Analee, in Real Life by Janelle Milanes
Analee doesn’t like to live in the real world. Her father has officially moved on from her mother’s death by marrying a yogi, she doesn’t like her soon to be stepsister and, her best friend isn’t speaking to her. However, Analee has a great life online where she is a warrior and has a potential boyfriend in her online friend, Harris. But when she agrees to be the fake girlfriend to soccer superstar, Seb, she must learn how to live in the world.
I love a good fake date book and Analee, In Real Love is a great fake date book. Analee is an awesome and strong main character. Her relationship Seb is, at times, sizzling. Plus, this is one of the few YA books that I have read that really highlights Cuban culture. The book is just really fun to read and I highly recommend it.
Coming Up for Air (Hundred Oaks Book 8) by Miranda Kenneally

Maggie decides that she is going to use the last few months of high school to have all of her perfect teen experiences and her best friends, Levi is going to help her. However, Maggie soon uncovers new feelings for her best friend. Can they move from friends to more?
I am a huge fan of Miranda Kenneally’s books and Coming Up For Air is a perfect example of why her books just work. Maggie and Levi’s journey from friends-with-benefits-to-possibly-love is steamy and their relationship is wonderfully realistic. This is the last book in the Hundred Oaks series and it should not be missed.
Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett
Zorie and Lennon used to be best friends but then they were almost more but now, after last homecoming, they are enemies. Zorie knows she should stay away from Lennon however she’s still drawn to him and when the two are stranded by their friends on a backcountry camping trip they must work together to find their way back to civilization. But the more time they spend alone together the more their feels begin to resurface. Can these two get over their past hurts to build a happy future?
This book is just fun. Zorie and Lennon are perfectly flirty with just a little wilderness camping to make it feel original. Their relationship is swoony and steamy and just a wee bit perfect. All the pieces come together to make a YA romance with a dash of family issues that is a must-read for fans of Sarah Dessen or Sarah Ockler.
