TITLE: Forever Ever After
GENRE: YA urban fantasy/romance
Kay flopped down on her beach towel. The familiar excitement in her eyes set me on edge. I'd seen that look oh-so-many times whenever she spied a good-looking guy.
"Bryn, you have to see the new counselor who started today," she gushed. "Vali something or other. He's teaching archery."
On the other towel next to mine, Nikki sat up. "Is he cute?"
I shuddered and wrapped my arms tightly around my drawn up, jean-covered legs.
"Not so much cute as impossibly hot," Kay said.
"You mean hotter than Brian?" Nikki stripped off her hoodie to reveal her daring red tank top. Obviously not for our benefit. "So when do we get to meet him?"
"Great," I muttered, "another guy who thinks he's god's gift to females."
Kay seemed to ignore my comment, probably not expecting, of late, anything less. Nikki, of course, threw me a look of pure exasperation and disbelief. How I could disregard the poor guy before I'd even met him?
But I didn't have to meet him to know he'd be no different than the others. My experience with good-looking guys, especially the athletic sort, taught me a handsome face does nothing more than hide a dangerous nature lurking beneath.
