Book Description:

Claire Nixon is a twenty-year-old college dropout with a secret.

To Claire, Adam Parker is just another flirty customer at the cafe, until a chance encounter and seemingly innocent comment spurs a bet between them. The bet is simple: If Adam can get Claire to reveal the secret that made her drop out of college, she has to re-enroll. If he doesn’t succeed, she gets to keep her secret and he has to stop stalking her at the cafe.

Claire thinks she has this one in the bag. She’s perfected the art of forgetting her past. But she isn’t prepared for Adam’s relentless pursuit or for him to share his own secrets. And she’s definitely not prepared for her rock star ex, and her secret, to come banging down her door one year later.


At exactly six in the evening, a knock comes at the door. I’m ready with my yellow bikini underneath my faded-blue Roxy T-shirt and a pair of white board shorts that I usually only wear around the house because they barely cover my ass, but Senia insisted I wear them. I’m excited. I’ve seen guys—hot guys—surfing at the beach dozens of times since I moved to Wrightsville Beach, but something about getting to see Adam out there gives me butterflies. I’m finally going to get to share his passion for the water with him. And enough time, and meditation, has passed between Saturday and today that I’m feeling a lot less guilty about leaving him hanging.

I open the door and Adam is leaning against the doorframe with one hand in the pocket of his board shorts. He’s shirtless so even when he looks up at me with those striking green eyes, all I can look at is his perfectly muscular chest.

“Are you ready to get tossed?”

“Is that a promise?” I say as I step outside.

He laughs as he throws his arms around my waist, lifts me off the ground, and kisses me. His lips are warm and soft as I take his bottom lip between my teeth.

He moans softly and I feel him stiffening against me. “You’d better stop that or I’m going to take you upstairs right now.”

I give him a soft peck on the lips then tighten my arms around his neck as I lay my head on his shoulder. He squeezes me tightly and I sigh. This is the best hug I’ve gotten in months. He finally sets me down and cradles my face as he kisses both my eyelids.

“Thanks for coming with me.”

I grin uncontrollably because something has shifted between us. Something magical is happening. I feel deliriously happy for the first time since Chris left.

  1. Christina Racich says:

    I am excited to read this book and thank you for this give away! Hope I win!!!! 😉

  2. Dione Sage says:

    This book sounds wonderful and it’s probably not a bad idea to read a book that doesn’t have a tattooed rock god or dominant billionaire in it. A surfer sounds like a perfect break. Hmmm, maybe it doesn’t count though since there is mention of a rock star ex. Either way this book has me wanting to know more!

  3. Louisa says:

    I was shockingly surprised when I read this! It was so brilliant, and Claire’s secret was so unexpected it completely threw me. It was heartbreaking and very beautiful. I can’t wait to find out what happens next with Claire and Adam!

  4. Sara G. says:

    I LOVE The Jerk too, Cassia! “He hates these cans! Stay away from the cans!” I used to watch it when I went to my grandparent’s house all the time when I was around 13-14 🙂 Also love Homeland!
