Dear Mom & Dad, I dropped out of school. I'm going backpacking. Sorry. Love you both.
At nineteen, Nina has endured two lifetime's worth of humiliation. Tired of waiting for it to get better, she decides to get going-across the globe to New Zealand. There she soon faces what she most fears: a super sexy guy ready to be Nina's next mistake.
Once Sam's life was all about having fun. That was before the accident. Now his friends have bailed and his world is broken. But when a gorgeous girl on his flight looks at him with passion instead of pity, Sam feels his old self coming back to life.
Now traveling together, Nina and Sam know this isn't just a fling. They're falling fast, hard, and deep. More than anything, Sam wants Nina to forget her fears. But to help her do that he must reveal his own painful secret-and risk Nina never seeing him the same way again.

"With an endearingly awkward female protagonist, a swoon-worthy male love interest, and Siskind's superb storytelling, this is one of the best New Adult contemporary romances I've read to date." - USA Today bestselling author K.A. Tucker
I place my hand on his chest. It looks small and pale on his black top. When I flatten my palm, he closes his eyes. One, two, three heartbeats later, he opens them up and all jokes vanish. The tent swells with unspoken words, hunger etched on his face, darkness in his eyes. I’ve never wanted anything as bad as this. Sam. His mouth on mine. His hands on me. To feel like I belong to him, if only for a minute.
Not knowing why, my hand floats from his chest up to his chin, to the scar embedded under his stubble. I trace the indentation, the way he often does, and our lips part at the same moment, his eyes burning into mine. Fierce. Beautiful. Perfect. Those are the words that describe this man. “God, I wish you were mine,” I say. Like out loud?Those words were supposed to be on mute. Unspoken. A silent prayer.
