"He was... he was something else. I wouldn't really know how to explain John. Nor what he meant to me. It was like drowning yet it was like having the big breath after being underwater for so long. It was like finding yourself and losing yourself all at once. It was intoxicating yet it was like the air I needed. Sometimes I wished he never happened, yet I don't know what I would be without him. He was my angel in disguise. And my love for him...it's like this roaring fire devouring the forest, consuming me in flames" - - 20 year old Lacely Garcias' life was anything but perfect, but to her, her messy life was something normal. Well before her mother got diagnosed with cancer. Before she had to work two jobs and before she was failing her classes. So what happens when John Novako, a man she doesn't know proposes money-money she needs- in exchange for her to pretend to be his wife? Lacely is thrown into a life she's never known and struggles to hold on. Truths are told, things are unraveled, drama is being scattered, people start finding themselves, sorrow unleashes, and in the midst of all of this, love is developed. A love that tried to be tamed, but the flames, sadly, couldn't. A/N: THIS BOOK HAS NOT BEEN EDITED.
