Star lacrosse player Alex “Kov” Koviak has it all. Or so everyone thinks. He’s really good at pretending his life is perfect…until he meets Bailey. The girl challenges him and pushes him and makes him laugh like he’s never laughed before. Their friendship is their little secret, and he’s happy to keep her to himself.
Between school, two jobs, and trying to get into NYU film school, Bailey Banfield has zero time for a social life. But then she meets Alex in her express lane at the grocery store, and their secret friendship becomes the only place she can breathe. She refuses to complicate that with more. No matter how charming Alex can be.
When Bailey decides to film an outrageous proposal for her NYU application, she enlists Alex’s help to plan an over-the-top, epic proposal to someone else. Too bad the only prom date Alex wants anywhere near Bailey is him.
For a guy who seems to have it all, he’s about to lose the only thing he’s ever wanted.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Crush contains a cocky lacrosse player in over his head with his secret best friend, unexpected midnight kisses, swoon-worthy slow dancing, and movie-night cuddling that’ll make you ache. You’re going to want an Alex of your own!
I breathe in his Alex scent, spicy and a little sweet. Hair product and body spray, probably. I tilt my head back. His hair is a mess and there’s a crease between his closed eyes like he might be worried about something.
I’m the one who should be worried. I should roll quickly out of his arms, hopefully without waking him. But I can’t make myself do it. In fact, before I can stop myself, I lift my right hand and watch helplessly as it hovers near his face.
It’s taken on a life of its own, this hand. It grazes his cheek.
I’m in it now, if he wakes up, what will happen?

Stories like The Little House series, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Island of the Blue Dolphins and The Secret Garden, filled her imagination and fueled her dreams to be a writer.

Chris lives in Houston with one handsome husband, two beautiful daughters, and two freakshow cats. She has a fondness for the beach, her family and friends, and she still loves to read (especially curled up with a good cup of coffee!)
