Peyton Myers has always been the life of the party.

But behind her smile and sass is a girl lost and alone, searching for her place in the world.

Xander Chase has always been on the outside looking in.

But behind his cool indifference and hard exterior is a guy afraid to open his heart to anyone.

When he saves Peyton from a tragic accident, their lives are entwined forever. But Xander’s not the hero of her story… no matter how much she wants him to be.

She’s a girl with her whole life ahead of her.

He’s a guy who is drifting through life.

And although these two lost souls might be able to heal each other, there’s one glaring problem.

She’s still in high school…

And completely forbidden.

About the Author:

Author of over thirty mature young adult and new adult novels, LA COTTON is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find LA immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

If life was fair Peyton was at a time in her life when she should be focused on friends, dating and school but that is not the case. Filled with guilt and regrets for circumstances that were not only not her fault but beyond her control. She is floundering but determined not to burden those she cares about with what is really going on until Xander comes into her life when she needs someone the most.

Xander is on a downward spiral as he feels more a spectator when it comes to life than a participant. He is mired in pain and feels unworthy but when he sees Peyton at one of the lowest points in her life he senses a kindred soul. They are wrong for each other on so many levels and he knows that the best way to protect her is by staying away but it complicated by the fact that the only time they feel any respite from the demons that haunt them is when they are together.

Peyton and Xander take us on emotional journey as despite the difference between them they find themselves in a similar mindset but seeing them open their hearts and help each other heal from the past was wonderful to see.
