Sam has never minded the tranquillity of living in a tiny coastal town, but when school finishes forever, her world begins to change. First she meets Jack, his blasé charm hiding a secret from his past. And dark broody Riley, her almost-boss from the café seems to only want one thing. Her.
But Sam is dealing with issues of her own. Her mother suffers a mental illness and their history is one that Sam tries desperately to forget. But fate has other plans, and when an unforeseen event wreaks havoc on Sam's life, Sam must face her long-held fears.
When Sam's world is rocked to its core, her instinct is to run. From Jack, her mother, and the pain that grips her heart. But Sam can't run forever, and she must find way to pick herself up and deal with an issue she's put off for far too long.
Can Sam allow Jack to be there for her when already he's suffered so much? Or will she finally succeed in pushing him away forever?
