Summary:

In the deadbeat town of Detroit, Michigan, Mae Valentine is one of those girls that everyone knows from the rumors. Only a fraction of her high school actually know Mae personally. She parties, she gets around, and yet happens to be one of the most welcoming people in Michigan, along with her best friend Michael Clifford, whom can typically be seen by Mae's side.

Her life is constantly changing, most recently, getting over her messy breakup with her long-time boyfriend. But another change named Ashton Irwin stumbles into her life. He's dangerously different, and she doesn't know what to do about it.


“You’re, uhm… you’re ready for her?”

“What?” Frowning in his direction, he shakes his head with a look of disgust. “What the fuck are you talking about? Am I ready? Yes. I have had to sit back for months and watch as this poor creature rots from the inside and there’s nothing I can do. I know what I’m getting myself into but I know what it’s like. I understand her, Harry. And she needs someone who actually understand what she’s going through. I need someone who understands. We’re fucked up people, Harry, we fit together perfectly.”
