"I'm warning you, baby. If you stay any longer, I'll ruin you."
"Can't you tell? I'm already ruined."
Baxton Chase is as bad as they come. Growing up without a mom and an abusive dad, it was evident he would be trouble. Having to fend for himself at a young age, he did whatever it took to get the money he needed to shelter himself. As he grew older, he became well known, and not in a good way. People knew not to mess with him, and nobody wanted to get on his bad side. Everybody was smart enough to stay away from the cold- hearted man.. well, everybody except Avery Davis.
Avery Davis had it as bad as Baxton, maybe even worse. She could be as cold-hearted as him, but she chooses not to. She wanted to prove everybody wrong, that she wasn't a disappointment, so that became her mission. And she had done it, proved everybody wrong, and made something of herself. But of course trouble follows her everywhere she goes. And this trouble just so happens to be... Baxton Chase.
