Marguerite is on holiday in London, finally free after 27 years of feeling like a hostage to her strict and overbearing parents. Also in London, and struggling with his thoughts of freedom, is Chase Martin?one-fourth of the most successful band on the planet?who knows that freedom can only come at the expense of his band-mates.
They come from completely different worlds, but when those worlds collide?on a rainy night in a small coffee shop?nothing will ever be the same again. Before ever laying eyes on him, his pain and anxiety somehow reach her, and she feels moved to alleviate it… to offer comfort, which he desperately needs. After years of performing with his band-mates, they are closer than brothers. They are a part of one another, and the compulsion he is feeling to separate from them is tearing him apart.
The strange bond Marguerite and Chase discover goes beyond attraction or desire. It goes beyond love or lust or anything either of them has ever experienced. It is absolutely terrifying, but to walk away from its pull would be like choosing not to breathe.
This is a story of love, loss, and heartbreak… of family and friendship. This is their story…
