Cover Breakdown: When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill

YA authoress Liz Czukas is switching gears and donning a new name for her next literary venture. Writing as Ellie Cahill, she's diving into New Adult territory with her upcoming release, When Joss Met Matt, a refreshing and fun-sounding story that plays with the familiar theme of "friends with benefits". Admittedly, the wait for its February 24, 2015 release date is rather unbearable. Luckily, though, the cover was recently released and to get us even more excited, we're giving it our Cover Breakdown treatment. Here we go!

Ellie Cahill is poised to coin the term “sorbet sex” with her charming twist on the age-old ‘friends-with-benefits’ story.

Dating can be fun, but it can leave a nasty taste in your mouth. For Joss, ever since her longtime boyfriend cheated on her, she doesn’t want her last memory of a guy to be that jerk. Enter her college friend, Matt. They come up with a theory: after a bad break-up, a person needs to cleanse the palate with a little sorbet sex. Lovers for a night, but always back to being friends in the morning. The two can handle it because they have a contract: rules they wrote, rules they follow and rules they can sometimes bend. The arrangement works: everyone needs a little sorbet now and again … until it starts to be the only thing you want. And then Joss breaks the one rule they never wrote down: don’t fall in love.
