Twenty-two year old Faren Mitchell hears the two words that change her abbreviated life forever. They're so final Faren decides she has nothing to lose by seizing every remaining moment of what life has to offer.
Until Faren collides with a motorcycle ridden by billionaire Jared McKenna.
Even the dark secret of her past and catharsis as a physical therapist can't save Faren from the sexual spiral that waits for her in the arms of a man who commits to no one. When circumstances force her to get a second job as an exotic dancer, Faren never imagines how close that choice will bring her to the brink of a new reality she is unequipped to handle.
“They can't save me. No one can. But the one who held my hand when I was laid out in the middle of the street takes it again. I fade, his deep brown eyes in a strong face the last thing I see as the sedative takes me from consciousness like a thief. That undeniable face is the last thing I see. Then it hits me: I don't have to deny myself anything. When you know the hour of your death, it all becomes clear. It's a kind of relief.”
“He punishes me tenderly. Each kiss erases the hurt of his words. There's no way that any man could ever speak an apology as perfect as the one he does with his mouth. But Jared McKenna does- eloquently.”
