Curtis Clark stepped back to scrutinize his work. The split rail fence he’d just built was kick-ass…the rest of his life, not so much.
Taking a gulp of water, he frowned. Life was like a nightmare he couldn’t wake up from. Two months ago, he’d been living the dream racing in the NASCAR Truck Series, and now he was doing random carpentry jobs. He rubbed at the tight feeling in his chest and got back to work. He’d just placed the next piece of wood when something fuzzy brushed against his leg. He jerked back and then laughed when a wriggling black Lab squeezed in between him and the fence.
“Hey, there.” CC squatted down to rub the Lab’s neck and was rewarded with a doggie grin. “Where did you come from?”
The dog licked his face, eliciting happy memories from CC’s childhood. “You’re a sweet girl,” he cooed after taking a peek to determine gender. “Are you a stray?”
“She’s not a stray.”
His mind and body vibrated like his truck engine at the beginning of a race. He hadn’t heard that female voice in over ten years, but it was ingrained in his heart and his soul. He couldn’t turn around, couldn’t move, couldn’t even breathe.
Holly Nicholson—his high school sweetheart, the love of his life…the woman who had shattered his heart.
