Seeing David Huntsman after nine years is unexpected in more ways than one, especially after seconds before realizing who he is, the idea of kissing him crosses my mind. Eager to escape, I barely acknowledge his presence while making a run for it, my best friend Leslie laughing from behind me the whole way.
Only there’s nowhere to flee to, no steering clear of him at the college we both attend, and no dismissing the draw of what becomes my most forbidden desire.
Uptight is first in a serial of three at 82 pages, and will be followed up by Down Low and No Way Around .
