Seventeen-year-old Maddie Davis has spent her whole life on the move. With an unstable mother who has a knack for making bad decisions, she’s never stayed in one place long enough to remember its postcode. But this time is different. This time, she has been dragged half way across the world. Arriving in California and being forced to go back to school feels like stepping back in time. She wants to go home…
Until she meets Blaine Elwood – the stepson of an old family friend.
Blaine appears to have it all. To the outside world, quarterback Blaine is rich, confident, and rocks the ‘arrogant bad boy’ image down to a tee. But nobody knows the demons that lurk beneath the façade. Nobody ever can. He has vowed never to let anyone get too close, let anyone discover how weak he really is. So when new girl Maddie starts tugging at strings he didn’t know existed in his heart, his only option is to push her away…
Until he realises how much he needs her.
When shattered secrets and splintered lies start unravelling around them, will the trust they’ve worked so hard to build be irreparably destroyed? Or will they realise they are two pieces of the same broken puzzle?
