The first time you meet someone, you make eye contact. You smile, say hello. Should be simple, if you’re anyone but me. The first time I met Dylan Reed, I found myself making eye contact with a different part of his body. You see, I’m very good at being shy, not to mention extremely well-versed in rambling nonsense and, unfortunately, rather highly skilled at making a fool of myself in front of a guy I’m attracted to.
At the time, I knew nothing about him and thought none of what I said would matter since I’d never speak to him again. Turns out, I was very wrong. He was the star wide receiver of the football team, one of the few players expected to make it into the NFL, and I ended up seeing him all over campus.I might have also propositioned him, run away from him, attacked him with a cooking utensil…and…uh, maybe I shouldn’t tell you all of it. It’s pretty normal stuff, things you’d expect…from me. Eventually, the time came when I couldn’t hide anymore—not that he’d have let me even if I tried.Before now, he never knew I was secretly watching him. Now that we see each other every day, he knows when I have a hard time looking away. It doesn’t help that I’m not the most subtle person in the world either.
He smiles at me and tells me he finds me fascinating because of my quirks. I can’t even tell him that I think my heart beats differently whenever he’s around.
He thinks we’re going to be best friends. I think I have a big thing for him, and the more I get to know him, the more I don’t care that I’m not allowed to be his friend, let alone fall for him.
The thing is, that’s exactly what I’m doing—what we’re doing, I think.
Falling.
Hard.

This book is for those of us who are a little shy with a little bit of weird mixed in (in the best possible way).

If you want to read about how a true college athlete should be, should act, should love… pick this book.
OMG! He was the most perfect YA/NA male character I ever found in a book from everything I’ve read so far. Absolutely incredible!

Basically, he looked and tasted better than pizza.

She was super funny with all her blabbering when she got nervous around him, with her quirks and everything. Adorable!

You break my brain sometimes—complete mush.

It’s a long story, but I didn’t get bored not even for a second. The plot is so well put together and the epilogue is one of the best ever. I loved how we got to know what was happening with all the other characters as well.
