Hallie Delos Santos was seventeen years old when she fled the small town of Bluehaven without looking back
Five years later, she returns.
With a past she refuses to talk about, Hallie needs to walk the halls of her old school with her head held high.
She can’t fall, especially when the woodwork teacher takes an interest in her and promises this time no one is chasing her out of town.
Daniel Miller is older, stronger, and obsessed with making Hallie talk. They should be complete opposites, but against all odds, the conversations last hours and the chemistry is undeniable.
Hallie has a secret, but so does Daniel.
He’s the woodwork teacher, and she’s the costume designer.
He’s smiles, and she’s the silence.
He’s determined, and she’s his.
*Fifteen years age gap, a quiet heroine and a small town full of gossip. Dark at times, honest, but mostly hopeful.
