The F word (Redefining Me book 1)

by Michelle MacQueen & Ann Maree Craven

One party. 

One accident.

Six lives changed forever.

Peyton Callahan refuses to let the F word define her

She has always remained body positive, never letting others’ perceptions color her view of herself. But after the accident that claimed her brother’s life, Peyton’s weight spirals out of control, and she succumbs to the label her peers forced on her years ago. 
The fat girl.
In the aftermath of tragedy, Peyton’s world falls apart and worst of all, her best friend and almost-boyfriend, Cameron, leaves her behind, too damaged and heartbroken to ever see her the way he once had.  

Cameron Tucker—the jock and all around track god—believes he lost everything the night a car accident sent him and his friends plunging over Defiance Falls. 
His friend Cooper: Dead.
Cameron’s Olympic dream: Gone.
And Peyton: Will never look at him the same way again. 

So, he does what he once did best, he runs, escaping Twin Rivers and everyone in it, never expecting to return, never imagining he’d have to face the girl he left behind. 

Eighteen months later, he is no longer the boy any of them remember. Except Peyton. No matter how hard he tries to hide, she still sees him, still believes in him. 

What will she say when she discovers just how broken he is?

The Trail Rules

By: Melanie Hooyenga

Junior year’s looking up for sixteen-year old Mike. Her new BFF isn’t a sadistic control freak, her boyfriend adores her, and she’s learning to bike in the mountains without decapitating herself on a tree. 
Well, almost.
When she meets a group of riders who welcome her into their pack, she feels like she’s finally found where she belongs. One particular rider—a boy with an amazing smile and an even more amazing ability to see what she’s truly capable of—gives her the confidence to go after what she wants: her own life with her own rules.
There’s only one problem—he’s not her boyfriend.
Just as things seem to be falling into place, her parents put on the pressure to figure out her future—one that doesn’t include riding. Mike soon realizes that having everything isn’t that great when she’s not the one choosing it. She needs to decide if she’s going to continue to be a follower or step out of the shadows and find her own trail.

The Alchemists of Loom

by Elise Kova

What does thief with a dangerous past, a Dragon prince, and a trigger-happy gunmage have in common? 

One dangerous mission to assassinate a king.

Arianna is Loom's most notorious thief. Using magic in tandem with ruthlessness and unscrupulous morals, there's no job she won't take... So long as it defies her Dragon oppressors.

When Arianna runs into a wounded Dragon during her latest heist, she sees the opportunity to make a little extra cash. But before she can cut out his heart, the Dragon makes her an offer she can't refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she embarks on the perilous journey to bring him to the Alchemists Guild.

With the Dragon and her assistant in tow, the three are now on the run from the Dragon King's blood-thirsty riders. They'll traverse dangerous cities, break into the highest security prison in the world, face off against underground monsters, and battle across the skies. Arianna will let nothing stop her from reaching her goal.

In fact, the only thing that could strike fear into Arianna's cold heart... is the truth of her own identity. She's not supposed to exist. And if anyone finds out what she really is, it'll change the world.

Get ready for dark magic, epic eventure, slow-burn romance, and dangerous secrets in a divided world unlike any you've ever read.

Cursed Academy: Year One

by Holly Hook

Giselle Bowman never thought she'd be descended from a Greek god...or a monster.

Klutzes and small-town girls don't find out they're descended from the Greek gods. They don't get taken to Olympian Academy to learn to hone their godlike powers. But when Giselle accidentally summons a void that almost eats her friend, it's done. Except she doesn't get sorted into Olympian, but to Cursed Academy, where the descendants of dark gods and the monsters from Greek mythology learn to serve their betters.  

And that's just the start. Giselle 1.) has a new type of magic never seen before and 2.) gets to deal with an epic jerk, Ronin, from Olympian Academy next door. He's a descendant of Zeus, totally hot, and very out of her league.  

Giselle quickly learns her void-summoning powers aren't normal and that an unknown enemy--perhaps someone in Cursed Academy already--seeks to use her for a plan so vile, it threatens the gods and the modern world. With nowhere else to turn, Giselle must seek help from Ronin, who might have a clue on what she is. If only he'd stop making fun of her every time she trips over her shoelaces. 

Is Giselle ready to learn the terrifying truth about herself and her powers?

Truth or dare 

by Madeleine Labitan

What's a girl to do when she's forced to spend time with her childhood nemesis? 
There are only three things Mackenzie Brown looks forward to on a Friday night: cheesy rom coms, mani pedi and a quiet sleepover with her friends. 
Crashing a party and getting payback on her best friend's cheating ex-boyfriend are definitely NOT part of the plan. Especially the possibility of getting caught!
But worst of all? Getting dared into taking a dip in freezing lakewater with the cocky Sean Murphy. 
Can’t she catch a break?
But when truths are revealed and secrets come out, Mackenzie starts to realize that maybe, just maybe, missing out on a quiet sleepover isn't so bad after all…

The Dating Dare

by A.R. Perry

No one gets under Lily Holladay’s skin quicker than her ex-best friend Parker Hayes. Popular and completely full of himself, he goes out of his way to make her life miserable. Too bad he lives right next door making avoiding him near impossible.
Parker Hayes can’t stand Lily Holladay, but not for the reasons she thinks. He made a huge mistake when he pushed her away the summer his family life shattered. Four years later, he has no idea how to fix their relationship.
Their balancing act of avoidance and aversion implodes when they are dared to date each other for the summer. With their friends shoving them together and an impromptu trip to a childhood lake house, they may very well discover that strong feelings of dislike are masking something deeper.
So the question is, will truth come from a dare?

Rey
I sold my soul to save my family--and lost everything because of it. Now I'm a slave to the underworld, a fake hunter with half-demon blood.
I've been sent on a special assassination mission. If I fail, it means my life. But protecting Erin soon becomes more important than any other task, and there's something about her that tells me her arrival at the academy will change everything ...
