How can their relationship survive when it’s built on half-truths? 

McKenna Series #3
Jamie Hollins
Releasing July 18, 2017


When heroin stole James Foley’s wife and destroyed his marriage, he poured all his energy into raising his young son and running his auto garage. There’s no room in his life for anything else until Megan McKenna walks into his shop. He finds it impossible to resist the sexy school teacher.
After an ugly divorce, Megan lost her home, her job, and a big chunk of her self-respect. With her posh lifestyle now a memory, she starts over by
indulging in an unexpected fling with a hard-bodied mechanic.
What begins as something casual turns into something meaningful. But how can their relationship survive when it’s built on half-truths? 
James and Megan soon discover that being honest with themselves is just as important as being honest with each other. Only then will their relationship fire on all cylinders.

James wants nothing more than to raise his son and run his auto repair shop. He isn’t interested in love after his ex-wife had unrecognized postpartum depression that led to a heroin addiction. He tried to help her but after many failed attempts he took their son and left when he came to the realization that she would always pick the drug.
Megan thought she had it all. She was living a life of luxury until she found her husband of 7 years cheating on her. She leaves him and ends up with no job, no home, and no car. Falling back on her teaching degree, she ends up with a roommate and a car that is basically a piece of junk.
Megan ends up at James auto shop and he instantly thinks she was like every other privileged customer since she is a former customer of his. She proves him wrong though and the two of them are able to learn from their past mistakes to have a good relationship.
This is the first book by Jamie Hollins that I have read and I really enjoyed it. Both Megan and James had experienced the pain of a marriage ending and instead of it making them bitter, they used the experience to learn how a relationship is supposed to work. They both were a little hesitant of course but I enjoyed watching their relationship blossom.
