Sometimes in love, you choose wrong…
Eight years ago, Lennon lost his heart to Rain, and suddenly she’s back, all grown up and sexy as hell. At a sorority party, he convinces himself that outbidding every other guy for a body shot from Rain is for charity. But he knows better. He doesn’t want any guy, except him, tarnishing the memory of the little girl he proposed to in fifth grade.
Jinx loves Lennon and is past ready for him to make his move. With his sexual prowess, she worries why he hasn’t made any advances. She fears she is losing him, and the only way to keep him is to overcome her past and give him what he desires.
Rain knows Lennon is trouble. If she couldn’t say no to the gangly boy asking her to skateboard off some roof, how will she refuse Lennon’s seductive powers now that he is a man? Rain has many reasons to resist his charm. He has a girlfriend, he’s moving to LA with her, and Rain has no intention to march in the long parade of Lennon Tyler conquests.
Now, Lennon must choose. Someone has to lose, and that person could be him.

“I was your best friend, and you didn’t even say goodbye.” The edge in my voice forces goose bumps to march along her arms and onto her breasts. I can’t help but stare at every amazing square inch of her body.
“I’m sorry, Lennon,” she blurts out, tears rimming her beautiful eyes.
The familiar tanzanite and diamond ring I stole from my mother to propose to the little blonde girl sparkles in front of me on her long slender fingers. The ones I showed how to play guitar. Judging by the short-clipped nails on her left hand, she still plays. Her calloused fingertips, from a steel-stringed guitar, scratch my thumb as I caress each one of them.
“Where the hell have you been the past eight years?” Hurt and anger lace my words.
“You have a girlfriend.” Her voice trembles.
“Why, Rain? Why didn’t you talk to me after that day? Why did you run away?” I’m squeezing tight enough that her arm turns red. I’m so desperately afraid of losing her again.
“I couldn’t. I just couldn’t.” Her eyes roll up and she mutters, “Shut-up.”
I burst out laughing. “Are you talking to me or do you still talk to yourself?”
Her brow crinkles. “Not for eight years.”
So I’m a bad influence on her. “What’s the Devil Girl telling you to do?” I hope it has something to do with wrestling me to the ground and defiling me.
“Nothing,” she says defiantly.
And then it hits me like a sledgehammer. “How do you know I have a girlfriend?”
