BLURB: Surviving Elite High fans, the wait is over! More romance, drama and mystery are unfolding at Elite High before the back-to-school bell has even rung!
Seventeen year old, blond-hair, blue-eyed and adorable Robbie Carroll, orphaned at a young age and mysteriously never adopted, has finally found his dream family. Nick Hawking and John Ames, now married, wealthy, and powerful, make Robbie their son, defying the young man’s past- one that Robbie himself has no memory of- that has scared all other prospective parents away. Now, Robbie has great parents and a hot brother, Nicky and beautiful sister, Lily, who take him into their midst and make him part of their tight circle of friends who all go to Elite High.
One of those friends is Tim Mercer, a gorgeous football player at Elite High. Tim’s dark looks and simmering eyes capture Robbie’s heart at first sight. But Robbie can’t be sure that Tim feels the same way, or even if he’s gay too. Moreover, even if Tim is available, there are some people around him who don’t want Robbie to get close to him, and will go to ANY lengths to keep him away. Why? What do they want with Tim? What is the secret that Tim is harboring? And who is that strange man in Robbie’s visions, who haunts his life and his dreams? Find out here!
Robbie looked away, no doubt his cheeks were bright red. The door swung open again and Allison stepped inside with two teens that appeared his age. The girl on Allison’s left was beautiful, too beautiful to even describe. Her long golden blonde hair hung over her shoulders and her eyes were like two crystal blue diamonds that shone brighter than the stars. She was the spitting image of her father, Nick, but what took his breath away was the guy standing on Allison’s right. He was a few inches taller than him and drop dead gorgeous. He had tanned skin that seemed to glow, the perfect body hidden behind his tight clothes, light brown hair that waved from side to side, and the purest hazel eyes that Robbie had ever seen. They were simply too mesmerizing to be real.
“There you are!” John approached them, placing an arm around them, and gently pushed them forward. “Robbie, this is Lily and Nicky.”
As the movie continued, however, Robbie’s back hurt and he wanted to shift his weight, but he couldn’t without disturbing Tim. Carefully, he shifted closer and his head rested on Tim’s biceps. Tim didn’t move or look his way. In fact, he looked calmer than ever. As Tim’s attention fell on him, he smiled like he was seeing the most beautiful thing in the world. Slowly, he leaned in and Robbie’s heart exploded, pounding violently against his chest. He shivered while his entire skin erupted in goose bumps. What was Tim doing? What was he thinking? The second their lips touched, a strange electrical feeling started at the tip of his tongue and spread all over his body. As Robbie kissed him back, he closed his eyes tight and saw the silhouette of a man, with a thin beard decorating his jaw, kissing him back and sticking his tongue inside his mouth. He broke free from Tim’s kiss and looked away.
“I’m sorry,” Tim whispered. “I shouldn’t have.”
No! He loved Tim’s kiss, but what he completely disliked was the man that he saw in his head. Who was he? Where had he seen him before? Clearly, it wasn’t Tim or anyone he knew.
