Excerpt:

It would be so easy to jump into his arms and drag him to bed, close my eyes, and let that physical part of me take over. I still wanted him so bad, but I wasn’t supposed to do that anymore. I wasn’t supposed to use sex to mask my problems. Damn therapy.
“You could stay in here,” he said.
“I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
“I’ve really screwed things up, haven’t I?” Troy stared at the ground.
“Troy, please don’t do this.”
“What?” He looked up.
“Make me feel sorry for you.”
“At least I’d know you felt something for me.”
“I do feel something for you.” I sat down. “I love you.”
He knelt in front of me, taking my hands. I watched as he brought them to his lips. “I love you, too.”
I pulled my hands out of his grip.
“I can’t do this. Not now. I know I said I was okay, but I don’t know. Being here and remembering all the time we spent together in this room. You made me feel safe. I felt so connected to you. I thought you’d never hurt me, but I am hurt and sad and scared we’ll never be able to get back what we had. I’m different, but you’re different now, too.”
“Please don’t say that.”
“I don’t see how—” I began.
“No, we can fix this. I can fix it.” Troy’s tone showed his desperation. “Just, don’t say there’s no chance.”
“It’s how I feel. Even if we were to get back together again, it’s not going to be the same.”
Troy stood up. He had a defeated little boy look like someone stole his favorite toy, but he turned to me and made one more plea. “What can I do?”
“Give me some time, okay?” I stood up and headed to the door.
I didn’t wait to hear his response. I closed the door behind me. As I headed to the living room, I grabbed a blanket from the hall closet and wrapped myself in it. I curled up into the corner of the coach and cried myself to sleep.

BLURB:

London Reed is on the hunt for a place to live before the start of her second year in college. Either she is successful and can enjoy her student life without the pressure of her parents breathing down her neck, or she goes back home and clashes with her parents.

Because London doesn’t have a filter.

”You’re a weird one, aren’t you?”

She basically tells it as she sees it. So when she meets the hunky and scarred guy who lives in apartment 2B, the last apartment on her exhausting list, she’s sure to bring some crazy in his life.

But he’s determined to not take a girl for a roommate.

“I have nothing against you, but I don’t see this working for me.”

London doesn’t give up that easily and makes a deal with him. If she makes it for two months, she’s in for the whole year. If not, then she leaves to never contact him again.

Easy, right? Not so much.

“You should have told me that you wanted me to be all over you.”

When a guy and a girl live under the same roof, it’s bound to complicate things. Between banters, heady games of seduction, innuendos and insecurities revealed, the life in apartment 2B isn’t simple, and a few slips in their relationship doesn’t help the matter.

“You’re driving me completely nuts. That’s my fucking problem.”
