What Leah did—only she really shouldn’t have—one hot night at a country club party.
What Leah has—only she really shouldn’t have—on the guy with the green eyes, the guy who is not her perfect boyfriend, the guy who does not fit in her picture-perfect life, the guy her sisters will only mock and her mother will never approve of. Not in a million years.
What happens when everything you always thought you wanted—having cool friends, being class valedictorian and homecoming queen—runs smack into everything it turns out you really do want.
Kiss. Crush. Collide.
For Leah and Porter, summer is only the beginning.
Are you the girl that does everything your parents expect of you? Homecoming Queen? Do your parents imply that you have to following in your siblings shoes and be Valedictorian? Is everything in your life just so perfect you wonder what it would be like to step onto the other side of the tracks? If this is you than KISS CRUSH COLLIDE is exactly for you.
‘Golden Girl’ Leah has everything. Two perfect sisters to look up too. Parents who make sure she has everything. Shane, the hot boyfriend who drives a convertible and all the girls swoon over. And a car that she received for her birthday that just sits in the driveway!
While most of us would want all of these things, Leah is starting to question her life. She feels suffocated and fake, like she’s going through the same routine day in and day out. The only thing Leah really wants to do is be a lifeguard which her mother is very set against.
On the night of her sister, Yorke, engagement Leah meets Porter, the young man working at the country club parking cars. When Leah needs to escape the stuffy family gathering she escapes and guess who’s waiting for her . . . Porter! He borrows her soon to be brother-in-laws car and they take it for a joyride and sparks fly. Leah is instantly attracted to the bad boy from across the tracks. The boy her mother would never approve of.
When Porter shows up at the pool, she knows she’s in too deep. Not only does she have strong feelings for him, she has a boyfriend, one that is wholly accepted by her parents. Leah is torn, but is unwilling to give up Porter whose name is actually Jon Duffy or JD for short.
Jon and Leah begin a whirlwind summer romance, but with all things built on secrets, they start to tumble out before you can catch them. You will definitely want to be part of this love affair.
KISS CRUSH COLLIDE is Christina Merdith’s first novel and the way she left it, I’m hoping for a sequel. You’ll find KCC in stores on December 27th. Pre-order today in hopes for an early delivery, what a great way to spend winter vacation.
