It's Live!! Cover Reveal: A Kiss In The Dark (Gina Ciocca), Plus Giveaway (US/Canada)

AKissInTheDarkSP

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for A Kiss In The Dark by Gina Ciocca, releasing March 2018, from Simon Pulse.

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Gina:

 

Hello, YABC! Four days after gracing the Internet with the cover of my January title, I'm back again to share the cover for my sophomore book with Simon Pulse, A KISS IN THE DARK! I'm definitely not the first author to say that writing my second book proved WAY more challenging than writing my first. Whipping this story into shape was a long, bumpy process, but I am happy to say that it finally came together in the exact swoon-worthy way that I wanted. And you guys? Pulse rewarded me with the MOST GORGEOUS FREAKING COVER. It represents one of my favorite scenes in the book, and that's about all I can say without being too spoilery. So, without further ado, feast your eyes upon it!  

 

~ Gina ~

About the Book
 
When the lights go out at a Georgia high school football game, Macy Atwood finds herself in the arms of a boy who kisses her senseless – but is gone by the time the lights come back on. All she knows is that there was something special – and oddly familiar – about her mystery kisser.
Noah Granger, Ridgedale’s resident bad boy and newest transfer student, has no problem taking credit for the kiss, but Macy can’t shake the feeling that he’s lying. Especially since a photograph of Macy and former star football player Joel Hargrove resurfaced online moments before the blackout, a not-so random reminder of how hard she fell for Joel last year. And how doing so ultimately sent her lifelong friendships with Meredith Kopala and Ben Collins up in literal smoke.
Soon junior year’s wounds begin to reopen as Macy realizes the events that unfolded are somehow tied to her mystery kisser. Discovering how means finally facing what really went wrong with Meredith, Ben, and Joel – and finding out what Noah is covering up.  
But the closer Macy gets to figuring it all out, the more she starts to worry that the boy who kissed her in the dark and the boy who is stealing her heart might be two very different people.

That cover makes me want to lock my daughter in a closet until she's at least 30. Wowza. The synopsis takes me back to my own high school days....and reminds me that I have to let my little girl be a teenager, too.
