Six years ago, Tessa Gardner’s sister, Mellie, disappeared. Despite the never ending desire to find her, seventeen-year-old Tessa works hard to keep it together. But when her childhood crush, seventeen-year-old Luke Simon, rolls back into her small Texan town, he topples the delicate balance she created. Luke knows a thing or two about guilt. He moved in with his uncle to escape his past, but memories threaten to eat him alive. Tessa, and her long legs and her hard-earned smiles and her kindness is the only girl who’s ever mattered. But the truth about his past might send her running. While Tessa and Luke try their hardest to live in the present, their pasts lurk in the shadows, more intertwined than they could imagine. And it may be too late to save Mellie's sister—and themselves.
She’s his best friend’s little sister. He’s the biggest player of them all. They shouldn’t be together. But this summer’s just too tempting.
Sixteen-year-old Emilia Moretti’s goal for the summer is simple: forget her brother’s best friend—Nick Grawsky—ever existed. But when Nick decides to stay in the city, Emilia’s resolve disappears in a pirouette. Maybe it’s the spin they needed. As long as she doesn’t get stuck believing in happily ever after.
Nick is tired of pretending to be the happy, let’s-have-fun guy. He needs to put all of his focus on dancing to prove to Daddy Dearest he’s good enough to make it big. And he may have a case of the bluest balls in history courtesy of Emilia: his best friend's little sister. He knows he should resist her, but he’s not sure he wants to.
