THE BALLERINA ACADEMY SERIES

The Quarterback and the Ballerina

A Sweet YA Romance

He thought he knew what he wanted.

Turns out, all he wanted was her. 

Collette 

I’d kill to be the kind of dancer my mom wants me to be, but it’s just not in the cards. I’m sick of dieting. I’ll never fit into the perfect ballerina mold and I’m tired of wishing that I could.

I’m over it. I’m done trying.

I’m perfectly content to dance alone in the dark while the rest of the school is sleeping.

Ethan

Coach says our football team needs discipline. That dancing alongside a bunch of prissy prima donnas is how we’ll learn our lesson.

Only problem?

I don’t have time for ballet. Not when I’m busting my butt to be the star quarterback, the dutiful son, and the perfect student…all so I can achieve my father’s dream.

When I meet Collette, I can’t help but take notice. She’s a vision of grace and beauty all wrapped up in snark and sass. And she helps me see that my own dreams aren’t so stupid after all.

I just wish she could see that in herself. But when I try to bring her out into the light, I can feel her slipping away. Her walls are built up so high, I fear they’ll never come down. I want to love her like she deserves—but that’s just the problem.

She doesn’t believe she deserves it.

The Running Back & The Prima Donna

A Sweet YA Romance

He thought he had her figured out.

Turns out, he was wrong.

Bianca

Everyone at the ballet academy think they know me—the prima donna. The diva. The mean girl.

They’re wrong.

What they don’t know is that I’m moments away from losing my meticulously planned out life. I’m not one to show weakness but my ankle has a different agenda. Adding Ryan to that equation only complicates things more and suddenly the only person who can save my future—and my secrets—is the one person I’m not sure I can trust.

Ryan

I’ve spend my life not caring. If it doesn’t involve Mom or my kid sister, Rosie, I don’t care.

Period.

But there’s something about Bianca. Something about her desperate desire to hide the fact that she’s a pageant queen that I can’t help but involve myself in. Sure, it’s black mail—she does what I ask and I keep her secret—but I really think I can help her loosen up. After all, that’s my speciality.

Until things aren’t as simple anymore and suddenly, my feelings are deeper than I like. I come from a man who leaves, so why do I think I’d be different with Bianca? It’s better for me to stay away than for me to break her.

And the last thing I want to do is break her.

The Wide Receiver and his Best Friend’s Little Sister

The Ballerina Academy

His job was to protect her.
Feelings weren’t supposed to get involved.

Eve
I’ve been in love with my brother’s best friend for as long as I can remember. Once upon a time he was my knight in shining armor, but now? He acts like I’m his worst enemy.

I don’t know why Cooper Jenkins insists on keeping me at arm’s length—which is hard to do when he’s my partner at the Academy—or why he insists on shielding me from every other boy at school. I don’t want to be at Oakwood high anymore than he seems to want me there, so why won’t he leave me alone?

Cooper

When my best friend enlisted I made one promise: protect his little sister. And I’ll do that, even if it means pissing her off and making her hate me.

Besides, I’d rather she hate me than know how I truly feel.

If I give into temptation and make her mine, I’ll be breaking my vow in every way possible. But there’s something about her. Something in her gaze that is drawing me in and terrifying me at the same time.

And the more I’m around her, the more I begin to fear that perhaps, the only person who can truly hurt Eve? Is me.
