The Fullback and His Best Friend by Anne-Marie Meyer & Maggie Dallen
He was my best friend until...he kissed me.
To say that I'm excited to have my best friend come live with me is an understatement. Even though he's not my boyfriend and I would never look at him as such, I'm excited that with him around, I'm no longer the ninth wheel.
Plus, having a movie buddy to watch my favorite movie Dirty Dancing is a plus. Even if he rolls his eyes everytime we watch it.
I have one semester of freedom until my parents force me to persure a relationship with a girl who is beneficial to our family. Sure, I come from a rich family with loads of connections, but I'm trapped. I want to love who I want to love and not who my parents want me to marry.
I want to love Olivia.
But I'll settle for being her friend and spending the rest of my senior year feeling free.
And I was fine, until my feeligs became to hard to ignore.
She's the one girl who can make me smile. The one girl who understands me. And the one girl who doesn't use me for my family.
I just hope that when this is all over, I haven't lost my best friend in the process.
If you love best friends to lovers stories with carefree female leads and strong heros, you'll love The Fullback and his Best Friend. The FINAL installment of The Ballerina Academy series.

Moving North by Tudor Robins
Ever since her mom died, Perry’s been keeping up a frantic pace trying to keep her twenty-five-year-old horse healthy, her stepfather and her four-year-old brother happy, and her memories of her mom alive.
That frantic pace is the problem, though. The big, busy city is wearing everybody down, including Perry.
She was willing to give up her boyfriend, and even her best friend, to focus on her family, Lief and Justin, and her horse, North, but despite all Perry's efforts, Justin's sad and stressed, Lief's vulnerable, and North's health is in jeopardy.
When Perry inherits a house in the quiet, friendly town of Perryside, a move could be just what they all need … if only Perry wasn’t terrified of leaving the only place she’s ever known her mother.
Will Perry’s memories survive a move to Perryside? But without the move, will her family survive?
Enjoy a brand-new series from Tudor Robins, author of the much-loved Island and Stonegate series.
Curvy Girls Can't Dance by Kelsie Stelting
The strongest bodybuilder in Emerson isn’t a match for my focus.
Emerson Dance is one of the most prestigious dance companies in the country. And I got kicked off the team right before nationals because my curves don’t “fit.” Not their idea of a perfect dancer's body and definitely not their costume.
I’m going to enter the competition on my own and show them that every body is a dancer’s body. It will mean practicing in the gym with the bodybuilders, but I can shove my nerves - and my attraction to Carter McCormac – aside long enough to win.
My reputation, and my future, depend on it.
If you love girls who buck the rules and guys strong enough to lift them up, you’ll love Curvy Girls Can’t Dance, a standalone romance in The Curvy Girl Club! Grab your copy and fall in love today!
My High School Quarterback Boyfriend by Kylie Key
Falling for the boy next door?
No. Definitely not.
There’s no time to enjoy senior year
With training for track and keeping top grades,
the pressure to succeed is constant
Especially when you live in the shadow of your older sister
who is currently studying at Harvard.
When Dean joins the track team, I find myself losing focus
He’s my next door neighbor and childhood friend
But since we started high school,
Dean has left me behind
He’s Mr Popularity, the school’s star quarterback
And he’s dating his way through the cheer squad
But now he wants to train with me
He wants to be project partners
He wants to go out for ice cream
And I find myself kind of falling for him
Which is crazy, isn’t it…
Because there’s no room for love in my life
And certainly not with the boy next door…
Making Music with the Country Star by Jen Brady
She avoids the spotlight at all costs.
His career depends on it.
Can they find a way to be together?
I’m the last person you’d expect to make friends with a celebrity. I don’t have friends my age and spend my free time volunteering at the hospital. Yet, here we are, doing couples yoga and sharing things with each other we’ve never told another soul.
Now he’s challenged me to step out of my comfort zone, to dip one toe into his amazing world full of beautiful music and passionate people. But his life also comes with paparazzi and crazed fans around every corner.
Me, chance the spotlight? I can’t even make small talk with strangers.
I’ve met the girl of my dreams. She’s beautiful, sweet, and talented. I’m not sure what intrigues me more—how pretty she looks when she blushes or the fact that she has no idea who I am.
I love that she’s not impressed by my chart-topping status. I know she likes me for me. The problem is, she doesn’t want anything to do with my celebrity lifestyle.
I’d love to slow down and live life as a “normal” teenager for once. But taking time off kills careers, and I don’t know if mine could recover. Is there a way to be with her without leaving the public eye?
Making Music with the Country Star is a fun celebrity YA sweet romance. If you like quirky characters, sweet kisses, and happily ever afters, you’ll love The March Sisters Sweet Romance series.
