Abby Sellers knows what she wants.
Enduring eighteen years in the shadow of her identical twin sister, Annika, she wants a fresh start. A chance to create her own life, separate from her conniving, deceptive twin.
Surprising both her family and friends, Abby ditches her plans for college and enrolls at a new school instead. There, she encounters West Montgomery, a sexy fellow student who immediately disarms her with his good looks and charm. West takes a liking to Abby and she suddenly finds herself walking a thin line, fabricating a fictional life created not by lies but by omission. She soon discovers West has secrets of his own, secrets that he's not altogether interested in sharing.
Out from under the shadow of her twin, Abby's life—and her relationship with West—blossoms. When Abby leaves town one weekend, something unthinkable happens and her relationship with West is shattered. Reeling from the discovery, Abby fears all of her plans have backfired and she's created a mess for both of them, a mess that no one can clean up.
But West isn't willing to let her go that easily. When he forces her to confront secrets they've both been hiding, Abby must decide more than if she's willing to forgive and forget. She must also decide just what kind of life she wants...and who she wants to live it with.
Excerpt-He sat up a little. His hands were in his lap but his leg was still touching me, pressed firmly against
mine. “Remember the other night when we were in my room?”
“And I said I wanted to show you something.” He smiled. “I knew what you were thinking. Just
some con to get you in my room. Get you alone. Remember? I said as much.”
I nodded again. I remembered. Crystal clear.
“But I didn't attack you, did I? I could have—and I know I could've worn you down. Trust me. But
I didn't. I went into my closet and I pulled out that damn box and I shared part of me with you.”
“I know,” I said, my voice barely a whisper.
“It's easy to hook up with someone.” He reached for my hand, covering it with both of his. “Get
off and go. Believe me, I've had that.”
I felt my insides somersault a little. I'd already figured as much but it sucked hearing it from him.
“I don't want that with you,” he said. “And I know I'm a tough person to get to know. I don't make
it easy. But I'm trying with you. Because I like you.” His hands squeezed mine gently. “I really like
you, Abby Sellers.”
There was something in the way he said it that eliminated any doubt I had about him. And as nice
as it was to hear him respect my feelings, there was a tiny part of me that was disappointed that he
wasn't going to rip my clothes off, throw me down on the floor and have his way with me. But I knew
how rare it was to find a guy who actually meant what he said and then backed it up with actions. West
West was special.
