Luce Fallon has had a tough life.
At the age of twenty-one, she has lost her best friend, whom she had been in love with, and her parents in the space of five years. All were tragic car accidents. She has been damaged severely and only wants to die and be with those she loves.
Sitting in a motel room with only a whiskey bottle and gun to accompany her, she decides to choose her own fate and be with her parents and her beloved Noah again. But before she can lift the gun to her head, men in black suits are rushing into her room with bigger guns of their own, telling her that her safety is at risk and she must be taken to a secure location.
Everything Luce thought she knew is questioned; her entire life taking a horrific turn. And when a man with familiar chocolate brown eyes is designated as her bodyguard, she knows that everything is not as it seems.
