Tessa O’Connell has everything she’s ever wanted for herself by the start of her senior year in high school. With her loving boyfriend Jay and her best friend Nicole by her side, there’s nothing that could bring her down, well with the exception Cole Stone. He may be Jay’s step brother AND Nicole’s friend with frequent benefits but no one rattles Tessa more than he does. He’s dark, brooding, sinfully gorgeous and…seems to loathe her guts. She’s done figuring out what his problem is but can’t deny that there’s something about Cole that gets her pulse racing. Once someone that pranked her mercilessly as kids, he’s now the infamous bad boy who for the past three years has pretended that she doesn’t exist. Tessa knows that she should stay away, be happy that he’s left her alone but when Cole’s attentions become less annoying and more…dare she say romantic, she begins to question his real motives and wonder what happened all those years ago. And as he gets bolder in his advances, Tessa’s forced to confront the choices she’s made in her seemingly perfect life so far and whether her the boy she claims to love is truly the person who’s right for her.
