She was a nice person, she told herself. Friendly. She liked people and she adored making them happy with her food. If not for Greg, her life would be perfect. But she had a solution for that problem and an appointment with the town’s mayor to discuss her brilliant idea. One that would help her make a name for herself and get over Greg Clary once and for all.

And kissing turned into, well, you know. She could have lived with the biggest mistake of her life, except that partway through he’d figured out it was her first time, which meant it wasn’t his.

Romantic, what- if-I’ve-secretly-loved-him-mywhole-life kind of feelings. Talk about a mistake. Greg wasn’t just popular, he was a chick magnet. She would have been little more than one more girl who fell for him.
