The Chesterboro University Novels
Cord Spellman might be everyone’s Prince Charming, but I’m only his fake Cinderella.
Since my dad died and my mom bailed, I’ve been living in a trailer park, barely making ends meet. I can take care of myself, as demonstrated by my acceptances to a handful of elite music graduate programs. So what if funding my success has meant sacrificing my college social life?
That’s why Cord’s offer is perfect. The hot hockey star has playoffs coming up. He doesn’t have time for girls, especially his cheating ex who’s determined to get back together with him. He needs to focus on his game, so he asks me to divert the attention—as his fake girlfriend.
I pretend to be in love with him and get a taste of the party life before graduation. Cord is free to concentrate on hockey. But when the line blurs between what’s real and what’s fake, can we create our own fairy tale ending?
I’m no Romeo, but Shea Carmichael is so off-limits, her name might as well be Juliet.
Shea’s my best friend’s sister… and the only girl I’ve ever wanted. She’s always had a boyfriend, though, so I’ve been able to keep my distance. Now she’s single. As her friend, she asks me to help her navigate our campus dating scene. Of course, I agree. I promised her brother I’d keep her safe—and keep my hands to myself. The only problem? The more time I spend with her, the harder it is to deny how I feel.
Except I’m holding my life together by a thread. I need to rehabilitate my hockey career after spending a year recovering from concussions, and my family is in financial ruin. I shouldn’t be anywhere near Shea with my mess, but what’s between us is real and the attraction is too hard to resist.
When everything starts to unravel, though, can we find a way to keep our forbidden romance from ending in tragedy?
