Release Date: July 5, 2016
Becca McKenzie is just trying to make it through her senior year of high school. She has good friends and a gorgeous boyfriend but Ryan Jackson, the bane of her existence, keeps popping up everywhere.
She doesn’t care that they were best friends for years. She doesn’t care that their moms are close and therefore she hears more about him that she’d ever care to know. She doesn’t care that their mutual friend, Jake, keeps pushing them all to hang out together, and she especially doesn’t care that the rest of the school bows down and worships him.
Becca decided years ago that he wasn’t worth her time and nothing, NOTHING, is going to change her mind.
“Come on, tell me, Becs.” There it is again, that old nickname. I turn my head to look at him. He’s studying me intently.
“Don’t call me that.”
“Because it’s not my name.”
“Yes it is,” he says with a smile.
“No. My name is Rebecca. Or Becca. Not Becs. It’s too…” I pause. “It’s too familiar,” I tell him with a sigh.
“Hey, Ryan,” two girls greet him, smiling flirtatiously as they walk past us. My eyes follow them, glad for the distrac-tion, but when I turn back to Ryan, he hasn’t even glanced in their direction. His eyes are still focused on mine.
I raise my eyebrows at him. “You don’t want to follow them and see if there’s a spare classroom you can take advantage of?”
He smirks at me and glances away briefly before looking back into my eyes. “I’d rather talk to you,” he says quietly.
