“Okay, a few days before Christmas, before too many presents got put under the tree, I used to sneak downstairs in the middle of the night. I would plug in the tree and lie down underneath it and look up. All you could see were branches and lights. I would play Nutcracker music and just stare at the twinkling lights, memorizing they way they glimmered. I would lie there for what seemed like hours and nothing could touch me.”
-Sadie Vaughn, Every Beat

Every Beat, Amazon-
Every Beat, Barnes & Noble-

Sadie Vaughn knows all about heartbreak. Her heart is so fractured that she has walls built up around it thick enough to keep everyone out, which means at least she won’t get hurt again. When her roommate, Henley, takes her on a tour of her new campus, Sadie literally falls into the arms of a devastatingly handsome stranger. She tries to ignore the feelings that have been awakened in her, but when she meets him again, she realizes she’s losing the battle. To make matters worse, the brooding boy in the back row of her literature class stops her heart and makes it beat faster at the same time, even when he completely ignores her. She had all intentions of focusing on her studies and refusing relationships, but she finds herself in situations where she is unable to help herself. Her past may have created the fears, but now she must decide if she is going to face them.

Every Choice, Amazon-

Red is everywhere.
Not just red, blood.
Blood is everywhere.
It is all over me.

Cassie Whitlock has relived that day countless times in her dreams for the past four years. It left more than just physical scars, it has caused her to close herself off to everyone. She no longer believes in love. Love only ends in pain.
That’s why when she meets Luca, she is surprised by the immediate and undeniable attraction between them. She doesn’t want complicated and she knows he’s about to make everything complicated. As their lives become more intertwined, it becomes harder to hide her secrets, and harder to resist him, but when she discovers he has secrets of his own, she begins to question everything. Cassie has to make a choice: hold on to the ghosts of her past or be brave enough to imagine a future.

Every Chance, Amazon-

I am in love.
I am totally and completely, head over heels in love.
And he has no freaking idea.
Boys are stupid.

Rosie Collins has loved Gavin ever since he wandered into her café stumbling and drunk over a broken heart. The chance encounter begins a deep friendship between the two with only one problem: Rosie is in love with Gavin and Gavin is in love with his ex-girlfriend. A drunken kiss one night opens up a door of new possibilities and a future away from heartache for both of them; they just have to be ready to let go of the past in order to have it. When tragedy strikes, Rosie is forced to examine how short life is and if she really has room in her heart for Gavin, who may just not be able to put her first.

Once you lose the love of your life, do you get a second chance?
