Begin Again by Brittney Mulliner
Escaping her past, Aubrey Tate moves to Southern California for a fresh start with her older brother, Brandon. Starting over at a new school seems easy with her cousin, Mckayla, and her two best friends at her side, but handling the new guys is another matter. Aubrey ends up in the middle of three rivals that each want her to themselves. Mike claims her first and declare himself her friend and protector. Luke is the school heartthrob that stops Aubrey in her tracks, speechless. Gage is the mysterious, dark outsider that Aubrey can be herself around. How will she navigate her new life while she's still haunted by her past?
He grunted pushing up and landing on me with his full weight. He stared down at me with those deep brown eyes. My eyes moved down his face to his lips which were inches away from mine, just one move away from touching. I was frozen in the moment too shy to do anything but wait. I watched his eyes move from my eyes to my lips and sucked in a breath.
I laid there for a few moments confused. Was he going to kiss me? The opportunity had definitely presented itself! Slowly I sat up trying to follow him and act like nothing happened. “So should we give it a try?”
He shot a look at me clearly not understanding so I pointed to the boards.
“Surfing? Should I try to get up?”
He shook his head before standing up and reaching his hand out to help me up. I took it and met his eyes when we were next to each other again. He looked like he was about to say something, but turned and led the way to the boards.

Brittney had been an avid reader since she can remember. Her parents’ form of punishment for her growing up was taking away her books and making her go outside to play. She was born and raised in Southern California, with a brief hiatus in Arizona. She loves the beach, exercising, sleeping in, and cookies. She is an obsessive dog lover, although her affection currently has no outlet. Something that she is planning on remedying soon. She currently lives in Utah while she and her husband finish college.
PLEASE WELCOME BRITTNEY TO BOOKHOUNDS YA
1. What is on your nightstand?
An assortment of bobby pins and hair ties, an awesome alarm clock that projects the time of the ceiling so I never have to roll over to check the time, and my phone charger.
2. What author would you totally fan girl?
C.L. Stone. I’m obsessed with her two series. Probably way more obsessed than I should be.
3. What makes you cringe?
Bugs, any shape or species…and seafood…and bad drivers.
4. Are you worried that your google history will get you into trouble?
Not really, but there are way too many wedding/engagement photos out there of me.
5. Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I usually have a rough outline but things change as characters evolve. In this book two characters got into a fight that I hadn’t planned. It just happened so I had to back track and have them make up. I was shocked as I was writing and realized the characters were coming alive in my head taking control of the story.
