The F word (Redefining Me book 1)

by Michelle MacQueen & Ann Maree Craven

Peyton:

The kiss was perfect. 

The accident that followed was tragic.

Eighteen months have passed and I haven’t seen Cameron since that night. My best friend kissed me and then ghosted me.

Fifty pounds later and I’m the F word. No, not that F word. This one has three letters that have haunted me my entire life. 

Now, Cameron Tucker is back. 

But who am I kidding? Peyton Callahan doesn’t get the guy. 

Cameron:

The kiss was a huge mistake. 

The accident ruined my life. 

I kissed my best friend and then abandoned her. Now I’m back. 

I don’t regret loving her. I only wish she’d forgotten me and that incredible kiss.  

Because I know her. Peyton pushes buttons and pries into secrets. 

And this secret I’ve returned with? 

Let’s just say my label has a lot more than three letters.

The Slope Rules

By: Melanie Hooyenga

Fifteen-year old Cally accepted her fate as one of the guys, so when she meets Blake, a hot snowboarder who sees her for more than her aerials on the slopes, she falls fast and hard. But their romance can only last as long as vacation.
Or so she thinks.
A twist of fate—well, her Dad opening another brewery in a new town—lands her in Blake’s school, but the charismatic boy she fell for wants nothing to do with her, and worse, the Snow Bunnies, the popular clique, claim her as their newest recruit.
Cally must learn to be true to herself—all while landing a spot on the ski team and figuring out who she is without her old friends. And when she finds out what Blake is hiding, she learns the rules on the slopes apply to more than just skiing.

Tall Dark and Nerdy

by Maggie Dallen

My best friend was a giant dork...right up until he became a billionaire. 

That's right, my best friend is a billionaire. Who would have guessed that my nerdy BFF would become an overnight success? Not even Oliver expected the dating app he'd created for a high school coding class to take off the way it had, or for a mega-corporation to acquire it. And as for that whole insta-celebrity situation? Yeah, no one saw that coming. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. Oliver's sudden windfall definitely has its perks, especially for me, his oldest and closest pal. Limos and private jets? Don't mind if I do. But there are downfalls, too. Ones I definitely hadn't seen coming. Like the fact that my dork of a bestie is suddenly in demand with the ladies. 

Oliver has always been cute, but never cool. And game? Well, the guy just didn't have it. Until now, it seems. Money might not buy love, but it can get you a fresh look. New clothes, new haircut, new glasses...and what do you know? My tall, nerdy BFF is now a hottie, and every girl wants him. 

If he can have any girl he wants, then why is he kissing me? I swore we would only ever be friends...so I guess the better question is: why don't I want him to stop?

We Thought We Were Invincible

by Michelle MacQueen

I, Callie McCoy, am not in love with my brother’s best friend. 
I swear. 
Mortal enemies can’t fall in love. They don’t smile at each other or go off on secret skydiving adventures. 
Definitely not. 
I’m better off on my own with a surfboard underneath my feet and a wave helping me fly. 
But that’s the thing about birds. Even they have flocks. Before I realize what’s happening, I have one of the most popular girls in school claiming she wants to be my friend… and Jamie… well, he’s getting a lot less annoying. 
My brother can’t find out Jamie is replacing bickering with sweet kisses. 
But, who am I kidding? Jamie has never been serious about anything. It’ll be over before either of us can blink. 

I, Jamie Daniels, have been in love with my best friend’s sister for more years than I’ll admit. 
And she hates me. 
Mostly. 
She’s never needed me, not the way I need her, but it’s time for that to change. 
It’s time for her to see I’m not the annoying kid who teased her anymore. 
When I kiss her, she lets me. 
But when I want more, she only laughs. 
I’ll do anything to be with her, even if it means keeping our relationship a secret. Even if it means holding her together when our entire world falls apart. 
Because that’s the thing about high school. Eventually, the illusion of protection shatters and all we have left is each other.

The Play Maker 

by Jordan Ford

She's a girl with a plan. He's a guy who thinks he knows what he wants. Can the quirkiest girl in school win over the coolest guy on the football team?
This is it—Tori’s senior year. Her last chance to leave Nelson High without a bucketload of regrets. Number one priority—get Colt to fall in love with her. 
So what if he’s the Raider’s number one playmaker? 
So what if he’s so far out of her league the idea of them together would rupture the school’s social order?
She has to try, before it’s too late. 
She’s come up with the perfect excuse to spend more time with him. All Colt has to do is think he’s helping her win over one of his teammates, and in the process he’ll fall madly in love with her.
Or will he?
Colt wants one thing: to play football after high school. But his grades are tanking and his dreams of playing college ball are fading…fast. He doesn’t really have time to waste helping out Tori, but they were friends in middle-school and he just can’t turn her down. Besides, how hard can it be to get one of his teammates to notice her?
He’ll help her out, and then he’ll focus on what’s really important: football…assuming he can stop thinking about the last girl who could ever steal his heart.

Hushed

by Joanne Macgregor

She wants to leave home. He wants to be free of his past. 
But far from being the perfect escape, the glamorous world of movie-making is starting to look like a trap
Eighteen-year-old Romy Logan has just finished high school and is ready to take on the world, swim with dolphins and save the whales. Her parents have conventional ideas about what she should do with her future, but Romy wants more – more freedom, more adventure, more excitement!
So when she saves her celebrity crush, Hollywood heartthrob Logan Rush, from drowning in the ocean, and is offered a job as his personal assistant on a movie-set, she snaps it up immediately.
At first, Romy is as out of her element as a mermaid on dry land. But the new job is exhilarating and fun, and she discovers that Logan is smart, talented, thoughtful and even hotter in the flesh than in the kiss-covered life-size poster in Romy’s bedroom. Soon, romance blossoms between the obsessed fan-girl and the prince of Hollywood.
But it’s not long before Romy realizes that the movie set is a world of illusions and broken promises where she’s expected to shut up and do as she’s told. Wondering if she’s traded her voice and dreams for a handful of tinsel stars, she even finds herself doubting whether Logan’s feelings for her are real.
Then she discovers a terrible secret from his past that has the power to destroy his career. And when he makes a choice that hurts and angers her, Romy will need to choose between revenge and love.

Courtside Crush

by Kayla Tirrell

So much for senior year being the best part of high school.

It all started when I caught my boyfriend cheating on me.

I did what any girl would do—I got revenge. Of course, it didn’t stop there. Thanks to a condemning video, I also got eight weeks of community service and athletic probation right before basketball season is supposed to start. (There goes my spot as captain!)

Thankfully, there’s a guy at Marlowe Junction’s Helping Hands who makes passing the time more enjoyable. He’s gorgeous, funny, and a huge basketball fan.

Too bad he’s also my brother’s biggest enemy…

Vanishing Summer

by Lora Richardson

He disappeared four years ago, and I'm to blame. Now he's back.

I call it the vanishing summer. Everett, my best friend and the first boy I ever kissed, was kidnapped; taken from right beside me. Three months later my mom died. They were both just gone. The bright, fearless spark inside me was gone, too--blown clean out.

I learned that the worst could happen at any moment and with no warning. I didn't want to go outside anymore. I avoided the woods where Everett and I had played. I hated to let my brother and my dad out of my sight. For four years, I lived with a pounding heart and shaking hands.

But I'm sixteen now, and ready to find my way back to myself; to move forward. Just as that begins to seem possible, Everett walks through the trees and back into my life.
