#1 NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling Author

Dear Reader,

Before Summer Ends is available today in print and ebook! It came out in September 2020 as an Audible exclusive, so if you haven’t listened to it between September and now, you haven’t read it. I adored writing this story, pure, uplifting romance. Nissa has had a crush on her brother’s best friend for years. So far, she’s held it together pretty well—he has no idea about her feelings. But how is she supposed to keep them a secret when she’s going to be living in his house the whole summer?

A long, hot summer with her secret crush… What could possibly go wrong?

Nissa Lang knows Desmond Stilling is out of her league. He’s a CEO, she’s a teacher. He’s gorgeous, she’s…not. So when her house-sitting gig falls through and Desmond offers her a place to stay for the summer, she vows not to reveal how she’s felt about him since their first—and only—kiss.

Desmond should’ve known better than to bring temptation into his house. He decided long ago that his best friend’s sister was too sweet, too good, for him. She deserves a guy who can give his heart. For her sake, he’s stayed away. But as her laughter breathes life into his lonely mansion, he’s not sure how long he’ll be able to resist.
