Synopsis: A Girl, a Guy, a Tournament and a Challenge

The Girl: At a time when most girls obsess about homecoming and high school prom, Rainy Dey spent her senior year caring for her dying mother. So when her father drops her off at college to start her freshman year, his words of advice to his bookish daughter are to start acting like a young person and finally have some fun.

The Guy: College senior, Aaron Donavan, aka Mr. Hot-and-Knows-It, is President of the Clubhouse, a social club for the college’s most wealthy and popular guys. Aaron can have any girl on campus except the one who challenges and excites him the most—Rainy Dey.

The Tournament: Every year, the senior members of The Clubhouse engage in a golf-inspired tournament to see who can sleep with the most freshman girls. When Rainy finds out about the tournament, she believes Aaron’s only interest in her is to score points by taking her V-Card.

The Challenge: Can Aaron convince Rainy that his feelings for her are true and that she won’t be just another notch on his tournament scorecard?

Excerpt:

            I glanced over at the keg and saw that Aaron and his two groupies were still standing there drinking and laughing. The girls were practically throwing themselves at him and he seemed to be enjoying every minute of it. When he caught me looking at him and our eyes met, I saw a flash of something dark behind his rock star façade. Was it pain? Was he not really enjoying all of the attention from the beautiful blondes as it appeared? The look was only there for a moment and then it disappeared when the blonde at his left whispered something in his ear, which made him grin, but Aaron was still staring at me. The scene both disgusted and confused me. When he winked at me and gave me a sly smile, I felt sick to my stomach. Did he actually think he could flirt with me while two girls were hanging off him? I revolted.
            “Can we go into the other room?” I asked. “It’s getting stuffy in here.”
            “Sure.” Josh looked around. “Or do you want to go outside? You can see the stars in the backyard and it’s a beautiful night?’
            The stars sounded really good. The only problem was that we had to walk past Aaron and his girls to get out the back door.
            “Let’s go outside,” I said. “If you don’t mind leading the way.”
            “My pleasure,” Josh said as he placed his empty beer cup on the counter.
            I made sure that Josh was on the side that would be closest to Aaron as we passed. It didn't stop Aaron from staring at me as we walked by him. The blondes seemed oblivious to the attention he was giving me and I made sure I had the most vile and disgusted look on my face as we passed.  For a moment, he looked like I had slapped him but he quickly covered it up.
            When we got outside, Josh asked. “Do you know that guy?”
            “What guy?” I replied even though I knew exactly, who he meant.
            “The guy from The Clubhouse with the blondes hanging all over him.”
            I shrugged. “Sort of.”
            Josh looked very concerned. “Is there something going on between the two of you?”
            I gave a chuckle as if it was the most absurd question in the world. “Why would you ask that?”
            “Just the way he looked at you. Even though he had two girls on his arms, it was like he didn't even care. He was just staring at you.”
            I tried to minimize what Josh was saying. “We’re just partners in my art history class. We were assigned to work on a project together. That’s all.”
            “Are you sure?”
            “Of course,” I said but I wasn't sure at all.
