Choices: (New Beginnings Book 1)

byMichelle Macqueen

When perfection became flawed… 

Michaela Matthews--future wife of Connecticut’s most eligible bachelor--lived the perfect life. 

An upcoming socialite, all she had to do was embrace the good fortune handed to her. But nothing was ever that simple. 

When she envisioned what her life would entail, she freaked and fled to her brother’s apartment in the city. Straight into the arms of his best friend, Jason Marks. 

Jason--a hardworking, bar owner--scraped together a life anyone would be proud of. Anyone, but Michaela’s family. Theirs was a match made in desperation. Kindling, just waiting to be set aflame. When the reality of their separate worlds neared, would it be enough to light the blaze?

Life in Reverse

by Beth Michele

"You know, I don't know you that well and already I don't really like you."

"Well, I guess we're even. Because I don't like you much either. And don't worry about the knowing me part...because you won't."

Vance and Ember didn't love each other at first sight. They didn't even like each other.

Ember, with her quirky ways, and Vance, and his angry, broody exterior. But there was more to both of them than met the eye. And when layers were peeled back, all the broken pieces exposed, they soon discovered a lot more than they ever bargained for...

And found a love they never expected.

A Study in Charlotte (Charlotte Holmes Novel)

byBrittany Cavallaro

The first book in a witty, suspenseful new trilogy about a brilliant new crime-solving duo: the teen descendants of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. This clever page-turner will appeal to fans of Maureen Johnson and Ally Carter.

Jamie Watson has always been intrigued by Charlotte Holmes; after all, their great-great-great-grandfathers are one of the most infamous pairs in history. But the Holmes family has always been odd, and Charlotte is no exception. She’s inherited Sherlock’s volatility and some of his vices—and when Jamie and Charlotte end up at the same Connecticut boarding school, Charlotte makes it clear she’s not looking for friends.

But when a student they both have a history with dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.

Opposite of Ordinary (Fareland Society Book 1)

byJessica Sorensen

One day ago my life was pretty perfect. But a lot can change in a day.

In one day, I went from being Ashlynn Wynterland, one of the most popular girls in school, to being the girl who spends lunchtime hiding out in Mr. Chester’s classroom and watching Maxon Harter, Clove Capperson, and their science obsessed friends mess around with experiments. All because Queeny Harlington thinks I made out with her crush.

Queeny Harlington is the queen of Fareland high. And up until a day ago, she was my best friend. Now she’s my worst enemy who’s threatening to tell the entire school all of my secrets.

Being a friendless, social outcast has its downsides. So, when Maxon and Clove invite me to hang out with them and their mad scientist friends, I accept his offer, even though they all seem to despise me. Which is fine. Sort of…

The truth is I’ve always thought Maxon is cute, in a weirdly unordinary way. And the more I get to know Maxon and Clove, the more I find myself liking them. 

But when Queeny decides to tell everyone my darkest secret of all, my new friendship doesn’t look like its going to survive. As my heart breaks, I make a choice that ends up shattering my world completely. In that dark moment, I learn who my real friends are and that nothing about Fareland is what it seems.

My Life as a Country Album (Book 1)

byLJ Evans

"Loving you was a race I was determined to win."

I belonged to you before I was born.  

I belonged to you when you first called me Cam and when I said my first word, your name, Jake.  

I belonged to you as we grew up sharing a treehouse, a yard, and the lake. I even belonged to you when our three-year age difference tried to pull us apart rather than put us together.

But, I was most especially yours when you kissed me and told me you weren't letting me go.

Except you did.

In the most painful way possible.

And now I’m wondering how to turn my life from a country love song without a happy ending into one that does…
