Seventeen-year-old Meg Flannigan isn’t very self-confident, but what girl would be after her sophomore-year boyfriend dumped her by making out with another girl in front of her locker?

Now a senior, Meg catches the eye of not one, but two gorgeous guys at school. Sounds good, right? What girl wouldn't want to be in Meg's shoes? One cute boy happens to be her boyfriend, and the other? Well, he wants to be. And Meg? She't torn between Ash, the boy she's been with for nearly five months, and Noah who is pretty irresistible.

But Meg is playing with fire. Pitting two boys against one another, even if she doesn't intend to, could end badly if she isn't careful. PERFECT FOR YOU is a teen romance from bestselling author Ashelyn Drake, where one girl will risk everything to find her perfect match.


I hop in the shower and sing this old sappy love song Mom likes to belt out while she’s vacuuming. I’ve always laughed at her for liking the song, but today it seems like the perfect thing to sing. I’m different today. I’m the girl Ash is in love with.
Still smiling, I go downstairs and grab some coffee, which is cold from sitting for hours. Mom and Dad left for work a long time ago. I toss a few ice cubes in my mug and decide to go for iced coffee. Why fight it? My cell rings while I’m pouring myself a bowl of cereal. A quick glance at the screen tells me it’s my best friend Grayson calling.
“Hey, Gray!” Yes, I’m Little Miss Sunshine this morning.
“Well, someone woke up on the right side of the bed. Should I ask if Ash was in that bed?”
“No! But I do have news.” My voice is so bubbly I barely recognize it. “Ash told me he loves me.”
“No way! He said the L-word?”
“When? Where? Tell me everything.”
I melt into the stool at the counter and tell her everything. The pool, the stars, the amazing make-out session, and of course Ash saying he loves me. When I finish she’s silent. “Gray? Did I lose you?” I pull the phone away from my ear and check the connection. Seems fine. “Gray?”
“I’m here.” Her voice is small, not happy at all. “Why aren’t you jumping up and down with me? You’re my best friend. You’re supposed to be almost as excited about this as I am.”
“Did you say it back?”
“What? Yes, of course. Would I be this happy if I didn’t?” Something’s up. “What’s going on?”
I can practically hear her shrug. “I don’t know. I guess I’m just confused. I mean, you’re hanging out with Noah behind Ash’s back. I kind of thought…Do you even know what you want?”
“You thought what? That I’m into Noah? That just because he started talking to me, I’d break up with Ash?”
“I don’t know. Maybe.”
How can she say that? “Noah and I are just friends. We both play tennis, we think alike…” I’m not sure how much to tell her without making her more suspicious.
“That’s all?” she presses. “I know you better, Meg.”
“Fine. So, maybe at first I was excited he was paying attention to me. I’ve liked him for a long time. But I love Ash. Noah talking to me doesn’t change that.”
“Okay. If you say that’s all it is, then I believe you.”
“Do you? Because it would really suck if my best friend didn’t trust me.”
“I said I believe you. What more do you want?”
