Today's feature is yet another fictional version of me. One of them can be found in Imperfect Chemistry by Mary Frame and another in The Unforgettables by G.L. Thomas. There is obviously an ironic theme going on here because I'm not generally a fan of contemporary yet all three are... contemporary.
Let's just say this: I am a blind bat in the romance department. I will continue to be suspicious of the intentions of the unfortunate guy who dares to hope for more with me. I also scare most guys away, but I've been told I look somewhat intimidating. Good. Maybe I'll stop being hit on.

Desi Lee knows how carburetors work. She learned CPR at the age of five. As a high school senior, she has never missed a day of school and has never had a B in her entire life. She's for sure going to Stanford. But—she’s never had a boyfriend. In fact, she’s a disaster in romance, a clumsy, stammering humiliation-magnet whose botched attempts at flirting have become legendary with her friends. So when the hottest human specimen to have ever lived walks into her life one day, Desi decides to tackle her flirting failures with the same zest she’s applied to everything else in her life. She finds her answer in the Korean dramas her father has been obsessively watching for years—where the hapless heroine always seems to end up in the arms of her true love by episode ten. It's a simple formula, and Desi is a quick study. Armed with her “K Drama Rules for True Love,” Desi goes after the moody, elusive artist Luca Drakos—and boat rescues, love triangles, and fake car crashes ensue. But when the fun and games turn to true feels, Desi finds out that real love is about way more than just drama.
