Just one Kiss
by Amelia Whitmore
Sometimes hurtful remarks are easier to believe than the truth...
That's what Annie Holden realizes after her family belittles her weight and the hottest guy in high school--her first big crush--humiliates her in front of the entire senior class.
Fast-forward to now, Annie has left that insecure girl far behind as she starts her freshman year at college, or so she thought....
When she meets Brayden Clark, those old insecurities resurface with a vengeance.
Brayden's gorgeous, athletic, and confident. Basically everything that Annie's not. Curvy girls like Annie don't date handsome jocks like Braydon. And falling for a guy like him is certainly not on her college to-do list. Because Annie has vowed to never fall in love again.
Being alone is safer for her fragile heart, and those walls surrounding it might be tough to break, but Brayden isn't giving up without a fight. Keeping him in the friend-zone won't be easy and Annie's resolve weakens each time they meet. Brayden brings out a side of Annie that she never knew existed...a girl she hardly recognizes--one that is beautiful and self-assured. If only Annie could see herself through his eyes.
Can one heart-melting kiss win her heart? And will it change both their lives forever?

Then she meets Starr, the headmaster's rebellious daughter who refuses to play by the rules. The differences between them are night and day but Dawn is fascinated.

Skateboarders like the gorgeous Sean, who's sweet, smart, and curiously serious -- everything Dawn's always wanted in a boyfriend. Soon she finds herself head over heels and doing the unthinkable, lying to her parents and friends. Deep down she knows her parents will never approve of this boy from the wrong side of town...and her secret life is finally catching up to her.
Will Dawn be forced to choose between the girl she was and the girl she is meant to be? And if she chooses, will she lose her skater boy forever?
