    Hate Notes by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

    #1 AMAZON BESTSELLER

    Release Date: November 6, 2018

    Synopsis:

    Amazon’s #1 Most Unputdownable Book of the Year.

    An Amazon Charts bestseller.

    A Wall Street Journal bestseller.

    A Washington Post bestseller.

    From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes an unexpected love story of secondhand hearts and second chances

    It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress.

    Something blue.

    I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.”

    Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true.

    The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed.

    He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result in a happily ever after.

    But that story is nothing compared to the one unfolding between us. It’s getting hotter, sweeter, and more surprising than anything I could have imagined.

    Something new.

    But I have no idea how this one is going to end…

    Release Date: November 1, 2018

    Synopsis:

    Briggs,

    Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn't know was that I was breaking mine too.

    I thought they’d be enough–my husband and my son. That I’d get home and everything would go back to the way it was . . .

    Before the war.

    Before the ambush.

    Before you.

    But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.

    The truth is I’m lost without you.

    I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.

    I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .

    All my love,

    Scottie

    Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland

    NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY and WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER!

    Release Date: January 15, 2018

    Synopsis:

    From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

    My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

    We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

    I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

    We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

    I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

    I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

    Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

    Nothing, I thought.

    It’s just sex, not love.

    But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

    Release Date: February 13, 2018

    Synopsis:

    From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

    Growing up, the three of us were friends.

    He was the nerd.

    I was the playboy.

    She was the beauty.

    Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

    He lied.

    I went off to college, and he got the girl.

    Amber never knew how I felt.

    They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

    Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.

    When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

    Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.

    One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.

    Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.

    Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.

    She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

    Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.

    When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

    They're two sharks in a fish tank...

    JARED

    If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat...

    The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.

    Her anger is... arousing.

    Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth, gets me... well, you know.

    If I had a dollar for every time she's put me in my place, I'd be an even richer man.

    I'm a successful sports agent because I assume "no" means you'll think about it.

    I'm sure what you meant to say is "Coming right up.”

    They say even rich men don't always get what they want, but those men don't know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.

    Take Banner. She assumes she's winning, but this game?

    She doesn't even know how to play.

    BANNER

    If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.

    One night. One epic fail. One dollar... and I'm out.

    I've moved on.

    I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.

    Anything they can do, I have done better.

    They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.

    And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?

    Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.

    I'll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.

    Oh, I didn't say the struggle wasn't real.

    But I've got that one dollar, and Jared won't have me.

    Or will she discover the only truth that matters?

    Epoch pushes the boundaries of what we believe and what we know. It redefines fate and proves that the only thing separating the heart and the soul is an infinite timeline.

    Synopsis:

    “What do you do when you meet your soul mate? No wait…that’s too easy. What do you do when you meet your soul mate and have to spend a lifetime loving him in secret?

    I’ll tell you what you do.

    You lie.”

    REN

    Ren was eight when he learned that love doesn’t exist—that the one person who was supposed to adore him only cared how much he was worth.

    His mother sold him and for two years, he lived in terror.

    But then…he ran.

    He thought he’d run on his own. Turned out, he took something of theirs by accident and it became the one thing he never wanted and the only thing he ever needed.

    DELLA

    I was young when I fell in love with him, when he switched from my world to my everything.

    My parents bought him for cheap labour, just like they had with many other kids, and he had the scars to prove it.

    At the start, he hated me, and I could understand why.

    For years he was my worst enemy, fiercest protector, and dearest friend.

    But by the end…he loved me.

    The only problem was, he loved me in an entirely different way to the way I loved him.

    And slowly, my secret drove us apart.

    The Girl & Her Ren Synopsis:

    “What do you do when you write down all your secrets? No…that’s not enough. What do you do when you write down all your secrets and the one person who should never read them does?

    I’ll tell you what you do.

    You hope.”

    REN

    Ren didn’t know the meaning of love until he took Della for his own.

    To begin with he hated her, but as the months bled into years, he learned the opposite of hate, dedicating his life to giving her everything.

    Every sacrifice, every gift, he gave wholeheartedly.

    But then love turned to lust and ruined everything.

    DELLA

    I was stupid to write my secrets down, but I’d been stupid before so it was nothing new.

    I couldn’t blame him, hate him, fix him.

    I tried to move on without him.

    But no matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to delete the secrets I’d written.

    Until something happened.

    Until he came back and read my stupid secrets.

    And nothing was the same after that.

    Release Date: August 27, 2018

    From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

    We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

    Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.

    Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

    From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.

    She was an addiction.

    At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.

    Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.

    But I couldn’t really have her.

    I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

    So I took a chance.

    And that was when our love story really began.

    I thought he'd always be mine,

    even when I was forced to say goodbye.

    We were never meant to let go,

    He'd forgotten all about his.

    Not only had he moved on, but the person he'd moved on with was my best friend, leaving me to begin college with a broken heart.

    I guess this is the part where I’m supposed to tell you some other guy stepped in, repaired my shattered pieces, and made me smile again.

    A sizzling standalone contemporary romance by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

    It was supposed to just be a quick trip to Manhattan.

    My best friend was heartbroken. She needed support, and I needed inspiration.

    I hoped to love the city. Bustling. Crazy. Inspiring New York.

    But I ended up at the airport, heading home in the same condition that I arrived.

    In a rut.

    Add to all that, missing my flight and losing my laptop—the laptop, where the Best Love Story Ever sat on my hard drive.

    Enter Noah Steele. Eerily familiar. Movie star. Heartthrob. Sultry romeo with bedroom eyes.

    (But we're not going there.)

    He missed his flight too.

    Noah is so smoldering, lip-bitingly hot, he's not taken seriously as an actor, and is struggling to launch his career in New York.

    He's only ever had superficial girlfriends, so he's having trouble showing true passion in his acting—the same challenge I’m having with this book.

    When we met, we didn't know that our connection would bring us the change we’d been craving.

    That we’d be the very thing the other needed and didn't know.

    Each other's muse.

    The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

    USA TODAY BESTSELLER!

    Release Date: June 5, 2018

    Synopsis:

    A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there's not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.

    Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases — a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.

    It doesn't help that Stella has Asperger's and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice — with a professional.

    Synopsis:

    From New York Times bestselling author, Corinne Michaels, comes a new heartwarming standalone romance.

    I’m getting really good at cutting my losses.

    First, the husband. Divorcing him was the best decision I ever made. But between single-parenting and job-hunting, I can’t catch my breath. When a celebrity blogging position falls into my lap, I’m determined to succeed.

    That is, until I get my first assignment and actually see Noah Frazier for the first time . . . practically naked and dripping wet. My heart races and I forget how to form complete sentences. His chiseled abs, irresistible smirk, and crystal blue eyes are too perfect to be real. So, what do I do? Get drunk and humiliate myself, of course.

    I’m ready to forget the awkward night, yet Noah has no intention of allowing me to move on. Instead, he arranges for me to write a feature on him, ensuring a lot more time together. One embarrassing moment after another, one kiss after another, and before I can stop myself, I realize—I’m falling in love with him.

    But when the unthinkable happens, can I even blame him for cutting his losses?

    What He Doesn't Know (Book 1) Release Date: March 15, 2018

    What He Always Knew (Book #2) Release Date: March 29, 2018

    Synopsis: What He Doesn't Know

    On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

    The house was once magical, filled with love and joy and plans for the future.

    Inside its walls are many things that belong to me — my books, the china from my mother on my wedding day, the beautiful cage once home to two birds, now empty, just like me.

    And a man.

    A man who also belongs to me.

    A man I no longer wish to keep.

    A man who, no doubt, has not slept, though the sun is rising. Because the house where he waits is where I laid my head to rest every night for eight years. Until last night.

    No one who knows me would believe Charlie Pierce, the quiet, bookish girl who never made waves is pulling out of the driveway of a man who isn’t her husband.

    But they don’t know me at all.

    I don’t even know me.

    Not anymore.

    They say there are two sides to every story, and I suppose in most cases, that’s true. But the one I live inside of? It has three.

    On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

    But there is no longer a home.

    What He Always Knew Synopsis:

    THE EPIC FINALE IN THE WHAT HE DOESN'T KNOW DUET

    Left or right.

    It’s that simple, and it isn’t simple at all.

    If I turn left, the road will lead me back to the man I promised my life to, the one I’d imagined building a family with, the one who’s done everything in his power to get me back.

    If I turn right, the road will take me to the man I loved first, the man who brought me back to life, the man who would do anything to keep me.

    I knew the fork in the road was inevitable; it was the decision I never wanted to make between choices I didn't know I had.

    And I love them both.

    My heart is destined to exist in two equal halves — one with each man. But one half beats stronger, the vein running deepest, and holds my choice in silence long before I know it for myself.

    The realization of what I have to do, of the heart I have to break, just might break mine too.

    Left or right.

    All I have to do is take a breath and turn.

    Synopsis:

    Her father is The King of England.

    She is The Controversial Princess.

    Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by The King, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors - lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to The King’s demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline’s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated.

    That is until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defenses overwhelms her - his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she’s otherwise slowly drowning. However, while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he’s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows The King and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart.

    But Josh Jameson becomes the princess’s ultimate vice.

    And although she bows to no one, she bows to him.

    His True Queen Synopsis:

    The breathtaking conclusion of The Smoke & Mirrors Duology.

    A beautiful, defiant princess. A renowned, sinfully gorgeous Hollywood actor.

    A love affair that is sure to rock the British Monarchy…and the world.

    Their love affair began intensely and passionately. Princess Adeline and Josh Jameson knew any future together was impossible—her status as a princess and his standing as a Hollywood heartthrob dictated that. But the heights of pleasure they could take each other to were wildly unanticipated by them both. Josh’s absolute disregard for Adeline’s status quickly drew her into his hedonistic world. And her perfectly worn mask and false façade captivated Josh to the point of obsession. The boundaries became blurred. The physical became emotional. Their hearts became entwined.

    But a cruel turn of events rips their worlds apart and Adeline is more bound than ever by the protocol and expectations her title commands. The army of royal advisors who guard the secrets and scandals of the Monarchy will go to unthinkable lengths to keep the smoke and mirrors in place…and Josh away from Adeline. She knows the power she possesses comes with agonizing sacrifices. Walking away from Josh devastates her…but it keeps him safe from the corrupt institution that has ruled her life.

    Yet Josh refuses to lose the woman who has consumed him so completely, distorted his boundaries, and stripped him of all sensibility.

    Will the power of the British Monarchy triumph? Or will their fierce love for each other change the course of history?

    A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy

    Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.

    And that his best friend has a crush on me.

    And that I just moved in with them.

    Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

    I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?

    He knows where to find me.

The gentleness and beauty of his soul that speaks directly to mine. He writes as if he can feel my heart, hear its cadence and compose the exact right lyrics to accompany every beat and flow.

    I’m in love with Connor…so why do I feel an inexplicable pull to his best friend, Weston? Grouchy, sullen, brooding Weston Turner, who could cut you down with a look. Fiercely intelligent with a razor sharp wit and acid tongue, he’s the exact opposite of Connor in every way, and yet there’s electricity in the air between us. The thorny barbs Weston wraps around himself can’t keep me away.

    But the more time I spend with these men, the more tangled and confused my emotions become.

    Graham was born to be a star.

    Once upon a time, that star shone only for me.

    He promises this time will be different. But I’m afraid to believe him.

    Because behind his star’s blinding brilliance is a darkness that doesn’t want to let him go.

    I know a star that bright can’t belong to just one person, but my jealous heart doesn’t want to share him.

    I want all of him . . . even if wanting what doesn't belong to me leads me to ruin.

    Craving Mr. Kinky by A.M. Madden & Joanne Schwehm

    Release Date: June 20, 2018

    Synopsis:

    Here’s a tip: When you least expect it, expect it.

    I’d been known to have my share of beautiful women. Usually, I met them in a bar, through a mutual acquaintance, or even when photographing them. Imagine my surprise when a gorgeous blonde drove her car into mine on the way to a party.

    No more than a minute after our run-in, a string of colorful words flew from her mouth in rapid fire. Unexplainably, the angrier she became the harder I got. All sorts of scenarios played in my head of how I could get her to shut up. I was all for feisty women, but I preferred leaving that for the bedroom—not on the streets of New York.

    When I learned she was a school teacher, that worsened my disposition. What man didn’t have a dirty teacher fantasy at one point in his life? I decided it was my turn to teach her a thing or two… or so I thought. Little did I know, Miss Prim-and-Proper would turn the tables on me.

    She called me Mr. Kinky, and that was fine with me.

    Lesson learned: Desire always trumps logic.

    Synopsis:

    Bestselling author BB Easton takes you behind the velvet rope in this whirlwind rock star romance based on true events.

    In 1999, I met my Prince Charming. He was the tall, tattooed, wickedly handsome bass player for the up-and-coming rock band, Phantom Limb. But, more importantly, he was mine. I knew it the moment he flashed me that shy, dimpled smile.

    And he knew it too.

    Hansel “Hans” Oppenheimer wore his heart on one sleeve and scrawled lyrics about me on the other. Unlike the losers of my past, Hans showered me with tenderness, took me places I’d never been before, and showed me the type of all-consuming love I’d thought only existed in fairy tales.

    But, like any good fairy tale, my road to happily ever after was paved with challenges, and right when I least expected it…it forked.

    In 1999, I met my Prince Charming.

    In 2000, I met my soul mate.

    Synopsis:

    Bestselling author BB Easton returns with the hilarious, heartwarming tale of how she finally got over her bad boy phase and found happily ever after with…gasp…a guy in a tie.

    “Since when are you into guys in ties? You only like guys who look like they rob guys in ties. At gunpoint.”

    It was true. By 2003, my type had been well-established. There might as well have been a giant sign on my heart that said, “Good Guys Need Not Apply.”

    Which is exactly why I had to friendzone Ken Easton. The man was a former football star, smelled like fresh laundry instead of stale cigarettes, and had more ties in his closet than tattoos on his knuckles. Pssh. BOR-ING.

    But the more I got to know my hunky study buddy, the more questions I came away with. Questions like, why doesn’t he date? Why does he avoid human touch? Why does he hate all things fun and wonderful? The psychology student in me became obsessed with getting inside Ken’s head, while the spoiled brat in me became obsessed with getting inside his heart.

    In 2003, I found the one thing I love more than bad boys…

    A good challenge.

    SUIT is Book 4 in the 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN spin-off series but can be read as a complete standalone.

    Respect by Aleatha Romig

    Release Date: January 23, 2018

    Synopsis:

    The Godfather meets Love Story...

    From New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a stand-alone novel spin-off from her beloved Infidelity series. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic romantic thriller will delve into a world where family takes on new meaning, and even the inhabitants are suspicious of the next chapter.

    "Standing at what I believe is the precipice of my life, I, Oren Demetri, was too young to understand that it wasn't and too old to imagine that it couldn't be.

    The already hefty accumulation of my successes and failures, bravery and fears, and rewards and suffering, had brought me to this point. It was hard to contemplate the things I'd done, and yet, in reality I'd only begun to learn the possibilities.

    I suppose that's how it was for me at twenty-nine years of age on the brink of all I'd ever wanted without fully realizing the price I would pay. Yet in that moment, I knew there would be no cost too great or sacrifice I wouldn't make. I had no idea how far-reaching that moment of self-discovery would be; because as the congregation's murmurs quieted, bleeding into silence and allowing the thump of my heart to be the only sound I heard, I was a man filled with love and adoration, emotions in stark contrast to those I needed in the world I'd built or the one I was about to enter.

    Angelina Costello was my dream and now my reality. I'd worked diligently to move beyond the actuality of being a dockworker's son to becoming a self-made, successful entrepreneur, all in an effort to earn the right to call her my own. I'd overcome servitude to others, collecting their paychecks and lowly praises, to being the one who signed the paychecks and offered the accolades when they were rightfully earned.

    The world was my oyster and walking toward me on the arm of her uncle was my pearl. I'd found her amongst the empty shells life had offered. There was no need to pry open another possibility. Angelina was all I wanted. Yet my path was uncharted. There was more for me to earn, lose, and willingly give.

    The top of that list was respect."

    This stand-alone novel takes place before the Infidelity series and may be read BEFORE, AFTER, or APART from the Infidelity series.

That Hot Dad contest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job.

    But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell?

    Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen.

    But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles.

    But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life.

    And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?

    From the author of The New York Times best-selling Marriage Games comes a deeply intense and sexy series.

    Everything is going to be perfect.

    Greyson comes home from deployment to live the life she and her husband Caden dreamed of. He has a surgical residency, and she has a psychiatric practice in the basement of their Manhattan brownstone.

    Everything is going to be fine.

    Caden loves his wife more than he can measure. But soon after she comes home, he starts hearing whispers. Someone else loves her. Someone else wants her. There's someone else, and though whoever's behind the whispers will move mountains to have her, Caden will move heaven and earth to keep her.

    Everything is going to hell.

    Greyson will never break her vows, even as their marriage snaps apart one piece at a time; even as the line between dreams and reality blurs. Even as Caden demands control, and Greyson cedes it, she will never, ever turn her back on him.

    When their marriage crumbles, love becomes the one thing holding them together.

    His world was water and rhythm. Hard work and drive kept Royal O'Connell one step ahead of his competition. His spot on the swim team, keeping his scholarship, was the only plan that mattered.

    His world was ebony and ivory. Natural talent and ambition set Camden Morgan apart from the other music majors. His dedication scoring him a full ride.

    Normally, their paths would have never crossed….

    But when Royal meets his best friend's new roommate, his big plan and Camden’s controlled environment faces a variable that could destroy it all.

    Attraction.

    The world they live in had no room for error. That undeniable pull between them was dangerous and neither one of them could've prepared for the choice they'd have to make.

    Love isn't always an easy road and, when everything they've worked for is on the line, they'll have to decide if being together is worth the risk.
