i was super surprised to receive an email from an author this week regarding a request i sent months ago. i heard about a book that sounded like an interesting twist on a pretty standard tale, and i asked for a copy. due to issues with the publisher, i was unable to get one at the time. the author kept my email and followed up with me this week. yeah, MONTHS later. how amazing is that?

May 2011, Synergy Books
Every summer, fourteen-year-old Rachel leaves her home in England to stay with her grandparents in Florida. But this year, there's an exciting change when Rachel meets Jed, a brooding, cynical guitar player, and Kyle, an idealistic future soldier. Shy, lonely Rachel blossoms under the attention she receives from the boys, and she finds herself strongly drawn to both. But as the summer unfolds, so does the tension, jealousy, and attraction between them, and conflicts threaten to destroy their friendship. Things become even more complicated when Rachel is assaulted by one of Kyle's friends, spurring an explosive reaction from one of the boys, and consequences none of the three could have foreseen.

Two irresistible boys. One unforgettable summer.
Lori can’t wait for her summer at the lake. She loves wakeboarding and hanging with her friends--including the two hotties next door. With the Vader brothers, she's always been just one of the guys. Now that she’s turning sixteen, she wants to be seen as one of the girls, especially in the eyes of Sean, the older brother. But that’s not going to happen--not if the younger brother, Adam, can help it.
Lori plans to make Sean jealous by spending time with Adam. Adam has plans of his own for Lori. As the air heats up, so does this love triangle. Will Lori’s romantic summer melt into one hot mess?

what'd y'all get this week? show me! and link it up over at The Story Siren.

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.
