The distinctive new crowdsourced publishing imprint Swoon Reads proudly presents its first published novel—an irresistibly sweet romance between two college students told from 14 different viewpoints.
The creative writing teacher, the delivery guy, the local Starbucks baristas, his best friend, her roommate, and the squirrel in the park all have one thing in common—they believe that Gabe and Lea should get together. Lea and Gabe are in the same creative writing class. They get the same pop culture references, order the same Chinese food, and hang out in the same places. Unfortunately, Lea is reserved, Gabe has issues, and despite their initial mutual crush, it looks like they are never going to work things out.
But somehow even when nothing is going on, something is happening between them, and everyone can see it. Their creative writing teacher pushes them together. The baristas at Starbucks watch their relationship like a TV show. Their bus driver tells his wife about them. The waitress at the diner automatically seats them together. Even the squirrel who lives on the college green believes in their relationship.
Surely Gabe and Lea will figure out that they are meant to be together....
My teaser, from p. 115 in the paperback:
And within seconds we're back at the booth, numbers exchanged, and Bianca's giggling uncontrollably.I've finally picked this up, and it's so cute so far! I'm really loving the idea of using all the different POVs to tell the story. :)
"I'm totally not that drunk," she says. "But I figured if I could put on a good show, we might just get the information we've been looking for."
Lea shakes her head. "You're kind of an evil genius."
I'll be visiting around and visiting back, so leave me links to your teasers! :) Happy Tuesday!
