Meet Jake DeLangley, a third year, Undeclared Major at New York University, who has just been put on probation and has lost his full-ride financial scholarship due to a prank at an illegal campus party that he and his friends were part of.  Most would think this would be a wakeup call to change their ways of life, but not Jake.  Jake, the never studied for anything but still got straight A’s in class, loved his lazy way of life, and didn’t see any reason to change. So when Jake’s parents refuses to pay for college and become fed up with his party life, they set him up with a paying summer job with his Uncle Jimmy-Taft that he’s never met before, and with two missions: make enough to pay for college on his own and get his life straighten out.

Now more than 750 miles away from New York in the little town of Batesburg-Leesville in South Carolina, Jake is learning what it means to work for your money, and that the summers in the south are not to be taken lightly.  Just when he thought his days couldn’t get much hotter, he ends up crossing paths with Bethany Shealey, who in his eyes is the definition of a classic southern belle. However, Bethany isn’t as perfect as she may seem, for she has secret burdens of her own, and with a new boy in town with the reputation of being a bad boy, can Bethany learn to control her instant curiosity and attraction towards him? Can Jake pull in the reins of his party life in order to stay in school?  Will Jake’s uncle be able to teach him what it means to be a man, to own up to his mistakes, and take on the challenges of life? Last but not least, will Jake learn what it means to protect the things he loves and the people he cares about? Find out in this summer sizzling teen novella.
