"We need something to make sure that neither of us will say a word, something to seal the deal."
"What?" I ask, narrowing my eyes. I don't entirely trust the way the corner of his lips have just flicked up in a self-confident smile.

When Ruby Parkes and Levi Parker accidentally end up with each other's personal files at a school counselling meeting, Levi does not take it well. Adamant that Ruby will open her mouth and destroy his sterling reputation, he proposes a penalty in case any of them lets their secrets slip: a picture of them kissing that will be shared and consequently ruin both their relationships.
Sure that this won't change anything, Ruby agrees. But it does. Worlds collide, love is lost and found, and they both learn a lesson that will stick with them for life.
What Levi doesn't realise is that he's given Ruby three things to keep quiet about. A secret. A kiss.
...And the fact she thinks she's falling for him.
