Sweet Evil author Wendy Higgins captivates with this fresh romance filled with alluring chemistry and coming-of-age tension. This 96-page novella of unrequited love between sophomore Ryan “The Kid” McPhearson, who makes the varsity baseball team and finds himself immersed in the life of upperclassmen, and the untouchable senior Brooke Bennet is rife with emotion.
Maybe to the outside world a two-year age difference doesn’t matter, but this is high school. Everything matters. Higgins’s deeply felt characters are tested with romantic highs and lows that are powerful, poignant, and keep us wanting more. And this includes a hot teaser chapter from the much-anticipated Sweet Peril, the second book in Higgins’s paranormal Sweet Evil series.
