In a small town like Culler, South Carolina, you guard your secrets like you guard your cobbler recipe: with your life. Georgia Ann Monroe knows a thing or two about secrets: she’s been guarding the truth that her best friend Will is gay for years now. But what happens when a little white lie to protect him gets her into a fake relationship…and then the boy of her dreams shows up?
Enter Beau Montgomery: Georgie’s first love, hotter than ever, and much too much of a southern gentleman to ever pursue someone else’s girl. There’s no way to come clean to Beau while still protecting Will. But bless their hearts, they live in Culler—where secrets always have a way of revealing themselves.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a hilarious “fakeship,” a scorching-hot impossible relationship, and a heartwarming best-friendship that will make you want to call your best friend right here, right now.

- What author would you totally fan?
I have fangirled Jennifer Donnelly, like shaking and crying. I was in shock! It was an awesome, very memorable moment.
- What makes you cringe?
When advertisements use bad grammar or misspell things
That squeaky sound Styrofoam makes when you touch it wrong
Blue pens. They’re so assaulting to my eyes.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I outline, but sometimes within that there are definitely moments I have to go with the flow when the characters take over a scene.
- Is there a word you love to use?
I have to think about this, actually, because I am a very corny person (in real life) an, I like to jokingly use Southern sayings just to see what people say or do. It’s quite fun. I didn’t do that before writing this book, but now it’s all just in my head more.
And the word “just” which I probably use too much.
