Eliza Woods is the epitome of your typical high school genius, for her life has always been simple. Her grades have been consistently impeccable, never once even making a B, until Mr. Ellis, her senior year Calculus teacher gives her her first failing grade. It's his first year teaching and it happens to be at Lawson High School, and because of his young age and intimidating good looks every student is anticipating his arrival. Cold and calculated, Mr. Ellis is the talk of the school, but little do they know Mr. Ellis will be the strictest teacher Lawson High School has ever seen and Eliza is left to face her first academic struggle. Determined to maintain her perfect GPA, Eliza attends tutorials after hours with Mr. Ellis and the instant connection and attraction that they feel for one another cannot be denied. As they both fall deeper into their dangerous world of secrets and seduction it becomes increasingly more difficult to remember what's at stake and what they both seem to forget is that secrets can't be held forever.
