Since her mom died, Amy Whalen’s been invisible—but not in the cool, superpower kind of way. Overlooked at school and ignored at home, Amy holds tight to her few constants: running, painting, and her long-held crush on soccer god, Chris Kent. But as senior year nears, Chris doesn’t just notice her, he needs her.

Amy will agree to almost anything to be with him.

Everything is great—sort of—until Luke Parker shows up for soccer tryouts and sees through every one of Amy’s defenses. When Luke decides he wants Chris’s spot on the team and wouldn’t sneeze at the captain’s jersey either their rivalry spins out of control.

It doesn’t help that Luke also wants the girl Chris kept hidden all summer: AMY.

Rachel's been keeping secrets for years. No one outside her family knows about the panic attacks or meds, the weekly therapy drive-bys or the “safe” outfit. If she could hide it all from her string of ex-boyfriends and her best friend Amy, then why should anything change? But, when the one guy as messed up as she is blackmails her into helping him, life goes from closely restrained to out of control.

Sometimes choosing between sanity and love is the craziest thing of all.


Excerpt

What would you do if you finally got what you wanted, but had to keep it a secret?

That’s what happens to Amy Whalen.

She’s finally gotten the attention of the guy she’s been crushing on for years, only he’s got some stupid plan and lots of rules and a “public persona” girlfriend to go with them that do not include Amy.

But, that’s not weird, right? I mean, her mom left her (okay, died) and her dad has been MIA for 4 years even if he does make sure that house is paid for and food occasionally shows up in the kitchen. She hasn’t even seen him in months.

So maybe she’s just that girl…the second-best girl and she should take what she can get, right?

That is, until the new guy shows up at tryouts and makes her (and her secret boyfriend) challenge everything they thought they knew about her.

SECRET GIRLFRIEND EXCERPT

Seven lockers down Chris Kent was making out with Cheryl, the way-too-perky head cheerleader.

I tried not to stare, but when his hand slid past her waist and over her hip, I slammed my locker shut and stormed off in the opposite direction. Not that anyone noticed. The problem? Not only was I that gorgeous jock’s secret girlfriend—I also had a secret power.

I’m invisible.

Okay, not invisible invisible. But, in the not-so-mythical land of Highschoolia where blending in equals obscurity, I rated a negative seven JD on the Jane Doe to Lindsay Lohan Visibility Scale. I’d have been the first to tell you I didn’t mind. Well, typically.

I’d made a deal with the devil… I mean the boy… and stomping away was the only thing I could do.

That boy? Chris Kent? Yeah, he and his Plan might just kill me where Advance Trig had failed. But, with my dream guy as the self-proclaimed prize, what’s a girl to do?

I’d been only too happy to sign onto The Plan. And, since tryout sessions were closed, little Miss Wave-My-Butt-Around-In-My-Too-Short-Cheer-Skirt couldn’t show up to practice no matter how much she fluttered her eyelashes.

You see, I’ve been in love with Chris Kent since fifth grade and, as senior year was about to start, he was finally all mine—well, sort of.

All I had to do was follow The Plan until after Homecoming, track the soccer team’s stats with the same dedication Aunt Susan counted Weight Watcher’s points, and not kill Cheryl. Easy, right?

Yeah, right. Amy needs to do a little more than that – like figure out who she is, what she really wants, and not let the two guys in her life kill each other in the meantime.

Falling in Love Event: Author Bria Quinlan, Freebie & Giveaway!

 

   

The Catching Kind by Bria Quinlan 

Hailey Tate thought she was worth more than a straight flush. Apparently not. When camera-shy author Hailey Tate’s agent loses a bet and brokers a deal, it leaves Hailey in the last place she wants to be: backed into the corner of Publicity and Paparazzi. Now, thanks to her girl-next-door image and role as pretend girlfriend to a womanizing shortstop, she's getting the attention she always managed to avoid. Connor Ryan is not only America’s Sexiest Athlete, he’s also the current Bad Boy of Baseball. But when he goes a base too far, management wants to bench him…permanently. One thing he never counted on? Falling for his sweet, fake girlfriend. He’s the guy who can catch anything and now she’s next on his list.

It’s hate at first sight when YA author Hailey Tate is blackmailed into be Baseball’s Bad Boy, Connor Ryan’s fake girlfriend to clean up his image and maybe get her some of that famous exposure:

He glanced at me, his eyes narrowing, before he dropped his feet to the floor and shot out of his seat.
“No. No way.” He pointed at me as if no one knew who he was talking about. “You said she was a stunner.”
“I said she was cute.” This from the over-suited man seated next to him. He glanced at me and then frowned at Catherine. “You said she was cute.”
“She cleans up well.”
Thanks for the support, Catherine.
“She’s not my type,” Connor stated as if I weren’t right there.
Not that it wasn’t true. His type was high-profile, famous women. Models, reality stars, actresses, news anchors, senators’ daughters…basically, anyone seven-to-twelve times more famous than me.
“That’s the entire point.” The man in the very expensive suit, who I could only assume was Dex, crossed his arms, looking at his client in a way I hoped Catherine didn’t typically look at me.
“I don’t care if that’s the point.” Connor Ryan raked a gaze over me in disgust. “I won’t be seen with someone who doesn’t even know how to blow-dry her own hair.”
Everyone’s gazes drifted up toward my hair and I knew—I knew—I was entering nightmare land. I was wrong. This was worse than a Paige & Prejudice review. This was a general assault on my person and I didn’t even know why.

Worth the Fall 

 Kasey Lane is having a bad week. Understatement. Her idea of success never involved losing her job, man, and apartment in 24-hours. Now, with nowhere to go and no way to pay for it anyway, Kasey decides it’s time for a fresh start, which means a new apartment, a new career, and…no men. But as a magnet for ridiculousness and absurd brushes with the law, her start goes from fresh to stale in record time. It doesn’t help that Mr. Wrong keeps showing up during her adventures gone awry and taking over. Now, as Kasey plans her way to independence she has to decide if the only path to success is going it alone...or if maybe a partner in crime can make the journey sweeter.
