It was one of the scariest things I'd ever done: walking out on stage, opening my mouth, and singing for everyone at that wedding to hear. Because I'm awkward. I always mess things up, I forget my lyrics, and guaranteed, I'll do something weird. I'm a nerd, a lab assistant. Not a pop star.
But that night, I met someone who changed my life forever. Kale McCain. World-famous model, ladies' man, not a flaw to him. And the most unexpected thing happened - sparks flew. Everything about Kale is smooth: his attitude, his voice, his body. He is my polar opposite. But somehow, him, me, we work.
Then there was the video he made. Us together, me singing, him grinning like I was the sun, moon, and stars. And my simple life exploded. Suddenly, the world has a new celebrity couple to obsess about. We've barely started a relationship. Now there's all this pressure. When our once seemingly perfect life gets shaken, will we come out stronger, or will what everyone has been saying about us - that this is too quick, too serious, and that we're too young for this to be real - come to truth?
I'm Whitney Ford, and from the second Kale McCain walked into my life, I knew it would never be the same.
