New Adult Contemporary Romance
By Rachel Curtis
Released January 17, 2014
I am not a slut, although I’ve been called one often enough. Yeah, I spent three months screwing one of my college professors, but I was crazy about the guy. Then he broke up with me.
I am not a bitch, although people like to say I am. I kept our relationship secret. I’m not responsible for telling the university administrators about it, but a lot of students still blame me for getting their favorite professor fired.
I am not a drama queen, although everyone thinks I am now. When I got a few nasty messages, I just deleted them. When I got the threat, I assumed it was someone being stupid. I still think that’s all it was. My parents worry, though, so they hired me a bodyguard. Now Jack follows me around, intimidating everyone who approaches me and looking obnoxiously hot.
This is what I am. I’m Chloe. I’m a twenty-year-old art history major. Kind of shy, although I pretend not to be. Stubborn enough to stay here for my senior year, even though everyone hates me.
And I’m stuck with Jack.
He calls me “Princess,” but I’m not a princess either.

AUTHOR’S TAKE ON CHLOE FROM KNOWING JACK
By Rachel Curtis
Chloe is a twenty-year-old college student. Her parents are rich, and she’s an only child, so a lot of people would call her spoiled. She’s really smart, and she’s always been a good girl—the kind who look forward to the first day of school, follow the rules, and try to please everyone. Only once in her past has she not been a good girl—when she fell for her college professor and had a three-month relationship with him. The consequences of her fall from grace have been severe. The professor was fired when their relationship came to light, and everyone at the school blames her for it. She’s gotten nasty messages and a death threat, which is why Jack has become her bodyguard.
Instead of doing what everyone thinks she should do and start up at another school where no one knows her, Chloe stays at her college and faces the way everyone hates her. She has her own reasons for staying, and those reasons may or may not be good. Even though she’s determined to stick it out, she isn’t used to being an outsider or being disliked, so it’s really hard for her to deal with the way the other students treat her. So she’s torn between stubbornness and vulnerability, weakness and strength.
Chloe is an art-history major, and she’s used to being surrounded by beautiful, elegant things. Jack is the opposite of what she’s used to, and she doesn’t like him at first. But she gradually starts to understand him better and fall for him, as she see the real person under the rough, bodyguard exterior. And he shows her that being perfect isn’t nearly as fulfilling as just being who she really is.
