The Fear of Falling

By Amanda Cowen

When Ella Jones’ twenty-first birthday ends with a bang – literally – she never imagined it would be with her best friend since freshman year, Ryan Owen.

A year later, after their so called “mistake”, they’re still best friends and about to rock their Senior year at the University of San Francisco. But when Ryan returns from spending a summer in Australia and brings back a friend, Liam George, who takes an immediate liking to Ella, Ryan starts to question the Aussie’s intentions with his best friend. The trouble is, Ryan has a girlfriend of his own, and Ella and Ryan swore they would never cross that line again – until they do.

They try not to let their second slip up affect their friendship, but when Spring Break forces them to vacation under the same roof; and Ryan’s ex walks back into his life, Ella is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ella continues to see Liam, Ryan finds himself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship strained for the first time, Ella and Ryan face an alarming truth: Maybe they can’t be just friends. Maybe they are falling faster than expected. And maybe, deep down, they want to.

Lightning Boy

By Amy J. Heart

Lightning never strikes the same place twice. Unless he’s a boy called L.

My name is Eden and I only want one thing in life—and it isn’t to have sex with some guy I’ve never met in front of three creepy businessmen. But when dirty-copper Coop, who holds the deed to my family’s farm, says jump—I ask how high. And ex-street kid L is nothing like I expect him to be.

He’s so much worse.

Now I want three things.

My dad’s farm back.
To know why a guy as hot as L has never slept with a girl before.
Coop to die a painful death.

And there’s a fourth. Here’s a hint…
It starts with the letter L.
Just like this story does.

Is happy-ever-after possible when your meet-cute happens in front of three voyeurs in business suits?

NEW RELEASE! - Deal Takers

Deal Takers

By Laura Lee

MY DICK CAN BE A REAL BASTARD SOMETIMES.

When he takes charge, I’ve been known to do a lot of stupid shit, despite the fact that I have a genius IQ. Case in point: How I met the woman of my dreams.

Now, I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I don’t regret that moment of idiocy one bit. It may have been one of the most embarrassing moments of my life, but you know what they say about first impressions, right? Well, I can guarantee that I made quite the impression that evening. (Don’t worry; I’ll tell you all the gory details later.)

Most days, she acts like she hates me—probably because I behave like an ass— but we both know the truth: Rainey O’Neil wants me just as much as I want her—she just doesn’t want to admit it.

Good thing I’ve never been one to back down from a challenge.

*Deal Takers is the second installment in the Dealing with Love world but can be read as a standalone.

KIDS-DAY FRI-YAY! - Lex

Lex

By Dimitris Chatzilias

Lex decides to enter the forest for the first time and discover all the secrets that are hidden in it. Apart from new places, events and creatures, Lex, accompanied by his oak tree friend, explores personal limitations, causes of behaviors, interactions with the environment and people around him, the value of respect in these interactions and, most importantly, the meaning of freedom, which is the central subject of the book. Their roaming is a course towards adulthood and independence through questioning, healthy disobedience and critical thinking. Although the story gives the chance for a deeper level of interpretation for older children, it remains a fun and adventurous read for all ages. Without being heavy or instructional, the book's main goal is to trigger critical thought and constructive conversations; to let Lex's discoveries during his roaming be perceived in a free and personal way by each reader. To inspire children who are just taking their first steps in life with the joy of spreading their own wings and taking their future into their own hands, and also to remind older readers of the excitement of constant exploration, one of the most important ingredients in a joyful life.
