Mackenzie and Landon were the perfect couple . . . until he dumped her and broke her heart. Fast-forward a year and they’re back where they first met—Serenity Ranch and Spa, where they are once again working together for the summer. Talk about awkward.
Then, Landon takes a nasty fall and gets amnesia. Suddenly, he’s stuck in the past—literally. His most recent memory is of last summer, when he and Mack were still together, so now he’s calling her pet names and hanging all over her. It’s the perfect chance for revenge. The plan is simple: keep Landon at arm’s length, manipulate him so he’s the one falling love, and then BAM, dump him. There’s just one problem: Mack can’t fall for Landon all over again.
The If Only romance line is all about wanting what you can’t have, and Mandy Hubbard’s hilarious break-up/love story is sure to captivate anyone who has ever wished for a second shot at love.
Do you think the new adult market has in any way damaged teens perception of ‘romance’?
Well, No. For one, those books are almost entirely published by adult publishers/imprints and marketed to 20somethings and older. Sure, teens find them– just like they find Mary Higgins Clark and Stephen King–but that’s not the target audience. And yes, these books often feature very dark secrets, or pasts, or whatnot, but ultimately, just like the contemporary romance books (NA is generally published by romance imprints), the books are about characters who find their way while falling in love. The love helps them heal, not hurts them.
