MeantToBeBrokenFrontCover-final-header

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for MEANT TO BE BROKEN by Brandy Woods Snow, releasing on July 2, 2018 from Filles Vertes PublishingBefore we get to the reveal, here's a note from Brandy

Hey there, YABC! I’m so excited to share with you the cover for my Southern YA contemporary romance MEANT TO BE BROKEN. I always had a pretty good idea of what I wanted in a cover for this book, and I have to give major props to my publisher Filles Vertes for beautifully capturing my ideas and bringing them to life. Growing up (and still living) in the Deep South, my settings all revolve around small town Southern places, and it was essential the cover art embrace the warmth and inviting aspect of that lifestyle. I couldn’t be happier with the finished product! I’m also thrilled to share with y’all the cinematic book trailer, planned and produced by the incomparable Brando Jones Films. Check it out below, enter the giveaway, and please follow/friend me on social media. I’m very active in the writing community and want to be just as accessible to my readers! I’m so happy you’re here. Please enjoy MEANT TO BE BROKEN!

~Brandy

About the Book

Rayne Davidson is perfectly happy fading into the background. Her mama’s antics garner enough attention in their small Southern town for the both of them, but when Rayne catches the eye of all-star QB, Preston Howard, she’s enamored with the possibilities. Too bad Preston doesn’t make her heart thump—but his brother does.

Gage Howard doesn’t mind the town’s stares, probably because he doesn’t get them. Growing up in his older brother’s shadow, Gage shrugs off the endless parade of girls Preston brings home—until Rayne.

But there are unwritten rules that shouldn’t be broken, like cheating on your boyfriend or betraying your brother. Rayne and Gage deny their growing attraction, neither willing to hurt Preston—until the town finds out.

They think overcoming the gossip will be the hardest obstacle.

They’re wrong.

Rayne’s mama has a secret, and its revelation could divide the town, the families, and the new couple.

Can love really exist if it’s all built on a lie?
