Eighteen year old Raquel had just graduated

high school and already her life was a mess. When her dad offered her what

seemed like the only solution to her problems, she jumped at it. 

His conditions were solid. He’d pay for college,

she’d stay in his condo in San Diego, and he’d get her the professional help

she needed. In return she’d leave behind everything and everyone who ever


That meant zero contact with her best friend

Natalia and, more importantly, No Dante!

Pasts have a way of haunting you, and no matter

how far you run from the problems in life, you can’t outrun yourself.

She soon finds out that even with college, a

job, and new friends, picking up the pieces isn’t as simple as she thought it

Raquel, “Rocky” as her friends call

her, is an introverted girl, on the brink of turning eighteen. Having already

been dealt a bad hand recently, her life gets even more complicated when her

parent’s divorce forces her to relocate with her mom to the city of Rancho

Cucamonga, California. She will be facing her senior year in a new high school.

Fortunately Natalia, her best friend since birth, will be there. It’s the one

thing keeping Rocky from completely going off the deep end.

She plans to stay focused on her future, which

includes trying to join the Peace Corps. Then in walks Dante. He’s cocky, handsome,

well-built, popular and so not her type. She is determined to keep her

distance. The last thing she needs is someone prying into her past. Dante loves

a challenge though, and when his relentless pursuit captures her attention, she

just can’t stop herself from falling for him. They soon realize that things

aren’t always what they seem and find themselves forging an intense bond. But

when life continues to hand them obstacle after obstacle, can their new found

love help save her or will she finally find herself Breaking Down?
