Vicki needs our book help! I have a guess (but quite likely way off).
I wonder if it’s Madeline Sheehan’s “Unattainable“. The details in my mind are fuzzy (it’s been a few years since I’ve read it), but some of what Vicki describes brought this one to mind right away for me (namely the biker named “Dirty” <— so broken and I loved reading about him so much). P.S. Here’s my Book Review. 😉
I have been trying to find a book for ages. I was hoping you and your readers could help me out.
