    Book Description
    Every girl carries the hope to find the one when she goes on a date.
    Many a time, the date is disappointing.
    Miraculously one day, the date is amazing and she thinks that she meets the perfect guy.
    But only time can tell what kind of man she is really getting.
    So what is she getting?
    Ethan Lancaster has everything. He has the sexy body of a demi-god, eyes of prince charming, admission to the top law school and endless supply of dollar bills. Better yet, he is also searching for a girlfriend.
    Dana Watson needs a boyfriend, regardless she actually wants one or not. The life as she knows is crumbling down and she is running out of time. Failing the college dating games miserably, Dana pushes her limits and finds Ethan. Both have their own secret agendas, but the spark between them is undeniable. Little do they know that secrets can get them burned.

    Chapter 1
    Everything told me that meeting someone from the internet was a bad idea. I had a feeling that I was going to regret this date tonight. But I was told that a life without regret couldn’t be a fulfilling one.
    Oh heck, I was already a sophomore. It’s about time to make some mistakes. Comparing to my friends, I already started too late. Plus, I was on a mission-a justified mission. I was looking for a boyfriend. And I needed one fast.
    I had never needed something so desperately. For 19 years I had been fine without a guy, until now. Well, life happened. It happened like a giant tornado. Usually around this time, a prince or a ridiculous sex god would fly out of nowhere and save the girl from her torment and kiss her brain out, right? Sadly, that didn’t happen to me. So I decided to step out of my comfort zone and look for someone who would be willing enough to be in a relationship with me. After quite a few terrible failed dates with real life acquaintances, I adventured online.   
    Thinking about my date this evening, I almost forgot his name. What was it again? Right, Ethan. His post on the Internet said: "Looking for a nice girl. Not into the bar scene. Prefer a smart, intelligent lady with adequate manners." I wasn't sure if I would fit his description but at least he didn't mention something crazy. Also, if he was honest about his information, we were both students and actually went to the same university. So I contacted him. We exchanged several emails and he asked me out on Saturday. He even sent me a small blurry photo of himself. I couldn't make out anything other than that he had hair.
    I paced around the parking lot behind my dorm. We said to meet here at 6:00pm. I checked my watch again. It was 6:02pm. My date was only two minutes late and I was already getting anxious. I took a deep breath and tried to put myself at ease. It was not working. My chest was still tight and my heart was beating against it. I was not in any good condition to meet a stranger from the Internet-so many scary stories came from there. Maybe I went too far this time. I paced around the parking lot again. I didn't know why I was so nervous. Maybe this guy wouldn't show up. Maybe I should go back to my dorm and hide in the corner.
    Just as I started headed toward the dorm, a shining black SUV finally pulled in the parking in lot. Was it Ethan? I slowed down and glimpsed at the SUV. The door opened and someone stepped down. I stopped completely in awe with just one glance. This guy was hot, capital HOT. He
