Max works at the family garage and falls in love with a mysterious coworker Tommy. They start a relationship in the secret, supposedly because of the workplace. May later find out he has a wife. Months later he makes her fall for him again. It's a complicated relationship, full of manipulation. He made her change herself, but nothing was ever enough.
Her breaking point comes after her adoptive mother dies. But through all of the struggles and tragedies that happened to her, she fights on.
It's a story of her life through the many struggles she faced. She is a deeply flawed character, but she learns and grows. Her arc from being just a mistress to having finally her HEA is inspiring. It's the kind of story that doesn't sugarcoat the struggles or hardship and hides the flaws in characters, but somehow you can help but love them anyway.
