The problem? Alexi is hot, fascinating, and she’s falling fast. Feisty, seventeen-year-old Mia will face Shakespeare’s age-old question: ‘Is it better to have loved and lost…’ or will he stay?

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?

The Shy Girl and the Football Star

by Julia Keanini

A relationship between the nerdy, shy girl and the hot football star can work, right?

The only thing worse than having to go to the same high school as my beautiful, cheer-captain sister, Charity? Finding out she's dating the boy next door I've had a crush on since I was three years old. 
Being in the shadow of a girl like Charity would be tough for any little sister, but when I can't fit the shadow because I'll never be perky, popular, or a size two? Life is pretty near miserable. At least my awesome friends make high school bearable. But when football stardom and the popularity that brings threatens to take away Tuck, the best of my friends? That's when something has to change. 
A story of friendship, family, tragedy, and most of all romance.

Young Love

by Paige Powers

What happens when a charade between teen friends turns into the real thing?

Lidia is your average girl next door saddled with the ordinary troubles of youth. Breakups, makeups, drama in the halls, it’s all in a school day’s work.

Jack is your all-American teenager experiencing the usual woes of his generation. Crazy parties, locker scenes, immaturity. And if that wasn’t enough, he’s got serious girl problems.

It just so happens that Jack’s friend, Lidia, is having her own dating issues. The two of them come up with a plan to get back at their exes. Pretend to be boyfriend and girlfriend and flaunt their incredible happiness to make their past loves jealous. The plan is brilliant and they put on the performance of their young lives. They have high hopes the ruse will be successful and they’ll be back with their original partners before too long.

Things are going good for the new, happy couple. But over the course of the faux relationship, they discover each other's true personas and are drawn together despite the false pretenses. Their affection toward one another becomes something neither one expected: genuine.

by Scarlett Haven

And then there is Noah. My brother told me to stay away from him, but the more I get to know him, the more I like him. He’s my only friend right now and I need an ally.
On top of my crazy new life, somebody is out to get me. They’re leaving me mysterious notes, but I can’t figure out who. I need to find out before somebody gets hurt, or worse.

Skater Boy 

by Mari Mancusi

Dawn Miller is sick of being good. Her parents have scheduled her to within an inch of her life and her popular friends can only think of hooking up and shopping. She's ready for a serious boyfriend, and it's definitely not the obnoxious rich boy everyone wants her to date. 

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. Starr introduces her to a world she didn't even know existed: hip indy record stores, all night raves, and cute skateboarders who hang out underneath a parking deck downtown. 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?
