Kasie’s Featured Titles

Love, Life, and the List

Abby has not-so-secret but definitely unrequited feelings for her best friend, Cooper, so what better way to change his heart than to make him complete a summer long check list of activities with her.

Listen to Your Heart

When her best friend convinces Kate to join their high school’s podcast, she is not expecting to be chosen as the host of the on-air advice show, but here she is, stuck doling out her opinion on homework, cheese, and…love.

Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss

Lacey is living her dream—starring alongside Hollywood’s hottest actor in a movie—but an annoying tutor, some onset sabotage, and an overprotective father are intent on destroying everything.

Maybe This Time

Sophie works for a local flower shop in a small town, which means she’s at every single event. And she knows every single person attending. Until, that is, Andrew, the son of a famous chef, waltzes into town with his stylish clothes and citified attitude, intent on flipping the local catering menu and Sophie’s life (apparently) on its head one event at a time.
