In Need of a Tow
Katherine, an unhappy housewife decides to take a trip to northern Michigan to visit some friends. Her car breaks down only fifty miles from her destination and when she calls for a tow, she never expected to meet the man of her dreams in the much younger Brian.
Brian couldn't believe the immediate pull he felt toward the woman who had called for a tow truck. He was quite sure she was older than him, but it didn't matter. With one look, he'd fallen head over heels for her.After an intense first encounter, they begin a life together-a life full of drama and romance. Can they overcome their age difference to achieve a happily ever after?
"This book had a good story line as well as great characters. I felt for Brian and Katherine. [When] there were sad moments, I cried and when there were happy moments, I smiled. I am in need of more…Vivian Vincent."
After the huge snow storm we had in September you wouldn't know it'd ever happened if you looked outside now, most of the snow had melted. The sun was shining and it was unusually warm for late November; probably about forty degrees outside.
Brian called me nearly everyday, sometimes several times a day. He hadn't had much to do lately since the weather improved, so he had a lot of free time on his hands. I had set up a special room in my new building just for us, but we didn't get to use it much since now it was me who was so busy all the time. When he called me today, we didn't get to talk long, I had to hang up because someone was coming in and I hadn't recognized her and presumed she'd be a new client. Oh how wrong I was.
"Can I help you?" I asked.
"Not really. I just wanted to come in and see who stole my Brian's heart is all."
She was pushing a stroller and pulled the blanket off after she was in the building. The baby looked to be about a year old or so and had bright green eyes. My heart sank.
"I'd heard Brian fell head over heals for some older babe, so I had to come see for myself who it was. My name is Jennifer." She approached me with an outstretched hand.
"Kathy." I shook her hand loosely and quickly. "Why did you say 'my Brian'?"
"Well, its common knowledge Brian and I were an item until you came along."
I couldn't help but stare at the baby in the stroller with those vivid green eyes.
It couldn't be his, could it? "I'm sorry, Jennifer. If I would've known the two of you were dating when I met him, I never would've pursued him. But he never told me anything about you-or your baby." I hoped my tone didn't give away the fact I was trying to find out more about her relationship with Brian.
"Okay, we weren't quite an item. We broke up last Thanksgiving, but he still keeps in touch. He wants to be a part of the baby's life, you know. He's trying to be a good dad." She gave a warm smile. My heart stopped.
A good dad? "This baby is Brian's?"
"Yeah. Didn't he tell you?"
"No. He neglected to mention to me that he had a-a-"
"A son. His name is Adam."
"I'm at a loss for words. I mean I noticed the green eyes immediately, but I never thought-" I trailed off, feeling tears well up in my eyes.
"I'm sorry, Kathy. I didn't mean to upset you. I thought you knew. I thought he would've told you. I know you were worried he wouldn't stay with you since you couldn't have kids, but he-"
"How did you know I couldn't have kids?" I cut her off abruptly, the tone of my voice most definitely conveying my anger.
"Oh, I think I've said too much. I should go."
