Nola Chambers has one goal in life: don’t end up like her mother. After Nola’s father dies, her mother falls into a never-ending cycle of depression, heartache, and failed relationships that leads Nola to conclude love is dangerous and must be avoided at all costs.
And her plan is working like a charm. Nola’s a year away from finishing college, works full time, and is doing a pretty good job of taking care of herself…until she meets Scout and her world is turned upside down.
Scout Clayborne is young, rich, and devilishly handsome, but he’s also alone. After being born on the wrong side of the tracks and being raised by abusive, drug-addicted parents, Scout doesn’t even believe love is possible….until he meets Nola and sees something in her that he just can’t resist.
Despite being drawn to each other, fear, doubt, and secrets from the past threaten to derail their relationship before it begins. Can Nola and Scout overcome it all to find happiness together, or will their challenges be too big to surmount?
