Read An Excerpt:
‘I had kissed three other boys before him; two of them had been short time boyfriends. So my body’s sudden nervous shivering shouldn’t have been happening. My entire face turned blush red, even my chest turned red at his touch. How embarrassing!
He let out a small chuckle and looked at me like I was suddenly just this young high schooler, a preppy girl and way too innocent, and he was so much older. He wasn’t. In fact, I think I might have been older than him by a few days.
I tried to make a straight face, half insulted that my unexpected reaction had amazed him so, and half going crazy from how good his lips had felt. Clearly those other boys had no idea how to kiss and I hadn’t figured that out until now, until this scandalous and quite random time with Danny Cross that shouldn’t have taken place.
I moved my face closer to his, only the slightest half an inch, trying to show him that I wasn’t afraid, and yet I was. He pulled me in again and then there was no turning back. This moment was one that felt way too good as his hands cupped my face and then moved down my sides, resting on the lower space of my back as he pulled me closer to him.
I told myself that I’d enjoy this, let myself fall deep for only a moment, and then tomorrow I’d ignore him again. Tomorrow I’d treat him like I always had, a nobody in my friend’s elitist world. And yet, there was a part of my conscience that was enjoying this way too much. I enjoyed the way my heart was beating and feeling like it wanted to burst right then. It whispered that maybe tomorrow we could just do this one more time and nobody would see … and then maybe the next day …
Danny Cross, the best friend of my sworn enemy, had hooked me. Yet in that moment, I hadn’t even known it yet.’
