Just ask nineteen year-old Aurora.
She’s dealt with it for the past two years. Effing car crash.
Resigned to live a mediocre life with her friends Percocet and Xanax, she’s coped on her own. Terrified of stepping beyond her backyard, broken and damaged Aurora doesn’t need anyone, anyways. Until she meets – him.
Shy but smoking hot, Nate Johnson has a mouth as smart as hers, and can handle every ounce of sass she dishes out. Immediately, he’s hooked by Aurora’s sarcastic wit. A man on a mission, he wants to help her over her fear of cars. He needs to, if he’s ever going to have her as part of his world – a passion he’s kept hidden from her. As he succeeds with the impossible goal, he finds he’s curing more than just her PTSD, he’s healing her heart.
But when her fears collide with his passion, it drives Aurora away.
From the best thing to ever happen to her.
Because sometimes love just isn’t enough.
However, Nate wants her back and he’s willing to give up everything he loves for her. Aurora refuses to have him sacrifice his passion because of her, and dreams up a risky plan to stop him. It’s dangerous. It’s foolish. And if it doesn’t kill her first, it could just save them both.

Three friends. Two loves. One choice.
Leo, Quinn and Nate . . . we’ve been the Trio all of our lives. I’m the oldest, thanks to my premature birth. Leo and Quinn are the closest things I have to a brother and sister, even though the feelings I have for Quinn go way beyond friendship.
I’ve been in love with Quinn since junior high. Maybe even before then. She’s always been my fierce protector, the one person who looks beyond my physical challenges to see who I really am. I know the hard truth, though. Leo holds her heart. He’s the one she loves.
Who could blame her? Leo’s the football star, the guy all the girls in school want. When he and Quinn finally admit their feelings for each other, it almost destroys me. Leo may be one of my best friends, but he’s still not good enough for Quinn. Even though he might not see it, he puts the game before the girl. Football comes first for him, and it could cost him more than he realizes.
But all I can do is sit back and watch . . . and be there to pick up the pieces when it all comes crashing to an end.
***This is Book #1 of a trilogy, and it does include an unresolved ending. ***
