Left widowed, destitute, and emotionally hurt, Mercy Grant doesn’t intend to remarry, much less to a known player like Ethan Echeverría. Never mind that he’s her one-time teenage crush and a longtime friend. But when her son, Stevie, needs an expensive surgery, risking her heart is a small price to pay for her little boy’s happiness.
Ethan Echeverría leaves women before they have a chance to leave him the way his mother once abandoned him. Then his dad gives him an ultimatum: get married and become the owner of the family auto shop chain or stay single and lose it.
Considering Ethan has always cared for Mercy, getting married might result in more than ownership of the shops and a loving father for Stevie. It could be the second chance they need. Their feelings toward each other grow, but so does Mercy’s jealousy. When Ethan’s past crashes into his future, will she end up heartbroken and alone again?
