1/25 – Choices by Michelle Lynn

ChoicesHappiness is something you have to choose again and again, each day.

Michaela Matthews wants that more than anything. Standing in her way is a family pushing her down a specific path and the man she loves preventing her from choosing anything different. When she moves to the city for the next step in her parent’s plan, she starts to figure out what she wants – or more importantly, what she doesn’t want.

Jason Marks has had the kind of life where things have seemed to just happen to him, no choice involved at all. He is a business owner, surrounded by people that love him. But, he isn’t in love. He’s not even sure he believes in it. Not anymore. At least, not until a heartbroken girl falls apart in his arms. It’s enough to make him a believer. Make him a dreamer. Enough to force him to answer that question. Do you give all of yourself to someone who might not choose you in return?

Yes. Yes, you do.

1/28 – Catchpenny by Sarah Wathen

CatchpennyMeg Shannon was rarely surprised. She was an independent, self-confident, intelligent young woman, and she’d stopped caring about the labels people born on the “right” side of the tracks in Shirley County slapped on her.

So when quarterback Tristan Jameson walked up to her at lunch and flat out asked her to Homecoming, she refused to be surprised then either.  But he seemed nervous, as if he truly cared what her answer would be. Maybe, just maybe…he actually liked her.

But to believe that would be dangerous. Raise the stakes. Sure, Meg was brave, but was she willing to risk everything?

Sarah Wathen’s edgy, fast-paced serial novel is finally released in its complete form, with a new epilogue never before published!

Genre: YA/Romance
