It’s the perfect escape. Until things get real…
Mia Strong is beyond stressed out. With pre-med courses, the looming qualifying exam, a job, and her mother’s serious health problems, she’s feeling the pressure from all sides. As a distraction, she turns to online gaming and her newest addiction, Dragon Epoch. Mia seeks an escape into fantasy–never dreaming that she’d find something real.
He goes by FallenOne. He’s smart, funny, and has a sexy voice. Their instant connection is the best thing that’s happened to Mia in a long time. He listens for hours while she bares her innermost fears. But he holds everything back about himself. At first, the mystery intrigues her, until she faces a life-altering decision. Now, Mia needs someone she can trust.
Will FallenOne’s friendship turn into something real? Or will the fantasy disappear, leaving her alone and in turmoil?
