Let’s get started on this tour. throws around hearts

Debut author Alex Evansley delivers a sweet summer romance in this inventive novel about a young heartthrob and teen author falling in love.

Teddy Sharpe is kind of famous. He might actually be on his way to being really famous, especially if he’d nailed an audition for the lead role in the movie adaption of the newest bestselling young adult book series. There’s just one problem: He totally blew the audition. And he’s stuck in a tiny North Carolina airport. And his maybe-ex-girlfriend kind of just broke up with him.

The weekend isn’t exactly looking good until Bennett Caldwell, author of the very book series he just auditioned for, takes pity on him and invites him to her family’s lake house. Away from the glitz and glam of Hollywood for a few days, Teddy starts to relax . . . and somehow he and Bennett just click. But dating is hard enough when you aren’t the subject of several dozen fanblogs, and the Internet is full of juicy gossip about Teddy and Bennett . . . gossip that Bennett might not be prepared to handle.

Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, Alex Evansley’s debut novel, written from both Bennett and Teddy’s perspectives, will have teens laughing, swooning, and falling in love along with these fantastically relatable characters.

Excerpt time!

The Caldwells’ house looks like it’s straight out of one of those home and garden magazines Teddy’s mom keeps around his parents’ house. It’s all white brick and dark shutters, with stairs on the right side leading up to what Teddy assumes is a back deck with a great view, seeing as the lake they live on comes right up into their backyard.

Bennett shoulders open her car door and hops out; Teddy follows, meeting her at the trunk to grab their bags. She has the liftgate open and is reaching for her rolling suitcase by the time he gets there, and regardless of the unsettled feeling lingering in his stomach over Chelsea, Teddy at least remembers his manners.

“Here, I’ll get those,” he says, reaching for her luggage. He accidentally bumps into her as he leans in, and he pretends not to notice the way she jumps and steps sideways to give him more room.

“Thanks,” Bennett says to the driveway, hiding behind her hat.

“No problem.” Teddy straightens up and sets both of their rolling bags on the ground.

“I can get mine,” she offers. Teddy’s still fumbling with both telescoping handles, but he manages to steer hers out of reach. “Hey—what kind of houseguest would I be if I made you carry your own luggage?” he asks, wanting to pump some of the easiness between them earlier into whatever’s settled around them now. Bennett smiles but seems distracted, which in turn distracts Teddy.

She shuts the liftgate and locks her car, then falls into step next to him on their way up the driveway. They walk to the deck stairs off the side of the house instead of the front door.

“Just a heads up, my family might be surprised to see you,” she says quietly. “You’re probably going to get bombarded with questions.”

Teddy glances over and shrugs. He can handle questions. Occupational hazard.
