Friends to lovers is one of my favorite romance tropes and when this theme is written with a new adult setting in the clever, sassy style that Cassie Mae pens all I can do is squeal. BUT – then look at the cover – double squeal!! Double dare you – tell me you do not love this cover! Wait until you read the story – shy Eric Matua is besties with popular Mia Johnson and has been since childhood. When summer break approaches Eric offers Mia a place to hang before the new college school season begins. Their relationship is fun, familiar and heartwarming and very sexy too *blushes* – don’t miss, THE REAL THING on sale August 19th.
This “Best” story comes from Cassie Mae, author of SWITCHED and FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI. Last year, I was stuck in the hospital on Valentine’s Day, postpartum and with my sweet NICU baby. Hubby had the other kids already for a week by himself, and he was learning the hard way what it was like to deal with the two devils boys. I got clearance to go out to lunch with him, and he dropped the older two off at Grandma’s and we went to Texas Roadhouse. Both of us were so tired we fell asleep at the table. I literally had a fry halfway to my mouth, and he was drinking out of an empty glass when the waiter woke us up. So we went back to the hospital and slept for as long as … Continued
Look at what readers are saying about Switched: “Switched is a brilliant read that keeps you laughing, and sighing, and frustrated, and loving it!”—Rachel Schieffelbein, author of Run for the Roses “Switched was a mixture of heartfelt honesty and laugh-out-loud moments. Wesley and Kayla’s journey is one you can’t miss and will want to be on, cheering from the sidelines as they mess up and make up. I couldn’t get enough of these two.”—Theresa Paolo, author of (Never) Again “Cassie Mae’s books have become my latest guilty pleasure. Pleasure, because who doesn’t love to read a romantic comedy? And I say guilty because when I lay my hands on one, I tend to read them in one sitting and let all my other responsibilities go to the wayside. What dishes?”—Pauline Creeden, author of Sanctuary
You ask, I deliver… More Wesley for all you SWITCHED fans And for those of you who haven’t read SWITCHED yet, it’s not too spoilery, so no worries In Kayla’s POV, we heard a bit about how disastrous Wesley and Reagan’s date was, but we never got to see it. So here’s a little bit with them in a karaoke bar. Enjoy!
Cassie Mae redefines the New Adult genre with a novel that answers the eternal question: What do you do when you’re head over heels for your best friend’s guy?
The first year out on your own sort of kicks you in the butt. I think the best way for me to show this, is by sharing a letter from a freshman friend to another, a few months after moving away. BriAnne! I swear, if I have to eat another box of Suddenly Salad, I’m going to grow into a noodle. Why can’t steak cost sixty-eight cents? I’d call home and beg for money, but I did that yesterday. Used it to buy milk and Tylenol. Because that’s healthy, ha! I actually need the pain killers because these classes are killing me. Also… I’m not sure if my math professor even knows my name. He keeps calling me Kelly. “Good work on your last test, Kelly.” “Make sure the quadratic is correct here, Kelly.” “You’re … Continued

What makes a hero, well, a hero? In Romance I’m often smothered by big muscles, tattoos, nice abs, and huge… well… ahem, everything. And hello! Those are all great (I drool thinking about those sexy covers!) but every once in a while, I want the guy who’s cocky and self-conscious. I want the goofy, awkward dude who looks good in a tight shirt, but won’t let you see what’s underneath. I want to read and write about all the normally unsexy things and how incredibly sexy they really are. Let me introduce you to Chase.

These are books for the person who just graduated high school and still has no idea what to do with their life.
