Shayna Gillan is on a mission: start fresh in a new state without the small town gossip that has haunted her since her bad girl days of high school.
Carter MacPherson has long been the most together member of his crazy family--until now, and with a secret threatening to crumble everything he's worked for, he wishes he could forget the recent past, too.
The last thing Shayna and Carter are looking for is a relationship. It's best to be alone while they sort out their issues.
Friends. That's all they can ever be.
But even the best laid plans always have a flaw, and once Shayna and Carter cross the line between friendship and more, there's no turning back...
The only question left is--whose past will catch up to them first?
"Shayna’s nails rake gently over my chest in a way that should be soothing. I should be able to fall asleep to the rhythm of her soft breaths, but all I can think is, ‘tell her.’
Each rasp of her nail on my skin is another slice in my resolve though.
This homesick feeling—the feeling of searching for something that maybe doesn’t even exist—the feeling that has gnawed at me for as long as I can remember is gone when I’m with her. Being with Shayna is like a bandage for my damn soul. But she’s spent the last year getting her life back together, so when I tell her what’s really going on with me, she’s going to leave."
I pull the curtain back again. Maybe I imagined it. I probably imagined it.There’s no way that he’s standing next to my mom at my engagement party.No.Way.And yet, as I rub my hand down the throwback red velvet drape, I see him. Clinking champagne flutes with Dad. Raising his eyebrow and taking in Quinn a little too long to be appropriate. Talking to my parents like he belongs here. Like he isn’t the reason I fled Georgia in the first place. It’s fine. It is. Running out on my old life, brought me to Carter--and to what is supposed to be a perfect day that I painstakingly prepared for.
Carter catches my eye from across the room and I watch the momentary blip of confusion on his face, the way his brows pull down in the middle. But he shakes it right off and a smile stretches across that gorgeous, trusting face.
“Shay! Come join the party!” he calls.
I want to run away. Again.Carter catches my eye from across the room and I watch the momentary blip of confusion on his face, the way his brows pull down in the middle.

All London Noble wanted out of her senior year of high school was anonymity. The complete opposite of Jasmine, her emotionally unstable baby sister, London has worked hard to stay out of the spotlight.
Then she discovers that Wade, one of the most popular guys in school, is gay like her and their new-found closeness based around their shared secret has half the student body convinced they're hooking up...and a lot of girls aren't happy about it. Now she's been dubbed "Dirty London." Rumors are flying about her inability to keep her clothes on, and London is pretty sure she's developing a crush on the one girl who sees through it all.
If she could admit why stealing boyfriends is the last thing on her mind—not to mention find out what's going on with Jasmine and her rapidly disappearing psych medications—her life would be a much brighter place. But if her and Wade's truth gets out, and if she doesn't find a way to help her sister, London faces losing a lot more than her obscurity.
