When I was 11, my best friend died in a car accident. When I was 12, my mom walked out, leaving only a note to say goodbye. When I was 18, I was forced into witness protection.
My new name is Shyanne Adams. To protect myself, and my painless existence, I do not live. I do not laugh. I do not love. For the last three years, the only meaningful thing I've done is care for the horse I rescued.
But now, at the age of 21, the one person from both my past and present is pushing me to start living. Before I know it, I'm moving in with new friends who make me laugh. And next door is Kade Cross, the guy who wants me to love.
Kade knows that I will complicate his life, but he welcomes the challenge. He sees that I'm broken, but he doesn't try to fix me. When he knows I'm trying to push him away, he braces for the impact.
What Kade doesn't know is that I could have to relocate at any time. So I have to decide: is experiencing love for a short time worth the pain of losing it?
This adult romance is an emotional journey through pain and healing as Shyanne decides to start living again, but she never forgets that she could lose this life...just like her last one.
