Top Five Reasons Andrea is Excited For This Series:
1. I like the concept of series revolving around an island full of different characters.

3. There is sure to be a lot of drama and tension.
4. I've always wanted to live on an island.
5. I typically enjoy author collaborations.
An exclusive California island, a tumultuous senior year, and lots of sandy beaches.
Laguna Tides is a private island off the coast of Laguna Beach, California. It's a refuge for the families of the rich and famous, but it's also home to Laguna Tides Prep and that is where our soon-to-come series of young adult contemporary novels is set.
A couple of years ago, my good friend Lani Woodland came to me with ideas for two different novellas she wanted to co-author with me. By the time we'd plotted everything out, we'd created an entire world and it would take five full novels to tell the whole story. Over the course of 2015 and 2016, Lani and I will finally get the chance to introduce the island of Laguna Tides and take readers through the senior year of five of the boys who live there.
First up on , meet Dare Andrews and Chance Montgomery in Taken by Chance.
A single chance encounter can change your life.
Despite being the son of Hollywood’s hottest director, Dare Andrews has managed to steer clear of the paparazzi for seventeen years. But when his ex-girlfriend sells a tell-all interview to the tabloids, he’s suddenly hounded by fans and reporters alike. Dare is getting cynical fast, so he’s unprepared to meet a glass-half-full girl like Chance. And unprepared for the consequences after he helps her save face. Pretending to be the new guy in her life was easy enough when she was being dumped by her boyfriend, but the lie backfires.What started as a random act of chivalry becomes something deeper as Dare and Chance find themselves trapped in their charade. The problem is that the more Dare gets to know Chance, the less fake their relationship feels. But secrets they both keep threaten their future, and with new storms overhead, will Chance’s lessons in optimism be enough to help Dare find the silver lining?
