Unable to continue living on the path her father created for her, Gigi Moretti does something she’s never done before.
She takes a risk.
When musician Maxwell Mitchell waltzes into an old diner in the early morning up to his elbows in secrets, he offers Gigi the perfect escape from the future she’s never wanted.
It takes an over the top demand from her father and a shocking revelation from her fake fiancé to get her to pack her bags and ride shotgun on Max’s spontaneous tour across the country.
As she and Max grow closer, Gigi learns what it’s like to throw out her overbearing workload and be an actual 21-year-old. She quits her job, eats too many Cheetos, tosses out her pink wardrobe, and takes a job as Max’s manager.
She’s finally free, living her life free of her dad’s grip and falling in deep with the musician whose songs hold stories no one will ever uncover and whose past includes a secret hero named Aiden he credits for his survival.
The more time they spend together, the deeper they fall and the closer she gets to the truth. Despite the unknown, she’s happy. She has a job she enjoys, she’s making plans for a future she’s actually excited about, and she’s living with a boyfriend who adores her.
Everything is perfect.
And then she meets Aiden.
And it all changes.
They say fear is temporary. That you only feel fear until you do what it is you’re afraid of. After that, the fear is gone and you’re met with disappointment when it didn’t pan out the way you expected or delirium when it was everything you’d hoped for.
I’m not sure if we should discredit the power fear has by shoving it into a category with a bunch of other things people tend to write off. Fear may not be permanent, but it can last close to a lifetime. Or what feels like a lifetime anyway. Most fear doesn’t go away with a few hours or a good night sleep. Most fear won’t go away with time. When it comes to fear, there are two choices: fight it or avoid it.
I chose the second option for a long time. It’s easier to pretend it isn’t there. It was easy to pretend I wasn’t catching feelings for Gia, and it was easy to pretend I wasn’t afraid of what will happen to us if she rejects me or can’t handle the secrets that come as a package deal of being with me. I avoided it for so long, it started to consume me. There was nothing else in my brain to use as a distraction. It was all I could think about.
For the last eight days, I’d been stirring with myself on the right moment to go for it. To fight. To walk myself out on a ledge and jump, knowing with a good portion of my being that Gia would use every ounce of her strength to catch me. Even so, I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t take the first step. Just getting to the ledge is a journey on its own. Deciding you’re going to jump is enough of a struggle, let alone lifting your foot off the ground and forcing it forward.
I needed a push. I needed someone to shove me halfway so I could feel how good it felt being close to the edge. So I could feel the fear and the doubt, mixing with excitement and joy and know that it’s real.
Renzo was my push. He all but lifted me off my feet and carried me to the ledge. He gave me the jumpstart I was looking for. The reassurance I needed. He was the voice that told me taking risks had a big payout. He pushed me towards the ledge. Now, all I needed was to jump.
It took me eight days and a song filled with a blend of honesty, heart, and love to get me to throw myself off the ledge and start falling to the bottom.
I’m still falling.
