After losing part of his leg in a motorcycle accident, Marty Reed realizes he can either give in to bitterness or overcome his challenges. He’s worked hard to rebuild his strength, but all the plans from his life before the accident were completely derailed. Instead, he lives day to day, focusing on his job, and flirting with women who have no clue about his hidden scars. Until he meets Emma, the one woman who leaves him longing for more.
For Emma Laughlin, a heart transplant means a second chance at life. Her sister insists it’s time for Emma to look to the future.

Emma’s resolve, however, is threatened when the man she admires turns his sights on her, changing all the rules.
