JUST FOR NOW
Glines delivers yet another stunning new adult novel, continuing to include characters from previous books while still crafting a true stand-alone title. You’ll love the way Glines yet again tackles tough issues with plenty of heart — and heat.
Amanda’s been crushing on her older brother’s best friend since she was 16. Preston’s a bad boy, but through his friendship with her brother, Marcus, Amanda’s seen his better side. Now if only he would see her as something other than his best friend’s kid sister. When Amanda persuades a very drunk Preston to hook up with her one disastrous night, she’s convinced his anger afterward means he’s repulsed by her. Ashamed of his actions, and believing she deserves better, Preston withdraws from Amanda. Yet their paths continue to collide because of Marcus and Willow’s upcoming nuptials. Secrets and criticism from their social circle test these star-crossed lovers. (SIMON PULSE, Sep., 336 pp., $9.99, ISBN: 9781442488601, PB, 18 & Up)
