PLEASE! Please do not even think about plagiarizing any of my stories or other writers' stories on this site. It is dumb, pointless, and illegal, might I add. Honestly, I can't figure out why you would even think about doing it. There is no benefit. The people on this site, myself included, work extremely hard on their work and build up the courage to post their stories with the hope of receiving compliments, advice, and positive feedback. I can tell you how scary it is to post something on a site like this -- your personal, private work that possibly no one else even knows about. When you steal that from someone, it really hurts, and it could cause them to delete their work and possibly lose the courage to ever post again. If you really want to be a writer, but just can't seem to get attention for your stories, don't turn to stealing someone else's book. Keep working, practice, get better, and try again. Work on your grammar. Take a free online course. Read more books. But don't steal. It is not flattering. You will get caught.

Guinea Pig by Grand M reviews
"The next guy that walks through that door will be your test subject," Sofie said. "No ifs, ands, or buts." "Fine," I said through gritted teeth. In hindsight, I should have waited five more seconds before agreeing, because the moment Scott Maher walked into the class, he had become my guinea pig. I had to seduce the most powerful guy in the senior grade. No ifs, ands, or buts.

Leaning forward, she placed her hands on top of his, feeling his pulse skitter. "What I think," she said huskily, maintaining eye contact, "is that I can make you fall hard for me. We both know that its brewing. And like anything brewing, it's fueled by heat. And I plan on bringing the heat. I plan on making you hate that you hate me, and hate that you want me just the same."

It was a one-night-stand gone wrong. A heat-of-the-moment, unintended, disgusting slip-up that was all my fault. I swore that I wouldn't do it - even punched my best friend in the face to prove it. But I ruined everything: our friendship, her innocence, my life. It was supposed to get her out of my mind, but now I want her more than ever.

Well, sickening, really. But I can help you win her over. That is, if you're willing to get your hands a little dirty." Never make a deal with a snake. It never goes as planned.
