When I lost my best friend, I lost myself. Until he arrived. Darian Montgomery–The billionaire’s heir. They say he was expelled from his last school, but no one knows why. Worse, he’s kind of obsessed with me (god knows why), even though the last thing I need is a boyfriend right now, especially one who’s arrogant, entitled and, yes, all kinds of cute. But when we’re forced together for a project, I start to see behind the façade. There’s more than meets the eye to this bad boy, an actual human being. My emotions are spiraling and I have no clue what to do. A surprise wilderness camp only compounds matters, not to mention a bombshell secret.
