Mina V. Esguerra, AKA #romanceclass’ fairy godmother and mentor, is releasing a new book this April! Find out what it’s about, and check out the pretty cover below!
You know that feeling when you’re like… working with a super tight schedule but everything is still slowly falling into place and it’s just awesome? YUP, that’s how I’m feeling right now, because YAY–it’s finally cover reveal day for my latest book, Waiting in the Wings! (In case you missed it, here’s the book’s backstory. ^_^)
And without further ado…
Keeping the Distance (I Heart Iloilo #1)
By Clarisse David
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: February 6, 2017
No bets. No fake relationships. Just a very real one that has to be kept under wraps.
Seventeen-year-old Melissa wants to dye her hair cotton candy pink and focus on her ukulele instead of Physics. But she can’t. As the daughter of a Catholic school principal, living up to her model student image 24/7 is a must. Something’s about to give under all the pressure. She only hopes it isn’t her.
Getting involved with a troublemaking basketball player is the last possible thing she needs…
Lance is used to getting what he wants. With a pretty face he uses to full advantage and his role as co-captain of the basketball team, the easy way is the only way he’s ever known. Until the day he notices the prim Melissa he’s known forever is actually hot and decides to ask her out. He has no idea he’s about to learn the lesson of a lifetime.
Not getting what he wants might exactly be what he needs.
You can find Keeping the Distance on Goodreads
