When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into sophomore year. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she’s single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, and failing a class for the first time in her life.
Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex’s frat brother. Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that night – but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to be the perfect rebound.
When her attacker turns stalker, Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in defeat or learn to fight back. Lucas remains protective, but he’s hiding secrets of his own. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.
Jacqueline made the decision – she followed her boyfriend to college instead of attending her beloved music conservatory. Now, that boyfriend has shattered her heart and left her all alone at a school she didn’t want to go to – she’s trying to piece back together her once uncomplicated life. But everything can change in an instant – at a college party – the snap of a finger all her safety and security is challenged.
Lucas is in his senior year and unbeknownst to Jacqueline has been observing her from a far for quite some time. When these two collide in a devastating way …. living her worst nightmare, and Lucas reliving his troubled past – they come together, treading through all the past to hopefully build a future ….. together….
But Lucas doesn’t want to be Jacqueline’s bad boy rebound – and he’s afraid of what their circumstances could mean for their relationship – It’s a beautiful story about two people that grow through so much – Jacqueline finding herself after losing a boy she thought she loved and falling into something far more deep – and real. Lucas is letting go of his past and the pain it’s caused him for so many years.
