Some say love finds you when you least expect it.
For over twenty years, Paul has kept to the road as a long-haul truck driver more than he’s been home. He isn’t running away from his past, he just prefers it stay where it belongs, in the past. It’s impossible to repeat mistakes which involved others if you have no one.
Right after high-school graduation, Crystal ran off with her “bad boy” boyfriend, Derek. She never anticipated things getting as bad as they did. She never expected to indulge in activities she did and to wound up not only hurting herself but hating herself. In the last year, she has decided to change her life and be a better person, but Derek finds her each time and obliterates all the effort she’s made.
Breaking free of him again, she stumbles into a truck stop and into Paul’s arms. A man desiring only solitude, and a woman wishing to escape her life become traveling companions. They find they not only share a physical attraction, but each discovers that together might just be where they should be. There’s more than the obvious concern of a big age difference hindering them from pursuing their relationship, and both will need to believe in themselves as individuals and as a couple to make it work.
