She’s his best friend’s little sister. He’s the biggest player of them all.
They shouldn’t be together. But this summer’s just too tempting.
Sixteen-year-old Emilia Moretti’s goal for the summer is simple: forget her brother’s best friend—Nick Grawsky—ever existed. It should be easy: He’s spending his summer in the Hamptons, adding girls in tiny bikinis to his list of broken hearts. Guarantee he won’t be telling them they’re like his little sisters. This summer, Emilia won’t stay awake at night thinking about him. She’ll need flawless ballet movements to have a shot at next year’s showcase, and she’s finally ready to search for her birth parents. But when Nick decides to stay in the city, Emilia’s resolve disappears in a pirouette. Maybe it’s the spin they needed to be together. As long as she doesn’t get stuck believing in happily ever after…
Nick is tired of pretending to be the happy, let’s-have-fun guy. His father wants him to change his career from professional dancer to…lawyer. He needs to put all of his focus on dancing to prove to Daddy Dearest he’s good enough to make it big. And he may have a case of the bluest balls in history courtesy of Emilia. She’s off-limits: The bro code with Roberto even forbids the dirty thoughts he has about her. Besides, he’s not boyfriend material. He only has time for flings, for girls who don’t expect much, for girls he doesn’t want to kiss goodnight. He knows he should resist her, but he’s not sure he wants to…
At least for this summer.
It’s going to be a summer like no other.
SEE ME, Try as they might…
SEE ME NOT, Tessa and Luke can’t escape their pasts.
Six years ago, Tessa Gardner’s sister, Mellie, disappeared. Despite lingering guilt and the never ending desire to find her, seventeen-year-old Tessa works hard to keep it together. Her grades are decent, and thanks to her part-time job, she can help pay her family’s bills. But when her childhood crush, seventeen-year-old Luke Simon, rolls back into her small Texan town, he threatens to topple the delicate balance she created. She’s drawn to him—and the way he makes her smile. He’s the only one who seems to understand her, but he’s got a dark past of his own. Even the fake psychic who swears Mellie is still alive tells Tessa that Luke will cause her pain.
Luke Simon knows a thing or two about guilt. He moved in with his uncle to escape his past, but memories threaten to eat him alive. He does what he can to keep his anger in check—quieting his thoughts by making out with one meaningless girl after the next. Tessa, and her long legs and her hard-earned smiles and her kindness is the only girl who’s ever mattered. She’s the one untainted memory he has from his childhood and he could talk to her for hours. He could do anything with her for hours. But the truth about his past might send her running. Or worse.
While Tessa and Luke try their hardest to live in the present, their pasts lurk in the shadows, more intertwined than they could imagine. And it may be too late to save Tessa's sister—and themselves.
Sixteen-year-old Natalya Pushkaya has one dream and one dream only: becoming the best ballerina ever. Dancing's always been who she is and she's working her hardest to land the main role of the School of Performing Arts' end-of-the-year showcase.
But...will she make it?
Within a week, Natalya's life will be changed forever.

Sie ist die kleine Schwester seines besten Freundes. Er ist der größte Casanova von allen.
Sie sollten nicht zusammen sein. Aber dieser Sommer ist zu verlockend.
Das Ziel der 16jährigen Emilia Moretti für diesen Sommer ist einfach: vergessen, dass der beste Freund ihres Bruders – Nick Grawsky – je existierte. Aber als Nick beschließt, in der Stadt zu bleiben, verschwindet Emilia's Entschlossenheit in einer Pirouette. Vielleicht ist das der Anstoß, den beide brauchen, um zusammen zu sein. Solange sie nicht im Glauben an ein Happy End stecken bleiben…
Nick ist es leid so zu tun, als wäre er der glückliche Lass-uns-Spaß-haben Typ. Sein Vater möchte, dass er seine Karriere als Profitänzer aufgibt, um Anwalt zu werden. Und Emlia ist tabu: Der Bro-Code mit Roberto verbietet ihm sogar die schmutzigen Gedanken, die er über sie hat. Er weiß, er sollte ihr widerstehen, aber er ist sich nicht sicher, ob er das möchte…
Wenigstens für diesen Sommer.
Es wird ein Sommer wie kein anderer.

Last year, seventeen-year-old Natalya Pushkaya was attending the School of Performing Arts in New York City. Last year, she was well on her way to becoming a professional ballerina. Last year, her father was still alive.
But a car crash changed all that—and Natalya can’t stop blaming herself. Now, she goes to a regular high school in New Jersey; lives with her onetime prima ballerina, now alcoholic mother; and has no hope of a dance career.
At her new school, however, sexy soccer player Antonio sees a brighter future for Natalya, or at least a more pleasant present. Keeping him an arabesque away proves to be a challenge for Natalya and his patient charms eventually draw her out of her shell.
When upsetting secrets come to light and Tonio’s own problems draw her in, Natalya shuts down again, this time turning to alcohol herself.
Can Natalya learn to trust Antonio before she loses him—and destroys herself?
Seventeen-year-old ballerina Emilia Moretti is tired of always being second best. And she’s going to prove the world she deserves to be first. In her upcoming School of the Performing Arts showcase. In the eyes of her birth parents. And in the heart of the guy she loves. She spends hours rehearsing, hours dreaming about becoming number one, hours imagining how her entire life is about to change. But when nothing goes the way she planned, she’ll need to realize what it really means to be first.
Eighteen-year-old Nick Grawski doesn’t want to follow Daddy Dearest’s rules any longer. He's going to prove he's meant to be a dancer—not a lawyer—and he is not going to stay away from Em just because his father demands it. He needs to show Em that—this time around—he’s there to stay and that he won’t break her heart again. Even when her world goes down to shit, even when he finds out his dad may have been trying to protect him all along, even if being there for one another is harder than falling in love.
ALWAYS SECOND BEST is a novel of hope and heartbreak and broken dreams. It’s a novel about falling in love and discovering that being first isn’t always what matters.
Jusqu'à l'année dernière, Natalya n'avait qu'un seul but dans la vie : réussir son examen d'entrée dans une prestigieuse école de New York pour devenir danseuse étoile. Mais tous ses rêves ont été brisés quand son père est mort dans un accident de voiture.
Depuis, la jeune femme est rongée par la culpabilité et a du mal à progresser dans sa vie. Heureusement, elle rencontre Tonio, un séduisant footballeur. Le jeune homme est persuadé qu'elle peut encore devenir danseuse à condition de sortir de la déprime et de la souffrance. La patience et le charme du jeune sportif finissent par la faire sortir de sa coquille.
Mais Tonio a aussi ses secrets et ses problèmes qui risquent bien de faire sombrer un peu plus la jeune femme.
Le destin a réuni ces deux êtres blessés par la vie… avant de les éloigner ?
