In Every Way by Amy Sparling
(Website, Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads)on September 13th 2016
It’s the start of summer and Josh Graham will be working at his parent’s surf shop. When his best friend Colby goes on vacation, Josh is stuck working with Bryce—and all of Bryce’s terrible ideas for summer. They make a list of what the “perfect girlfriend” would be like, and now they plan to find her. It shouldn’t be too hard, since Josh is one of the hottest, most popular guys in school. Right?
Bess Navarre would rather read a book than go outside. She’s chubby, dorky, and a self-proclaimed loser. But when her grandmother volunteers her to work at a jewelry kiosk on the beach, Bess has to comply, no matter how humiliating it is. Bikinis and Bess do not go together, and now she feels even dorkier than ever.
When Bess and Josh’s paths collide, sparks fly. But it won’t be that easy. Bryce wants Josh to date a supermodel. And although Bess might just fit all of the things on Josh’s list, she won’t give herself a chance to figure it out.
I’ve never felt better.
And then a football comes flying from out of nowhere and smacks me in the shoulder so hard, I’m knocked straight to the sand. I cry out in pain and shock, the impact seeming to hurt more with each passing second. Panicked thoughts fly through my mind.
Did someone hit me on purpose?
Am I about to be made fun of for going out in public with even a shred of confidence?
I’m on my ass in the sand, my shoulder killing me from the pain, and all I’m thinking about is how mortified I am to be in public right now. Someone calls out an apology and I look up to see a guy with short brown hair running toward me. He’s wearing blue board shorts and no shirt, and all I can say is the tan looks really good on him.
“Shit, I’m so sorry,” he says, stopping in front of me. I realize now that he’s actually talking to me, not just running by on some other mission.
“It’s fine,” I say, scrambling to stand up in the sand. “No big deal.”
But even as the words leave my mouth, I’m struggling to hold back tears. I bend and pick up the football, holding it out to the guy. He seems really familiar, but then again, all of the hot guys at Robert Cullen High School look alike. Just a bunch of muscled, tall, Greek gods walking around the place. “Here’s your ball.”
He takes it and drops it to the sand, his focus on me instead. “Are you sure you’re okay? Where did you get hit?”
I look at him like he’s lost his damn mind. Why on earth would any guy stare at me with that much concern? I mean, it’s not like he actually cares.
But weirdly, as he watches me with concern in his eyes, I’d almost think that maybe he does.
