After a phone call changes my life, I shut the world out. Paralyzed by the fear gripping me, the darkness becomes inescapable. When I refuse to open my door, my best friend goes to the most notorious man in town.
Bruno's known to everyone in the neighborhood - he's feared and only spoken about in whispers. Only there's a problem - after he breaks down my door, he doesn't want to leave.
I never expected to find a man with a heart bigger than his reputation. But just like illusions, things are never what they seem. With fear surrounding me, only he can chase away the shadows.
This isn't your typical love story - it's a story of fight and survival. Most importantly, it's about finding the light and basking in the rays.
