She's driven to save a life.
He's haunted by breaking one.
Some secrets are too risky to share.
But nothing's more dangerous than falling in love...
Nineteen-year-old Sophie doesn’t listen to the naysayers because she has
hope. The kind of hope that makes you do weird things—like 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 misstep—a brief
trip to the ER after twenty-one-year-old Alejandro, the hottest guy she’s
ever met, saves her during a bar fight on the USCLA campus.
The stakes are high for Sophie—life and death—as she seeks answers
to dark questions in a city that can be a slice of heaven, or a piece of hell.
She’s running out of time on her journey to find healing. Falling for a guy
isn’t part of her plan. But healing doesn’t always come the way you think
you need it.
Sophie’s 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 he’s not your typical college party boy—he has a dangerous past.
Sophie isn’t the only one who keeps secrets. As they fall in love, he fears
his truth might hurt her. And Sophie doesn’t know if she has the courage to
He can’t break her—because she’s already broken.
A Story of Hope. A Story of Love. A Story of Redemption.

“Goodnight, Ralph.” I smiled and walked to my apartment’s door and
put the right key in the lock.
“Wait! Who’s Ralph?”
I turned and regarded him. He looked confused. Gorgeous, delicious,
but confused. I was so good at messing with Alpha boys. “Oh, gosh. I’m just
an innocent Cheesehead.” I shrugged my shoulders, batted my eyes and
pretended to swoon. “What do I know?”
“Apparently more than I gave you credit for,” he said.
“About time.” I opened the door to my place and stepped inside.
“What do I get when I figure it out?” He stared at me. “I mean—when I

“Don’t underestimate me.”
“What kind of prize do you want?” I asked.
