Injured veteran Mitch Cooper doesn't know what's missing in his life. Bartender Charlene Carver is just looking for some fun. When Mitch asks Charlene out, both thought it was for a night of dinner and maybe a little more.
But, when an attacker viciously stabs Charlene in the middle of their date, any future they might have together is in jeopardy. Can caring for Charlene give Mitch the sense of purpose and reason to quit running from his past that he needs?
Even after Charlene's attacker is caught, Charlene is still in danger. Keeping Charlene safe is all that Mitch can think of. Reconciling Mitch with his past becomes Charlene's priority.
Together they are stronger, but are they strong enough to move past the tragedy of their first date to make the life together that neither knew they wanted.
