Russell Walker’s life was spared when his truck veered off the road and flipped. When he wakes after surgery, he can only assume the medicines are making him see things, because the woman he loved—who broke his heart—is taking his vitals.
Chelsea Quinn has spent the past four years keeping clear of Russell Walker after she married another man and had a baby. Now she is thrust back into his life as his caretaker, and living with his family when her ex-husband is let out of prison.
Some heartbreaks are too severe to recover from, and Russell is fighting every feeling he has as not to get his heart broken again. But sometimes the pull of love is just too strong, especially when the lives of those you love are threatened, and someone is looking for revenge.
Russell watched Chelsea and Lucas from the back door. He sure had a lot of energy, and she had a genuine smile to match. Russell had been prepared for it to hurt when he saw them together, but even he could admit, he’d never made her as happy as she was just looking at the chickens with her son.
“He loves his mommy,” his mother said as she set a plate of food on the table next to him.
“I didn’t know what to expect when I saw him—or her here for that matter.”
“She needs us and you need her,” his mother sat down next to him. “Be open minded.”
“I’ll do my best,” he said with a hint of sarcasm. Then he relaxed in his chair. “I’ll admit, I’m not sure what my mood will be now that I’m home. Sitting in this damn chair only pisses me off.”
“It’s part of your recovery. Be strong of mind and you’ll recover physically,” she offered as she took a piece of cheese from the plate she’d brought him and popped it into her mouth.
“I shouldn’t be in this chair at all,” he said, turning to face her. “I wasn’t drunk that night. I don’t remember losing control of my truck. I don’t remember anyone running me off the road either.”
“But Phillip said you were and they found the truck that did it.”
He nodded. “He told me. Her ex-husband’s truck.”
“And it was parked outside of her house,” his mother whispered as if it were a secret.
