[Previously titled Her Tattoo]

He's looking at me and I feel insecure even in the dark. It's as if he's really seeing me, really studying me and to make it worse, he doesn't say anything. I don't know if I'm imagining it, but he seems to be getting closer and closer to me.
When I realize he is, I start to breathe faster. I can feel the warmth of his body near me and it's intoxicating.
"Dylan-" I instinctively put my hands on his chest. His heart is beating rhythmically in his chest and it only makes mine flutter more.
"I'm going to kiss you, Lace," his voice is raspy and barely above a whisper.

Lacey Reyes seems to have it all: parents who love her, a best friend who is always there for her, and a boyfriend who might be the one. Then life comes crashing down at the end of her junior year of high school when she loses her parents in a car accident and her boyfriend cheats on her. Still grieving, she moves in with her aunt, ends her relationship, and just wants everything to work in her favor again.
Coming back from a stress-free summer, she's ready to take on her senior year without any obstacles. What she doesn't expect is to catch the attention of Dylan Parker, the mysterious boy with a bad reputation. And to top it all off, her ex is aiming to mend their broken bond. Should she forgive the boy who broke her heart and says he's still in love with her? Or should she give her heart to a new boy who makes her feel alive again, but comes with some serious baggage?
