I stormed up the stairs and headed straight to my old roomโ€”his room. But

when I got to the top of the stairwell, I swallowed the words Iโ€™d been prepared to

unleash. The unexpected sight of Caleb doing pull-ups met my eyes. He used a bar

affixed to the top of the door to lift himself up. He wore a T-shirt that rode up each

time he rose. His hard abs were now staring me in the face, ripples of carved muscle.

He had black wrist wraps on. Heโ€™d turned my old room into a home gym.

He was a bastardโ€”but there was no denying he was beautiful.

I cleared my throat. โ€œDid my father give you permission to put that thing in

the doorway?โ€

The house shook as he landed on his feet. โ€œWell, hello, Teagan. Amazing how

easy it is to walk up the stairs, isnโ€™t it? He grabbed a towel and wiped the sweat off

his forehead. โ€œAnd yes, in fact, your father did give me permission to put the bar up.โ€

I came out with it. โ€œYou think you know it all, donโ€™t you? Who are you?โ€

He glared at me. โ€œWho am I? Well, nice of you to ask, Teagan.โ€ He threw his

towel down on the desk. โ€œYouโ€™ve had no interest in getting to know me from the

moment I walked in the door. But since you finally did inquireโ€ฆ Hi, Iโ€™m Caleb Yates.

Happy to be here. I have no clue what Iโ€™m doing with my life and have a somewhat

crappy family situation back in England. So, I came to a strange country for the first

time to get away for a bit. I miss my mum, but the good news is, Iโ€™ve just moved into a house where everyone is cordialโ€”except for the cranky

girl in the basement.

Wow.

โ€œThatโ€™s a bit harsh, donโ€™t you think?โ€

He came closer, and the smell of his cologne mixed with sweat

wasโ€ฆinteresting. Couldnโ€™t say it was a bad thing, thatโ€™s for sure.

โ€œYou didnโ€™t have to write me a snooty email, Teagan. You can come talk to me

if I do something to piss you off. If you write me emails like that when Iโ€™m right

upstairs, thatโ€™s the kind of response youโ€™re going to get, each and every time.โ€

He had a point. The email was a bit cowardly of me. Yet Iโ€™d still managed to

convince myself it was a good idea. He was right. Anything I needed to say to him, I

should be able to say to his face. Quite honestly, the benefit of that was also his

faceโ€”getting to look at it, I mean. It turned out, looking at him was a lot more fun

than avoiding eye contact had been. Thank goodness he canโ€™t read my mind right

now.

Seeing that he actually seemed angry as opposed to amused caused me to

change my tuneโ€”that and perhaps his scent going straight to my head as it followed

my mind right into the gutter.

He held out his hand. โ€œGive it to me.โ€

I looked down at my empty hands. โ€œGive you what?โ€

โ€œThe stick in your arse. Take it out and give it to me.โ€

I crinkled my forehead. โ€œWhat?โ€

He wiggled his fingers. โ€œCome on. Hand it over.โ€

Genuinely curious as to where he was going with this, I motioned with my

hand, pretending to remove the imaginary stick from my derriere and throwing it

over to him.

He pretended to catch it, then let it weigh him down. โ€œItโ€™s bigger than I

thought.โ€ Looking around he said, โ€œIโ€™m gonna find a space for it. Hang on.โ€

I laughed, against my better judgment. He shoved the imaginary stick under

his bed and wiped fake dust off his hands.

โ€œNow that thatโ€™s out of the way, why donโ€™t we start fresh?โ€

the day he came back

SYNOPSIS

The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start.

On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude in a campus bathroom.

(The ladiesโ€™ room was out of order. So, I used the menโ€™s room. Donโ€™t judge.)

I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting to rent a room in my parentsโ€™ house was allergic to our cat.

So, the spare room went to someone else: Calebโ€”the British guy from the menโ€™s room.

And so it beganโ€ฆmy love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate-love in that order?

ย 

The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons.

Sometimes Iโ€™d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.

Heโ€™d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.

That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.

So frustrating.

Andโ€ฆ

Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.

And hot.

ย 

He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year.

Too bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between usโ€”for so many reasons.

I definitely couldn’t fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one year.
