Avery is beautiful, carefree and outspoken, well she used to be. She used to thrive on adrenaline and the only way she could fulfil that need was to race, that was until her world was turned upside down.
With her father deserting them at a young age and her mom constantly high alongside her new husband, Avery and her sister Alena have grown up in a messy and violent environment.
Determined to give her sister a proper upbringing, they run away to a new town and start a new life together, giving up on everything she loved. Afraid of her past coming back to haunt her, she refuses to let anyone into her life. Her only focus is to look after her sister and get through senior year.
That is until she meets Jaxon Asher who comes crashing into her life, popular amongst his peers who is also well known in the racing scene. Avery is convinced he is like every other man who's crossed paths with her. Will he prove her right and confirm that all men are the same; abusive and controlling or will he show her that there is still love left in this world?
P.S: This is not a typical cliche story. I promise you will enjoy it!
