Simon King is totally secure in his relationship with Brady Bell. He’s totally over his family not accepting the fact that he’s gay. Seriously, screw them and their uptight, homophobic country club friends. He’s got his tribe and his best friend Will’s parents are the only ones he’ll ever need. He’s moved on, thank you very much.
But just one phone call will rip him right out of the perfect present back into the past and Simon will have to face the people who gave him their DNA but couldn’t give him their unconditional love. They say you can’t go home again, but Simon is going to have to.
Add to that the fact that all their friends are getting hitched and having babies and Brady seems to want to follow suit. Simon is definitely not ready for that and he’s not sure he ever will be. Between dealing with his family and dealing with the increasing pressure from Brady, Simon is at the end of his rope.
Will he be able to handle his parents and keep the love of his life at the same time? Or will everything he’s built fall completely apart?

Two years after her best friend was involved in a car accident that caused a traumatic brain injury, Lottie Anders is ready to start her freshman year of college. Ready to move on. Ready to start forgetting the night that ripped her life apart.
Her plans come to a screeching halt when not one, but both brothers responsible for the accident end up back in her life again.
Zack is cruel, selfish and constantly rubbing what happened to her friend in Lottie’s face.
Zan is different. He listens to her awkward ramblings. He loves “To Kill a Mockingbird” as much as she does, and his dark eyes are irresistible. His words are few and far between, but when he does speak, she can’t help but listen.
The trouble is, Zan was the driver in the accident, and now Lottie’s discovered he lied to her about what happened that night. Now she must decide if trusting him again will lead to real forgiveness, or deeper heartache.
Katie Hallman is done with douchebags. Done with guys who treat her like crap and leave her broken. But then Stryker Grant is there anyway. With his numerous piercings and bleached hair, he’s the polar opposite of all of her past relationships, which makes him the perfect candidate.
At first, Katie just sees him as a physical escape from her previous rocky relationship, and Stryker doesn’t seem to mind just being a distraction from Katie’s problems. But soon he’s getting under her skin, peeling back layers she’d rather keep covered. She tries to make it clear that she doesn’t want a relationship, but keeps breaking her own rules.
Then a tragedy sends Katie into the only arms that are there to catch her, and she’ll realize that she needs him more than she ever thought possible. But is she ready to let herself trust another guy with her already-battered heart? Or will she push him away to protect herself from getting hurt again?
Audrey Valdez didn’t mean to fall for Will Anders. He isn’t her type. At all. But his goofy smile, Star Wars quotes and athletic body make it impossible. She’s lived so long in the darkness and Will is like the sun. He makes her laugh more than she has in years and cares for her more than her own family.
But there are things about Audrey that Will doesn’t know, things he can’t know. She tries to push him away, but he just ends up getting closer to her, and to her secret. Is the risk of losing him forever worth the chance a being with the only person she’s ever loved who has loved her back?
Trish Grant is not a romantic. Okay, so she may read her share of romance novels, but that doesn’t mean she thinks that some fellow with a six pack is going to ride up on a horse and sweep her (literally) off her feet. Romance like that just isn’t for her. It belongs on the page.
Max Greene noticed Trish at his cousin’s funeral, of all places. She was hard to miss with her citrus-colored hair, violet contacts and fiery attitude.
Trish is just as captivated by Max. He makes her laugh, which is rare, and it doesn’t hurt that he rocks blue hair and isn’t put off by her resting bitch face.
On the outside, their relationship seems sweet and perfect, but that’s a lie. To say that Trish’s childhood was rocky is an understatement. She’s a mess of scars and hangups and is convinced that there’s no way Max is going to stick around. He’s determined to prove to Trish that she’s a girl worth loving, flaws and all.
Will she let Max in? Or will she give up her potential fairytale to protect her already-scarred heart from further damage?
