When I found out I was cast opposite my crush in the school musical, I thought it was a dream come true.

Nash Hastings is the type of guy a "good girl" like me should want. He's sweet, attentive, loyal, and best of all, he finally asked me on a date.

It's the perfect setup for an onstage romance to move offstage.

There's just one problem: Asher Park—the bad-boy rumored to have been involved in the mysterious disappearance of his ex last spring—is also in the play.

I know I shouldn't get involved with Asher. That he's possibly dangerous and the exact type of guy I always get burned by. But the more I get to know him, the less I want to believe the rumors.

Nash and Asher are sworn rivals and before I know it, I'm caught in the middle.

In most fairytales, the princess ends up with the prince. But this might not be that kind of fairytale.

One of my all-time favorite books!

I love this book so much and having it narrated by such talented voice actors was such a fun way to spend my day. (Yes…I listened to the whole thing in one day!)
Asher is such a hot, swoon-worthy, misunderstood bad-boy hero and I loved the way he teases Elyse. They are the perfect pair and it was a joy to experience their story again. I’ll definitely re-read and re-listen soon!
