The Stillness Before the Start

I’m Harper Reed. The valedictorian. The scholarship kid. The girl next door. The obsessive planner.

I have big dreams and secrets, but against my better judgment, Dylan Archer is the one I confide in. 

He’s the rich kid with the world at his fingertips. The sworn enemy of my best friend. The one who hides behind an arrogant smirk. The track star who wants to run away from reality.

We’re not in the same social circles or even capable of being friends, but when he asks for my help, I agree without considering the consequences. It’s a reckless decision that has the potential to start something neither one of us can stop.

Lumosthestars Review

"This story had everything I love: witty banter, romance, and a little bit of an enemies to lovers plotline. The dialogue, especially between Dylan and Harper, was a shining star in this narrative--it was funny but it also illustrated the chemistry between the two."
