Maybe a semester away from her friends won’t be so bad after all.

As his world implodes, Lila holds him together. As their own insecurities and doubts emerge, their new, fragile relationship is tested. Can Cade and Lila handle the ugly truths of falling in love when tensions flare, boundaries are violated, and uncertainty looms over the future of their relationship?
