College freshman Alana Novak still lives at home with her controlling father. She has a baking blog and a habit of breaking curfew, especially since she met her first love, Dakota Bennett. But fate has other things in mind. And when unspeakable tragedy snuffs out Dakota’s life, Alana turns to the only person who shares her grief.
For years, guitarist Mikah Bennett’s existence has revolved around his band, Midnight Rust-he knows they’re about to break out. So when lead singer, Dakota, his younger half-brother, is killed, he’s shaken to his core.
Survivor’s guilt brings Mikah and Alana closer and as they spend more time together, they realize their connection runs deeper than just a trauma bond. The emotion simmering below the surface should feel wrong, but it doesn’t.
Sadly, the deck is stacked against Alana and Mikah. Can love win or are they destined to go their separate ways?
