I stormed up the stairs and headed straight to my old room—his
room. But

when I got to the top of the stairwell, I swallowed the words I’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. He’d turned my old room into a
home gym.

He was a bastard—but there was no denying he was beautiful.

I cleared my throat. “Did my father give you permission to put
that thing in

the doorway?”

The house shook as he landed on his feet. “Well, hello, Teagan.
Amazing how

easy it is to walk up the stairs, isn’t it? He grabbed a towel and
wiped the sweat off

his forehead. “And yes, in fact, your father did give me permission
to put the bar up.”

I came out with it. “You think you know it all, don’t you? Who are

He glared at me. “Who am I? Well, nice of you to ask, Teagan.” He
threw his

towel down on the desk. “You’ve had no interest in getting to
know me from the

moment I walked in the door. But since you finally did inquire…
Hi, I’m Caleb Yates.

Happy to be here. I have no clue what I’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,
I’ve just moved into


“That’s a bit harsh, don’t you think?”

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

was…interesting. Couldn’t say it was a bad thing, that’s for sure.

“You didn’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 I’m right

upstairs, that’s the kind of response you’re going to get, each and
every time.”

He had a point. The email was a bit cowardly of me. Yet I’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

face—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 can’t
read my mind right


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

change my tune—that and perhaps his scent going straight to my
head as it followed

my mind right into the gutter.

He held out his hand. “Give it to me.”

I looked down at my empty hands. “Give you what?”

“The stick in your arse. Take it out and give it to me.”

I crinkled my forehead. “What?”

He wiggled his fingers. “Come on. Hand it over.”

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. “It’s bigger
than I

thought.” Looking around he said, “I’m gonna find a space for it.
Hang on.”

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

his bed and wiped fake dust off his hands.

“Now that that’s out of the way, why don’t we start

the day he came back


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

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

(The ladies’ room was out of order. So, I used the men’s room.
Don’t judge.)

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

So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb—the British
guy from the men’s room.

And so it began…my love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it
hate-love in that order?


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

Sometimes I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.

He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.

That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.

So frustrating.


Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.

And hot.


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

TToo bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could
happen between us—for so many reasons.

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