evidence is right in front of her face, Addison can’t accept that handsome, cocky Carter could have real feelings for her. After Carter admits he’s been restoring Addison’s dream car in his backyard garage for the last several years, she can deny his sincerity no longer.


The majority of the book takes place in a classic car restoration shop in a small fictional town outside Sedona, Arizona.
