Life and death have a way of tainting fairy tales in the ugliest way.
You know the sugary-sweet romances where the new girl moves to a small town, falls in love with the most popular guy in school, and they live happily ever after?
I wish my story were that simple.
Levi Hollingsworth is the most popular guy in school. He’s stoic, mysterious, and aloof. A man among boys. He claims attention wherever he goes, whether he wants it or not. And he doesn’t want it.
The broody grump wants nothing to do with anyone. Especially me—the new girl who’s failing chemistry. And Levi is my new tutor.
Little does he know, my grades are the least of my problems. Being forced to move to Virginia has everything to do with dirty politics, sex scandals, and cold cases.
I already thought my life was complicated when I landed in the commonwealth and was forced to live with my horrid grandmother. But when the guy wants the girl, he’ll do everything to make her his.
I just hope I don’t take Levi down with me.
