About the Book
If high school has taught mathlete Jade Aaron anything, it’s that nerds never get the guy.
So when rock star Lennon Pryor starts pursuing her, It’s not rocket science. This doesn’t add up.
I mean, sure, he’s hot.
And a god on the guitar…
But he’s also the world’s biggest player. Being with him would be a bigger mistake than 2+2=5.
Until graduation night, when a reckless moment leads to a reckless kiss. And now Jade’s falling for the one guy destined to break her heart.
Special Deleted Scene!
This is a deleted scene from later in the book—a scene that you see from Braylen’s point of view in the first book Love in the Friend Zone. I was exploring the scene from Jade’s point of view and all her emotions from the events that have led to the end of the night, and while I enjoyed their dynamic, it wasn’t crucial to keep in the book J But I do love seeing the friendship between Braylen and Jade, and how supportive of each other they are.
After a few seconds Braylen jolted against the loveseat, her eyes popping at something on her cell.
“What is it?” I asked.
“Fynn,” She showed me the text indicator on her screen.
“Read it!” I demanded and was grateful when she let me read it over her shoulder. Hope flared in my chest for them both, wanting for at least Bray to get her heart mended by the end of the night.
Fynn: The show is about to start. Will you meet me in the crowd?
I squealed clapping my hands. “Type yes!”
“What?” I gaped at her. “You can. You have to.” If Lennon had texted me to meet him somewhere—despite everything that had happened tonight—I would do it in a blink. Because there was something between us and if I got a chance to figure out officially where we stood, I’d be all over it.
I watched the hesitance flicker over her face as she stared down at her cell.
“You have something worth fighting for,” I said. “It may hurt like hell, but it’s worth it.” I nudged her. “At least go see what he wants.”
And as I saw the hope flare to life in her eyes, the same weight pressed down on my chest. I was happy for her, but sad for me and Lennon. Because my cell wasn’t blowing up with texts of invitations or apologies.
Jade is super vulnerable in the scene above, as is Braylen. I think them being together in that moment was pretty crucial for the friends, and it helped encourage each of them to own the night regardless of what had already happened.
All three of the girls, Braylen, Zoey, and Jade’s friendship was something I really enjoyed writing!
