A fresh start...
Morgan Eastman cannot wait to finish high school. One more year is all that stands in the way of her new life. One where she isn’t constantly ignored – or bullied – and one in which she isn’t always compared to her perfect sister, Clarissa. For years, she’d kept to the shadows, avoiding the wrath of the popular girls – the Hawkettes – and the rulers of the school, the soccer stars, the Hawks. One more year. Except, this time, one of the Hawks has set his sights on her.
A way out…
Ethan Lowry has it all. Well, almost. Captain of the soccer team, beloved by all, the only thing he needs… is to get away from home. Escape the prison holding him back. With his soccer scholarship pending, he just needs a little more to make his escape a reality. When offered with a chance for freedom, Ethan reluctantly agrees. It’s easy, really. He just needs to get the shy, overweight, geeky-girl, Morgan, to fall in love with him. For a Hawk, especially the Captain, he can nearly feel the three thousand dollars in his pocket already.
A bet that would ruin them both…
Ethan soon learns the bet isn’t going as planned. Instead of Morgan falling for him, for the first time in his life, he is chasing after her. How didn’t he notice it before? Morgan is stunning. She’s smart. She’s kind. She’s everything he ever wanted. Everything he ever needed. This couldn’t possibly be love… could it? There’s only one thing Ethan knows for certain. Morgan can never find out about the bet. It would ruin them. And now, the only thing Ethan needs most in his life… is Morgan.
If all is fair in love and war, then why does it hurt so… damn… much?

Everyone falls in love at least once in their lives, sometimes many times over. Young love, aging love, forever love, forbidden love.. and then there is the One Love. It consumes your life and makes every minute of every day worth living...the one love that leaves you breathless.
Emery Warden was an average eighteen-year-old girl--as average as one can be for having a terminal illness. She wanted to keep life simple and get through what time was left unscathed. No hurt, no pain, no heartache, so being a loner was her remedy for life. Emery just wanted to get through school and reach all the goals she had set for herself.
None of that included meeting and falling in love with Austin.
Austin Murray never got into trouble. As part of the elite at school--the football team--he never had to own up to any trouble. That all changed when trouble caught up with him. The last thing he expected when he began his mandatory volunteer work at the hospital was a girl who had no interest in him at all. He couldn't say the same: the more he got to know Emery, the more he fell in love with her. She was different from every other girl he’d ever been involved with, and had no idea how that would change when he uncovered her secret...
Young love is a sweet love that will always be remembered, one that makes us who we are, and one that will leave us feeling alive...and breathless.

Max Carter was there, wherever there was at the moment. He knew he was stuck in the in-between, but wasn’t sure how to get to either side. In fact, sometimes he didn’t know which side he wanted to go to. He’d left it all behind a few months ago in a spur of the moment decision, yet he wasn’t where he thought he would end up. There were people that came and went, but no one stayed as long as he had in this place. He could watch from afar what his family and friends were doing, but he couldn’t reach out to them…he was all alone.
That was until she came. She filled that empty space that he always had. She made him laugh, cry, feel all the things he never thought he’d ever feel again…but most of all she made him love. He knew there would come a day when she would be able to choose her pathway. One day, she would leave and he would be left alone once again.
Max could help her go back, but was he willing to give up his happiness for her. Time was running out for both of them. Which path would they choose? Would they pick the one that would allow them to be together forever, or would they be separated by a time that no one knew existed?
