Coming Home by Priscilla Glenn
Coming Home got all kinds of good reviews, so I broke down and bought it!  And I LOVED it.  Here is the synopsis.
Leah Marino hasn’t been on a date in two years. After discovering the man she loved had manipulated and deceived her, she refuses to even entertain the idea of a relationship. Instead, she focuses her attention on taking care of her family, a role she’s assumed since the death of her mother and the one place she knows her kindness won't be taken advantage of again.
When a nostalgic trip back to her childhood home results in a chance encounter with Danny DeLuca, a smart-mouthed mechanic who’s as attractive as he is mysterious, Leah's carefully cultivated walls begin to crumble. She finds herself unexpectedly drawn to Danny, despite his unreliable behavior and mixed signals.
But Danny has a secret...
One that could shake Leah's already precarious foundation and bring her world crashing down around her. Suddenly, she's faced with an incredibly difficult decision--is she willing to risk everything for the chance at finding the love she's always wanted? Or are some obstacles just too big for the heart to overcome?
Let me start out by saying I loved Leah.  She was a strong compassionate character that I could completely relate to.  And even though from the beginning we get mixed signals from Danny, you couldn't help but root for him.  We know from the beginning that there is something going on with Danny, but I had no idea what it was.  And I was blown away when we found out what it was, I did not see that coming at all.  
Some parts made me cry, as well as laugh.  I also really liked Danny, once we figure out his secret and why he was all over the place, he is a great male lead.  This story is heartbreaking, and beautifully written.  I felt like the synopsis was incredibly vague and I really had no expectations, but I really loved it, the author sucked me into Leah and Danny's story.  I would love more!
