When his car gets recalled, River dreads a day wasted at the dealership. The sexy and overly helpful mechanic in charge of his car has him feeling a little better about the inconvenience.

No one is more surprised than Nash at how easily and quickly he finds his heart snagged by the guileless River. He’ll do anything to make River his, even if it means upending his own life.
