Eighteen-year old shy Alana has never been kissed by a guy, or been in a relationship of any sort. When the popular and cheery Gino starts to show interest in her, she waves it off as it being his character. But after eighteen years of practically no experience in the romance department of life, Alana finally starts getting what she's hoped for. And yet, she still asks herself the questions, "What is love? Is it truly worth it?" just as she had when she was single. Note: There will be sensuality and sexual material as the story progresses (from chapter fourteen). Note 2: This is a feel-good romance story, not the typical dramatic high school story filled with angst. Disclaimer: The names of shops, companies and other locations are purely made up for story purposes and not related to any shops with similar (or same) names in any way and, if so, are purely coincidental. *Cover courtesy of omg_poptarts!
