If you had the ability to heal with just one touch, the ability to take other’s pain by making it your own, would you do it?
The gratifying feeling she gets from helping others intoxicates Ally. The glowing feeling within constantly simmers, incessant on bursting free. Ally was born to do this, but how much more abuse can her body take?
Theo finds himself getting close to the girl that continues to inflict pain on herself. When he discovers her secret, his overwhelming concern drives him to do everything in his power to prevent Ally from getting hurt, no matter how good her intentions are.
Theo also has secrets and will take any measure to keep them hidden from the girl he is falling in love with. He knows better than to let her get too close. She can never find out the information he conceals because she cannot help him anyway.
Devastating circumstances, helpless love…where there's a will, is there really a way?

My eyes rest on Ally again and I pass her a menu. “Are you a coffee or tea kind of girl?” She peruses the menu while chewing on her bottom lip. I fixate on the motion, thinking I would like to drink her instead.
“A sweet tooth kind of girl. A hot chocolate with marshmallows and cake kind of girl.” My mind constantly conjures more sinister thoughts around this ravishing beauty and before I can stop myself, the words just seem to fall out of my mouth. “I can be really sweet.” Then I wink. I actually f**king wink. Why does she inspire such corny thoughts to escape my brain and leave via my big stupid mouth?
“I’ll just go place our order; be right back.” I dash off towards the counter before I can see her reaction to my verbal diarrhea. In the queue, I give myself a pep talk. Be smooth Theo; be smooth. By the time I place our order, I feel as if I have my act together and head back to the table.
When I return, Ally places her hands on top of mine on the table and relieves the tension in the air by getting rid of the elephant in the room. “That was really SWEET of you to take care of our orders.” She emphasizes the word ‘sweet’ and winks back at me. Wow, that was seriously hot!
I feel instantly relieved that she isn’t offended and a little turned by her cheeky retort. I grin and shrug my shoulders as if to say ‘hey, can you blame me? You are smoking hot and I’m unable to think clearly when you’re around.’
