Emma Grey is a ninteen year old dancer with a promising future. She doesn't believe in love and fairytale endings, thanks to her father who abandoned Emma and her mother six years ago. But when Tristan King walks through the doors of the diner where she works for the summer, she begins to question her resolve. And when her father returns from out of the blue, asking for forgiveness, he finally reveals the truth of his past selfish actions. Now, Emma must decide between love and her own pride.
Emma stopped in the doorway. She couldn’t go in there. She wasn’t supposed to see him again. No matter what she did during the past few weeks, she couldn’t forget him; his eyes were seared into her mind. She told herself she didn’t have to worry about being hurt because he was only passing through her life.
But she wasn’t at all comforted by that thought. She couldn’t shake the emptiness she felt, knowing she’d never see him again. Instead, the thought intensified her loneliness, an ache she felt in her heart. A need for something she couldn’t define made her panic, made it hard for her to find air to breath.
And now he was here.
