The Love Interest
Caden is a Nice: The boy next door, sculpted to physical perfection. Dylan is a Bad: The brooding, dark-souled guy, and dangerously handsome. The girl they are competing for is important to the organization, and each boy will pursue her. Will she choose a Nice or the Bad?
Both Caden and Dylan are living in the outside world for the first time. They are well-trained and at the top of their games. They have to be - whoever the girl doesn't choose will die.
What the boys don't expect are feelings that are outside of their training. Feelings that could kill them both.
The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich is a gay YA thriller that is non-stop action from start to finish.

-In this subversive take on the quintessential YA love triangle, two guys--the clean-cut boy next door and the brooding bad boy--compete for a girl's affections. But nothing is as it seems: the guys are actually secret agents, trained to follow a script and fulfill specific romantic roles, and whoever doesn't win his target's love will be killed by his ruthless employer. ... Dietrich's debut is impressive, provocative, and a clever take on well-worn romantic tropes. ... while the thriller elements add tension and numerous surprises.---Publishers Weekly
-Caden is a spy. He's spent most of his life so far in an underground facility being groomed physically and mentally to become a Love Interest for someone influential. Now he's finally been chosen. Caden's been pegged as a Nice, the nerdy-boy-next-door type with perfect abs and ocean blue eyes. His competition is Dylan, a dark-souled Bad who's the dreamiest boy Caden's ever seen. Each of them must pursue Juliet, a girl destined to be the next great scientific mind. Whoever wins will share Juliet's secrets with the Love Interest Compound, which will then sell them to the highest bidder. Whoever loses dies. Caden doesn't intend to lose--but no one prepared him for the way Dyl makes him feel. ...fans of spy fiction and LGBTQ titles will find the novel worth reading.--- School Library Journal
