DEDICATION


To everyone who has lost love and been lucky enough to find it again. To second chances and the epic romances that sweep us off our feet.





PROLOGUE


MALI – THEN


“R is for Rainer, handsome as can be, A is for asshole, one he can be, I is for idiot, yeah, you know it’s true, N is for nerdy, you’re a little of that too, E is for energetic, there’s no holding you back, R is for rebel, one day I’ll fight back.”

Rainer rolls his eyes and throws the candy he was sucking at my head. I duck with a laugh and reach down to the dirty wooden floor, picking it up and tossing it back at him. He catches it and throws it back into his mouth, after dusting it off.

“God, you’re sick!” I scrunch up my nose. “I could have done anything with my hands . . .”

I lift my fingers and wriggle them, and Rainer winks at me.

“No worse than I’ve had from you before, Emy.”

“Well, that’s a good point.”

He swings his legs and jumps down from my tree house, glancing back up at me when he’s done. I grin down at him, tossing a piece of candy at his head again. He catches and pockets it, then winks at me.

“Where are you going, Rai Rai?”

He shrugs. “To cause trouble. You coming?”

“Um, hell yes.”

I jump down from the tree house and run after him, bumping my shoulder into his when I reach his side.

Rainer and I have been best friends since we were twelve. I’m seventeen now, and he’s eighteen, but we’re still as close as we were the day we met. It was a typical boy-meets-girl kind of story—only instead of just ‘meeting’ we preformed an epic ass-kicking together. I was defending a young nerdy boy in our class from a pair of bullies who were pushing him around. Rainer saw what was happening and got involved, helping me out.

We became friends and that was that.
