Matt Dalton's world is spinning off its axis. Without warning, he is thrown into the world of parenting a teenager. Matt meets his son for the first time when the sixteen-year-old is dealing with the consequences of a tragic car accident. Not only has Brady lost his best friend, he faces disability and scars both physical and emotional. Determined to do whatever it takes to give his son a second chance, Matt looks to his alma mater to step up and help Brady regain his athletic abilities and sense of self. But sparks fly when he meets the high school principal, the captivating Kate Austen. Kate is ready to take Brady under her wing, but to her that means helping him refocus and find a new passion, using his brains rather than his brawn. Kate fully expects the younger Dalton to come with issues and challenges. His father may prove to be the biggest one of all. Though the chemistry is hard to ignore, Kate fights to keep her personal feelings and professional life separate. At the same time, Matt struggles to gain his son's trust, and Brady must face the road to recovery and find a way to accept the changes in his life.

"Ms. Deluca did a fantastic job in pulling me into the emotions of the characters. I felt the emotional struggles of Matt learning to be a dad. I felt the pain and fear of Brady as he struggled with the emotional and physical scars of his accident. I swear my heart was pounding on his first day of school. For Kate, I instantly connected with her passion and commitment to her job. and, I teared up while reading the scene at the cemetery. I fell in love with these characters."
