Dating Nashville (Discovering Me book 1)

by Michelle MacQueen & Ann Maree Craven

Becks:

How does a straight guy accidentally come out as gay to the entire country music world? 
I’ll get back to you when I know the answer. 
It all happened so fast. One moment, my best friend’s little brother is standing in a sea of people as his boyfriend breaks his heart. Again. 
The next, I’m jumping off stage mid-concert to give him the kiss of his life—or maybe the kiss of my life. 
I’m Beckett Anderson. Yes, that Beckett. The one who never does the smart thing, messes up daily, and somehow ended up with millions of screaming fans. 
Fans who now think I’m dating Nicky St. Germaine. 
The label says I can’t come out as straight (Is that even a thing?), that I can’t tell the world I lied. 
But this lie of mine… it doesn’t hold a candle to the one I tell myself.

Nicky:

How does the quiet gay guy end up kissing the straight country music star in front of thousands of his screaming fans?
I still can’t fathom what he was thinking when he jumped off that stage, but that kiss… None of it was real, but it felt like it. At least to me. 
I’m Nicky St. Germaine, son of a football Hall of Famer, best friends with rock star, Nari Won Song—and whatever I am to country music sensation, Beckett Anderson. The jury’s still out on that one. What does a small town kid do when so many of his friends and family are famous? He hides. Frequently. 
Now the spotlight is on me, and there is nowhere left to hide. I’m supposed to pretend to be Beckett’s adoring boyfriend for a few weeks, but that’s not so easy when I’d give almost anything for it to be true.

Book one in the Discovering Me series, Dating Nashville is a sweet M/M romance with a cocky country star, a shy small-town boy, and enough sparks between them to make you swoon.

Playing the Enemy (The Trouble with Tomboys book 1)

By: Maggie Dallen

Fake dating the new team captain? Seriously. What could possibly go wrong?

Hannah’s ex has some nerve. First he breaks up with her in a text, and now he thinks he can take soccer away from her? Think again. As the captain of their intramural team, her ex might be able to kick her off his team, but he can’t stop her from playing for their rivals.

The enemy of my enemy is my...fake boyfriend?

The fact that her new team captain is her ex’s arch nemesis? Even better. Playing for River’s team on the other side of town is the perfect payback. When her ex sees them together and gets the wrong idea... Well, what's the harm in playing along? Hannah's already learned her lesson about falling for a teammate and it's not a mistake she'll ever make again. Besides, her relationship with River is just for show—a way for them both to get vengeance on her ex. His kisses might muddle her mind, but he'll never steal her heart...right?

A tragic accident brought them together. Will devotion be the glue that mends their broken hearts?

Eighteen-year-old Harper’s perfectly planned city life changed in one devastating instant. While she prepared for college, her parents died in a horrific car crash, leaving her and her younger siblings to a distant family friend in the New Zealand countryside.

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 Kissing Tutor (Sweet Water High book 11) 

by Sally Henson

My first kiss was a total disaster.

I’m talking on the viral level.

Caught on camera and played on a loop for every single person at prom to see. And then record on their phones to share with the entire world. 

People I didn’t even know were sharing the video with captions like this:

Guppy girl gets her guy! #worstkissever #fishlips #ew

Man-eater! #lookout #JAWSremake

My senior year is almost over. If I don’t do something big - and fast - I'll always be Tommie the tomboy; worst kisser in Sweet Water High history.

So I have to ask the most embarrassing question of my painfully attractive best friend: Will you help me find a kissing tutor?

And to my heart’s demise, he says he’s the man for the job.

The Kissing Game

by Julia Keanini

It's the game that can change everything. 

Every noteworthy couple at Kiss Academy has started in the same place, in the same way. The Kissing Game. And although I'd like to say the idea of doing the same thing as everyone else is too cliche...I can't. 

But it isn't like I want just any boy to be waiting on that X, looking around the crowd to meet my eyes at the sound of the courtyard clock chiming. I only want Nashville Wilde. 

Too bad the rest of the female population at Kiss feels the same way. Not only is Nash loved by all, he's a freaking movie star and totally out of my league. And to top it all off? He's my best friend's brother. Talk about doomed. And yet like a fool...I dream. 

But then junior year rolls around and the rules of the game seem to change. We become friends and...could Nash be interested in me? Will we meet at the illustrious X? Or is it all my foolish imagination?

Off Limits: The best Friend

by Kat Bellemore

She’s the high school klutz. He’s the best friend. But it wasn’t enough.

Alexa Parker’s only goal is to get into the best pre-med program in the country. No big deal. Except that nothing in her life ever goes as planned. 

If an ice cream machine is going to explode, it will be her pulling the handle.

If a cactus is going to be sat on, it will be her butt that will be full of needles.

The only thing going right is the fact that her lifelong—and only—friend, Charlie, has stuck by her side through it all. Until Alex realizes she likes him more than a friend, and she manages to mess that up too.

Girl at Heart

by Kelly Oram

As the daughter of a successful Major League pitcher, Charlie Hastings has baseball in her blood. Unfortunately, being the only girl on her high school baseball team, Charlie has always been just one of the guys.

When her best friend, and secret love of her life, asks another girl to the prom, Charlie is devastated. She’s tired of being overlooked by boys because she’s not like other girls. Suffering a massive identity crisis, she decides to hang up her cleats and finally learn how to be a girl.

But with only two weeks until the state championships, the Roosevelt High Ravens can’t afford to lose their star catcher. Team captain Jace King makes her a deal: Don’t quit the team, and he’ll help her become the girl she’s so desperate to be. After all, he’s got four sisters, one of whom happens to be a cheerleader. He knows a thing or two about girls. (And if he can win her heart in the process, all the better.)
