Hurt and betrayed after being told she isn’t enough, Mikayla Matthews is convinced that no man will ever truly want her. After packing up her shattered heart and relocating to start over, she literally falls for a man who wants to fight for her wary heart.
Strong and extremely protective of those he loves, Alex North finds himself on unfamiliar territory when he becomes the guardian of his five-year-old nephew. When a beautiful stranger lands in his lap, Alex feels an immediate connection, only to have her walk away.
Brought together by fate on several occasions, Alex senses Mikayla is the key to heal not only his nephew, but himself. Mikayla discovers she has the strength to give love a second chance as well as the courage to fight for it. But outside forces threaten to destroy their happiness, and Alex and Mikayla must dig deep within themselves to keep the past and present from destroying their relationship and the little boy they both love.
