Summary from Goodreads:
Mira did not know what she had in store the day she fell asleep while wanting to escape her
current situation. Overcoming a death from someone so close and burying herself in school and
an internship has kept her somewhat awake and alive. An admiration for the actor, James Dean
was all that kept the memory of her father alive. If she couldn’t be with her father, she could at
least remember what they shared an admiration for together. She always wanted to meet James
Dean… she didn’t know it would come true. Be careful what you wish for. It may just come true.

My life couldn’t be more complete. As we reached the apartments, I slowly got off the bike,
surprised at myself that I had done this. Ordinarily, I’d never get on a motorcycle. James leaned
over and caressed my cheek. Before I could open my mouth to tell him what was to happen to
him, he gave me a quick peck on the lips. I couldn’t let James walk away, not now.
Something in me grasped his wrist; my breath caught in my throat. I no longer cared about
the rain. I must have looked like a drowned rat to him. “I have to tell you something,” I blurted
as I waited for his reaction.
James smiled, then chuckled as he caressed my face. The rain was preventing me from
seeing clearly. “Sweetheart, it’s raining and you’re soaked. I hope this is important.” Pulling
him toward me, I faced him. I could change history. I could have him live out his life as he was
meant to. If I couldn’t save my father, I could save him.
“In the future, when you become famous, please be careful. Remember this: there will be a
day that you are off to a race. You will not see a car until it’s too late. James, please promise me.
It could mean your life.” I must have sounded like a complete and total idiot to him. Geez! I
think I watched Back To The Future too many times. I sounded like Marty talking to the
professor about his impending death.
Chuckling, he shook his head, expelling the rain off his head and onto me. Laughter
erupted between us as I covered my face. He then cupped my face, kissed my forehead. “Are you
sure you’re not an angel? I cannot promise anything, but baby, I can promise I’ll see you
tomorrow. I’ll pick you up here and you can ditch your responsibilities. Ride with me.”
Sighing, now I knew how all those girls felt when they looked at him. What an offer that
would be. Ditch school to ride with the man who was loved by so many. I was determined he’d
listen to me. Gripping his hands from my face, I gazed into his eyes. “I’m serious!”
Before I could utter another word, his lips descended on mine. My body went toward him
and melted. I couldn’t help but respond as I brought him closer. I was lost in his warm lips as
they caressed mine. Lingering near my lips, he breathed, “I know you are.” Then, winking as he Kissed me again, smiling that beautiful smile of his, "How else can my angel guard me if she isn't with me?"
There you have it guys, I really hope you've had as much fun as I have (I've had a truck-load, try to keep up).
You know I love you almost as much as I love me, right?
