Liam Davis is a serious journalist, and he’s good at it.
Or at least, he was. Until the chief of Scribe, the campus magazine, makes him give up his politics column to write for the party page —the party page that is problematic for two reasons: One, it threatens Liam’s chance of getting the traineeship with his apathetic father at his prestigious newspaper company, and two, he has no idea what it means to party, let alone how to capture this new audience’s attention!
But Liam Davis is no quitter. He’s determined to prove to his father, the chief, and above all himself that he can do it—and do it well.
Life doesn’t make it easy. Not when Freddy Krueger comes stalking out of the shadows to attack him. Luckily the Raven, the campus vigilante—the vigilante getting hate mail sent to Scribe’s opinions page—comes to his rescue.
Now, between finding the perfect angle for his party page columns and making friends (and perhaps something more?), Liam needs to find this mysterious Raven — not only to thank him, but to warn him to watch his back.
Fifteen minutes later, I was at Crazy Mocha Coffee. Hunter sat in the corner near the window, leaning back in his chair, leafing through a magazine.
Winding around the tables, I halted a few feet from him when he laughed. “And I thought I had a hangover!” He gestured to the seat across from him. “Like the look, man.”
I looked down at myself. What was he talking about—
Oh. The seams did look awfully large this side of the T-shirt. My hand flew to the back of my neck, where the tag scratched the palm of my hand.
“Wonderful.” I scanned for a restroom, but stopped at the counter. There, with their backs to me, were Shannon and Quinn. So much for thinking I’d never see them again.
Hunter cleared his throat. “Yep, guess who decided to tag along. There’s no damn getting rid of them.” He tossed the magazine onto the neighboring table, and it slid off the edge. After a few breaths, he shrugged. “Grab a seat, and I’ll get you coffee if you like.”
“Oh, uh, sure. Thanks.”
He winked and rolled off. “You betcha.”
“Guess I’ll just wait here with my T-shirt inside out until you get back, then.”
I’d meant the comment for myself, but halfway across the room Hunter chuckled. “Rock the look, man.”
“Shan,” Quinn’s voice sailed across the room, getting closer and closer. “I know it’s a pain in the ass, but I’m real thankful.”
“Keep buying me hot drinks, and I won’t throw you out on the street. Yet, anyway.” There came an oof, followed by a short laugh. “Hey, I’m carrying coffees here! Wait, isn’t that Liam?”
I straightened, wiping my palms against my thighs.
“Liam.” Quinn rested his hands on the table as he squeezed into a seat next to me. “Tell me you’re not here using Hunter as your angle.”
“I’m not here using Hunter as my angle.”
Shannon sat on my other side and handed over Quinn’s coffee. “Quit it, Quinn. He’s Travis’s date.”
“Wait.” Quinn frowned. “Date?”
