He acts like he barely knows her.
But she knows he’s the one.
Matt Banks was ready to tell Harper Sanders that he loved her, that he’d always loved her and that even though they were young, she was his forever girl.
Then her brother stepped in, wanting more for his sister than a garage owner. Too young to stand up for himself, Matt made her brother a promise that he’s regretted every day since.
After years of being ignored by the guy she’s always loved, Harper is on a dating binge. No one is Matt, but a girl can keep on trying. Then she gets stranded on the side of the road, and she has no choice but to call the only mechanic in town.
Matt comes to her rescue, and then to her bed. It’s an idyllic, passion-filled weekend—but there’s still the matter of his promise. And a man’s word is his bond.

Seriously cute and hot
Ah right, they’re Em’s best friend and the town mechanic that we met in Take Me Down. I wasn’t expecting a story for them, even though there was definitely something brewing between the two. Although I’m not sure that this was the exact dynamic….but never mind that, onto the story.
Matt’s in love with Harper but can never let her know because of a promise he made. But he’s tired of being held to a promise made as a boy. Harper is in love with Matt but after years of being ignored, she’s ready to move on with her life. Cue frustration, lust and longing. My favourite kind of misery! And it couldn’t happen to a nicer pair!
Cue a perfectly timed auto-mechanical failure, an impromptu trip and a lack of available rooms, and we have an explosion of said lust and longing that’s been a long time coming. And yum, this got those butterflies in the tummy dancing for me. It was sweet and oh so cute but with a heavy dose of hot and sexy right alongside it. And titty fucking? Yes, please!
Carly Phillips’ writing continues to shine through, and although this is a short story (only 38 pages that’ll take you about half an hour to read) it still packs a punch and tells a decent story from beginning to end.
Definitely a bonus for those interested in the Knight series, or just Carly Phillips in general. I think it probably works as a standalone, too. A quick, cute and dirty story – what could be better? 5 stars.
