All I've Never Wanted
Release Date: 06/15/15
Summary from Goodreads:
 
The Scions were the four richest, most powerful guys at Valesca Academy, and they rule
d the school with iron fists. Everyone wanted to date them or be them...everyone, that is, except Maya Lindberg, who just wanted to avoid them until she could graduate.
 
She almost succeeded, until an ill-advised outburst on her part put her right in the Scions' path. Just like that, one became her fake boyfriend, one her unwanted matchmaker, one her guardian angel, and the one she couldn't stand the most? Yeah, he's her new housemate.
 
A Young Adult romantic comedy that explores what happens when a girl gets everything she never asked for, including a puppy, a new wardrobe, and, possibly, even true love.

EXCERPT: EXCERPT #3

 

My jaw dropped. “What? You can’t just—just go around, calling other people’s families!” I spluttered. “Besides, I have homework!”

 

“You’re such a nerd,” Parker complained. “Stop stressing. It’ll be fun. Besides, it won’t take that long.” He paused. “Actually, knowing Adri, it’ll take very long.”

 

I crossed my arms over my chest, disgruntled. “What will be fun.?”

 

Parker came to a stop and pointed at something out the window. I followed his gaze and gasped when I saw the huge, gleaming private jet idling on the tarmac we were currently parked by.

 

“That will be.”

 

“A jet?” I couldn’t help but be a bit awed at the sight. This was the first time I’ve ever seen a private jet outside of my living room TV. am“Why—why do we need a jet?”

 

Parker turned off the engine. “Homecoming’s coming up and Adri decided it’s time to find an outfit,” he explained. “And since you’re my girlfriend now, you can’t exactly go to homecoming in any old dress from the mall.”

 

I stared at him warily. “So where are we going?”

 

“Relax.” He ruffled my hair. “We’re just taking a short trip to New York.”
