When Izzy shows up to theater class, the last person she expects to see is her sister’s ex-boyfriend Sebastian Rodgers. The whole school is buzzing about the reason for their  breakup, but Izzy’s more concerned he’s now dating–or is it fake-dating?–her theater rival. How can she possibly shine on stage when the limelight is focused entirely on them? She needs this play to get over the foster father who abused her and her new self-harm habit.

Sebastian might only be taking the class to graduate, but that doesn’t give him an excuse to bomb auditions. They’ve been paired together. He’s adamant that he doesn’t want to be in Grease. And, worst of all, he and Izzy butt heads every step of the way.

They’ll have to learn to work together if they want the audition to be a success, and that’s the last thing Sebastian wants. The more time they spend together the harder it is to ignore the sparks flying between them.

Sexual chemistry and hypnotic attraction are just a part of acting though. Izzy and Sebastian are only pretending. Right?


This story deals with heavy topics including self-harm, death, depression, and sexual abuse recovery.
