He told me to \'settle, girl.\' He asked if \'something was wrong with me?\' He said I was an ‘easy target.’ That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.

Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming. I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?
