From the moment she first learned to read, literary genius Darcy Wells has spent most of her time living in the worlds of her books.

While Darcy is struggling to survive beneath the weight of her mother’s compulsive shopping, Asher Fleet, a former teen pilot with an unexpectedly shattered future, walks into the bookstore where she works…and straight into her heart.
