Educated automotive technician Sara McDaniels drives her truck off the road in a small, Rocky Mountain town. She never intended needing another mechanic in her life, but Jason Cole, Sauk City’s only grease monkey, has the resources she needs. After abandoning Denver, Colorado, with its cheats and liars in the auto repair business, she has no reason to trust Jason, but, after she meets his intense gray gaze, her defenses weaken. Her fierce will builds up walls, ever wary, for how can she learn the truth about him without revealing her hopes and heart in the process?
Jason Cole must salvage his shop from a greasy pit of fraud, compliments of his ex-employee. Hearing of Sara’s arrival in town and her background in automotive, he seeks her out and finds her completely unwilling to cooperate. Her education could get his shop back on track, but her prejudice keeps anything automotive-related at bay. He takes the personal route, discovers the mountains are her natural element, and stumbles upon her more fragile side. The last thing he’d planned was getting lost tracing trails in her wide, forest-green eyes. He holds off telling Sara about his business’ fraudulent past. If he breaks her burgeoning trust, it may be the one thing he can’t rebuild.
Neither of them wants Jason’s business to fail. Sara means to see this through to the end, see if Jason can exceed her expectations. When she discovers his secrets, will Jason’s past make her run again, or is he truly her last resort?
