Second Best

Can you really love two people at once?

Tess appreciates being alone. Being alone is easy. After aging out of foster care, she’s ready to start a new life across the country at the University of Rhode Island. After URI’s most eligible bachelor, Jake, insists on getting to know her, there’s no way she’ll be able to fly under the radar.

When Tess starts dating Brayden, Jake’s best friend with a mysterious illness, she believes everything has worked out perfectly. However, as much as she tries to deny it, Jake and Tess can’t avoid their underlying feelings for each other, and stolen moments together are riding a dangerous line.

Will she be able to keep up the fa├žade for Brayden, or will she ruin the only real friendships she’s ever known?
