Received from publishers:
No one knows what
happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock
boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with “freaky” scars on her arms.
Even Echo can’t remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she
knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.
when Noah Hutchins, the smokinghot, girl-using loner in the black
leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and
surprising understanding, Echo’s world shifts in ways she could never
have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets
they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.
crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask
herself just how far they can push the limits and what she’ll risk for
the one guy who might teach her how to love again.
I am looking forward to reading this so much! I've heard so many great things about it. Thank you so much Mira Ink!
