In the first book of the Inevitable Series, Nandi is focused on recovering after an ACL injury, graduation, and training for an upcoming race, and in that order. There is no room for distractions, and certainly not a boyfriend.
Heero is Nandi’s friend and training partner, who has feelings for Nandi and is willing to be just a friend, to be close to her.
As hard as Nandi tries to keep Heero in the friend zone, her heart betrays her time and time again. Inevitably, Nothing turns into Something.
