After being abandoned by her parents at a very young age, Hailey Nix has worked hard to get through school and make something of herself. Her lifetime alone has taught her that it’s better to be self-sufficient and not depend on anyone for anything. When she meets Andrew, she’s shocked at how quickly he slips through all the defenses it’s taken her a lifetime to build.
