Derek Knight has always been Kingsbury's bad boy. But when he's arrested his freshman year of high school, for the murder of Thomas Harding, his reputation goes from bad to worse. After a short three year incarceration in juvenile detention, Derek returns to Kingsbury High to finish his senior year. He's feared by everyone and afraid of no one. When Arabella Masterson, a quiet girl who prefers to blend in, is assigned to tutor Derek for the rest of the school year, Derek finds his hard shell slowly beginning to crack. When Derek brings a little spice to Arabella's world, she finds herself craving more. With issues from Derek's past and his bad boy reputation always getting in the way, can Derek and Arabella somehow fight through it all, or is the relationship they worked to build a means to an end?
