Seraphina…that’s a big name.
The first time I laid eyes on Julien Umbra, he made me cry.
That makes him sound mean, but grumpy would be more of an apt description. Besides, I always cry when I’m drunk.
Hate is a strong, strong word.
I’m back for another semester at Savage U, nursing a bruised heart and shattered ego. That’s what happens when your ex cheats and everyone knows.
Worse than that, the girl my ex told me not to worry about and then banged is vying for the one thing I want: drum captain of the marching band.
Pretend all you want to.
I have a chance to get what I want, there’s just one little thing I have to do: fake date the grumpy guy in the hoodie. The one who sits alone at the front of the class and growls at anyone who speaks to him.
But Julien doesn’t growl at me, and to my surprise, he agrees to be my fake boyfriend.
Breaking the already broken…
Julien is scarred in more ways than one, but he’s not as broken as he thinks he is. There’s something about him that draws me in.
I like him, and the longer we do this, it starts to feel like it’s not for show.
All of this is fleeting.
I have to remember this is fake.
When I get what I want, Julien and I will walk away from each other.
The song will end.
But what if all I want is Julien?
