Nolan is super sweet. With some of the heavier romance books out there, you can sometimes forget how swooning it is to have a guy that is a real gentleman that will open your car door and walk you to your front door at the end of the night. After spending some time in Jacksonville as a rather successful stock broker, he is let off when the newish company goes until, leaving him to return back home to his small town, working at his father’s car shop fixing up cars and other things with motors.
It’s as if an unasked for pray was answered when Nolan goes to Piper’s family farm to see if he can fix her father’s tractor when he sees Piper for the first time in years. Nolan is pretty much stunned when he first sees Piper, and the next couple of encounters aren’t much better when Piper literally runs into him walking out of a door.
Piper doesn’t give Nolan the time of day in the beginning until Nolan experiences a pretty severe allergic reaction that causes her to open her eyes and see what’s right in front of her.
As the story continues, they find out that these feelings are real are working on communicating them as they grow, but will this unexpectedly beautiful relationship be able to survive the future when there is so much up in the air?

Happy reading until next time,
