True love can blossom in unexpected places. This is Jaden pretending not to notice. . . .
Jaden McEntyre and Parker Whalen are a wrong fit from the start. Jaden is driven and focused, Harvard Med School within reach. Parker has a past—a reputation—and the rumors about his mysterious habits abound. So there’s no reason why, when they're assigned to work together on a project in English, they should discover they have anything in common, or even like each other, and they definitely shouldn't be falling in love.
As they bond over Edith Wharton’s tragic novella, Ethan Frome, the “bad boy” vibe Parker plays begins to dissipate. Soon, Jaden finds herself shedding her own “good girl” image: sneaking around to be with him, confiding in him, and ultimately falling hard for this leather-wearing, motorcycle-driving loner who plays into the rebel stereotype.
Still, Jaden can't shake the feeling that there's more to Parker than he's letting on. He's hiding something from her, and discovering the truth means reconciling the Parker she's grown to love with the person he really is. Because it's possible that his life inside the classroom—everything Jaden knows—is one massive lie.
CROSS MY HEART, told from Jaden's point of view, is a 76k-word/300-page contemporary romance for young adults. Bonus features include the official playlist and an interview with the author.
* In addition to spending more than 100 days on the Amazon Teen Top 100 Bestseller List, CROSS MY HEART is also a 2011 Goodreads Choice Awards Nominee for Best YA Fiction.
Oh my gosh I loved this so much! Totally unexpected twist. I love Parker! Read it in one day.
This story was so amazing!! There was such a twist at the end that I was left with my mouth hanging open. You definitely wont see it coming! I loved this story so much. I am a hopeless romantic and can safely say that this was a beautiful love story. But it wasn't just about love it was about self-growth, learning to cope and live with the possibilities of failure and seeing that things might change in a heartbeat but it's not always for worst. I'm kinda hating right now because I want a Parker for myself lol anyways great story definitely 5/5 although some parts in the story were kinda lacking but overall amazing :D
Could not put the boom down. Love love LOVED it!!
