Star lacrosse player Alex “Kov” Koviak has it all. Or so everyone thinks. He’s real good at pretending his life is perfect…until he meets Bailey. The girl challenges him and pushes him and makes him laugh like he’s never laughed before. Their friendship is their little secret, and he’s happy to keep her to himself.
Between school, two jobs, and trying to get into NYU film school, Bailey Banfield has zero time for a social life. But then she meets Alex in her express lane at the grocery store, and their secret friendship becomes the only place she can breathe. She refuses to complicate that with more. No matter how charming Alex can be.
When Bailey decides to film outrageous promposals for her NYU application, she enlists Alex’s help to plan an over-the-top, epic promposal to someone else. Too bad the only prom date Alex wants anywhere near Bailey is him.
For a guy who seems to have it all, he’s about to lose the only thing he’s ever wanted.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Crush contains a cocky lacrosse player in over his head with his secret best friend, unexpected midnight kisses, swoon-worthy slow dancing, and movie-night cuddling that’ll make you ache. You’re going to want an Alex of your own!
Guest Post – Cover Love
I love the cover of my newest release, Love and Other Secrets, so much! Entangled does a fantastic job of creating covers that match the stories behind them. In this case, I think the photo of the guy (main character Alex) and the girl (main character Bailey) does a great job of showing the friendship that is the base of their relationship–but also is a bit of foreshadowing (as all good covers are) because obviously, this is NOT how you sit on a couch with someone who is only a friend!
I’m a sucker for aesthetically pleasing colors too, and this palette gives me all the feels. And of course, the discarded Converses on the floor (Alex’s family housekeeper would never allow them on the sofa!) are just a fun extra detail.
I hope this cover makes everyone who sees it want to get to know these two characters much better. Thanks for having me on the blog!
