This Entangled Teen Crush book contains adult language, underage drinking, sexual situations, and lots of swoons. It may convince even the good-est of good girls to go bad.

This good girl's about to meet her match...

Ryder Brooks is living the dream-he's famous, loved by millions of girls, and miserable. All he really wants is to write his own music, not Seconds to Juliet's sugary sweet pop. In order to do that, though, the "bad boy" of the band will have to play by the rules. And that includes behaving with his new-and super cute-über-good-girl tutor.

Mia Reyes is in fangirl heaven. Tutoring her favorite member of her favorite band? It's a dream come true...until it turns into a complete nightmare. Ryder is nothing like she thought. He's crude, arrogant, and pretty much a total jerk. And the worst part? She's roped into pretending to be his girlfriend so that no one finds out he's being tutored. Fake kisses, plenty of PDA, and even sharing his hotel room...

But sometimes even the baddest of bad boys needs a little redemption.

A joke she was supposed to delete.

The show was supposed to help me meet a sexy companion who could finally take care of business.

Unfortunately, the one person I want to win the undying allegiance of my, well, you know, can't be in the running at all.

Now in an L.A. mansion with fifteen very persuasive contestants vying for my attention and one undeniably hot Production Assistant secretly getting it all the word ACTION has a whole new meaning...

How far would you go for a second chance?

Eleven years after flunking out of college, Kate has finally hit rock-bottom. Losing her job and boyfriend in one drunken night, she’s determined to fix her life by going back to the moment when she let partying and sex take over. And do things right this time. At twenty-nine, she heads back to freshman year of college, with a catch.

Pretending she's nineteen with a new roommate and full class schedule is easy. When she meets her shy, sexy and seven-years-younger RA, Carter, following her self-imposed sobriety and celibacy rules is proving to be anything but.

A senior enduring years of regret, Carter is more than ready to graduate. He’s anxious to move on from the party his freshman year where he witnessed his frat brothers about to commit a sexual assault. Instead of doing the right thing and stepping in, he looked the other way and left. His guilt has made for a lonely four years.

When he meets the new freshman on his floor, spunky and confident Kate, he wonders if his time as an outcast has finally come to an end.

Kate and Carter’s growing friendship and undeniable attraction make it harder to hide the demons from their respective pasts. But when their secrets are finally revealed, will their chance at starting over together still be there?

A graduate student by day, an erotic romance author by night, a forbidden attraction I can't deny...

All I ever wanted was to make a name for myself as Candice Salinas, creative writing grad student at the University of Miami. Of course, secretly I already have made a name for myself: as Candy Sloane, self-published erotic romance writer. Though thrilled that my books are selling and I have actual fans, if anyone at UM found out, I could lose my scholarship...and the respect of my faculty advisor, grade-A-asshole Professor Dylan.

Enter James Walker, super-hot local barista and--surprise!--my student. Even though I know a relationship is totally off-limits, I can't stop myself from sneaking around with James, taking a few cues from my own erotic writing...if you catch my drift. Candy's showing her stripes for the first time in my real life, and I've never had so much fun. But when the sugar high fades, can my secrets stay under wraps?
