About the Book

You can’t change the past… no matter how much you want to.”

If only Allie Collins could go back to that tragic day one year ago, perhaps she could escape the guilt that haunts her. In reality, there was no altering her cousin’s death or the role she played.

Then she meets Damien Michaels, a dark-haired stranger on a dirt bike, who seems to watch Allie and know more about her than he should. Veiling his own secrets, including a mysterious scar and unexplained tattoo, Allie knows she shouldn’t trust him–especially as she digs up a past Damien desperately wants to forget. She also doesn’t believe in summer romances, yet she finds her attraction to him growing beyond his striking grey eyes.

Unfortunately, Allie discovers he is hiding a dark past which is far from over, endangering her life and those she loves.

Violence
5
This book is mainly about gangs and gang violence. There is death, murder, a tiny hint of could-be rape when a few boys attacked Brooke and Allie. There is murder of innocents, a child (Damien's sister), and teenagers.
Language
1
I don't remember any cuss words. I never noticed it before but I don't even know how she managed that in a book about gangs.
Romance/Sensuality
1
There is no more than a few kisses. There were a few hints towards a bit more (right before Damien was going to leave and the gang guys showed up at the cabin), but only hints.
Drugs/Alcohol/Smoking

Supernatural Characters: None.

All of her books can be read as stand-alone contemporary YA fiction, touched with romance, emotional drama and suspense. With a degree in Recreation Therapy from Brigham Young University, Erica’s experiences working with at-risk youth have influenced the realistic and relatable nature of her writing.
