A sexy and poignant new adult novel in the vein of Jamie McGuire's Beautiful Disaster from New York Times bestseller Marata Eros, about two lost souls who find each other in the wake of tragedy--only to learn that love may not be enough to heal the wounds of a dark and tortured past... "I don't want my broken fixed. . . ." Six months ago, Brooke Starr was one impeccable piano performance away from Juilliard. Now, she is lonely, devastated, orphaned . . . seeking solace in a place where the sun never sets and trying to make sense of the dark tragedy that clouds her shattered heart. There are no coincidences. . . . Deep-sea fisherman Chance Taylor can't imagine what his life would be if he'd never taken that midnight stroll to the pier. Had never seen the intriguing, raven-haired girl swan dive into the Alaskan sea. Had never plunged into the icy waters to rescue her . . . and finally felt her electric charge. As their blazing chemistry consumes them, Chance is determined to save Brooke from her demons. But Brooke knows she must find her own footing. She thinks she's already lost everything--until the terror of her past catches up with her and threatens all that she has left: her life, her love, and the freedom to choose between drowning in grief and finding joy in the darkness.
