When Maria sees Alexis needs help she sends the mother and daughter to her own mother's house, who is delighted to help the young woman she met earlier in the day.
So starts the relationship between Colt and Alexis. There is an instant attraction between the two, but is this the right time for Alexis to start a new relationship? Can she trust that Colt won't hurt her or her little girl?
Colt never thought he would want to be in a relationship, but everything goes out the window where he meets these two.
These books get increasingly better as the story goes along. I'm not sure, but am wondering if there will be more to the series. Colt is a warm-hearted guy who loses his heart to Alexis and Maddie. Alexis shows a lot of strength to pick up and drive across country to get away from the abusive boyfriend and to even think about taking a chance on someone new.
