The characters must overcome more than most Millennials will ever face or they’ll lose their sanity, heart and the city they love to hate, Miami.*
Jimena Quintero is anxious, beautiful and filled with wanderlust. Stuck in a cubicle, trapped in a crumbling marriage, she’s haunted by her childhood and family secrets. That is until she meets Alex Lane, a local Wynwood bar owner.
