A toxic ex.
A girl who lost herself.
A childhood friend helping her find the way back.
When Hailey finally ends her relationship with her narcissistic ex-boyfriend, she thinks all her troubles have ended. But what she doesn’t realize is that the wounds he inflicted aren’t on her skin, but in the way she sees herself. And the only person capable of helping her heal has been in her corner all her life.
Jax has had a soft spot for the younger Porter sister ever since his family moved into their neighborhood. It feels like the most natural thing in the world to go from helping her with math homework, to holding her hand through a rough breakup years later. But as he starts to show her how beautiful and worthy she already is, he himself starts to notice the incredible woman that she grew up to be.
While Hailey struggles to balance finding her strength with navigating her budding attraction to her older sister's best friend, Jax has to decide if his new feelings for Hailey are helping or hurting her journey.
Can Jax and Hailey start something new while the past is hovering over their heads? Or will Hailey’s scars hurt them both?
