Secrets draw them together, will lies tear them apart?
Seventeen-year-old Blue-Wren wants to belong, but no one wants you when your mum is a compulsive hoarder.
Jacob, the small town’s athletic star, isn’t interested in everyone’s smothering pity, or his father’s overbearing expectations. He wants out. But first, he must save Pluto, his dead brother’s rescue dog.
If saving Pluto means friendship with the social reject, so be it. Only no one can find out. What Jacob doesn’t know is that Blue-Wren has secrets too. Big secrets.
Suspicions are aroused. Bullies rise up. The town is against her.
Will the unravelling of truth tear them apart?
He has something that belongs to her, something he can’t give back.
Single dad Lennox Conrad—Nox—a tattooist with a troubled past, is trying to get his life back on track. So, when Nakita Faulkner walks into his parlour determined to get a tattoo she obviously doesn’t want, Nox is more than a little intrigued. As drawn as he is to her, bookish innocents aren’t really his type. Besides, there are circumstances beyond his control, and time is running out.
One night, Nakita’s world is turned upside down. A strange twist of fate throws her back into the path of Nox. She discovers something about him that compels her to make an unusual proposition—a proposition he cannot refuse.
Will the very thing that draws them together, tear them apart?
