New adult and college romance BOOKS
What would you do if you got a second chance at true love? When Eunice Rysner meets the sexy Jake Castellano, she already knows he’s going to be trouble. Though she tries to push him away to spare them both a lot of heartache, Jake is persistent. But his vindictive girlfriend and Eu’s nemesis since eighth grade, Geri Thompson, is determined to keep him all to herself-by whatever means necessary.
Even twenty years later, when the three meet up again in Long Island at their high school reunion, Eunice-now a successful novelist-can’t deny the feelings she still has for Jake. As she reacquaints herself with the now-divorced love of her life, she can’t help but wonder if this is finally the time to stand up for herself and give in to true love. But if she does, Geri may just steal everything she’s ever wanted from her yet again.
Meet author Laurie Oknowsky
Laurie began writing at a young age - mostly recording her life in a journal. Then a couple years later she would write poetry and quotes. Not truly realizing where that would take her, at first she didn’t share her writing until her senior year in high school. She was surprised how well her poetry was received.
Writing was always a secret passion - never thinking she’d be taken seriously, she kept it to herself until college. After failed majors she settled on English, a cover up to what she really wanted to do - write professionally.
As she was a community writer on both Wattpad and Inkitt, she didn’t give much thought of getting published traditionally until she was starting to see she was trending and began to see themselves in her fictional characters.
