THE FRESHMAN: Ana Alves came to college for one reason–to be the first person in her immigrant family to earn a degree. She doesn’t want anything to derail her from her pre-med studies, especially a guy.
HER ROOMMATE: Nicki Payne is ready to party and she doesn’t waste any time hooking up with a guy in a frat house bathroom. Her motto: College is a time to be young, wild and free.
A GUY: Christopher Knight is the easy-going English major with a sexy smile and killer body who sits next to Ana in her Shakespeare class. Ana finds Christopher intriguing. She just doesn’t want to admit that she’s falling for him.
THE HOOKUP LIST: A list of freshman girls who are ready for action that’s circulated to the freshman guys via a weekly Listserv. When Nicki Payne is one of the first girls featured on The Hookup List, guys start knocking on her dorm door at all hours of the day and night looking to score…
But what happens when one of those guys is Christopher?
Dee Dee DeMarco’s brother, Alex, was funny, free-spirited and creative. He was also gay. Tormented by bullies, Alex killed himself on his 15th birthday.
Two years later, and now in college, Dee Dee believes getting a summer job working with a college-prep program for disadvantaged high school students is a stroke of luck, until she discovers that the guy assigned to co-lead her group is Cameron Connelly, a star basketball player and one of the bullies who tormented her brother to death. How can Dee Dee possibly spend the entire summer working so closely with one of the boys she blames for her brother’s death?
