Sweet Poison // z.m. au
It's the classic story: good girl meets bad boy and their feelings start to bloom. But what if the good girl wasn't so good?
Bethany Fowler is a seventeen-year-old genius. She's never gotten anything less than an A+ on an assignment, she's never been in detention, and she's never dated anyone who isn't on the school academic team. So when she falls for the rocker with tattoos and piercings, things start to get out of control...fast.
Zayn Malik is said rocker, and he just arrived at Jamestown High from Britain. Every girl is swooning over his accent, his hair, and his gorgeous eyes. So naturally he notices the girl who isn't paying him any attention whatsoever: Bethany.
After a rocky start, the two agree to see each other in secret; Bethany is trying to get into her dream school and doesn't want anything messing up her perfect reputation, while Zayn is willing to do anything to be with this girl, who's aloofness he finds absolutely irresistible.
But a relationship built on secrets has to contain a few of its own. As Zayn delves deeper into Bethany's world, he discovers that someone with such a perfect track record could have some incredibly imperfect background. And as the two grow closer, more than a college acceptance letter could be at stake.
After all, poison, no matter how sweet, is meant to kill.
