Maggie Collins is running away from everything she knows and loves. The only thing she ever wanted was to go to college, open up her own bakery, and marry the man of her dreams. Years later she still struggles with a secret she’s hidden from everyone since she was little.
With her brother, Jeremy, and her boyfriend, Luke, having the time of their lives at Northwestern, she makes the hardest decision of her life–to let them go. Unfortunately, that means giving up her own heart to protect theirs. What she hadn’t planned on doing was working at a strip club to pay bills, or to meet someone new that may be able to make her feel whole again.
Luke Matthews has more than he could ask for. Heʼs attending his favorite University, has the girl he’s always wanted, and lives with his best friends. The one morning when he wakes to find her scribbled note telling him sheʼs leaving, flips his world upside down. Unable to cope, he turns to booze and pills to numb his pain. It isnʼt until almost two years later and losing all hope when he stumbles upon Maggie. And of all places, working in a strip club.
Convincing her to come home with them is the easy part, but finding out the real reason for her leaving could destroy them both.
