After being homeless for three years, nineteen-year-old Rafael Ortiz takes up his sister’s offer to live with her in Atlanta and Akilah, his new hot mouthed classmate with an answer to everything, inserts herself into his life despite his protests.
He’s suspicious of her first. No one has ever cared about him unless he could give them something in return. Then terrified. He may be seven-hundred miles away from Miami, but it’ll never be far enough from the stepdad that raped him and left him with two ways out as a kid. Running or killing himself. Some days, Rafael still thinks it might be easier to do the latter. For her own sake, he should keep Akilah at a distance.
Rafael falls for her anyway.
Then his stepdad shows up in Atlanta and the man still wants to have sex with him and sabotage everything good Rafael has going for him.
He could run again—but that would mean breaking Akilah’s heart and leaving his future with her behind. Killing himself still means more or less the same thing. But at least then Akilah could move on with her life.
His last option—one he never considered—is to reveal what his stepdad did to him. Otherwise his stepdad will sabotage his relationship with Akilah and the future Rafael thought was just in his grasp. He might just kill himself anyway if that happens.
