Nothing Like The Movies
Laken Craft was the epitome of a hot mess.
If you asked Laken himself, he would tell you his life was a series of unfortunate events. Being the abnormally nerdy one in his family, he moved up a grade where he hides in the shadow of his star athlete, people-pleasing, party animal older brother, Eric and his only friend is a sarcastic girl by the name of Dana.
Laken stays closely within the walls of his comfort zone, being perfectly fine with being invisible. Sure, he faces a snarky cheerleader bitch hellbent on ruining his life and his brothers neanderthal friends here and there, but it's nothing he can't handle.
At least until Travis.
Laken's life is completely flipped upside down when he meets the flirtatious boy. Travis is like the perfect mixture of sin to Laken-- dangerous, tempting, spontaneous, the right amount of charming, and with a strangely particular interest in Laken, it makes the small boy question everything he's ever thought he knew.
Throw in a complicated past and too many secrets coming to light and you've got the perfect plot to a coming of age romance right? Wrong, this story is nothing like the movies.
