Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she’s in love with her big brother’s best friend, but he hasn’t spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, change-your-life kiss. She got out of a terrible relationship. And now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It’s time for Plan B – college. And maybe a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.
Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he’s not telling anyone. Especially not his best friend’s incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship. But it doesn’t help that all he can think about kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.
As they’re thrown together more and more, Jase and Tess can’t keep denying their feelings for each other. But a familiar danger looms and tragedy strikes. As the campus recovers, the star-crossed couple must decide what they’re willing to risk to be together, and what they’re willing to lose if they’re not.
He closed his eyes and a deep sound came from the back of his throat. “God, Tess…”
I swallowed hard and then tilted my head, lining up our mouths. “Jase?”
There was a moment of hesitation and then he kissed me softly, a gently sweep of his lips over mine. A barely there touch that somehow effected me more than any of the other kisses. “I know you’ve been drinking. I don’t want that hanging between us.”
“We’ll talk more later. Okay? Right now, let me just get your not-drunk-but-slightly-tipsy cute ass upstairs.”
“You think my ass is cute?”
He pulled away, laughing. “Baby, your ass is like my own personal holy ground.”
