Get ready to meet Luke’s shy big brother, Collin, and Charli’s stuck up bestie, Lonna and the unbreakable bond that neither can deny…
Lonna Stuart is proud to be the most beautiful girl most people have ever seen. But on the inside she’s dying. Her mother’s grating comments and her boyfriend’s obsessive control are suffocating her.
There’s only one person who sees the real Lonna. Son of the infamous Bourbon Butcher, Collin toes an invisible line of perfection.
He’s a football prodigy; a hard-working employee; and, what Lonna’s boyfriend considers, a retard. A slight stutter deters Collin from making too many friends, and he sees things most people miss. He sees the pain in Lonna’s eyes and the sadness in her frown.
When she nearly drowns, Collin’s the only one willing to sacrifice himself to save her. Inspired by Collin’s overwhelming kindness, Lonna begins to pull away from her asphyxiating life and defend herself. But, unbeknownst to them, in a prison hundreds of miles away, Collin’s father is busy planning an epic escape.
