"You don't understand. I know a lot of bad people, Dani. People that will try to hurt me by hurting the people I care about if I do anything wrong." He says looking down at his feet. I bring my finger to his chin to make him look me in the eyes.
"I'm not afraid." I state. Staring into his ice blue orbs.
19-year-old Daniella Tyler is looking for a new beginning. After her mother develops severe agoraphobia when Dani's father dies she becomes her mother's full time caregiver. Dani spends the next 3 years slowly beginning to resent her mother but when Dani's mother finally accepts help she takes this as an opportunity to start over. She enrolls into a university just a couple hours from her home of Hyde Park, New York.
There, under unlikely circumstances, she meets Nova Ryder.
Someone who has to work ten times harder to get by for not only himself but his younger sister, Stella. And as Dani slowly enters Nova's world she starts to see how far Nova has to go to keep his head above water for the both of them.
As she gets more involved with Nova's life, learning more of his past, she begins to wonder if she's gotten herself into something much bigger than herself.
