It's not like he has a social life that will interfere with his studying time. Especially after last year when he discovered the girl he used to crush on attends Rosewood, the all-female school down the road. Why is that bad news? That girl is dating his best friend and roommate. Trying to keep his crush a secret, Clay swears off social events. Best to fly under the radar until graduation. But his well-meaning roommate has other ideas.
Clay fights the pressure, but when it looks like his plan to avoid Rosewood might just work, he gets recruited for his community service assignment at Rosewood. He’s stuck helping out new girl, Indigo O’Reilly, with her art project. The two butt heads—she’s prickly and oversensitive, and Clay doesn’t understand art—it’s math and physics that make the world go around, after all.
But then Clay makes a grave mistake. One that might cost him not only his future, but his place at the school. And maybe worst of all? His best friend.
When Indigo steps in, he has no choice but to let her help him. Maybe the buttons she presses aren’t all the wrong ones. And the more they work together, the more they realize they might just have something in common.
