Romantic love is something Gabby Cooley-Burke believes in with all her heart. When her great love died, she was left with her wonderful son and memories that should last her a lifetime. Despite encouragement from her girl tribe to begin dating again, she is convinced that this should be enough. Ten-year-old Jeremy is hers alone to care for, but that challenge isn’t all she faces when she loses her job.
Rick Chagres is protecting his son Will as well, perhaps a little too much. But when Jeremy and Will are partnered together in science class, their personalities clash and a fight ensures, bringing their parents to meet under less than ideal circumstances. Tolerating no risks when it comes to his boy, giving Gabby his trust is the last thing Rick anticipates. Her caring brings out the best in his sullen son, even as she leads Rick to dream about expectations he thought were out of the question.
As Gabby and Rick agree to work together for the sake of their boys, they are unaware that a teacher’s suggestion is about to change both of their lives forever. Is love is enough to protect them all from the danger looming in their future?
