Blind Spot by Meghan Gardiner
Carrie and Tyler, bright young friends who have grown up together, are now being forced to face the facts that their friendship is changing. Tyler has developed a crush on Carrie and finds out one night at a party that Carrie has her eye on his cousin, Damien. As the evening goes on, Tyler reveals his feelings to both his cousin and Carrie. The aftermath of his admission leads to dire results as miscommunication and deception leads to actions which change everyone’s life.
