Publisher's Summary

When life breaks you, love can heal you... or run you over.
A broken heart and a preference for solitude leads Web Baker to driving a street sweeper on the night shift for Basil City. His mother wants grandchildren, and his sister is intent on fixing him up with every dimwitted beauty she can find. Add that to the late night antics Web encounters on his nightly shifts and he has more than enough excitement to keep him on his toes, but nothing could prepare him for the woman who stumbles into his sweeper's headlights.
Kara Deleray has never learned how to be herself, leading to a lifetime of bad decisions. She hits rock bottom and ends up moving in with her best friend and her husband. With their help, she manages to land a job teaching English at Basil State University. Finally pulling her life together, a whiskey soaked night almost tears everything she's worked for apart.

Review

This is a very emotional story and I really felt a strong empathy towards the characters. Wandering from relationship to relationship and never finding one's soul mate can be devastating. The author seems to really understand that feeling and the mistakes people make especially as they get older and start to give up. Rayna read the story in a moving and sensitive way and as the story progressed I could tell she felt the ups and downs and conveyed that in her voice. When things improved or something good happened she strived to get that across and share that joy with the reader.
This is a wonderful story because it is so very true to life. It really does mirror the struggle so many people have to find a life partner. It's not just that, but so many nice people are cheated on and are scared to trust again. I am so glad I listened to this story the author is really good.
