I’ve spent my life running away from my past.
And for so long, that’s worked.
Now my past is out to get me in the form of Zach O’Malley.
He was my first crush, but that was then.
My name is still Beatrice Dobbs, but everything else has changed.
I’m an adult now.
I don’t want to go back to my troubled past.
Plus Zach is from the wrong side of the tracks.
Sure, back when I was in high school, I had a thing for the Bad Boy, but not anymore.
And on top of that, he’s trying to get me to reconnect with my mother.
I haven’t spoken to her since I was eighteen, and I would rather re-take the SAT’s than see her again.
And yet, I can’t seem to push Zach away.
He’s no good for me.
But maybe – just maybe– my teenage self was onto something.
What’s the harm in a little bit of fun?
