I’ve always lived in the shadows of my athletic older brother and my charismatic twin sister. And that’s okay by me. I don’t mind being known as the shy wallflower. The gawky geek. The sweet, virginal girl. Well, that’s one label I’ve been trying to shed since starting my freshman year in college this year. The thing is, no one’s ever looked twice at me.
Until I met Van Gerard.
He notices me. He looks at me and seems to like what he sees. He understands and listens to me. He’s become a great friend. The problem is, I don’t want him as a friend.
I want more.
But my brother – along with a state line between us, and oh yeah, Van’s long-time girlfriend – are just a few complications getting in the way of what I want.
I thought my senior year in college would be the best time of my life. I’m a starter on a Pac-12 basketball team, set to graduate with a degree in Finance. I have a girlfriend whom I’d planned to start a future with. I thought my life was already mapped out.
But then the bottom dropped out with a confession I never expected to hear, from the girl I thought I knew.
I thought wrong.
Luckily for me, Kylah Griffin was there to break my fall. She’s the best thing this year has given me. She’s helped me through a devastating blow that could have sent me reeling.
I know she wants more, but I’m not sure I can give it. Now that I’ve been burned, I don’t think I can go there again. Kylah’s not a hook-up, and she’s definitely not a rebound. She’s a sweet girl who deserves more than to be friend-zoned.
If only things weren’t so complicated.

This was the first book I have read by Sierra Hill. She is a very talented author and I cannot wait to read more books from her.
I absolutely love this book! The story between Kylah and Van is complicated, but everything works out the way it should. Kylah is a freshman in college who is shy, dorky, and a sweet girl. She hates being known as the sweet girl and wants to change that. She meets Van, her brothers friend and falls for him quickly. He is nothing but a gentleman, but that might be due to the fact he has a girlfriend of 5 years. Van goes through a rough break up with his girlfriend. Finding out she cheated on him and is pregnant with someone else baby. Kyle is right there to help him through, but in more ways than she truly knows. Will these two end up together or will the ex girlfriend or Kylah’s brother get in the way?
