"College. A new beginning.  A new place.  A new obstacle. Everyone is mature.  It's nothing like High School. That's what they tell us,  but I'm here to tell you they lied."

Avery Ross has always been different. Having a professor father and a lawyer mother Avery was taught at a very young age to work hard.  Shes know as a "Prodigy" in the Ross household.  When her principal tells her father that Avery is to skip Junior and Senior year,  Avery's father enrolls her in the college  he works at. Wanting her to live the full experience he buys her an apartment and tells her to get a job  and roommate.  After putting up ads all over the school for a roommate Avery doesn't expect the schools walking disaster to show up at her door step begging for a place to stay. Is Ryder Davenport as bad as everyone makes him out to be? Is he just some rich boy putting on a show? Or is he something more? Can a sixteen year old girl really make it through college?

"I could have you if I wanted you, Avery. You are so naive." He moved his arms around me so I was trapped. I opened my mouth and stared up at him.

"You're parents are even more naive. I wonder sometimes if they would have let any guy move in here with you. Or did they just pick me because they actually trust me?" I couldn't move. I was scared of what he was going to do next.

"You're cute, Kitten." He whispered, his voice husky. He let his hand brush against my cheek.

"And completely off limits." He said, his warm breath against my neck sent a shiver through me. He pulled himself away from me before stealing a package of my Pop Tarts and leaving me to stare after him.

This breaks my heart cause it reminds me of my ex cause he used to say it all the time and we broke up cause of distance)):
I love it and by the way I'm reading all your books at the moment.
Maskini, I feel bad for Ave. I get that she's excelling in practically every subject and she's a prodigy, but can't her dad just let her have a normal life, when he sees that she clearly doesn't want to be a college student at just 16?
I love how you hook the reader into your writing, very professional and makes me want to read chapter 2!
yay, awesome start! Enjoying the story so far, and your Trailer was awesome too! I wish i was as devoted as you to create a trailer, lol.
                              looking forward :)
