Alisha has not had the most exciting life a person could have. Her mom abuses her and her dad thinks that she's dead. she doesn't go to school and she doesn't know who she really is. until one day when she is wearing her hoodie and is going shopping she bumps into a guy named Carson who says that he's her Mate? Alisha has no idea about what a mate is or the world that she is about to enter that's going to change her life forever. However the thing is she doesn't talk because over the years that she has been abused she locked her heart up so that she would never be hurt by a boy again. But when she gets used to Carson being around and she is falling for him big time she has a decision to make should she keep her heart locked up just because she has a feeling that she's falling into a trap or should she take the risk and talk to Carson and risk everything that she's been doubting her whole life? Love. but as challenges rise above all her decision must be made when she is kidnapped but she is still unsure if Carson is just using her or if he really does love her she won't give up on talking unless she knows for sure if Carson is the key to her locked heart.
