Lacey is used to getting everything her way, but every since her brother's death, things haven't gone the way she wanted them to. Feeling left out and ignored at home, she turns her attention to Luis Moreno. But Luis is her best friend's boyfriend. But bored little Lacey thinks she'll play a game. She wants Luis now, and she doesn't care if she hurts Mallory trying to get him.
Luis is a bit blindsided by Lacey's new behavior and isn't quite sure how to handle it. His good friend is turning into a mean girl right before his eyes - but his past crush on her isn't letting him look away. A twisted little triangle is being formed, but that isn't all Mallory will have to deal with.
Crosswinds sets another relationship foundation and we get a deeper look into some of the characters we've met in the past. Things are starting to be all knotted together in a very twisted way.
