Book 1 in the seasons of love series.
Gabriella Waterford has known no love. All her life, she was told she had killed her own mother during childbirth and that alone would ruin someone. Gabriella's strong. Stronger than she realized. 19 years of hell from her devilish aunt led her to believe she was worth nothing. Then college came. A full ride, a small savings account, a very small apartment and a new and improved Gabriella Waterford, one who's finally rid of her past life.
Caden Black has known no love from a woman. His mother never loved him, then again how would he know? She was mostly injecting herself with heroin whenever he saw her. He thought of women as shiny toys you play with until you get bored, then you throw it away and forget about it. It's been a good love-less 20 years until a sweet nerd who's landed herself a sweet spot in Caden Black's world, where few are welcome.
