Back then we were too young to know that some dreams are impossible... So we dreamed them anyway, and it made those years feel glorious.
Here's a quick plot overview:
However, it is her talent for translation that brings her into contact with Alexander Banebridge, or "Bane," a man who equally attracts and aggravates her. When Bane hires Lydia to translate a seemingly innocuous collection of European documents, she hesitantly agrees, only to discover she is in over her head.
Just as Bane's charm begins to win her over, Lydia learns he is driven by a secret campaign against some of the most dangerous criminals on the East Coast, compelled by his faith and his past. Bane forbids any involvement on Lydia's part, but when the criminals gain the upper hand, it is Lydia on whom he must depend."

16+ (for drugs, intense scenes, and romance)
7- deals with drugs and detailed descriptions of withdrawals. I personally did not find it disturbing, but others may.
6-for romance. Nothing explicit (unless you consider kissing -which there is fair amount of- explicit), however the plot is centered around the two main characters falling in love.
10-displays main character coming to faith and being converted, so it's perfectly fine in this area.
Hope you have a chance to try it out! Happy reading!
