After a series of bad choices rocked his world, seventeen-year-old Preston charts a new course as far from his ladies' man ways as he can get. He distances himself from the dating scene and avoids his party-loving friends-the things that once dominated his life. Then he meets Maggie, the new girl in town, the first day of their junior year. She's beautiful on the inside and out, knows nothing of his past, and he can't get her out of his mind.

When a disastrous first date leaves her skeptical about the guys at Madison High, Maggie slows down her pursuit of a guy to trust with her white-wedding-dress future. She wants a boyfriend, sure, but he'd have to be nothing like the jerk who forced her first kiss. Someone more like Preston, who's been nothing but sweet and helpful, not to mention, easy on the eyes. But he is so out of her league.

Can Maggie afford to let her guard down around the charming Preston? Will Preston's past jeopardize his chances with the one girl who could anchor his future?
