For five years Jamie has managed to outrun his past, his pain, and anything remotely resembling an emotion. Now, with his probation over, he’s finally ready to leave town with plans to fade into the crowd and noise of Las Vegas. No more court-ordered grief counseling. No guardian trying to keep him out of trouble. He’s convinced all he needs is a blackjack table and a strong drink for the rest of his life.
Trixie believes she can tame the monster that keeps her tethered to Las Vegas. Her boyfriend, Eli, is difficult, but she can handle him. One night, however, her child’s in danger rather than herself, and she realizes running is the only chance they have to survive.
Jamie offers safe passage out of town on one condition—Trixie cannot pry into his past. With every mile they drive, they grow closer. But the storm that chases them won’t relent, and somehow they must find a way to weather it together.
