Head of the class…

Garrett Daniels has this whole life thing figured out.

The cocky, charismatic former high school star quarterback is an idolized football coach and “cool” teacher in the hometown where he’s not just a golden boy — he’s platinum. He has good friends, a great house on the lake, and the best damn sidekick a man could ask for: Snoopy, the albino beagle.

Then…Callie Carpenter comes home.

And knocks him right on his tight end zone.

Back to school…

Callie has a pretty sweet life herself…on the other side of the country. But circumstances — that she’d prefer to never speak of again — have brought her back home, helping out her parents and substitute teaching at her old high school.

Now she’s facing bickering, raging hormones, constant gossip, awkward weirdness, and drama galore…and that’s just the teachers.

Just like old times…

When Garrett offers to show his former high school sweetheart the secrets of his winning teacher ways, Callie jumps at the chance – and then has to stop herself from jumping him.

Good friends are all they can ever be.

Or…these teachers just might end up getting schooled — hard — by love.

Includes a special bonus interview with the author!

1.Hate-screw my high school nemesis.

2.Remember to hate him.

3.Prove my brother wrong.

It should be easy.

It isn’t.


As the owner of Pick-A-Dick, New Orleans’ premier hook-up website, my job is simple. Connect two people for a no-strings, no-expectations hook-up. The plus for my clients is that I’m the one who gets to sift through the dick pics—except this time, they’re required.

My problem? My brother, co-owner of Pick-A-Dick’s sister dating site, doesn’t believe it’s possible to hook up with someone three times and not fall in love.

I disagree. I know it’s possible.

And my disagreement is exactly how I end up reconnected with my high school nemesis, Elliott Sloane. The guy who asked me to junior prom and then stood me up. Who egged my car when I rejected him, and convinced my senior homecoming date to ghost me.

It should be easy to hate-screw him. If only he was still that person, instead of a hot-as-hell single dad, working as a builder to make ends’ meet, fighting for custody of his daughter.

Not to mention packing in the pants department…


Three hook-ups.

One outcome.

An incurable romantic with a chronic case of bad luck with men…

Museum curator Summer Bennett knows that happily-ever-afters are not make-believe. After all, her siblings all found their soulmates, so she’s optimistic her prince charming will come along too…eventually. In the meantime, she focuses on her job and her volunteering—which brings her face to face with one of Hollywood’s hottest A-listers.

When Alexander Westbrook flashes America’s favorite panty-melting smile, Summer’s entire body responds. When she asks him to get involved in the community where she volunteers, Summer is shocked that the Hollywood heartthrob agrees right away. Two weeks working side by side with the world’s sexiest guy, and the game is on.

Far from the public eye, Summer discovers she likes the real Alex even more than his on-screen persona. Secret kisses and whispered conversations spark a fire in her that nothing can extinguish. If only his life wasn’t splashed all over the tabloids…

Alex can’t keep his eyes–or his hands–off of Summer. But she’s too sweet, and too damn lovely to be swept up in his Hollywood drama. His career is at risk, and an iron-clad clause in his contract with the studio makes a relationship impossible. But staying away from her is out of the question.

Read an Excerpt of YOUR ENDLESS LOVE

“Do you want to talk about today?” Summer asks as we lean back on the couch.

“Not tonight. I like that this place is drama-free. Thank you for making that happen.”

She widens her eyes, then groans. “You saw the magazines.”

“Yeah. I wanted to thank you yesterday but thought bringing the evening up would just make you uncomfortable again. But thank you.”

“You’re welcome.” She takes a small sip of wine, sinking lower on the couch.

“What’s wrong?”

“Just residual embarrassment for that night. I’ll get over it. Eventually.”

I turn to her, framing her jaw with my hand, leaning in. “Summer, we’ve been over this.”

A small sound escapes her, somewhere between a chuckle and a choke. “You probably forgot all about it already.”

The gentleman thing would be to tell her I did. But I don’t have the energy to act any longer tonight, and I don’t want to act around her. I want to be honest, and something in her body language tips me off that she needs that honesty.

“I don’t think I’ll ever forget it. The sight of your beautiful body is branded in my brain.”

Her mouth pops open. “But… you said it wasn’t a big deal, that you’d seen plenty of actresses—”

“I was trying to put you at ease.” By the looks of it, I did just the opposite. “You have no idea how hard it was to keep my control, Summer. I wanted you so badly.”

She sucks in a breath. “You did?”

“I still do.”

She parts her lips, her eyes widening with surprise. I bring a hand to her face, caressing her cheek, resting my thumb at the corner of her mouth.

Her skin is so smooth, it spurs a need deep inside me, to touch more of her. To taste her. Would she taste as sweet as I remember? Have I idealized the kiss, the memory growing sweeter, more real the more time we spent together, the more I learned about her?

“I’ve missed you today,” I confess.

“You did?”


“So did I. I arrived late at breakfast, and no one saved me muffins.”

“I brought you something.” I pull the small package out of my pocket and take out the necklace with a little key pendant. “I saw it at LAX. It made me think of you.”

“I love it.”

“Let me put it on.”

She turns around, baring her neck to me. I clasp the necklace, lingering with my fingers at the back of her neck. She lets out a little sigh. I trace the contour of her shoulder, needing to touch more of her. Summer tightens her grip on one of the couch cushions.

I move closer until my chest almost touches her back, rubbing my thumb gently in the crook of her neck and shoulder. When she tilts her head slightly to the other side, giving me access, I don’t hesitate. I lower my mouth, pressing kisses to her skin.


The vibration in her voice is the sexiest sound. I bring one hand to her waist, spin her around, then capture her mouth with mine.

She parts her lips, granting me access, entwining her tongue with mine as soon as I request it. I deepen the kiss, moving my hand from her waist to her thigh, bunching up her dress. I want to feel her skin, taste it, because she tastes even better than I remember, and I want to explore all of her.

“Alex,” she whispers again when I trail my mouth down her neck. “One night. Just this one night.”

WWW Wednesdays – 2/7/2018

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking on a World of Words

The Three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

33503607Meet Cute by several authors

Whether or not you believe in fate, or luck, or love at first sight, every romance has to start somewhere. MEET CUTE is an anthology of original short stories featuring tales of “how they first met” from some of today’s most popular YA authors.

Readers will experience Nina LaCour’s beautifully written piece about two Bay Area girls meeting via a cranky customer service Tweet, Sara Shepard’s glossy tale about a magazine intern and a young rock star, Nicola Yoon’s imaginative take on break-ups and make-ups, Katie Cotugno’s story of two teens hiding out from the police at a house party, and Huntley Fitzpatrick’s charming love story that begins over iced teas at a diner. There’s futuristic flirting from Kass Morgan and Katharine McGee, a riveting transgender heroine from Meredith Russo, a subway missed connection moment from Jocelyn Davies, and a girl determined to get out of her small town from Ibi Zoboi. Jennifer Armentrout writes a sweet story about finding love from a missing library book, Emery Lord has a heartwarming and funny tale of two girls stuck in an airport, Dhonielle Clayton takes a thoughtful, speculate approach to pre-destined love, and Julie Murphy dreams up a fun twist on reality dating show contestants.

I haven’t technically started this yet but it’s been on my read shelf on Goodreads for like a week and I have the audiobook downloaded so I don’t know what I’m waiting for. I’m really hoping this is going to be on my read shelf by next week!

I’m also still doing my reread of City of Ashes. I got really behind in my schedule for that so I spent most of Monday night reading half of it.

What did you recently finish reading?

I totally didn’t realize I’d read 7 books within one week. So instead of adding the synopsis and my thoughts on all of them I’ll just put them into 3 categories and talk more about them in my monthly wrap up.



Not worth it:

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m not entirely sure yet. Maybe The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West, maybe Unearthed. Who knows? I guess you guys will find out in my next WWW Wednesdays post 😉


fun fact: i’ve never seen this movie

So I’m totally stealing this tag from HardbackHoarder on youtube and she got it from Nina Testa.

1. Many people gather for groundhog but you dont understand why……What is a book everyone gathers around hyping, but you dont understand why?

  • Me Before You! I read it a couple months ago and it was just an alright book? It didn’t break my heart like I was expecting it to and honestly I’ve forgotten a lot of what happened so..

2. The famous groundhog predicts the weather….. A book you find predictable?

  • We Were Liars… I know everyone says they were shocked by the plot twist but I somehow was able to guess it pretty early on in the book and that just took out all enjoyment while reading it.

3. Phil the groundhog is said to never die and have the power to predict weather….. A book dealing with a mythological creature?

  • Rampant by Diana Peterfreund. All I remember about this story is there are unicorns and the main character kills the unicorns. And for some reason in order to see the unicorns you have to be a virgin? I think there was a reason I found this in a bargain bin tbh

4. In the movie groundhog day Bill Murray relives the same day several times…….A book dealing with living a day over and over or time travel??

  • Before I Fall is very much Groundhog Day themed. I kind of want to rewatch the movie now…

5. Punxsutawney phil is from a tiny town in Pennsylvania….A book based in a small town?

  • I just completely looked over all of my books trying to think of one that had a small town and could not find one. Like… I was completely ignoring my huge Twilight collection. Come on, Forks is literally one of the most popular small towns in a book ever and I totally forgot about it? Fake fan.

If you do this tag please leave a link in the comments! I’d love to see what books you choose 🙂
