From the acclaimed bestselling author of Lost to You and When We Collide comes a New Adult novel of one woman's obsession: a man who's as passionate as he is elusive - and as tempting as he is trouble...

Aleena Moore is haunted by Jared Holt. It's been six years since she's seen her brother's best friend, the self-destructive bad boy she secretly loved in high school. As the years pass, she knows it's time to move on. Time to decide between a practical nursing degree and her true dream as an artist. Time to get over Jared and give another guy a chance...

Just when she opens her heart to her friend, Gabe, Aly returns home to find Jared sleeping on her couch. The teenage boy she loved has grown into a man she can't resist. Covered in tattoos and lost in rage, he's begging to be saved from his demons - the memories of the day he destroyed his family. As the two reconnect, their passion is hot enough to torch Aly's judgment. But can she risk her future for a man who lives on the edge of destruction?

But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there's nothing between them . . . right?New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (Roomies, Beautiful Bastard) tells the laugh-out-loud, uplifting story of two people who are completely wrong for each other - in all the right ways.

Pixie Marshall's freshman year of college ended two weeks ago, as did her residence in the school dorms. Which means she's in need of a new place to live and, subsequently, a job. She started working at Willow Inn because one of the job perks-and she'd use that term loosely-is free room and board. But what she hadn't realized is that her free room shares a hallway and a bathroom with the only person she was hoping to avoid for the rest of her life: Levi Andrews. As in: Hot guy. Handyman. Keeper of all her painful memories. Once upon a time, they were best friends on the brink of being something more, but that was before everything went to hell. All Pixie wants to do now is avoid him completely, which might be more harder than she thought. Because despite everything that happened before, Levi hasn't let go of his feelings for her either.
