One girl. Five stops. A chance encounter that would change everything.

When Indigo Ericson gets her dream job at Digital Monument, she can’t believe her luck. Not only is she collaborating with an award-winning creative team, but she is also working on a top-secret project. And then she meets her boss.

Except this isn’t their first time meeting.

Author Bio

Wednesday by Clare James





Title: Wednesday
Series: Love in Days #1 
Author: Clare James
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: September 27, 2014



Blurb

A #1 Amazon category bestseller!
Real. Raw. Insanely Sexy. WEDNESDAY is a stand-alone story.
*Book #2, Alex's story, coming this summer!

Her. Him. Alone. Every Wednesday ...

Twenty-one-year-old Aria Prince has just moved back to her hometown to start over after a painful divorce. She's always prided herself on being an early bloomer, but had no idea she'd be married, divorced, and the mother of a toddler by twenty-one.

Unlike her friends who were at school, going to parties, and sowing their oats--wild and otherwise--Aria's days were measured in the number of orders she took at her family's restaurant, the chapters she read in her nursing text, the amount of Cheerios she cleaned up off the floor, and the wet kisses she received from her son.

And that was just fine with her.

But when she began running into her former best friend Tristan Green - who was home taking care of his sick father - she remembered what it felt like to be just Aria. Not a single mother, or sleep-deprived nursing student, or royal screw up. And though she didn't even have time to shave her legs, let alone consider a sex life, Tristan makes an offer she'd be a fool to refuse.

Each day they'd give themselves to those who needed them. Every day - except Wednesday.

Wednesday, they'd take what they needed from each other.

*Wednesday is a gritty and intoxicating romance from Clare James that will keep you turning the pages no matter what day of week you choose to indulge! *

Mistrust by Margaret McHeyzer





Title: Mistrust
Author: Margaret McHeyzer
Genre: Young Adult
Cover Design: Book Cover by Design 
 Release Date: July 2016



Blurb

From New York Times bestselling author Margaret McHeyzer.... 

I’m the popular girl at school.
The one everyone wants to be friends with.
I have the best boyfriend in the world, who’s on the basketball team.
My parents adore me, and I absolutely love them. My sister and I have a great relationship too.
I’m a cheerleader, I have a high GPA and I’m liked even by the teachers.
It was a night which promised to be filled with love and fun until…something happened which changed everything.








Excerpt


Dragging myself out of the gymnasium and down the hall, I try and get to the side double-doors. But with no one here to help me, it's difficult. I need to sit for a moment out on the steps leading to the back field and gather myself.

My legs become heavier as I get to the doors. The cyclone happening inside my head is growing thicker while my vision is so unclear I can barely make out any objects.

Stumbling down the first step, I barely recognize where I am.

“What’s happening?” I think I say.

There’s a cacophony of dense sounds; a combination of white noise, mumbling, and a beat which doesn’t make sense.

My eyes are now so heavy I can barely open them and my legs are completely weighted as I attempt to make my way down the stairs. I think I’m going to pass out.





Author Bio

There's something about the written word that is pure magic.

Possibly it's the fact there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering they're capable to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.


I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.

Blurb

The inseparable are well and truly split.

Mack, Faith and Lacey, joined at the hip since primary school, are about to graduate high school. You might think this sounds like a book about coming-of-age and taking that leap into adulthood.

It is— except one of them doesn’t make it …

Lacey Marone had two solid things on her agenda for her future — working in the Pepperoni Palace until she figured out what the hell to do with her life, and getting together with her bestie’s older brother, Quade, who she’s crushed on since she was a kid.

Then graduation night changed everything. Almost three years later, Lacey won’t rest until she discovers the truth surrounding Faith’s death. She’s outcast by those who want to move on from the tragedy, as if the town’s sweetheart never existed.

Years after losing Faith, Quade Kelly returns home to Runaway Beach, determined to mend ties with his parents and cement a future in his hometown teaching at the local primary school. Quade soon learns that his sister’s ghost lives on, thanks to Lacey, the girl who still owns a piece of his heart.

Lacey is hung up on her quest for answers. Quade wants to bury his failures of the past. The pull between them can’t be denied but can the past be forgotten?

Truths will be uncovered and hearts will be cracked open wide. After all, graduation was never meant to end like this.

Mack, Faith and Lacey, joined at the hip since they were kids, are about to graduate high school. You might think this sounds like a book about coming-of-age and taking that leap into adulthood.

Mackenzie Carter has one solid thing on the agenda for her future—get out of town and focus on her post-school studies. After all, she’s wanted to be a vet since she was a little girl, and nothing, not the thought of being apart from her two best mates or the idea that maybe she’s got more-than-friendly feelings for a sexy local surfer can alter that … can it?

Graduation changes everything.

Almost three years later, and Mack’s high school dreams are just that—figments of her imagination, thanks to the guilt that haunts her on a daily basis. Will a faux relationship with Byron Leckie be the thing she needs to get her life back on track? Or will it make everything worse?
 
One thing is for certain. When these two collide, the damage will be fierce. After all, graduation was never meant to end like this.
