2014 год. Bantam Ty Svenson likes to get his hands dirty, fixing his motorcycle at night; keeping his mind off past mistakes. After years of running, he's parked himself in Bishop, Arkansas, trying to parent a son he didn't know he had until recently. Then his pretty neighbor shows up on his driveway to complain about the noise. First impression? She should loosen up. Funny that she turns out to be his son's elementary school art teacher--and the only one willing to help his troubled boy. Wyatt needs her. In more ways than one. Shelby Monroe is drawn to Ty's bad boy edge and rugged sexuality. What if she just lets it all go: her worries about her mother, her fear of heartbreak, and her tight self control? "What if" becomes real--intense, exhilarating . . . and addictive. And Ty is determined to convince her to take the biggest risk of her life: on him.
