For as long as Scarlett can remember, Nelson Steel is the constant in her life. He's her best friend, her confidant, her secret. He dries her tears with rough, stained hands. Teaches her to drive. Looks after her as she flirts with dating and even shows her how to kiss.She never tells anyone about the older boy next door because he depends on her, too. Every time his dad beats him up, she takes care of him. When he's lonely, she keeps him company.Her dysfunctional family, for all their problems, only helps her see what she truly wants in life. And, that's Nelson.Until the worst night of her life when she hears the arguing, the gunshots, and loses him.She never imagines him coming home ten years later. But there he is, waiting for her on the other side of the fence.Hardened.Bossy.And, sexier than ever.There're only three things Nelson cares about, his motorcycle, Steel Mechanics, and Scarlett. One gives him freedom, the other income, and…well, Scarlett, she's the sunshine in his life. He's thought about her every second of every day for ten long years.But his path back to her is filled with violence, and he has a massive target on his back. The only crime he's guilty of is loving Scarlett, and he'll fight everyone in Missoula if it means having another chance with her.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Captivated from the start. Well written with a realistic feel that will tug your emotions. Engaging characters. Nelson and Scarlett have always had a rare kind of relationship. Building a bond, a connection no one understood. A good guy stuck in a family of bad apples. Abused himself but always protective of his "fox". Nelson is the one constant in her life someone Scarlett counted on and believes in even after the years where he was wrongly sent away. They have a love that was meant to be. Worth the obstacles to get there. Loved!! Would recommend reading. Can't wait for more!
