I thought I'd left Blackwater, Texas, behind for good. I didn't belong in the small town, but my dad wouldn't listen. He dragged me back home in his beat-up truck and dropped a bomb along the way: Chase Matthews was moving in with us. He was the golden boy of my high school, my former best friend, and the last person I wanted sleeping across the hall. His presence was too great a reminder of the ghosts I was trying to forget.
Levi McCoy took me under his wing when we were kids. He was my protector. My best friend. My everything. And I was sidekick. We stayed close, even when relationships and life in general tried to tear us apart. Years later, he landed an internship at Montague Enterprises, competing with my childhood nemesis, Conner Daniels, for the final coveted position. That's when things got messy. The two bargained for the official job offer, using me as their pawn. And I fell for it.

Georgie and Connor were once inseparable. Best friends from birth, they did everything together - until Connor's dad got a once-in-a-lifetime job offer and the family relocated to New York. Age 16, Georgie's life is totally different. Balancing school, work, and her dwindling social life is a challenge already, but it gets even more complicated when her conceited ex-best friend - who also happens to hold a major grudge against her for no apparent reason - moves back into town. One thing's for certain: friendship should come with an instruction booklet.

Amber works at her mother's magic shop - Windy City Magic - in downtown Chicago, and she's confident she's seen every kind of happy ending there is: except for one - her own.
