The guy I drop-kicked in seventh grade cannot be my blind date. The guy who earned me this infernal nickname.
More from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent as Fiona “Feisty” Gaskill gets her chance at love - drop-kick included.

It's their turn to pull the wishbone. ;)
Then again, I never thought I'd be arrested on RICO charges and hauled away in zip ties on camera for the world to see, minutes after closing the most amazing deal of my career.
And all of it in front of my biggest rival, billionaire wunderkind Ian McCrory.
I am broke.
I am disgraced.
I am alone.
I am a sucker.
But the worst part? I have to go back to my hometown and live in my bedroom filled with relics from my childhood.
Lisa Frank never made me so mad before.
Just when I needed a rescue, I got one -- in the form of help from my biggest rival.
He can't bring back my money.
He certainly can't bring back my reputation or my pride.
But there's one thing he can bring back to me.
A sense of hope.
Maybe even love.
Ian sees something in me no one else does, and he's relentless about making me see it, too. As we grow closer, I'm starting to see that while my entire life used to be a lie, the truth is staring me in the present -- and it's a truth I like very, very much, hot eyes and gorgeous smile and all.
But I have to be careful.
I can't be too --
The final book in the USA Today bestselling Do-Over Series (Fluffy, Perky, Feisty), as Mallory's sister, Hastings "Hasty" Monahan gets her turn at a happily ever after that starts off with an arrest.
And ends with a surprisingly cheesy happily ever after.
