Synopsis: Falling in love isn't always easy or pleasant. The intense and angst-filled

story of Emma and Scott is a painful, gut-wrenching and exhausting portrayal of

how hard it can be to let go...

Nineteen year-old Emma Harrington’s number one rule is; Never give your heart away to a man, no matter what. That lesson was learned early on in her life and she will never forget it.

Starting over in the USA, Emma starts college with her cousin, Ashley. She is finally free to do and live how she wants and no man will ever rule her decisions or emotions again.

That is until Scott Mason walks on stage…

Intense, bad boy Scott is the lead singer in a local and popular rock band. Ladies man and Ashley’s longtime friend, Emma is instantly drawn to him, even though he is everything she hates and needs to stay away from in a guy. He treats females like he does a cigarette; light it, use it, and lose it.

For her cousin’s sake, she makes an effort to get along with Scott. She soon discovers that there is more to Scott which makes him even more dangerous in her eyes. Underneath the fa├žade of friendship; jealousy, obsession, fear and insecurities, fester and battle it out as she fights her attraction and history from repeating itself.

One thing she knows for sure is that if she breaks her rule, it may destroy her.


Ash and I arrived at Macy’s and went straight to our usual table. Newton and meg had been waiting for us. As friends of Scott’s, we would always have this table to ourselves. When Scott came on stage there was the usual buzz. Girls screamed his name as they rushed to the front in a frenzied battle to be the one who caught his attention first. He stood there, much like he had on his first night, silhouetted against the spotlight. He was silent. Still. A hush came over the audience while they waited for him to start.

When he did, my heart leaped into my throat — he looked directly at me with a sexy smile and a wink. Eyes turned towards me, girls watched me with unveiled envy. His gaze trapped mine and I suddenly felt as though we were the
only two people in the room. It was like he was a different person on stage. As though he felt braver, like anything could and would happen.

I looked away but only because the stares I was getting were making me uneasy. I sneaked a peek back at Scott but he was still watching me as he sang his ballad. I glowered at him, shaking my head, and I knew he’d got the message as he grinned and looked away. I finished my drink and got up to dance. I stayed towards the back and started swaying, moving with the music, letting it guide my body.

Scott’s eyes touched me every now and then but I didn’t mind. Every time Scott was on stage it was like falling under his spell all over again, and I loved and hated that feeling all at once. When he finished the set he came over to me
and planted a kiss on my cheek. This was a new thing with him — he kissed me now, but it was always in a friendly way.
