Danica Jordan has been roughing it for years - two, to be exact. Her mother got up one day and never returned. "Dani" is what all of her friends know her by. She is 17 and living the life of an adult. Unlike most 17-year-olds, she pays for her own apartment, purchased her own car, and works a masculine job to make her own money.
Problem is she is living a lie. Her coworkers think that she is a 20-something-year-old independent woman. Her tough exterior helps her handle the roughness of life. The steel plant that she works for is evidence of that. She handles everything perfectly until she meets her boss' son and the new owner of the plant, Lark Brannigan. He takes an interest, unaware of her age. He treats her to the bright side of life. She slowly sheds her tough girl act as Lark sweeps her off of her feet. She falls hard, and soon the truth about her age begins to creep into the forefront.
How will Lark feel when he finds out that he is dating a teenager? And how will her life change when her past is exposed?
