In this new adult romance, when a star baseball player and the girl next door collide, sparks fly.

As king of baseball in the small town of Lewis Creek, Eric Perry can have any girl he wants and win every game he plays. But when a fight lands him in jail, he's only got one more strike before his baseball career is over for good. His only chance for redemption? The girl next door, Bri Johnson.

Bri hasn't talked to Eric in months- for starters, she's been too busy dealing with her jerk of an ex-boyfriend, not to mention the fact that Eric's been preoccupied trying to drink every keg in the country dry. But when he needs a way to stay on the team, she proposes a plan: if he helps her out with community service, he can stay on the team. At first it's a nightmare-Eric and Bri stopped being friends years ago, surely that was for a good reason, right? But as volunteering turns to bonding over old memories of first kisses under the stars, they start to have trouble remembering what pushed them apart.

In a town as small as Lewis Creek, nothing stays secret for long and their friendship and romance might mean bad news. But in this final, tumultuous spring before graduation, Eric and Bri are about to realize that nobody's perfect alone, but they might just be perfect together.

Nolan Lennox had things figured out. Named after a baseball legend, she enjoyed being the Tomboy, her closet filled with her brother’s hand-me-downs, cut-off jeans and soccer shorts. But when her first trip to high school results in a broken heart from the first boy to ever make her heart flutter and cruel words from an older girl she once thought a family friend, Nolan starts to question the very person she thought she was and wonders if her humble upbringing can compete with the afforded luxuries of her privileged peers.

Throughout the next four years, Nolan struggles to maintain herself throughout her path of discovery, learning just how cruel teenagers can be through the pressures of underage drinking, sexuality and class. And despite how life seems to continue to work against her, she still manages to listen to her heart, falling deeper and deeper for the guy the entire town adores, even if he only sees her as a friend. Can Nolan strike a compromise between her own integrity and the boy she loves? And can she make him notice her before it’s too late?

Reed Johnson came to Coolidge High School with a lot of fanfare. The son of a hometown football legend and the brother of a local football hero, Reed wore all the pressures of carrying a town without hope into the spotlight. Thankfully, he had the talent to back it up. But when he meets a girl who makes him think twice about exactly what being a hero means, he starts to wonder if following in his brother’s footsteps might be all wrong. 

Nolan Lennox was everything that was opposite of expected. She didn’t flirt, she didn’t drink and she didn’t sleep around. Nothing about her was easy, but something about her made Reed want to try harder. Though she didn’t look the part, she seemed to be spending a lot of time in Reed’s thoughts, and he wondered if she could be the one who made it all worthwhile. But could Reed handle letting her down? And would breaking her heart break him beyond repair?

Waiting on the Sidelines explores young love to its fullest, exposing how real young heartbreak and passion is and how important it is to discover yourself and hold onto your own identity. The story follows two young characters as they deal with mature situations, including the prevalence of bullying and promiscuity in today’s high school setting. Ultimately, Waiting on the Sidelines is a story of hope, honesty and those powerful, first true loves—the ones worth holding onto at any cost. 

***This edition contains 2 ebooks: What My Heart Wants and Waiting For A Fall***

Did I miss a class growing up? You know the kind that teaches you how to deal with teenage heartache and maybe how to avoid it all together?


I could have used the advice.

Desperately.

Senior year wasn’t supposed to be like this for Annabelle Simms. Thanks to James, after having a crazy off/on relationship with him 
since school started, it’s been nothing but heartache central.

After confronting James and the popular crew in front of the entire school, things were about to get harder. If she had any hope of surviving the rest of her senior year in one piece, she’d have to ignore what her heart wanted and start listening to her head.

How many times could she say this was the last time before… it was too late?

Warning Contains Sexual Scenes
Recommended for ages 17+
This is not a standalone novel. Book 3 in Y.A Series

WAITING FOR A FALL 
Previously published as Young Annabelle Series: Young Annabelle, The Truth About James, What My Heart Wants (Books #1-3).
***Author's Cut Version***
***Warning contains strong language and sexual scenes***
***There is a HEA***

The first time I met James I thought he was an idiot. But the more time we spent together the more I realized that he was just as angry as I was. Him with his dad and me with my mom. He’s got me all twisted, messed up to a point where I barely recognize myself anymore. My best friend tells me to dump him. My parents don’t know he exists. But I can’t seem to stay away. When we’re alone it’s everything, but when we’re at school it’s like we don’t even exist, and I wish he’d tell me why. 

Already a star on the Royal Heights High School Baseball team, James Lawson wasn’t your average transfer student. Even with his ‘new guy’ status, he quickly becomes one of the popular ‘Kings’ at school and that alone should have been the red flag Annabelle needed to stay away from him. He’s arrogant, intense, rude and worst of all he seems like the kind of guy that usually gets what he wants. But the more time they spend together the more difficult she finds it to stay away from him, especially with all the stress her mother is causing her concerning her appearance. As if she didn't already have enough to worry about, she finds out that the popular ‘Queen’ of Royal Heights High had her sights set on a certain popular ‘King’. In Donna Tallins eyes, James was her perfect match, but there was one person standing in her way of high school couple stardom. And that was Annabelle.

"...Ms. Silk's uplifting stories pull you in and make you fall in love..." Elizabeth Lennox, Bestselling Romance Author

I received an advance copy of this book, and what an amazing opportunity that was granted to me by our super talented author Gloria Silk whose two previous books are still fresh in my romantic mind!

She deserves an honest review for this latest book From Geek to Greek Billionaire which is just as phenomenal as her other books!

A gripping story about young love torn by doubts, immaturity and insecurities — they were abruptly separated from their first romantic meeting, until fate played a great surprise —- meeting each other after almost a decade, both Olivia and Alexander experienced angst with twists and turns, their immature indecisions destroying first love that had beautifully blossomed inexplicably under magical circumstances!!!

I love the way the storyline weaves into an interracial romantic connection between an equally magnificent portrayal of beauteous and talented Olivia Moore, an American and Alexander Anderson whose joint family heritage has led them to a more wonderful relationship with the family, adoptive parents of Alexander whose biological parents are from Greece.

Following a complicated young lovers’ story like Olivia’s and Alexander’s strengthens my faith in fate and destiny! When there is true love, forgiveness and redemption are easier to refresh a fully sustained trust and confidence with the one person whom you truly meant to keep in your life!

With a magnificent and loveable romantic twist like a Cinderella fairytale Olivia has finally made a brilliant decision in keeping her Prince deeply close in her heart, forever—in following an epic love story like theirs, an avid romantic like me only has this to say “thanks for Gloria Silk’s brilliantly creative mind, we all enjoy to fantasize our own love story, living happily ever is my kind of New Year’s romantic mood!

Bitter sports rivalries and swoon-worthy romance intertwine, in Karole Cozzo’s classic enemies to lovers story where two former nemeses blur the lines between love and hate.

Eve is used to being the odd woman out. As the only girl on her school's baseball team, she knows exactly how to put sweaty, macho baseball players in their place, and she's learned to focus on one thing and one thing only—being the best pitcher she can be.

But when a freak accident forces her school to be absorbed by the neighboring town, Eve has to contend with a new group of guys who aren't used to having a woman on their team. And the new team's star pitcher, Jamie, has no interest in being ousted from his throne. He can't afford to give up his starting slot to a new pitcher—especially to a girl.

As the competition between Jamie and Eve starts to heat up, so does their attraction to each other. Can they keep their heads in the game, or will they end up getting played?

Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, The Game Can’t Love You Back follows Eve as she is forced to join a new baseball team and contend with the insufferable (and cute) rival pitcher.
