If you want more, you have to give less.

That’s the secret to dating in high school. By giving as little as they expect to get in return, seventeen-year-old Aubrey Housing and her three best friends have made it to the second semester of their senior year heartbreak-free. And it’s all thanks to a few simple rules: don’t commit, don’t be needy, and don’t give away your heart.

So when smoking-hot Nathan Diggs transfers to Lincoln High, it shouldn’t be a big deal. At least that’s what Aubrey tells herself. But Nathan’s new-boy charm, his kindness, and his disarming honesty throw Aubrey off her game and put her in danger of breaking the most important rule of all: Don’t fall in love.

I’m in love with that cover!

That is all.

  1. How interesting. The "don't commit" mindset seems to be a stereotypically guy thing. Interested to see this translated to a girl.

  11. I love this cover! I don't read as many contemporaries (trying to change that) but, this sounds like something I would really enjoy. I'm a sucker for sweet romance, and "Nathan’s new-boy charm, his kindness, and his disarming honesty throw Aubrey off-" sounds yummy :)
