Hard-edged rocker Graham Allen has it all. He's flush with cash from playing bass in a band by night and restoring classic cars by day. And there are plenty of women willing to share his bed for a night, complication-free. Perfect, because if there's anything he learned from his past, it was to never get attached—to anything. So when bartender Carly Sullivan flashes her innocent smile, Graham isn't prepared for what happens next.
Never fall in love
Two rules, that's all Graham has—never apologize and never fall in love. He knows Carly is everything he should avoid. Cheerful and sweet, she has "relationship" written all over her. But Graham can't stay away from her probing questions and concerned blue eyes.
When Graham discovers Carly is hiding a crushing secret, he's prepared to risk it all. Until in one single moment, everything changes and Graham's past threatens to collide with his future. His life is crumbling down around him, and soon no apology in the world can save him.
He should've known to walk away.
Graham was a lady's man. He never promised them anything more than sex. But the last few months he was going to a bar only to see a young and beautiful woman, Carly. Her smile made his days better. Everytime he was getting close to her she was pulling back and he could see fear in her eyes. Graham had another problem, after twelve years his addicted mother came looking for him and he was not happy about it. With all the problems and his own fears he hurt Carly many times but he wasn't going to apologise. He really liked her and showed her that he wanted her. But Graham also made it clear that he didn't know anything about relationships. When his mom showed up she had a big surprise for him. Carly liked him alot and even though she had her own issues she tried to get close to him but he made it so difficult with his bad attitude. His fear and insecurities drove her away, he was ok with that decision until the night he realised that she was the only woman he wanted/needed to be with. He had only one shot to fix everything. His honesty helped him earn Carly back.
A love story about two broken people. Graham was abused as a child by his mother and that made him a bit cynical plus he tried to stay away from any kind of relationships. That changed when he met Carly. Carly is a beautiful kind girl who always smiled. She had her own haunted past that kept her away from men. After many years a man was able to get closer to her and that was Graham. They thought that they were broken and couldn't be fixed but they were wrong, they were each other's cure.
