Genre: YA romantic suspense
Most seventeen-year-old girls keep the normal type secrets: boy/girl crushes, whispers between best friends. But Calleigh has a secret that could cost her best friend her life.
A stalker assaulted Calleigh after first seeing her at a swim meet. She can’t tell anyone why she quit swimming; he promised he would kill her and her best friend if she did. But after looking over her shoulder for the past ten months, Calleigh finally think she’s safe—until her attacker shows up at her part-time job. The only person she can tell is Aaron, a former competitive swimmer. He kinda figures things out—never a good idea to approach a girl with pepper spray and not give her some kind of warning first.
Aaron wants Calleigh to start swimming again, so he comes up with a plan: pretend they’re dating and maybe the psycho will leave her alone. But as she starts falling for Aaron, she discovers they’re linked in a way she could never have imagined—a connection that could be deadly for Calleigh.
