The Trouble with Flying (Trouble Series Sweet Romance Book 1)

by Rochelle Morgan

Sarah doesn’t talk to strangers. Aiden won’t shut up. When they find themselves next to each other on a plane, unexpected sparks begin to fly …

Sarah doesn’t talk to strangers. It’s awkward, stressful, and there’s the uncontrollable blushing to worry about. When she boards a plane to fly home after an overseas holiday, she plans to stick her nose in a book and ignore everyone around her.

Aiden’s terrified of flying, and it’s his first time on a plane. If he can distract himself by talking non-stop for the entire flight, he will. Too bad for Sarah he’s sitting right next to her.

Against all Sarah’s expectations, she ends up enjoying Aiden’s company. They laugh, argue, concoct stories about other passengers, and accidentally hold hands during the turbulence. When the time comes to say goodbye, Sarah can’t help the crazy thought that she shouldn’t let Aiden go.

Then he kisses her.

And then he’s gone.

With her world turning upside down in more ways than one, Sarah has to make a decision: stick with the safe, predictable life that’s been mapped out for her, or find the courage to go after what she truly wants.

Kissing In Cars (The Kiss And Make Up Series Book 1)

by Sara Ney

WILL SHE, OR WON'T SHE...

Studious and sensible, the only thing Molly Wakefield wants to do is get through Senior Year and graduate. That, and hit the beach in her spare time. Maybe even read a book or two.

And things are going great -- until the day she catches Weston McGrath, handsome star athlete and scholar, spying on her in study hall. 

A tad creepy? Maybe. 

Thrilling? Absolutely.

Why? Because Weston McGrath is one guy no one can get close to.

Despite her best efforts to avoid him, Molly and Weston form an unlikely friendship. 

But it's a friendship that comes with a price - because Weston cannot seem to stop screwing up. 

Saying and doing all the wrong things. And who has time for an 18 year old "fixer-upper" that should know better?

Not Molly.
