Complexity (Destiny #2.5)
by Cindy Ray Hale
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Young Adult
Olivia Clark likes to tell herself sheâ€™s too focused on following all the rules to pay any attention to Hudson Brown, the wealthy longboarder who lives up the hill. But the more he comes around, the harder it becomes to resist his charm. Then when a terrifying crisis strikes her neighbor Liliana Watson, Olivia is faced with one of the most difficult decisions sheâ€™s ever had to make. When the lines between right and wrong begin to weave into a pattern of complexity, will Olivia have the courage to follow her heart and still make the most selfless choice of all?

Liliana continued on her rant about her mom's latest control tactics, but I wasn't listening anymore. Across the room, a boy with messy blond hair was casually leaning against the wall of the cafeteria, gripping the straps of his backpack and talking to the high school chemistry teacher. He caught me staring at him and a corner of his mouth quirked up. I turned away, cheeks flaming.
â€œWhoâ€™s that?â€� Sara asked.
â€œI have no idea,â€� I said. â€œHe looks like he loves himself too much.â€�
â€œHe kind of does, doesnâ€™t he?â€� Sara clicked shut the lid of her lunchbox. â€œDonâ€™t look, but heâ€™s totally checking you out right now.â€�
And of course I looked. He was still there, staring with that smile. Great. Yet another guy Iâ€™d probably have to reject.
â€œNot that heâ€™d have a chance with the untouchable Olivia Clark,â€� Liam Goshen said from a few seats down.
I pretended I didnâ€™t hear him and turned to Liliana to change the subject. â€œDo you think Iâ€™ve mastered my audition piece enough to get better than fourth chair this year?â€� Talking about my flutist abilities was better than listening to Liam go off on me for rejecting him last spring. Him and about five other guys. It wasnâ€™t like he wasnâ€™t hot. He totally was. But I didnâ€™t date.
â€œOlivia, all youâ€™ve done all summer is play your flute. Iâ€™m pretty sure youâ€™re first chair material now,â€� Liliana assured me.
â€œYou think so?â€�
I smiled, and as I did, my eyes slid of their own accord to where the blond boy was still standing. He met my eye again and turned and slipped from the room.
