It isn't romantic.
It may not even be classified as a friendship.
Casper's been saving Farrah from herself for longer than he'd care to admit, watching silently as she drowned herself in alcohol and bad decisions. Then when she finally got her act together, he left. He told himself he was giving her time to sort herself out. He tried to give her space.
But getting shot in the chest can change a man's perspective, and Casper's done waiting.
When he shows up on her doorstep one night, everything changes.
He's the man who's seen her at her very worst.
She's his weakness.
He runs when things get hard.
She never lets anyone see below the surface and is terrified of being abandoned.
Casper knows it's a long shot, that there's a good chance she'll never drop her guard for him- but he has to try. Because a life with Farrah is exactly what he wants...
Even if he has to fight her for it.
