Don't accept drinks from strangers! Janey is lucky Len is always watching her, even though he won't approach her suggestion of a hookup with a ten-foot pole. Janey has had a crush on Len since she was a girl and became best friends with his sister. After taking her home with him to keep an eye on her all night after it is discovered she was drugged, he's suddenly on board with dating. What's up with that?
Len was deeply affected by his mom's passing when he was fifteen. And the ripples just keep going through his life today. He's afraid to love, to commit, to have any kind of relationship with a woman for fear he'll lose her. But Janey has always been his weakness. What starts with an expiration date quickly changes into dreams of a forever love, but Len can't let that happen due to his fears.
This was a little bit of a downer at times, and I really felt for Len, but thought he took it too far. I was thrilled Janey made him grovel appropriately though. A little unbelievable at times, especially in one area, but over all a good read and recommended.
His goal is to stand firm
As the middle child in a big family, Len Thompson has found it easy to slip under the radar. His relationships outside the family-run garage tend to run a mile wide but only an inch deep as he keeps his heart, body and soul protected. But when the one woman he's always wanted makes it known she'll soon be leaving town, he can't resist letting her into his carefully constructed fortress.
Her gift is rocking his world
Chasing her best friend's big brother has both entertained and frustrated Janey for years. She's not sure what triggered his change of heart, but hell, yeah, she'll accept it. All of it. Every kiss, every touch, every bit of body-shaking pleasure. Working to meet her renovation deadline is suddenly not nearly as interesting as the mind-blowing escapades she's enjoying with the big sexy mechanic.
When old fears threaten, Len must finally choose--face his past or let their future crumble.
