Becky Johns had nothing. The death of her mother from a drug overdose and the arrest of her ‘guardian,’ are just the latest slaps across the face life hands her.

She holds on tight to her hopes and dreams. She knows a better life is out there, but she’s smart, intuitive even, and knows the odds have been stacked against her since the day she was born, and no matter how hard she wishes, fairy tales don’t happen for girls like her. Jase Pearson had everything. With high school almost behind him and his dreams in the palm of his hand, Jase is well on his way to becoming a force to be reckoned with in the world of family law, following in the footsteps of his mother and grandfather before him.
