Don’t fall for your roommate…especially when he’s your best friend.
Cooper Bennett is my best friend.
That’s all he is and all he ever will be.
Nothing will change that.
Accidentally seeing him naked? Please. So not a big deal.
Having less-than-tame thoughts? I mean, have you seen this guy? Who could blame me?
Kissing him? It was a one-time mistake, and it will not be repeated.
Falling into bed with him? Uh-oh…
It’s fine. We’re fine.
We’re Caroline and Cooper. Best friends until the end. Nothing has ever come our way that we couldn’t survive together.
Surely, we can handle this too…
She’s out on the dance floor…and she’s not alone.
There’s a guy with his hand on her waist in a way that seems proper but somehow feels way too fucking intimate all at the same time.
He dips his head toward her and says something in her ear, and she tosses her head back, laughing at whatever he says.
A surge of anger rushes through me seeing her laugh like that.
I hate myself for it instantly.
I don’t understand what my problem is. She’s my best friend. That’s it.
I do not and never have harbored feelings for her, because that one week during the summer between our freshman and sophomore year of high school doesn’t count.
Am I really going to let one absurd and not-likely-to-ever-happen-again incident like her seeing me naked change our entire friendship?
That’d be dumb.
But…I did like the way she looked at me.
And I can’t stop thinking about how much I want her to look at me like that again.
Not just some girl either.
I want my best friend to look at me like she wants me.
I think I want her.
