Bad Intentions by Nacole Stayton – Novel Summary
Adaley Knight is a pastor’s daughter and she used to be a gymnast. When she could no longer be a gymnast, she got depressed but then later on decided to change. She moved to another town with bad intentions.
On her first week there, she got wasted and danced on top of tables. After that, she started falling in love with Ryle Benson. Ryle could be labeled as the hottest guy in the campus. He’s distant and usually doesn’t talk much. Still, they managed to fall in love. They sort of broke up when Ryle found a prescription drug in Adaley’s bed, he accused her of being a drug user when it’s just a drug for her spine. He didn’t contact her and avoided her all day, so Adaley went to his apartment just to find Naomi inside wearing Ryle’s shirt. The truth was the washing machine broke so Naomi washed her clothes at Ryle’s place. They are both adoptive children of Meredith & Thomas Benson. Adaley was angry at what she saw. She decided to go back home. When she came home, she was welcomed by her parents and ex boyfriend Mark who she dumped when she left town. Her roommate Zoe got worried and followed her to her town. Later that night they went to the bar with Mark and his friends. She lost her virginity to Mark that night.
After that they went back to the university and Ryle apologized for accusing her as a drug user by taking her to their cozy secret apartment. They stayed there, talked and had sex until they decided to go back to the university. On their way back it was raining and they decided to dance in the rain for a while. When they got back to the car, another car was coming. Ryle used his body to protect Adaley, but sadly – he died.
