*Today marks the last #8Sunday Sample of Lonely Heart! Over the last few weeks, I’ve shared excerpts from Chapters 1-3, letting each main character’s voice be heard as they share a bit about themselves and their story. I hope you liked it! For more information about the characters, follow this link to learn more about Kaitlyn and Antonio.*
Kaitlyn has a dilemma. Her sister has been kicked out of her home and is now on a bus to come live with her. Being pregnant, living alone, dealing with financial issues, and a broke down car, the last thing she needs is a problem picking her sister up from the bus station. To her surprise, Antonio offers to take her where she needs to go since he has been unable to have her car repaired in time. What does she think about the situation?
At least if I was now accepting rides from strangers, it helped he was attractive, or at least he could be. The last time I saw him he was wearing dirty overalls covered in grease and grime.
I went to my closet to find something to wear and tried remembering what he looked like. His hair was jet black and thick. He wore a five o’clock shadow that framed a nice pair of lips and warm smile. His red-brown eyes were very observant.
Not that any of that mattered…
At least once in his car there’d be no running away from telling me when my car would be ready
Instead of planning her wedding, Kaitlyn Rodgers is facing motherhood alone, the pressures of a new job, and caring for her rebellious younger sister. What should have been the happiest time of her life turns into one stressful event after another.
After watching his father struggle to raise a family by himself, auto mechanic Antonio Rodriguez refuses to follow his father’s footsteps…even if it means a lifetime of loneliness.
When Kaitlyn’s car breaks down, though, Antonio goes beyond auto repairs to take care of her needs. An unexpected friendship begins, allowing them a glimpse of happiness…until the father of Kaitlyn’s child returns, ready to offer her marriage and a future. But at what cost?
