Which was why I stood in a freezing cold corridor in a thin satin slip dress, having the bodice altered to make it fit properly. “Keep still,” hissed the woman through a mouthful of pins. “I don’t want to get blood on this dress.” I did as I was told, trying not to shiver and inadvertently get pricked. Amber had roped me into modelling at the Ealynn Sands Annual Summer Fashion Pageant. Her mother worked in the hotel which hosted it, and two girls they’d lined up to model had dropped out at the last minute. So Sonya had spoken to Amber, who’d spoken to me, and before long we were trying on outfits and now being made up to within an inch of our lives. While I enjoyed fashion, my interests lay on the other side of the industry in marketing and PR. This week, I’d got the news I’d been accepted for an internship next summer with a prestigious consultancy in New York. It was everything I wanted… Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s. Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Central Park and yellow cabs…you name it, I was ready. Anything to do with the Big Apple and I wanted it. When I’d told her, Amber had been excited for me, even though it meant missing out on our usual summer plans. Selfishly, I didn’t care. One summer away from here wouldn’t hurt anyone, well, except maybe Amber. She would miss me. “Excuse me, ladies,” a male voice cut through the excited chatter in the corridor, “coming through!” My gaze fell on the waiter pushing through the hallway with a tray full of empty plates and dirty cutlery. Dark curly hair, brown and gold eyes, and a muscled body clad in the regulation uniform of black jeans with a black and white horizontal striped t-shirt. I practically drooled. Justin Navarro. For years, he and I had danced around each other every summer. Almost getting together. Almost, but not quite. He brushed past me, his arm skimming my nipples, which tightened enough in response that he noticed and paused. The corner of his mouth quirked, his eyes catching mine. “Sorry,” he murmured. The low octave of his voice sent waves down my spine.

She has plans to go to New York and live this glamorous life, until things happen. Lennon and Justin strike sparks off each other from the jump. But Lennon is an entitled, rich princess, or so Justin thinks, so she’s off limits. Plus she’s leaving town. Justin isn’t necessarily what I’d call a boy from the wrong side of the tracks but he’s definitely not in Lennon’s neighborhood, even though they have the same friend group. Justin and Lennon both have a case of judging a book by it’s cover and being wrong. Justin is not what Lennon thinks and Lennon isn’t what Justin thinks. A good story that teaches you not to judge people at first glance. 4 stars!
