Finally! Kaylee Walsh has escaped her good-for-nothing ex and her small Tennessee hometown. She isn’t about to let car trouble and zero cash throw a wrench into her plans.
But Rick Braddock makes Kaylee an offer she can’t refuse: free car repairs in exchange for a month of babysitting. He’ll make sure she’s on her way because he knows he doesn’t stand a chance when a woman is blinded by big city lights.
Even though she’s hit a bump in the road, no way will Kaylee become attached to a hot single dad and his little girl. For her, it’s South Beach or bust.
But when Rick discovers what Kaylee’s hiding he fears she may have stolen more than just his heart. Were the sparks between them real? Or is she a thief who took him for a ride?
