Synopsis: She’s driven to save her life. He’s haunted by breaking one. Some secrets are risky to share. But nothing’s more powerful than falling in love…
Nineteen-year-old Sophie has the kind of hope that makes her do weird things–like leave her family and friends behind in her small hometown and travel thousands of miles to a strange city–Los Angeles.
She didn’t plan on getting into the middle of a bar fight on the USCLA campus her first night in town. She didn’t want to be rescued by twenty-one-year- old Alejandro, the hottest guy she’s ever met. She has no time to fall for a guy because her stakes are high–life and death.
Sophie’s starting a promising, experimental USCLA Medical study that could heal her debilitating disease. But California’s filled with all kinds of alternative healers offering medical miracles. When she ventures on her own to find them, she quickly discovers that L.A.’s a tough city, with bad guys more than happy to take advantage of her.
She hires Alejandro to be her driver and her bodyguard. Their journeys take them to sunny beaches, dicey ghettos, campus hang- outs, gang-infested hoods and celebrity parties. And she learns that healing doesn’t always come the way you think you need it.
Sophie’s healing is six-foot-two-inches tall, has stunning hazel eyes, black, shiny hair and a rock solid chest that shelters her. Her healing is a smart, gorgeous Alpha Boy with a killer sense of humor–Alejandro.
As they fall in love, she realizes Alejandro isn’t your typical college party boy–he has a dangerous past. And Sophie isn’t the only one who keeps secrets.
A Story of Hope. A Story of Love. A Story of Redemption

Review: I gave this book 5 Stars out of 5 because I loved the fact that the Story was based around Sophie a young woman ( and her Nanna) from the Midwest of America with MS who travels to LA to research Healing Techniques that will help with MS as well as to take part in a stem Cell research project at USCLA but meets and falls in love with a Local boy.
Sophie was a really good character because to begin with she was a girl who was closed off to loving anyone, as she’s scared of loosing people, and absolutely focused on finding something that will cure her Nanna’s (and her) MS but gradually she opens her heart up to Alejandro, as well as the Kitten that she adopts, ultimately falling in love with both of them.
Alejandro was a lovely character who you couldn’t help but fall in love with. To begin with he was a very closed off angry young man who thought he was a monster due to an accident that he had been involved in several years before in which one of his friends was killed but through the book as he falls in love with Sophie he begins to heal himself as he opens up to Sophie about what happened. Throughout the book he’s a strong and supportive person when it comes to Sophie and all his friends.
