Summary
from Goodreads:


Senior Year. 



Middle of nowhere. 



What's the new girl to do?



For Piper Marks, the answer is simple. She’s determined to have her photography
rock the cover of National Geographic someday, and moving to Clarkton, Iowa for
her last year of high school is not going to stop her. Even if her usual subjects
have changed from bright lights and skyscrapers to fields, cows…and more
fields. 




But when photographer at the local paper quits in a huff, she steps into his
spot. Her new job keeps Piper busy capturing tackles, and zooming in on first
downs and end zone dances, not to mention putting her directly in the path of
varsity football star Les Williams IV. Her new friends warn her off, but she
can’t resist the pull she feels toward this mysterious country boy. But this
small town is keeping a secret, and it’s one that could destroy any chance they
have to be together. 




It’s up to Piper to decide what to do with the distorted truth. Can she risk
exposing her heart? It might be worth it, 'cause Les is about to change her
world from black and white to fully saturated color.

Summary from Goodreads:

“Edgy and honest, Faking Perfect is the real thing.” –Huntley Fitzpatrick

When Lexi Shaw seduced Oakfield High's resident bad boy Tyler Flynn at the beginning of senior year, he seemed perfectly okay with her rules:

1. Avoid her at school.
2. Keep his mouth shut about what they do together.
3. Never tease her about her friend (and unrequited crush) Ben.

Because with his integrity and values and golden boy looks, Ben can never find out about what she’s been doing behind closed doors with Tyler. Or that her mom’s too busy drinking and chasing losers to pay the bills. Or that Lexi’s dad hasn’t been a part of her life for the last thirteen years. But with Tyler suddenly breaking the rules, Ben asking her out, and her dad back in the picture, how long will she be able to go on faking perfect?

Stick in the Mud meets spontaneity

Stick in the Mud Meets Spontaneity (Meet Your Match #3) by Rachael Anderson
Home from college for the summer, Samantha Kinsey steps into her role as nanny for her two favorite little charges. But when she finds herself playing chauffeur more than playmate, her summer outlook quickly turns from fun to bleak. That is, until she drives the girls to a family-owned ranch and meets Colten McCoy—a genuine, hard-working cowboy, who's as set in his ways as he is handsome. Although he claims he doesn't need any fun in his life, Sam’s determined to help him find it. But she'll soon discover that cowboys are about as easy to train as wild mustangs.

Stick in the Mud Meets Spontaneity is about an adaptable girl and a not so adaptable guy. It’s about learning to accept people for who they are and realizing that sometimes who they are is exactly who they should be.

Synopsis

One night connected them.

One decision separated them.

One craving tempted them.

Ashlyn Hart was done with men, or at least those

outside of her books. After stupidly falling for the charms of her cheating ex and

having her heart broken yet again, she decided to create a new life. One that

involved a career change, a new wardrobe, and the possibility of moving abroad.

There was just one hurdle: the confident, stubborn and insanely-tempting Josh

Crawford.


Josh Crawford hid behind the cliché bachelor

lifestyle and a never-ending parade of women. He knew the game and played it well,

but the night he tasted perfection four years ago never left him. Back then, he made

a spur of the moment decision, one that he has battled with ever since. But beneath

the playboy façade was a yearning that wouldn’t disappear. A craving for the only

woman who could bring him to his knees: Ashlyn Hart.


Two weeks changes everything.

One night unravels the deepest of desires.

A simple taste unleashes memories that can’t be

tamed.


When the girl who dreams of a happily ever after

collides with the guy who lives the ultimate cliffhanger, what ending awaits them?

Will fear overshadow love? Will the past play hindrance to the future, or will

temptation conquer it all?

Soulspark Book Highlight



Title: Soulspark

Author: Eliza Tilton

Genre: YA, Romance

Publication: May 2015









Dealing with the loss of her mother, seventeen-year-old Jessica Stone tries to find an escape from the pain by secretly medicating herself with Xanax, but the anxiety increases, crushing her and her grades.



Then she meets Caleb Jonas, the pastor’s son at her mother’s church. Between his cute dimples and love of fast cars, Jessica is completely smitten, and the feeling is mutual. But dating a Christian boy isn’t easy. He doesn’t party, and he never goes past first base. Jessica struggles with his faith, since it makes her question her own, but for the first time since her mother’s death, she can breathe. Life is finally shifting into a state of happiness.



But that happiness shatters when Jessica catches Caleb kissing her ex-best friend—and step-brother’s girlfriend—Rachel, the girl who used to be like her sister, and the same girl who betrayed her once before.



While her stepbrother hints at a deeper connection between the two, Caleb insists it was a one-time mistake and begs forgiveness. With contradicting stories coming at her, Jessica isn’t sure who to believe, but sometimes the truth is better left undiscovered and she’s about to find out why.

When
he spoke, his gaze traveled all the way to my toes. He reached over and pushed
one of my flyaway curls behind my ear. “Counting keeps my mind busy.”

Butterflies
more potent than first day jitters fluttered in my stomach. “Busy from what?”

His
lips curled into a grin. “Thinking of you.”

He
said it like thinking of me was the most dangerous thing in the world.

Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me.

I
shut my eyes and savored each precious touch of his lips. He snaked his hand
around my neck, gently brushing it. Every piece of my soul connected to his.
When Caleb's lips were on mine, his hands circling my body, the world could
explode and I would still be safe.
