Swimming was Brandon’s passion, the water his escape—but all of that ended when his workaholic father shifted his focus from business to training Brandon to become an Olympic champion. What Brandon once did for love is now a chore performed to stave off his controlling father’s criticism.
Brandon meets and falls in love with Tyler, a swimmer from another team. Despite their busy schedules, they find time together away from prying eyes, largely thanks to their friend Joel. But when Brandon comes out to his father, he finds himself on the street, taking shelter beneath a bridge. With the river nearby to practice in and protection from the rain, things aren’t so bad.
Then nature turns against him, and the resulting flood might be the one obstacle he can’t overcome.
Then some of Robby’s Aunt Ivy’s jewelry turns up missing, and Robby and Andy must investigate to discover who’s to blame.

International Bestselling Author Ava Miles’ new family series, The Merriams, is back with a good guy trying to get his bad boy on, a good girl starting a risky perfume venture, and everyone’s favorite matchmakers.
Beau Masters wants to be a bad boy.
All his life, he’s been careful to be the good guy country singer, the boy-next-door, who opens doors for ladies and says “aw, shucks, ma’am.” But a decades-old secret blows the hinges off the door to his life. Everything he thought he knew has scattered to the wind, leaving him questioning who he really is.
So when Caitlyn Merriam asks him to be the celebrity spokesperson for the new perfume she’s creating in far-off Provence, he swaps out his white cowboy hat for a black one and packs his bags to get away from the past.
Caitlyn didn’t expect the gorgeous rockstar to join her in her quaint farmhouse in the French countryside. She figures it will only worsen her crush on him. But as Beau tries to get his bad boy on (rather unsuccessfully, in her opinion), she knows something is wrong and calls in back-up. Uncle Arthur and Aunt Clara might be bent on matchmaking these days, but they know how to straighten someone out, and Caitlyn needs all the help she can get to keep her spokesperson on track.
But soon it’s not just about business, and they’re holding hands and walking the lavender fields together. Until Beau’s secret threatens to bring down her new venture and the love blossoming between them.

But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he's pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he's never met.

Plus don't miss Yes No Maybe So, Becky Albertalli's and Aisha Saeed's heartwarming and hilarious new novel, coming in 2020!
A few short months ago, Mark Mitchell was a shy nerdy kid who kept his head down and stayed off the radar. He had nothing in common with the in-crowd. But then he got snowed in with Bill Cromwell and learned not to judge a book by its cover. One thing led to another, and now Mark has a boyfriend. A popular boyfriend. A boyfriend who wants to go to prom with him. But Mark worries that Bill is risking too much—his popularity, his friends.
Then there’s graduation: caps, gowns, and a whole new world awaiting Mark and Bill in faraway California. They rent an apartment, join the workforce, start college. It’s the beginning of the journey of their lives, and they should be enjoying it—but amid uncertainty, temporary separations, and bad communication, Mark and Bill have to struggle to hold on to the fledgling relationship that grounds them when the outside world seems to move too fast.
