Ariana has never had a boyfriend. After meeting Carlos at a quinceanera party, she wants one. But her parents simply won’t allow it.
Ariana must convince her brother not to say anything when she starts seeing Carlos behind their parents’ back.
Ariana never would have guessed that having a boyfriend would come at such a huge price, though. Because Carlos is still hurting from his past.
She doesn’t know how long she can keep up the lie to her parents.
And she never realized how much her heart might have to pay if this relationship isn’t something Carlos is ready for.
When Carlos starts showing her just how damaged he is, Ariana isn’t sure she’s ready for this either.
