Ryder Thompson is your typical bad boy. Well, that's what everyone at school thinks. He rides a motorcycle, where's a leather jacket, and smokes with his friends in the parking lot. Also, he notorious for breaking people's noses. But at home, he's an overprotective older brother, trying to keep him and his siblings sane. Keeping his mother at bay, and worrying about an angry "ex" stepfather. Ryder has enough on his plate as it is, without adding in a girl. Cyra Ray's life, has been, less than satisfying. Her mother's crazy, and her father's dead. See? Unsatisfying. Her mother, who's busy drinking herself into a stupor, and following guys around, bringing a different one home every night, has moved her again. Cyra's learned not to get attached to things, because everything she gets close to, leaves. She doesn't let people get close, and people have stopped trying. With each move, Cyra becomes more distant, and she doesn't look back. Another move. Another school. Another new start. But this new start comes with a twist. Ryder Blake.
