When I decide to run away with a sexy stranger and follow his band on tour all summer, I’m running away from more than home. I’m running away from the lies I’ve been telling my family, away from expectations, away from being perfect Gracie Gallagher.
Perfect Gracie would never. But this summer I’m going to be Fun Gracie. Exciting Gracie. Gracie who takes chances and gets a little reckless.
But now I’m telling a new kind of lie: Pretending to date a broody, tattooed Rockstar. Except my feelings aren’t fake and as I start to find myself, I risk losing more than just my inhibitions and my virginity. I’m risking my heart.
At the far side of the lot is a large silver van. Three figures stand near it, silhouetted by a street light. They appear to be talking, laughing even, and passing something between them. A puff of smoke billows out around one of the men’s heads and gets swept away, dissolving into the breeze.
I recognize the relaxed posture and the way Logan runs his hand through his hair.
“You sure about this?” Kyla asks, her voice higher than normal.
Wasn’t she the one convincing me to do this earlier? It’s okay, I can hype myself. Once a cheerleader, always a cheerleader, right? I’m only about to leave in a dark van from a seedy motel in the middle of the night with four men I don’t know.
Am I being kidnapped?
I reach for the handle, and if I thought my heart was racing before, it’s now a jackhammer against my ribs as I open the door and climb out of the car.
