This is a story about a 15 year old girl.
Jessie, diagnosed with Schizoid personality disorder.
She closes herself off from the real world. Ever since her mother left her and her dad for another family.
Choosing fiction over whatever it is that is happening around her.
She is afraid of being seen.
She just wants to stay in her dark room.
With the solitude she only knows.
Until her father decides to bring her right back into a good education right in her own fortress.
In comes Mr. Lennon O’Connor. He’s just like every man she encounters in the books she reads; utterly handsome, piercing blue eyes, funny as hell, and someone who totally gets her.
The problem is... actually, the problems ARE; he’s thirty-three and married to a devil who doesn't give two-shits to their marriage anymore, and who obviously has a cheating background.
Jessie doesn’t even know why Mr. Connor stays in that marriage. It’s clear his wife doesn’t even have time with him. Nor does it seem that she even loves him.
So she chooses to hide in her own little shell, not knowing that Mr. O’Connor might also reciprocate her feelings.
Soon the attraction caves in on them. They give in to a relationship that's bound to tear them into pieces.
How could this growing forbidden romance keep blooming in the midst of all the chaos their love for each other causes? And would Jessie finally let people in, especially if it’s the enigmatic and married homeschool teacher that she has right by her side?
