THIS IS A NEW ADULT NOVEL. RECOMMENDED FOR 17+ YEARS DUE TO SEXUAL CONTENT AND SOCIAL SITUATIONS
When you see someone who looks like they need saving, you save them right?
Mackenzie Deeks is struggling. Outwardly she plays the tough guy and acts like being a young adult with an eating disorder is no big deal. Inside, she's crumbling.
Ever since her parents’ divorce, the only way she has been able to feel in control of her life is by purging the despair that has its grips on her and won't let go.
Tyler Redding knows when someone needs help - he's seen it before. This time, though, he's not going to take no for an answer. From the moment he first sets his sights on Mackenzie, he's unable to think of anyone else. But how can he focus on a football career when all he wants to do is date the most unassuming person he's ever met?
As their lives become intricately entwined, it becomes more than wishful thinking when Mackenzie and Tyler find each other again as adults. With successful careers, a beachside lifestyle and each other’s love to contend with, life should be pretty damn good. But just when they think they’ve found their wonderful kind of normal, their perfect world comes crashing down.
It’s going to take a lot to keep Mackenzie from succumbing to old habits, but Tyler thinks he might just be the one to save her for good.

Tyler & Mackenzie start off in high school which for Mackenzie is a bit rough. Not only is she covering up her eating disorder but she has to deal with all the crap that comes with being a teenager. Tyler takes his sweet time getting close with Mackenzie, almost painfully slow. When they finally have their first date it gets hot and heavy then blows up that fast. I saw the blow up coming and so did Tyler, he just didn't do much to prevent it if you ask me. Tyler & Mackenzie are able to patch things up but it's not the ideal situation. When they finally get things truly on the right track there are outside sources that threaten their relationship at every turn. Then the tragedy that no one saw coming happens and could just be the thing that tears these two apart. Some hot steamy sex -nothing to detailed or raunchy.
