Twenty-two-year-old Kayla Lyon is a feisty waitress saving up to live out her dreams of going to school to become a nurse. Her real dream is to become a doctor, but as a kid who grew up in the foster care system, she’s used to facing reality and making due with the hand she’s dealt. Buried in bills and struggling to build her savings and a better life, she picks up extra shifts at the diner to make more money. But it still isn’t nearly enough.
When a mysterious stranger shows up and starts leaving hundred dollar tips for Kayla, she worries that the man wants more than just good food. But when Dylan Robertson steps in to protect her from another customer who is harassing Kayla, she realizes that his bad boy exterior and devil may care attitude are hiding a sweeter, kinder man than she imagined.
