She's driven to save a life.
He's haunted by breaking one.
Some secrets are to risky to share.
But nothing's more dangerous than falling in love...
Nineteen-year-old Sophie doesnât listen to the naysayers because she has hope. The kind of hope that makes you do weird thingsâlike travel two thousand miles away from everyone she knows and loves to a strange city.
So what if her first night in Los Angeles starts with a small misstepâa brief trip to the ER after twenty-one-year-old Alejandro, the hottest guy sheâs ever met, saves her during a bar fight on the USCLA campus.
The stakes are high for Sophieâlife and deathâas she seeks answers to dark questions in a city that can be a slice of heaven, or a piece of hell. Sheâs running out of time on her journey to find healing. Falling for a guy isnât part of her plan. But healing doesnât always come the way you think you need it.
Sophieâs healing is six-foot-two-inches tall, has stunning hazel eyes, black, shiny hair and a rock solid chest that shelters her. Her healing is Alejandro.
But heâs not your typical college party boyâhe has a dangerous past. Sophie isnât the only one who keeps secrets. As they fall in love, he fears his truth might hurt her. And Sophie doesnât know if she has the courage to tell him:
He canât break herâbecause sheâs already broken.
A Story of Hope. A Story of Love. A Story of Redemption.
âGoodnight, Ralph.â I smiled and walked to my apartmentâs door and put the right key in the lock.
âWait! Whoâs Ralph?â
I turned and regarded him. He looked confused. Gorgeous, delicious, but confused. I was so good at messing with Alpha boys. âOh, gosh. Iâm just an innocent Cheesehead.â I shrugged my shoulders, batted my eyes and pretended to swoon. âWhat do I know?â
âApparently more than I gave you credit for,â he said.
âAbout time.â I opened the door to my place and stepped inside. âThanks forââ
âWhat do I get when I figure it out?â He stared at me. âI meanâwhen I figure out the Ralph reference I should at least win a prize or something for my efforts.â
âYouâre never going to figure it out.â
âDonât underestimate me.â
âWhat kind of prize do you want?â I asked.
âI want to kiss you,â he said.
A shiver zipped up and down my spine. I thought about it for a moment. Realized heâd never find the right answer. Heâd also lose all interest in me the more he drove me. He thought I was exotic. I knew I was boring. So my reply was easy.
âYes, Alejandro,â I said. âYes, you can kiss me if you figure it out.â I shut my door, leaned back against it and smiled.
But who was counting?
