Arosemena Cruz is the picture of perfection. Poised, graceful, and never a hair out of place. With a 4.0 GPA, and years of formal training, she's a shoe in for Julliard. There's only one problem: Prima Ballerina isn't something she's in a hurry to add to her list of accolades. With her mother pulling the strings, something she once loved has become nothing more than a chore. One she's more than ready to throw in the towel with. Between an overbearing mother, her good girl persona, and an uncaring family, Mena feels trapped in a world she wants no part of.
But a fated meeting may change all that...
Phoenix Yarbrough does little more than exist these days. After witnessing a tragedy at a young age he's left cold and empty, devoid of anything resembling life. With the ghosts of his past haunting him, Phoenix sets out to correct an injustice. Only this time around, he bypasses a system that failed him and takes matters into his own hands. He has only one goal in mind: find the man who murdered his mother.
Fed up with being what's expected of her, Mena seeks excitement and Phoenix is just the right amount of danger to rid her of her innocence.
Mena provides a beacon of light at the end of Phoenix's tunnel. With her in his life things don't seem so bleak and for the first time in years he dares to hope.
But when two damaged souls collide, tragedy can't be too far behind.
