An uplifting, own voices romance: After Paige moves in with her best friend, there's instant chemistry with her roommate’s brother, Brody. No one makes her feel as safe as he does, but she fears revealing secrets about her life and circumstances. As their connection deepens, can she express how she feels? Or will the truth push him away?
Paige yearns for one thing: release. Connection. But physical barriers make that wish seem impossible. Thanks to a shattered home life, she also doesn't know how to trust. Especially those she loves.
When Paige moves in with her best friend desperate for a new life, she isn't expecting a spark with her roommate's brother, Brody. He's gigantic, protective, and makes her feel something she hasn't felt in a long time: safe. Can she trust him to stay when he learns her secrets?
Brody wants to keep his relationship with Paige platonic, but he can't get the troubled woman out of his mind. There's something about her. Maybe it's her sense of humor. Maybe it's her resilience. Or maybe it's the way she makes him question his entire stance on relationships. But his sister, Amber, warns him to stay away. He needs to listen. For everyone's sake.
As Paige struggles to navigate her tumultuous feelings, words fail her. How can she understand her heart when her past left her damaged?
And what if revealing the truth means losing Brody forever?
