Ali Philips never thought anything could be more devastating than the day Levi and Tucker Corbin, her two best friends—her only friends—moved away. Three years passed without a single phone call, text message, or email from them and she’s resolved to the fact that she will probably never see them again. Until one morning when she comes face-to-face with Levi Corbin in physics class.
Little does she know, the Corbins have returned to Haldeen with only one thing on their minds: winning Ali’s heart. Ali soon finds herself in the middle of a love triangle she doesn’t want any part of. As she tries to reclaim the friendships she’s lost and to adjust to the unfamiliar feelings she’s having, she struggles with making the one decision that will forever change their lives: Levi or Tucker Corbin?
She’s always had a special bond with Tucker and feels most comfortable when she’s with him. But Levi brings her to life in a way she didn’t think was possible and makes her feel things she didn’t think she would ever feel. Torn between the two, Ali is certain of only one thing–by the time it’s over, she’ll lose one of her best friends.
About the Author:

Playing make believe with her Barbie dolls and stuffed animals was her first real taste of storytelling before she became old enough to develop a love affair with the written word. In early 2010, Kara picked up her very first erotic romance novel, and she was instantly hooked. She loves to write contemporary romance, erotica, and young adult romance. Currently she has several full-length novels in the works, a series of novellas, and a handful of short stories. Kara is an active member of the CNY Creative Writers Café and the CNY Romance Writers. Today, Kara resides in New Haven, New York with her husband, five kids, and three cats. When she’s not reading or writing, she’s thinking about reading and writing. And when she’s not doing that, she’s spending time with her family and friends.

MY FAVORITE FICTIONAL COUPLES
Okay, before I start sharing my favorite fictional characters with all of you, I should clarify that when I say fictional, I'm not limiting myself to just books, but that the term encompasses movies and TV as well. As you'll soon see, this list is very diverse, and you might be asking yourself: what criteria do I use to determine what makes certain couples my favorite? Well, I don't really have any. A couple has to cause a strong, visceral reaction in me. They have to make my heart race, my pulse pound, my palms sweat, bring tears to my eyes, and make me root for them at all costs.
So, without further ado, here are my favorite fictional couples:
Elena & Damon (The Vampire Diaries) – I'll be honest, I haven't read these books, but I love the TV show and I'm always yelling at my television when they get together, or fight, which they seem to do a lot of.
Kate & Jack (Lost) – What I enjoyed so much about this couple is that Kate was the bad girl and Jack was the good guy. Typically it’s the other way around: good girl falls for the bad boy. Jack was constantly trying to save her from herself, and he succeeded several times.
Hannah & Aubrey (The Park Service Trilogy) – This is a very dysfunctional relationship, and it's not one of my favorites because I want them together. It's just the opposite, actually. Hannah isn't very nice, and I'm on the fence as to whether I want Aubrey to send her packing or fight to try and redeem her.
Scully & Mulder (The X-Files) – Okay, so these two were never technically a couple, but they should've been. The tension between them was palpable.
Peyton & Lucas (One Tree Hill) – These two went through so much together, and through it all they managed to find love and happiness.
Katniss & Peeta (The Hunger Games) – I should mention that this couple was my favorite in the first book only. The love between them was innocent and pure. In books two and three it went straight to hell, in my opinion, but they still make it on my list because I truly feel for them and how things ended up for them.
