But then, as her world falls apart, he surprisingly offers a helping hand, and Emma has no choice but to accept. As they grow closer, and the lines between an innocent affection and other, not so innocent feelings, blur, Emma is pushed into increasingly deeper dependency, and what has started as friendship soon evolves into something much more intense and devastating. An age gap romance about the quest for freedom, atonement, and love. $2.99 on Kindle.
