Chloe had plans. Big ones, at that. Her dream of getting into Julliard was
shattered when she was rejected last year. Now, she's at UCLA's music composing
program, where she feels she's on the right track. Chloe is a piano prodigy and
music is her life. And that goal does not include love or anything remotely close
to it. Not even if it comes in the form of her insanely sexy literature TA, Jesse.
Jesse also had plans. He's a grad student in creative writing at UCLA and has
big dreams of becoming a bestselling author. His plan also doesn't involve love
or anything resembling a relationship.
What starts as innocent flirting leads to a serious relationship, one that must
be kept secret if Jesse hopes to stay in his program. It isn't long before they fall
deeply for each other, but not even love can conceal what neither of them are
willing to admit; They both have dark pasts. Now the hard work starts when
they share their secrets. Can their love handle the darkness, or will their pasts
render them better off alone?
