At fifteen, Amanda Grace was abducted on her way home from school. 738 days later, she escaped. Her 20/20 interview is what everyone remembers—Amanda describing the room where she was kept, the torn poster of TV heartthrob Chase Henry on the wall. It reminded her of home and gave her the strength to keep fighting.
Now, years later, Amanda is struggling to live normally. Her friends have gone on to college, while she battles PTSD. She’s not getting any better, and she fears that if something doesn’t change soon she never will.
Six years ago, Chase Henry defied astronomical odds, won a coveted role on a new TV show, and was elevated to super-stardom. With it, came drugs, alcohol, arrests, and crazy spending sprees. Now he's sober and a Hollywood pariah, washed up at twenty-four.
To revamp his image, Chase’s publicist comes up with a plan: surprise Amanda Grace with the chance to meet her hero, followed by a visit to the set of Chase’s new movie. The meeting is a disaster, but out of mutual desperation, Amanda and Chase strike a deal. What starts as a simple arrangement, though, rapidly becomes more complicated when they realize they need each other in more ways than one. But when the past resurfaces in a new threat, will they stand together or fall apart?
With charm and heart, Stacey Kade takes readers on a journey of redemption and love.

At age 16, Amanda Grace was abducted by her former bus driver, Jonathon Jakes. For two years, he kept her chained in a secret basement room, just blocks from her Pennsylvania home, and repeatedly raped her. She focused on a poster of teen heartthrob actor Chase Henry, using his image to anchor her sanity. Now 20, she suffers anxiety, panic attacks, and flashbacks, and her family is imploding. Chase, whose bad decisions have sent his career spiraling downward, decides to get some good press by showing up at the grocery store where Amanda works and surprising her. The stunt backfires, but Chase apologizes and asks her to visit him on a nearby movie set for a few days, and soon they begin to connect. The intense psychological drama of Amanda struggling to heal her broken spirit makes for riveting reading. Skillfully weaving Chase's troubled history into the story, Kade (Bitter Pill) drops just the right amount of humor into the mix of regret, shame, determination, and love. A stalker complicates the dynamic story line, leading to a spectacular ending. Readers will long remember the love story between these complex characters.
