Morgan Young had a perfect upbringing, and now she’s got a perfect boyfriend and a perfect future—until her twenty-first birthday changes everything. First Morgan finds out, in the most painful way possible, that her relationship is a sham. But that’s nothing compared to the nightmare about to unfold.
It’s too late for Tucker Noscalo. A brutal childhood left him with a bad reputation and a criminal record. Fresh out of jail, Tucker has a score to settle with Baybrook’s crooked chief of police—his own father. Nobody will believe Tucker’s explosive accusations without proof and a good lawyer, neither of which he has on his side. Until he sees someone he used to know, someone who just so happens to be the daughter of the best lawyer in the county.
He needs Morgan to convince her father of the ugly truth. But first he has to convince her, and he’ll do whatever it takes to get her to listen. Confronted by the story of Tucker’s dark past, Morgan feels utterly compelled to help him. And as their connection grows into a fierce bond fueled by raw passion, Morgan finds herself falling for the wrong guy—but never has the promise of love felt so right.

Desperate, broken and tainted with all kinds of paintbrushes, Tucker Noscalo’s only way out is to abduct the young woman whose father is a prominent lawyer, in the hopes that he’ll get pro-bono representation. But first, he’ll need Morgan Young on his side, and a lot of healing and help before he’s anything near normal. This has to be one of the hardest books I’ve read that deals with sexual abuse and its consequences. Horrifying and written for a reader’s empathy, it is impossible not to want that raging justice for Tucker, even if the road to normalcy is paved with thorns.
