In tennis, love means nothing until you meet your perfect match.

Vaughn Yarborough is ready to trade the fame and glory of the international junior pro tennis circuit for college and a more settled life. First stop: spearhead a summer camp for underprivileged kids. The girl who’s agreed to run it with him has Vaughn more intrigued by the minute, but with the strict no-fraternizing rules, he’s got to figure out how not to fall for her.

When the boy Carlyn Sadowski has crushed on for years asks her to work with him for the summer, she has to pinch herself. When his world-famed coach offers her training for free, she can’t believe her luck. He could actually help her follow in her mother’s footsteps by playing college tennis. But when she finds out the catch is she’s got to convince Vaughn to go pro, Carlyn will have to decide between her dreams and the boy currently stealing her heart.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book features a super-hot sports star, the shy girl looking to grow her confidence on and off the court, and late-night shenanigans that would make your camp counselor blush.



Ten Pieces of Advice for Teenage Melissa Chambers, from Adult Melissa Chambers

1 – Don’t worry, you won’t grow up. Not in your head at least. Even as a full-grown woman, you’ll be a fifteen-year-old girl at heart.

2 – Wear sunscreen! No, I’m serious. Replace the baby oil with sunscreen, you crazy person! Do it!

3 – People say silly and hurtful things at times. This has nothing to do with you, even if it’s directed at you. Ignore.

4 – Read the Sweet Valley High books. I hear they’re fabulous.

5 – Stop being so boy crazy! There’s plenty of time for that in college, and you’re going to marry a wonderful man, so chill, girl!

6 – Stay in the color guard for junior and senior years, even though you think all the “cool” people have graduated out of the band. It’s fine to be a band geek! And you love twirling the flag! BTW, who quits band the year they are going to New York to march in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? Who does that?! *strangles young Melissa*

7 – Join some clubs. You’ll need them for your college applications.

8 – Read the book, He’s Just Not That Into You. I know it’s not been written yet, but I would REALLY like you to learn these concepts.

9 – Ask your great grandma to tell you stories. She was a Native American. How cool is that? Think of the things she might not find extraordinary about her life that you would find fascinating, and let her fill you up with all that she has to say.

10 – Be confident. *sigh* I realize this isn’t something I can order you to do, and it’s so often easier said than done. Don’t wait for someone to tell you that you can do anything you want in life. Just go do it!
