Abby Abernathy is a good
girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of
cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from
the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best
friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern
University’s Walking One-Night Stand.
Travis Maddox, lean, cut,
and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby wants—and needs—to avoid.
He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his
days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s
resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a
simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby
loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time.
Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.
When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his
choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into
sophomore year. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new
reality: she's single, attending a state university instead of a music
conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, and failing a
class for the first time in her life.
Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex's frat brother.
Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right
time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that
night--but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class,
sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to
be the perfect rebound.
When her attacker turns stalker, Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in
defeat or learn to fight back. Lucas remains protective, but he's hiding
secrets of his own. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing
who to trust is anything but easy.
Deep in the stacks of
Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls
up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research.
Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants
nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes,
she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a
fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and
vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a
coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can
break its spell.
Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way
nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the
Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life.
All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the
bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to
herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that
would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never
planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter
the precarious future she’s building for herself.
Some things are worth experiencing…
Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness,
complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to
make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She
knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere,
with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so…
so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring
the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other
becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.
Some things should never be kept quiet…
But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls
forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice
but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of
that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes
out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be
there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?
For almost two years now, Kiera's boyfriend, Denny, has been everything
she's ever wanted: loving, tender and endlessly devoted to her. When
they head off to a new city to start their lives together, Denny at his
dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university, everything seems perfect.
Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart.
Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an
unexpected source – a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he's
purely a friend that she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so
does their relationship. And then one night everything changes...and
none of them will ever be the same.
He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy.
So, that was Matt. Who Julie Seagle likes. A lot. But there is also Finn. Who she flat out loves.
Complicated? Awkward? Completely.
But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie
college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the
family of an old friend of her mother's? This was all supposed to be
temporary. Julie wasn't supposed to be important to the Watkins family,
or to fall in love with one of the brothers. Especially the one she's
never quite met. But what does that really matter? Finn gets her, like
no one ever has before. They have connection.
But here's the thing about love, in all its twisty, bumpy
permutations—it always throws you a few curves. And no one ever escapes
Livie has always been the stable one of the two Cleary sisters, handling
her parents' tragic death and Kacey's self-destructive phase with
strength and maturity. But underneath that exterior is a little girl
hanging onto the last words her father ever spoke to her. “Make me
proud,” he had said. She promised she would...and she’s done her best
over the past seven years with every choice, with every word, with every
Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she’s dead set on
delivering on it: Rock her classes, set herself up for medical school,
and meet a good, respectable guy that she’s going to someday marry. What
isn’t part of her plan are Jell-O shots, a lovable, party animal
roommate she can’t say ‘no’ to, and Ashton, the gorgeous captain of the
men’s rowing team. Definitely him. He’s an arrogant ass who makes
Livie’s usually non-existent temper flare and everything she doesn’t
want in a guy. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who
happens to fits Livie’s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep
thinking about Ashton?
As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no
longer thinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she
shouldn’t have, she’s forced to let go of her last promise to her father
and, with it, the only identity that she knows.
What does it take to rise from life’s depths, swim against the current, and breathe?
Weighted down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to
keep her head above water as she trudges through her last year at
Matthews College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into
something she doesn’t expect—an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired
senior named Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated
than her own.
As their relationship deepens, Chris pulls Blythe out of the stupor
she’s been in since the night a fire took half her family. She begins to
heal, and even, haltingly, to love this guy who helps her find new
paths to pleasure and self-discovery. But as Blythe moves into calmer
waters, she realizes Chris is the one still strangled by his family’s
traumatic history. As dark currents threaten to pull him under, Blythe
may be the only person who can keep him from drowning.
What happens when you create rules to keep others out?
One thing Emerson Moore has come to terms with is that she is the school
slut. She knows her way around a frat house and how to get what she
wants. She doesn’t make any excuses for her actions and she doesn’t
pretend to be anything different. She is who she is and with that she
knows how to have a good time. She’s made rules to keep relationships at
bay and avoid the demons of her past.
When her best friend, Cole has his two friends from back home move in
with him she begins to think she has met her match with Jaxon Riley. Jax
is the perfect mixture of tattooed muscle and a sweet-talking mouth.
With “hand” written notes, a voice that exudes sex and knowing just how
to get under her skin, Jaxon learns how to break all the rules. But will
he just end up breaking her heart anyway?
