“This is going to sound so strange to you, but if there is a guy I’m interested in, then I have to type up a profile of him and submit it to my father,” said Micah. “If he says yes, then I can date him; if he says no, then it’s just no.” Bryce came to a standstill and dropped his arm from her shoulder. “Are you serious? You’re telling me that you basically haven’t been allowed to have a social life? What is up with your dad?” Micah Rawlings would never dream of rebelling against her father’s strict rules and regulations—until she meets her new step-mother, who just happens to be younger than she is. Add some stalkers, extreme makeovers, and forbidden boyfriends, and Micah can’t decide if she’s going crazy or finally finding a little bit of happiness. Phillip Rawlings isn’t ready to lose control of his daughter just yet. Bryce Jorgenson is off-limits, and Phillip will do anything to protect his daughter from him—even if that means revealing a dark and destructive secret. And Bryce’s former girlfriend, Michelle, is only too happy to come home from her mission and pick up where she and Bryce left off. After a little soul-searching, Micah realizes that life isn’t meant to be perfect. Throwing away preconceived ideas and being open to second chances might just be the only way she and Bryce can make it.
