Emma Beckett is helping a student when she feels Alexander Christmas enter Ike’s burger joint.

Emma accepts and is thrust into a world few would be prepared for. The attraction is mutual, but Alex’s life is complicated. Soon, internal and external influences are trying their damnedest to rip them apart.
