Book Genre: New Adult

Baseball and Broadway

A broken heart is never an easy one to mend.

Alice spent years forming a new identity while chasing her dreams. A fresh start was just what she needed. When she scores the leading role in a Broadway hit, a new world of possibilities opens up, including singing the National Anthem at the very game her ex was playing.

The biggest mistake of Easton's life was ending things with Alice before they left for college. No woman has gotten close to him since. Instead, his primary focus is on his baseball career. While warming up before a game, a voice comes over the speakers as the Anthem is sung. A voice that causes something deep to stir inside of him.

Is it possible to rekindle a romance after so much damage was done? This game is bigger than any Easton has ever played. Two hearts are on the line. Either he'll strike out or slide into home for the win. There's only one way to find out.

From This Moment

Weddings are supposed to be the best day of your life. Right?

I was ecstatic the day Reaf proposed. Ready to have my fairytale wedding and happily ever after. Until everything goes wrong.

The church floods, and we have to find somewhere to have the ceremony ASAP. All of this on top of midterms, and it’s taking everything in me not to break.

I’m ready to begin my adventures with Reaf. Right now, it seems impossible.

Cocktails & Crushes

Out of the Ashes will be the best bar in the county. At least that's what I promised my uncle before he passed away.

With all the changes we're making, more challenges arise. The crowd seems to get rowdier with every day that passes, and most days I feel like I can't keep my head above water.

That is until Dylan, the kid I used to babysit, walks in. He's definitely not a kid anymore. But he might just be what I need to keep the bar running smoothly. Too bad he isn't staying in town.

Guarding my heart is the least of my problems, but I'm not sure how long I can fight my attraction.

Welcome to Your Life

Pregnant and alone. That’s not how I expected to end up after high school.

Jake wants me back. But I don’t want that toxic relationship. We aren’t good together and this baby isn’t the reason we should work things out.

Between work and school, I barely have time to figure out what I want to do. That is until I’m paired up with a hot guy in class for a project. He’s slowly working his way into my heart. But, I’m pregnant and trying to adjust to my new life. How can he actually be interested in me?

With Jake home from college, he’s doubling his efforts. Especially now that he sees me with Reaf.

I have decisions to make...and it’s not just about me anymore.

Cruel and Beautiful World

Perfect student by day, party girl by night.

I may look like I have my life together, but I don’t. Almost every decision I make is controlled by my father since he bankrolls my education.

Passing all of my classes: Check

Letting Dear Ol’ Dad control my class load: Check

Finding ways to piss him off: Double Check

Parties are the only things I can control. No pressure from my parents and I can be me. It’s a freedom I won’t let go of. And I don’t need saving from myself. Especially not from one of my straight-laced classmates that seems to have made it his life mission. I don’t care how good looking he is. He can see the writing on the wall and refuses to let me end up like his mother.

Ways to Go

I screwed up and I can’t blame anyone but myself.

I have a kid who I’ve only seen through pictures. My girlfriend left me and decided to raise our daughter with another man.

That all changes when I decide to get a tattoo with my buddies on a drunken night. I have one objective, get some ink to distract me from my problems. Charleigh, the sassy receptionist, takes me by surprise. She acts like she hates me, but I know there’s something between us.

I need to put my life back together. I have to in order to be the father I need to be for my baby girl. The only problem...I’m falling for Charleigh, but she doesn’t know everything about me.

Remember That Night

I don’t do sloppy seconds—even if they are my own.

Derrick broke my heart when we were in high school. Because of him, I reinvented myself to show the world I’m stronger than ever, so no one can hurt me again. Least of all, Derrick.

Now, he’s crashed into my life again, going to the same college as me. To make matters worse, his best friend is dating my best friend, and avoiding him is almost impossible. Except, of course, when he’s practicing for basketball tryouts.

The more time we spend together the more I think that’s not the only game he’s playing.

My Only Wish is You

It was only supposed to be a summer fling.

I left the only girl I ever truly cared about. Not because I wanted to, but because I had to. Bianca locked herself away, not even telling me goodbye.

Now it’s Christmas break and she’s avoiding me at all costs. How am I supposed to tear down the walls she’s built to prove we’re made for each other?

Shoot Down the Stars

One glance and it came rushing back.

I’ve given up on finding “the one”. I have dreams of doing something with myself. Something more than working at the local hardware store. I might as well face it. There’s no chance of leaving this small town or my alcoholic father.

Until I see Amelia, my childhood friend and Tonya’s cousin, at a wedding. To my surprise, she’s moving into Tonya’s old room, and sticking around Asheville for a while.

Friends. That’s all we can be. I’m not looking for love, and neither is she. But, can I live without her when she moves back home?
