Blurb

When Silver Malone arrives at Rotelle Academy she isn't expecting the most popular boy in school to ask her for her name. She is no one. She's not particularly interesting and she's never the one to be singled out by someone like him. Unless it's to make fun of her. And yet she is. But why? And why on earth is he so interested in her? And now he's sticking by her the whole school year...Lakyn Cavelle.

Prologue

Silver Malone was always one of those girls. One that never really fit in anywhere. One that was always on the outer. But she was also a girl with a secret. A secret that she didn’t like to share too openly. A secret that her family kept relatively well. Until one day they decided they couldn’t deal with her and they sent her away. To Rotelle Academy. In Ravens Point. Miles away – close enough to visit but far enough to be someone else’s problem. And that is exactly what she became when she met him.

Lakyn Cavelle was one of those boys. He was the top of every ‘want to be him’ and ‘want to date him’ list. He had always been attractive and to know that he looked your way was something that set most girl’s hearts fluttering. Still he was never with the IN crowd. He was more of a drifter. He tended to drift to different cliques. But Lakyn also had missions. A new mission every week. To turn one girl who was lonely and desperate into the new IT girl at Rotelle. So when Silver Malone arrived at his school…she was his new mission.

Neither wanted to like the other. Neither needed to want the other. Silver was about as alluring as a bar of soap. And Lakyn was a little too pushy. She didn’t want to like him, she didn’t want to laugh at his jokes or to smile at him when he complimented her. Lakyn didn’t want to need to see her every day. He didn’t want to feel a need to make her laugh or smile just to catch his breath. He didn’t want to like her at all, she wasn’t his type.
Silver Malone seemed like a lost cause.
But Lakyn Cavelle wasn’t a quitter.


“You don’t want me, Lakyn. I’m damaged goods.”

“I like damaged. It means I can fix it.”

“What if you can’t fix this?”

“Will you let me try?”

“Yes.”

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.
