"She took another deep breath, filling her diaphragm, allowing the oxygen to penetrate into her lungs through the alveoli, passing into her blood and up her pulmonary veins to her heart, before she finally got the courage to knock on Ryder’s door."
"She blushed, the blood vessels in her neck, ears, and chest dilating as adrenaline sent more blood to her heart."
"She felt tears scratch at her eyes—her stupid endocrine system releasing hormones into her ocular area."
This good girl’s about to meet her match…
Ryder Brooks is living the dream—he’s famous, loved by millions of girls, and miserable. All he really wants is to write his own music, not Seconds to Juliet’s sugary sweet pop. In order to do that, though, the “bad boy” of the band will have to play by the rules. And that includes behaving with his new—and super cute—über-good-girl tutor.
Mia Reyes is in fangirl heaven. Tutoring her favorite member of her favorite band? It’s a dream come true…until it turns into a complete nightmare. Ryder is nothing like she thought. He’s crude, arrogant, and pretty much a total jerk. And the worst part? She’s roped into pretending to be his girlfriend so that no one finds out he’s being tutored. Fake kisses, plenty of PDA, and even sharing his hotel room…
But sometimes even the baddest of bad boys needs a little redemption.
He didn't usually go for brainy and modest, but there was an intensity in Mia's spirit that he craved. A fire in her eyes she was consistently extinguishing. He couldn't help but be curious what might happen if she let it burn.
If he forced her to let it burn.
She was glad he had willpower. The way he made her feel when he kissed her, touched her, like she was a solid turned to liquid and then to mist, she might have done a lot more than she said she was ready for—just because it felt so good.
Being ready had little to do with being when you were in the moment.
It was amazing how things could change so quickly between two people. How hate could turn to amusement could turn to like could turn to love could turn to hate again. Relationships were like a roller coaster with the safety bars broken.
