Could this be the record for the worst name to give a child, Ayma Kuntz. Welcome to Ayma’s world and the other Bayshore students as they contend with the drama, romance, and heat that fills their days. Broken – Book One of the Assumption Series centers on Ayma and Colton. It follows them through the first half of their senior year in high school. A year when life should be exciting, fun and happy…but sadly, it isn’t always like that.
Ayma comes from wealthy divorced parents. Her mother has made her life a living hell from the time she was born and named. Her life has been planned and designed to make her a replica of her mother; a socialite living on Bay Shore. Ayma is trying to break that mold. She wants to be nothing like her mother, but really doesn’t know who or what she wants to be. She has her limited friends, but lots of nemeses, low on the social ladder, and a name that will haunt her forever.
Then along comes Colton, He’s who every girl wants or every guy wants to be like. Colton is the opposite of Ayma, he’s not rich, has a supportive family, tons of people who want to be his friend, but Colton feels he is damaged at best. He has a past, one that includes time in jail.
Ayma and Colton seem to balance each other out, they aren’t supposed to be together, they are complete opposites, yet the attraction is one they can’t fight for long… Will his past catch up and tear them apart or will they be able to pull through all the obstacles created to break them apart?
Broken is how both of them feel. Can they help each other fix the damaged pieces of their lives or will unforeseen circumstances keep their lives forever shattered?
