One phone call was all it took to bring me back to the small town I had grown up in. Everything had changed, and staying away was no longer an option.
Four and a half years later, I was a widowed single father still here, still trying to pick up the pieces. We were doing just fine on our own, my little girl and me.
At least, we were until Camryn Parker stumbled into our lives. The woman was like a tornado after a hurricane; she was the storm I never saw approaching. Behind her beauty and sarcastic wit, she was just as broken as I pretended not to be. As hard as I tried to resist, it was impossible not to fall in love with her.
In the end, it took nearly losing it all for me to realize everything I never wanted was exactly what I needed.
