Kat Caruso wishes her brain had a return policy, or at least a complaint hotline. The defective organ is constantly distracted, terrible at statistics, and absolutely flooded with inappropriate thoughts about her boyfriend's gorgeous best friend, Alec... who just so happens to be her brand-new math tutor. Who knew nerds could be so hot?
Kat usually goes through tutors like she does boyfriends—both always seem to bail when they realize how hopeless she is. It's safer for her heart to keep everyone at arm's length. But Alec is always stepping just a little too close.
Alec Stone should not be fantasizing about Kat. She's adorable, unbelievably witty, and completely off-limits. He'd never stab his best friend in the back...
But when secrets are revealed, the lines of loyalty are blurred. To make it count, Alec must learn that messy human emotions can't be solved like a trigonometry function. And Kat has to trust that he may be the first guy to want her for who she is, and not in spite of it.
“Don’t you feel it? All that negative crap I’d been holding inside is gone because of you. And the good I’m filling it with? That’s you.”
Q. What are five of your favorite things about Alec? What is one of Kat’s favorite lines from him?
- He’s ambitious. Instead of letting something that happened to him as a kid weigh him down, he uses it to fuel his future.
- He’s got a pompadour
- He loves his Mama
- He treats Kat like she deserves
- In bed with Kat, he... actually, you just have to read the book for that one. ;)
One of Kat’s favorite lines of Alec’s: “Don’t you feel it? All that negative crap I’d been holding inside is gone because of you. And the good I’m filling it with? That’s you.”
“No rush. But by the time I leave tonight, you will give me a kiss, Alec Stone.”
Q. For those who are unfamiliar with Kat, how would you introduce her? What is Alec’s favorite thing about her?
Oh Kat. She’s funny and witty and feisty and I’m so proud of the journey she takes during this book.
While Alec loves Kat’s soft heart, I think his favorite thing about her is that she makes him laugh. She brightens his whole life.
