Publication Date: Sept 8, 2015
Publisher: Swoon Romance
Genre: YA, Contemporary
Katie thought she knew where her life was going. She was dating the captain of the football team, had a BFF for life, and everyone at school wanted to be her. But then her pregnant teen sister’s pregnancy changes all that. Everyone dumps her, including her friends and boyfriend.
Hey, Katie, welcome to life at the bottom of the high school food chain. This is how the other half lives.
Then there’s Nick. He’s a straight-A student and self-professed geek who’s had a thing for her since middle school. He needs a date for the winter formal, and Katie needs something to keep her busy. Nick’s plight becomes her personal pet project. She will help him get over his insecurities and get a date. Besides, she was popular once. She knows how to get dates.
But Nick has other plans. He’s going to use these “dating” lessons as a way to win Katie’s heart.
Okay. I could do this. I took a deep breath and imagined me walking right up to her and pulling her to me and kissing the crap right out of her. I imagined her melding into my arms. I imagined everything.
I turned. Her confused expression tightened the knots in my stomach. I pushed my glasses up on my nose and went in. As soon as my hands clasped behind her head, her face tilted up. A surprise sound made its way from her throat right before our lips met.
Years of longing, of wondering fell away within half a second as my eager lips touched her soft, perfect ones. I kissed her for the sixth grade me, for the eighth and ninth grade me, who’d missed her like crazy, and then I tried to kiss the word friend from her vocabulary.
It must have been working because she kissed me back. In my dreams, I’d fantasized this whole scenario but dreams were nothing compared to the reality of having Katie Ross kiss me back.
