The star quarterback dating a theater geek like me? As if anyone would believe that. If Brian Kirkland is the reigning king of the jocks, I guess that makes me the queen of the drama department. Hard to believe we were ever best friends. These days we go to great lengths to ignore one another. But when Brian's current diva girlfriend convinces him to try out for my play, there's no way to avoid him. I try to keep it professional, but years of anger and resentment are hard to dismiss. It doesn't help that he's just as cocky as I remember.
A new school means a fresh start. So long Ronnie Smith, invisible tomboy, and hello Veronica, popular new hottie. This is my chance to finally be seen...and kissed. The only problem?

The new guy at school was officially Kate's worst nightmare. And that was before he turned her world upside down with a mind-blowing kiss. Kate's an introvert. Levis is...not. Some might say he's a loudmouthed jerk. Kate definitely would, especially since he seems determined to make her life miserable by putting her in the spotlight every chance he gets. His opportunities are endless now that she's babysitting his little brother, and when they're paired up together for an intramural scrimmage? Well, there's no hope of avoiding him now. She's stuck with him, for better or worse.
