Hayden has always loved Madi--he just hasn't found the perfect way to express it yet. And when you're Hayden Berger, son of an actress and an orator, esteemed thespian and perpetual student at New York's Ballard College of The Arts, the most prestigious art school east of the Mississippi... Perfection isn't just expected. It's everything. Hayden gets his chance with the arrival of Chris, an eager-to-please freshman. When both Madi and Chris express interest in each other to Hayden, he sees his chance to convey all his own feelings for Madi, and also ensure that she is in a safe and caring relationship, using the dashing young Chris as a better-looking substitute. The only obstacle to Hayden's plan would be Matt. Rich, vain, and obnoxious, Matt wants all the prestige Hayden has--from his leadership of the elite drama club founded by Hayden, to Madi herself--and he would stop at nothing to get any of it, even if it comes to cheating, lying, or finding some way to separate Madi from Hayden forever. Will Matt succeed before Hayden can get Chris and Madi to fall in love? Will Hayden be able to pull off the ruse before it's time to graduate? Edmund Rostand's classic tragedy gets updated to a contemporary college romance full of friendship, theater performances, drama clubs, poetry slams, and one unforgettable love story!
