There are some things I excel at:
- Exercising rigid control over every aspect of my life
- Making sensible decisions at every turn
- Being organized, predictable and responsible to an abnormal degree
In short, I’m boring as hell and in desperate need of a change.
Luckily I have my best friend by my side and a newly written to-do list to guide my way through the murky waters of finding happiness.
It’s all very promising at first, but as weeks pass, I start to realize that the best part of my day has always been Kai.
And when I see him out on a date with some guy?
Let’s just say I’m definitely not happy about it.
I’m back in Boston after ten years of traveling, and I’ve fulfilled all my goals:
- See the world
- Figure out what to do with my life
- Get over my impossible crush on Gray
Check, check and check.
Life’s good until I accidentally find Gray’s happy list, which contains some very interesting things that friends never ever do with each other.
And as weeks pass, it becomes clear those not-so-innocent parts are the ones Gray is determined to explore with me.
In short, I’m screwed because no matter how hard I try, I can’t resist him, and pretty soon I’m forced to admit that
I’m not as done with my crush as I thought I was…
“It’s your fault that we even need to talk,” Kai all but growls.
A startled laugh escapes me. “How do you figure that?”
“Oh please. You think I haven’t caught on to what you’re doing? The touching and the way you watch me, and like it isn’t bad enough you make breakfast with only your towel on, now you just constantly shove your abs in my face the whole day long.” The last few words are punctuated by him poking his finger in my stomach before he points it to my face accusingly. “You’re seducing me.”
“And you’re underestimating me,” I say. “I might have been doing all the things you just pointed out, but Kai?” He lifts his eyes to mine at the sound of his name on my lips. “I’m not seducing you.”
He frowns. “You aren’t?”
I shake my head. “I’m not.”
There’s a chance I’m mistaken. To err is human and all that jazz, but I’m as close to a hundred percent certain as possible that it’s disappointment I see in Kai’s gaze.
“There’s a caveat,” I add.
Kai squints his eyes at me. “Which is?”
“Yet,” I say.
He makes a face. “Oh good. Just what I need. Riddles.”
“I’m not seducing you,” I repeat. “Yet.”
