Alex Parker is celebrating his eighteenth birthday by getting drunk with his best friend--and studiously avoiding the debutantes his father tries to throw Alex's way. His night of revelry is cut short when he finds himself a houseguest of a rather unconventional abductor.
Even though he's angry and scared, Alex is drawn to Luke, whose plan falls apart when his attraction to Alex generates a change of heart. Luke can't do anything else but turn himself in to the police, much to Alex's dismay. Alex doesn't want to lose his chance at something great before it even begins.
