Man Of Few Emotions
Jared Winston has spent much of his adult life in the public eye as the lead guitarist for the hugely popular rock band Black Friday. Presented with temptations from every side and dealing with the mess that was his childhood, he's been known to indulge in excess.
One such excess almost killed him when he overdosed on Halloween.
The experience left him wanting to turn his life around, and it left everyone else in his life struggling, trying to balance the dual emotions of fear and anger.
One person, in particular, isn't sure at all what she wants to do.

Giver Of Love Not Returned
Michelle Sanders has made her living as the assistant to the country music star Harmony Stewart. As a personal assistant, she thrives under structure and is always the one to fight for what her friend deserves.
When she met Jared, she took a chance on imperfection – she knew his history – and was warned. That is a chance she's not sure will ever pay off.
Her perfect structure was blown to hell on the night Jared OD'd, and now she has to decide if she wants to risk her heart again.
Love is a game. It's a chance taken; a roll of the dice. Shell gambles, but never in her wildest imagination did she think that the person who loves her would make it so hard for her to love him back.
