Perfectly Oblivious (The Perfect Series Book 1)

by Robin Daniels

Cameron Bates (Cam) could have almost any girl at Franklin High School…except for the one he wants. Unfortunately Bebe seems to be immune to his flirty charm and good looks, which means one of two things: a) she’s completely oblivious to how he feels, or b) she’s just not into him. If that’s the case, declaring his love would be disastrous for their friendship.

Bianca Barnes (Bebe) has a huge problem: the universe hates her. Every time she admits feelings for a boy, he ends up falling for her sweet, popular, and beautiful sister Beth. To avoid a broken heart, Bebe has sworn herself to secrecy. Nobody can know how she feels about Cam…Ever!

Neither person wants to confess their feelings, but the universe has its own plan. Out of the blue, Bebe is courted by a secret admirer. Cam has to step up his game and Bebe has to make a choice. Play it safe and accept the affections of her mystery man or challenge fate and take a chance on the boy she loves.

Emerson just made her dream come true as a professional cheerleader for her favorite pro football team. But even though the plus-size athlete is breaking down boundaries, she still has to contend with the massive rulebook. Carbs? Nope. Chocolate? Definitely not. Still, Emerson loves her curves, and she’ll rock the hell out of this job even if it kills her. Except for one mandate that is easier read than done…

No fraternizing with the players.

Problem one is Miller Quinton: Emerson’s first love, first sex, and the guy who still ignites her daydreams and R-rated fantasies. Thrown back together, Miller and Emerson feel the undeniable pull of passion again, even if the conflict that tore them apart seems insurmountable. Then there’s way-too-sexy Grant Sanchez. He has a serious reputation with the ladies, and when it comes to winning someone he wants, he doesn’t let anyone stand in his way.

Now Emerson is breaking every rule in the manual. But what she doesn’t know is that she’s part of a wicked little game—one that could steal both her dream and her heart.

Chasing Polaris

By: Autumn Doughton

"Trust me," he says.

"Trust is a lot to ask of someone you've just met."

"Okay, then take a chance on me."

Imogen Shaw is done with this life, or at least she's done pretending that everything is the same as it used to be. What was once so perfect and uncomplicated is ruined. Her dad, a person she thought could never disappoint her, turned out to be a liar and a fraud. All she cares about now is getting out of town and starting her new life in Boston. Love, she decides as she packs up her room and vows to put all of the hurt behind her, is just a delusion for suckers.

If anybody knows about things falling apart, it's Seth Cavanaugh. With an alcoholic mother and a sister stuck in prison, Seth's gotten used to taking care of himself. He figures he can handle anything life hurls at him because whenever people have let him down, music has always been there to carry him through. But these days even music feels like a stranger, and now Seth is in search of something more.

The setup is simple: A starry night, a scavenger hunt, one unlikely partnership, and two desperate hearts headed for each other on a collision course. In Chasing Polaris, Erica Cope and Autumn Doughton bring you another radiant story about misfits, catastrophic mistakes, and unforgettable discoveries. Simultaneously heart-wrenching and hilarious, Seth and Imogen's journey is one that can't be missed.

A girl.

A boy.

A fragile trust.

Everyone knows that true love is a joke and hearts are made to be broken. But what if Imogen and Seth took the chance anyway?

When Our Worlds Collide

by Lindsey Iler

Kennedy Conrad is everything he needs.

Graham Black has two rules in life. Play baseball, so he can get the hell out of Tennessee, and leave your shirt on when you drop your panties.

He’s a typical all-American pitcher with the world at his fingertips. His devilish good looks and charm help him crawl into the beds and hearts of the girls at his high school. With secrets no one knows, he has every intention of running away from his hometown the minute he graduates. Nothing can get in his way. Until poor choices collide him into Kennedy Conrad.

Graham Black is everything she wants.

Kennedy Conrad has her own set of rules. Dance with your whole heart, and make it through each day without being noticed.

She’s sweet and reserved, everything Graham’s not. After one fated night, she can’t stop him from noticing her anymore. She knows there’s a chance of heartache by letting him in. When the unthinkable happens to Kennedy, Graham realizes what he’s been fighting is what causes Kennedy to end up hurt.

Can their love survive one more thing that is meant to pull them apart?
