Magic Hands by Jennifer Laurens

Cort, the high school senior jock seems to have it all -- except a summer job. When he lands one doing women's nails, his eyes are opened to the catty, back-stabbing world of females. Girls he thought he knew and trusted turn out to shock and use him. He gets to know Rachel, an elusive girl the others gossip about, a girl with secrets. From her he learns there is more to life than weekend partying and social status, and one of the secrets she shares with him will change his life forever.

Cute, quick story about a jock who needs a job, likes an untouchable girl and tries to be cool.
He gets a job doing nails in a salon and because of his popularity he brings in more business than the little Asian women can handle.
The characters were fun.

He wanted to talk to her on the phone, hear that low, bass and guitar voice of hers. He wanted tomorrow to be here. He had a long night ahead of him, an even longer day with work. Until then, the poster wouldn't be enough.
He got up, sat down in front of his computer and clicked onto favorites. From there, he was just one click away from the New York City web cam.
