And she does it again. The doozy of a cliffhanger at the end. It’s not quite as angsty as the last one but close.

Enemies-to-lovers + boss romance + drama summer camp + angst + 🔥

I love that this is not an insta-forgiveness story. Ray and Marlo’s feelings are complicated and stem from emotional baggage dating back to their high school days. When they reconnect, all of that hurt doesn’t just magically disappear. There’s a lot to work through and even when they begin to do so, there is still that love/hate part of their relationship that keeps things interesting. Then, when you think things are finally going to go smoothly, Rachel throws you a curve ball as if to say “Psych! Just kidding!”.  I can’t wait to see what she has in store for the finale. And of course, I can’t wait to read the performance of Dirty Dancing too!

Available exclusively on iBooks.

I wanted revenge.
And I got it in the best way possible.

Ray has always driven me insane, now that we’re older, all I want is to make her feel the pain she put me through for four years.

And then suddenly, everything shifts and I realize I just want her,
It’s bad enough that I’m the camp director — her boss.

Our love is equal to our hate for one another and the burning tension between us refuses to relent. If anything it’s gotten worse.

I push her.
She pushes back.
Passion, whether it be born of love or hate — is a powerful beast, one I’m refusing to tame.

Marlo and Ray’s story continues…
