Stuck with You by Christina Mandelski
Publication Date: September 2, 2019
Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush
When Caleb Gray heads to the Texas coast to mentally prepare for a future he isn’t sure he wants, the last person he expects to see is Catie Dixon. Yeah, their mothers have been planning their wedding since they were born, but he and Catie are most definitely not friends. He can’t see her as anything but the annoying kid who followed him everywhere. Except, it’s really bothering him that everyone is staring at her in that bikini…
Catie got over her crush on Caleb ages ago. So why can’t she see past his ripped body or how unsettled he seems? She’s got her own problems, though. Her future has been set for years and now she’s dreaming of pulling the plug. A week at their families’ beach house is just what she needs to pull herself together, and she has no intention of letting Caleb back into her heart…which would be a whole lot easier if he’d put on a shirt.
But a forced week of togetherness full of beach parties, waterslide mishaps, bonfires, and roller coasters sparks more than an understanding. What do you do when the person standing in the way of your future is the one person you grew up hating…but now don’t?
Dear Reader (a note to your readers)
Thanks for stopping by! If you’re like me, you love a good love story and I think that’s what I’ve created in my latest YA novel, Stuck With You. Caleb and Catie were raised together. Their family co-owns a business as well as a beach house and their parents still joke about them getting married someday. Unfortunately, they could care less about each other and they don’t think the joke is funny.
With Caleb graduating from high school and Catie starting her senior year, they both have many changes ahead and neither of them are ready. To that end, Caleb goes to the beach house for a week of rest and relaxation. What he doesn’t realize is that Catie is already there, unbeknownst to her parents, with a few friends, to hang out, maybe meet some guys and chill.
Of course, there’s nothing chilly about what happens next. Despite their best efforts to avoid each other, their orbits can’t help but collide, and those collisions produce some heat!
I loved writing this book, set on the Gulf coast of Texas (and near my real life home of Houston). I loved hanging out with Catie and Caleb as they alternately fight then give in to their attraction and as they figure out their futures—together and apart. I hope you enjoy their story!
Thanks for having me on the blog!
