The "must-read romance" featured in USA TODAY and awarded a "Staff Pick" by Goodreads. Eighteen-year-old Declan Jane is just trying to make it through senior year in San Mar, the Northern California coastal town she's lived in all her life. Perpetually under the radar, she's surprised by the pull she feels to a mysterious and attractive new student, Alexander Ronin. Despite all the girls vying for his attention, Declan is the one he's drawn to, and she finds herself returning his interest. As the intensity of their attraction builds, and she discovers the truth behind his appearance in San Mar, he reveals the danger she's in and why their relationship holds deadly consequences. But as Declan overcomes her fears and fights for her life, the connection between the two lovers may be the only thing that can save them both.
Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, this story will stay with readers long after the last page turned.
