LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH AND (IN)FAMOUS by Tierney Fowler
Pub Date: August 19, 2014
Nyx Carrington, notorious for her red lipstick and over-the-top personality, has just snagged the dreamiest A-Lister in Manhattan. Tristan Halifax, a gorgeous, arrogant man with a penchant for beautiful women, could be Nyx’s chance at true love. After her last disastrous relationship with her not-so-dream guy, the brooding Crashbang bassist, AJ Abbott, Nyx is ready for a new start.
Overnight, Nyx’s relationship status with Tristan turns her into America’s Sweetheart—complete with scandalizing parties, new friendships with Manhattan’s Golden Boys, and unending photographers. It’s the perfect moment in the spotlight with Tristan—or it would be if AJ would stop writing chart topping love songs dedicated to her red lipstick.
When AJ crashes back into her life declaring that wants to reignite their high school romance, Nyx’s love life gets complicated. And when the press hears about problems with the “it” couple, they turn on Nyx—jeopardizing her relationship with Tristan, ruining her reputation, and discovering her old skeletons. Nyx’s newfound fame as America’s Sweetheart may leave her brokenhearted.
Celebrities are supposed to have it all, but having it all could mean losing everything that used to matter.
SWIMMING TO TOKYO by Brenda St. John Brown

The rules for swimming are simple:
Rule #1: There is no lifeguard on duty.
Since her mom died three years ago, nineteen-year-old Zosia Easton’s been treading water. Living at home. Community college. Same old nights. So when her father breaks the news he’s taken a job transfer—and by the way, it means renting out the house that's been her refuge—a summer in Tokyo feels like it just might be a chance to start swimming again.
Rule #2: Beware of unexpected currents.
Finn O’Leary has spent God knows how many years trying to drown out his past. Juvenile detention. Bad decisions. Worse choices. He’s managed to turn it around – MIT, Dean’s List, a sexier-than-thou body with a smile to match – at least on the surface. When his mom asks him to spend the summer with her, Tokyo seems as good a place as any to float through the summer.
Rule #3: Swim at your own risk.
