To celebrate I got an excerpt, a giveaway, and book/author information!

And I want to congratulate the author on their book releasing in the wild, congrats! Hip hip hooray! throws more glitter around

Alicea Springer was Boyfriend Whisperer Enterprises’ top success story. That is, until her dream date, Ty Walker, dumped her a week before prom. Now it’s senior year, and Alicea has taken over the business and given it an upgrade with an automated matchmaking program she designed and nicknamed Libby, short for LIBACA, which is short for “Love is But a Click Away.”

Alicea has no interest in using the program herself. She already knows who her perfect match is … Ty. She doesn’t need an app to tell her that (or worse, match her up with someone else). In a moment of weakness, Alicea allows her friends to convince her to give Libby a try. To her horror, it matches her with the last boy on earth she’d ever want to date–Darius Groves, the class deadbeat.

When she and Darius are paired up for a class project, Alicia learns there’s more to him than his bad reputation. But the more she spends time with Darius, the more she questions their match. They have so little in common. Can Alicea defy the odds and make a match of her own heart’s desire? Or will the matchmaker remain unmatched?

About the author:

My young adult novels, EM & EM (2015) and THE FUNERAL SINGER (2013), were both published by Swoon Romance YA. My upcoming novel, THE BOYFRIEND WHISPERER, scheduled for publication in fall of 2016 by Swoon, received the Romance Writers of America Young Adult Chapter’s 2015 Rosemary Award and the Virginia Chapter’s 2015 Fool for Love Award.
I live in Northern Virginia with my husband, Joe, and our feisty chihuahua, Demitria (also known as Dee Dee, The Puppy, and Killer). I’m a sucker for romance and reality TV and have been known to turn off my phone’s ringer when watching “The Bachelor.”
My favorite flower is the daisy, my favorite food is chocolate, and my favorite song is “Amazing Grace.”
When I’m not writing, I work in nonprofit management. I’m represented by the amazing Andrea Somberg of Harvey Klinger Inc.

Darius glances up as I approach him, a slow smile spreading across his face. “Hey, Bright Angel. Or do you still not want me to call you that?”

I sit down next to him. “What’s in a name? That which we call an angel by any other name would be as bright.”

His smile widens, and his eyebrows dance. “I love it when you talk Elizabethan to me.”

I feel myself blushing, so I turn and busy myself with extracting my calculus book from my backpack.

“Do you know what this Friday is?” Darius asks me as I flip through to find my lesson.

I shake my head.

“The next girls’ home game. And I believe you have a certain promise to keep to a certain little sister who basically asks me every single day when she’s going to meet her idol.”

“I will be there,” I say. “And I will not let that certain little sister down.”

“Cool. That’ll be … I mean, she’ll be really excited.”

I nod. “Should be fun.”

“Do you have a way to get there? To the game? Because I could pick you up if you need a ride.”

I hesitate, my eyes glued to my calc problems. Is he trying to turn this into a date? I mean, a date with his kid sister along, but still. I don’t need a ride, but I find myself nodding and saying “sure, thanks” and typing my address into his phone.

And, just like that, I—omigosh—have an almost, sort of, pseudo date with Darius Groves and his kid sister.
