New Beginnings

By Michelle Macqueen

Six friends. Three love stories. Countless complications.

Get all three books together for the first time. 

Each book is a standalone. 

Choices:

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?

Senior Week Fling: (Summer Love Book 1)

byMaggie Dallen

Adam is Eve's best friend, everyone knows that. But when the fake kisses turn real, even Eve isn't sure if she can tell the truth from the lies. Are they pretending to be in love or is it a lie to say they're still just friends?

The nightmare of high school is finally behind Eve...almost. Only one thing remains before she can finally shed high school hassles: Senior Week, where everyone heads to the Jersey Shore for one last week of partying and fun with friends and frenemies. And ex-boyfriends? He's the one person she thought she'd left behind. He's the guy who broke her heart and left her best friend to pick up the pieces. 

Thank goodness her great pal Adam is willing to come to her rescue all over again. In a dramatic display meant to save her from public humiliation, Adam kisses Eve, telling their classmates they’ve fallen in love and are now a couple. After all, how hard could it be to fake a relationship for one week?

Playing lovers is all fun and games in a beach paradise as fake as their relationship. Until very real—and unwelcome—emotions start to emerge. Now Adam and Eve are battling not only their exes and rivals, but their own jealousies and fears. Can best friends really become lovers? Or is this all just a Senior Week fling?

The Wrong Bachelor

byAlexandra Moody

Bachelor: A desirable potential boyfriend. AKA not Cole Kingston.

Seventeen-year-old Madison (Madi) Matthews wants nothing to do with the dating competition her school is holding to raise money for charity. She's never been interested in chasing a guy before and she certainly isn't interested in competing for one in front of the whole school.

But, when Madi is voted as one of the ten "lucky" contestants, she's given no choice but to vie for the heart of Lincoln High's most eligible bachelor. The problem is, they've chosen the wrong guy.

Cole Kingston might be good looking, great with a football and practically the king of Lincoln High, but he's also cocky, arrogant, a serial flirt and Madi's sworn enemy.

Will she be able to resist him though when the competition heats up and he turns his charms on her?

Rule #1: You Can't Date the Coach's Daughter 

(The Rules of Love)

by Anne-Marie Meyer

There are two types of people in high school: the ones that you can date and the ones you can’t. Unfortunately for me, I’m the latter. Even though I’m around hot football players every afternoon, they are not allowed to date me. If they even come close to flirting, my dad, Coach “The Boss” Davis, makes them run laps around the field until they puke. 

Nothing scares off a boy more than the threat of physical pain.

Not only has he forbidden me to date anyone at all, he’s even made me the football team’s water girl so that he can keep tabs on me. Apparently, over protective dad is a fabulous guy deterrent. Outdoor shops should find a way to bottle it and sell it. They’d make a killing.

What Dad doesn’t know is that I spend every last second of those two blissful hours of practice in the scorching California heat, staring at Tyson Blake. He is the epitome of perfection in a six-foot-two, incredibly toned, smells-good-even-when-he-sweats, senior body. And when he smiles, angels sing. Literally.

And Dad hates him.

It feels a bit cliche to say I fell for the one guy that would send Dad’s already high blood pressure over the the top. But it’s true. There’s something about Tyson. Something he’s trying to hide. But I can see through his cocky persona and I know there’s something more.

It Was Always You (Ridgewater High Romance Book 3)

byJudy Corry

What's the first rule when pretending to date your brother's best friend? Don't let feelings get involved.

Sixteen-year-old Lexi Stevens has never been kissed--never even been asked on a date. So when she humiliates herself in front of her crush and her brother's best friend offers to be her fake boyfriend for the week to make him jealous, she doesn't know if it's the stupidest idea ever, or a dream come true.

When Noah Taylor gets kicked out of his house by his abusive stepdad, the last thing he needs is for anyone at school to find out--not even his best friend. But when his new "girlfriend" discovers him sleeping in his car and offers to let him sleep in her closet, he starts to wonder if he's found someone he can confide in after all.

Pretty soon Noah and Lexi are putting on a big show in front of the whole school while sneaking around behind her overprotective father's back. It isn't long before feelings develop and it becomes harder and harder to discern between what's fake and what's real.

It Was Always You is a standalone novel in The Ridgewater High series, a collection of simmering YA contemporary romances. If you like sweet romance with ballad-worthy chemistry, swoony kisses and endearing characters then you'll love Judy Corry's latest book.

The Prom Kiss (Briarwood High Book 5)

by Maggie Dallen

When a mean girl kisses a nice guy, someone is going to get hurt. Or fall in love. Or...maybe both.

Tina Withers doesn't do nice. When she kisses Julian-the-emo-songwriter-freak to make his cheating ex-girlfriend jealous it's absolutely not out of the kindness of her heart. She's only evening the score since he'd not only let her cry on his shoulder after her latest breakup with her jerk of an ex, but he'd kept the whole humiliating incident a secret. Her frenemies would have leaped at the chance to take her down a notch by spilling the gory details of her stockroom meltdown. 

So yeah, she owed him one. Besides, a good guy like Julian deserves better than his manipulative, selfish ex. And no matter how hot his kisses might be, he deserves better than her, too. She's spent a lifetime creating her reputation as the biggest baddie at school, and her crowning glory is in sight as she prepares to claim her throne as Briarwood's reigning prom queen. It's too late to change now...isn't it? Or maybe Julian is right. Maybe a little nice goes a long way when you're known for being mean.

The Tenth Nail (Nate & Clare Book 1)

byKwen Griffeth

Is A Serial Killer On The Loose?

Nate Burns, a seasoned detective, knelt beside the dead girl. This wasn’t Nate’s first homicide; it wasn’t even the first murder of a prostitute that he’d investigated. But, this one bothered him. Maybe it was her youth; she appeared to be in her early twenties. Maybe it was her looks, as death had yet to rob her of her beauty. Maybe she reminded him of his daughter, Lizzie, who was only a few years younger. Maybe it was something else entirely.

With little to no evidence and only vague descriptions to go on, Nate and his partner Manny Trujillo are determined to seek the truth, no matter where that journey leads them.

Till it Stops Beating

byHannah R. Goodman

Seventeen-year-old Maddie Hickman’s senior year begins with the good (the reemergence of The One That Got Away), the bad (a cancer diagnosis, not hers, but it might as well be) and the WTF (an anxiety attack that renders her writhing on the floor like an upside down crab). 

Adding to her spiraling anxiety is Senior Project, in the form of I’ve Decided To Write A Book about The Other One That Got Away (And Crushed My Heart). Compounding it all is applying to college and keeping up with her friends. The ever mounting stress eventually rips her tight grip on all that she holds dear.

Her break down leads to an unexpected road trip where she is forced to listen to her wildly beating heart. It is only in the back of a convertible with pop music blasting, that she discovers she must risk everything in order to really live.
