Enjoy an excerpt:
“See any cute guys yet?” I asked.
“The jury is still out,” Sierra said. Just then, I felt a light touch on my shoulder. It kind of tickled. I turned around and was met with friendly dark eyes. He was about six-foot-two. He was built, too. He had athletic broad shoulders, muscular legs, and a cute crooked smile. His T-shirt and cargo shorts were really lacrosse-boyish. He reminded me of a comic book character. He was kind of like Jughead with more of a sun-kissed complexion.
Had I eaten one too many five-cent bubble gums wrapped in Archie comics? I guess this made me Veronica—I laughed at the thought.
“I’m Merek,” he said. I turned around for a second. Sierra was out of sight. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed that Cara had made a beeline for Dimitri. Odd, yet interesting. What did she want with him? What did she want with us, for that matter? Maybe just to be friends. Was I that rusty at making new friends?
“You seem to know many people from my school,” he said.
“Is that so?”
“Maybe I should know you. You go there?” he asked.
“Yeah. What year are you?”
“I’ll be a senior next year,” he said.
“Where did you go before?”
“Beverly Hills High.”
“A West coaster! That’s where the wicked tan comes from. Beach bum.” I laughed.
He had very fine features. His petite nose added to my comic book theory. It was as if someone had drawn his nose. He had big, manly hands. I noticed because he kept fumbling with them.
“Well, not a true, as you call it, West coast boy. My father is a diplomat. I’ve lived in a few places. For now, we call New York home,” he said.
“Now that I met you. I will thank my father. New York is a great choice,” he said.
I felt something about him. Odd.
“Did you have something to drink?” he asked.
“Chai Tea Latte is my drink.”
He stood there for a moment, thinking.
“Uh. I got it,” he said.
I watched him walk away. What was I doing? He turned around and walked back toward me. I bit my lip a little. It’d been two years since I let a guy buy me anything. And for good reason, I had to remind myself. “I see you came here with three girls. Do they want something?”
