Liv Phelps is a woman on a mission: Get a degree, stay independent, and start a new life away from her small hometown. Love is nowhere on that list.
However, when dashing Blaine Harris enters the diner where Liv works, she’s flattered enough to give him a chance. Different from anyone she’s ever known, he introduces her the world she’s long dreamed about. Things are going surprisingly well, until he pushes her to get her beat-down car seen by the local mechanic.
Connor Hunt has been at the very top of Liv’s ‘do not disturb’ list ever since she had a front row seat to watching him create his terrible reputation. A magician with cars, he can’t stand to see a machine suffer. So, he comes up with a plan to fix Liv’s in spite of her inability to pay.
But will his solution cost more than she’s prepared to give?
The sound of the door opening from the mechanic shop interrupted me and I glanced up to see Connor Hunt coming into the lobby.
He nodded at the phone in my hand. “Looking at anything good?”
“A physiology text book.”
“Sure. Good choice for some light reading on a snowy weekend afternoon.”
“I’m learning ways to cause the most pain with the least damage,” I replied in a sugary sweet voice.
He nodded slowly as though I’d just told him I was knitting a doily. “Ah. That would probably come in handy sometimes.”
“Indeed.” I put my phone back in my bag and zipped it closed. “Is my car ready?”
“Yep. Everything went well. Total is the nine hundred I quoted you.”
“Okay. What are your thoughts on payment seeing as you know I’m broke?”
“I have an idea if you’re open to discussing other options for payment.”
My gut clenched and my face warmed. Here we go. He’d pulled the wool over other people’s eyes, but things were about to get real. “Depends on what ‘other options for payment’ you might have in mind.”
His brows lowered. “What are you talking about?”
“I’m not going to pay off my debts by, like, kissing you and stuff.” My face burned, but I kept eye contact with him, knowing it was important to not back down.
“Liv Phelps, does your mother know what kind of thoughts go through that head of yours?” he asked with wide eyes that seemed oddly surprised for someone who’d I’d long suspected of having underhanded dealings.
The only sound in the lobby was that of my pounding heartbeats. I wasn’t sure what had just happened. I took a deep breath, playing the conversation back in my mind as I watched his expression turn stony. Oh. Maybe I’d jumped the gun here.
“So,” I cleared my throat and swallowed. “I may have jumped to conclusions.”
I scrunched up my nose and fidgeted a bit. “Okay. I’m ready to talk about payment options.”
“I’m rethinking what I was going to offer,” he replied.
