A new university, a fresh start, and no falling in love.

After a freshman year from hell, Juliet Stowe’s heart is in a million pieces. She transfers to a new school, determined to leave the past behind.
But when she’s paired up with Lucas McNamara, the ‘boy next door’ all deliciously grown up, she knows she’s in trouble. Back then she didn’t understand why her mother, who used to work for Lucas’ family, told her not to get attached. But they were inseparable -until her mother was fired because the McNamaras don’t mix with the help.

He never thought he’d see her again…

Lucas McNamara knew there was something familiar about his biology partner and is floored when it hits him. She’s ‘Julie’–the barefoot beauty who was unlike any girl he’d ever met then or since.

While years have passed and he’s far from the carefree kid that Juliet once knew, one thing remains the same. He wants her. He’s always wanted her–but he’s the heir to the McNamara multi-million dollar empire and his family is hell bent on keeping them apart.

17900639Beyond the Horizon by Kristen Kehoe

Mia Evans has one goal in life: to be perfect enough that her parents will love her, or at least love each other again.

Three years ago, her brother left her family, choosing a girl over the Evans name. Watching her mother cry and her father shut the rest of them out, Mia made a promise to herself that she would be the one to bring them back together again. Yet, despite her acceptance to Stanford, her perfect academic record, and a flawless resume`, Mia finds her family getting further and further apart.

Enter Ryan Murphy, the boy next door.

Ryan has loved Mia Evans since the day he saw her sitting on her front porch weeping into her knees. Fifteen then, Ryan had been unsure of what to do, so he’d sat at his window and watched over her, and in that time, a piece of him became hers.

Now, three years later, Ryan hasn’t told Mia how he feels, but he gets the chance when he’s forced to beg her to tutor him and save him from his mother. As their relationship progresses, Ryan realizes that Mia is more than he could have ever dreamed of, and that his feelings go a lot deeper than he ever imagined possible. And still, can they work?

Mia didn’t want to want Ryan Murphy. Just the opposite, actually. She agreed to tutor him because that’s her job, but she doesn’t have to like it, or the fact that she can’t seem to stop noticing how gorgeous he is.

Against all of her better judgment, Mia finds herself falling for Ryan, and falling hard. When the time comes for Mia to make the same decision that broke her family three years ago, she’s torn: follow her heart, and lose her family, or follow her family and lose the only person whose ever really loved her.
