For years, our families have had one rule: We leave them alone. They leave us alone.
When Juno caught me scavenging for supplies in her family’s territory, I had no idea that the war between our two families was about to be pushed to the edge.
But she takes a chance on me. Trusts me. Lets me go.
Now there’s a greater threat to both sides. Someone’s stealing from my family, too.
And it’s up to me to find the thief before anyone else. Because if I can’t, both sides will blame each other. Rule broken. Game over. No one wins.
My only ally is Juno. The one girl I can’t be found with. The one girl who tempts me like no other. She’s the definition of off-limits. If our families knew how we look at each other, and kiss each other…
Star-crossed doesn’t even begin to describe our fate.

In Over Head Head: Lights, Camera, Anxiety (The Cecily Taylor Series #2) by Krysten Lindsay Hager Genre: YA Contemporary Fiction Release Date: September 3rd 2019 Clean Reads Publishing
Cecily feels like she has it all: great best friends, the beginnings of a career as a model/actress, and she’s dating her favorite singer, Andrew Holiday. Then Cecily’s best friend Lila begins to ditch her every time Lila’s boyfriend calls. Cecily feels lost, but she and Andrew begin connecting more and she’s never been in a relationship where she felt so understood. Andrew even begins to confide in her about his anxiety. Soon Cecily experiences her own anxiety on a magazine photo shoot, but she manages to impress the magazine staff. Just when it seems like all her dreams are coming true, everything comes crashing down when a photo of Andrew with another girl appears online. He swears nothing happened, but Cecily is crushed. She feels like she’s lost two of the people closest to her. Was her perfect relationship real or was she in over her head?
Cecily has always had a huge crush on singer Andrew Holiday and she wants to be an actress, so she tags along when her friend auditions for his new video. However, the director isn’t looking for an actress, but rather the girl next door—and so is Andrew. Cecily gets a part in the video and all of Andrew’s attention on the set. Her friend begins to see red and Cecily’s boyfriend is seeing green—as in major jealousy. A misunderstanding leaves Cecily and her boyfriend on the outs and Andrew hopes to pick up the pieces as he’s looking for someone more stable in his life than the models he’s dated. Soon Cecily begins to realize Andrew understands her more than her small-town boyfriend—but can her perfect love match really be her favorite rock star?

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
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!
