Mandy Dalton has never thought of herself as anything but ordinary, less than ordinary in fact…the girl that makes everyone laugh and the girl guys don’t give a second glance. Born and raised in Carver, Kansas, she’s convinced she’ll die there, never having done anything extraordinary with her ordinary life. Brandon Seaver couldn’t wait to high tail it out of Carver the moment he graduated. The army was his way out, but two tours in Afghanistan and a horrific attack changed his life and he returns to Carver wounded and broken, suffering scars no one can see. He’d never let anyone know that though…until he finds Mandy there, just like she’s always been. Mandy is determined to help Brandon fight his demons until she is faced with her own struggles when her life takes a turn she never could’ve imagined and it’s Brandon’s turn to be the strength Mandy doesn’t have.
