Title: Level Up 
Author: Cathy Yardley

Geeky introvert Tessa Rodriguez will do whatever it takes to get promoted to video game engineer– including create a fandom-based video game in just three weeks. The only problem is, she can’t do it alone. Now, she needs to strong-arm, cajole, and otherwise socialize with her video game coworkers, especially her roommate, Adam, who’s always been strictly business with her. The more they work together, though, the closer they get…

Adam London has always thought of his roomie Tessa as “one of the guys” until he agreed to help her with this crazy project. Now, he’s thinking of her all the time… and certainly as something more than just a roommate! But his last girlfriend broke up with him to follow her ambitions, and he knows that Tessa is obsessed with getting ahead in the video game world.

Going from friends to something more is one hell of a challenge. Can Tessa and Adam level up their relationship to love?

ONE TRUE PAIRING available today!

Title: One True Pairing 
Author: Cathy Yardley

They couldn’t be more opposite, the Hollywood actor and the hometown girl, but all they need is a little convention magic to become the perfect ship in Cathy Yardley’s One True Pairing.

Jake Reese needs a decoy girlfriend. Fast. The lead actor of the popular TV show, Mystics, is tired of losing his shirt to overeager fans. Literally. Which is why a chance meeting with gothabilly bookworm-slash-barista Hailey Frost seems almost too perfect to be true. Hailey is not impressed with his TV fame and is desperate to save her family’s bookstore. It’s a match made in Hollywood, but as the two pretend to date, fan fiction becomes reality. Can this OTP become canon?

Excerpt from Level Up:

“You’re welcome to join us,” he said, although from the sounds of it, he clearly didn’t expect her to. “There will be gaming, some new stuff Abraham’s bringing over. Rumor has it there will be Quidditch pong. Whatever that is.”

Tess smiled. “Thanks. I’ll, um, think about it.”

“Just wanted to give you a heads up.” He waved to Ani, then closed the door again.

Tess spun on Ani. “Like our girl here?” she asked. “Really? Really?”

Ani grinned wickedly. “If that guy was in the house with me,” she said, “I’d ride him like a ten-speed.”

Tessa shook her head. “You suck, Ani.”

“I’m sure I would,” Ani purred.

“Perv,” Tess said, finally laughing. “Anyway, I’m not going after Adam.”

“Fine,” she relented. “But I’m serious, Tess. When you decide you want something, you go for it. I know how hard it was for you to pay for college, and get the degree, and get the job. I know you’ll get your goal of being an engineer, if you want it badly enough. You are relentless.”

“Thanks,” Tess said, warming at her friend’s support.

“But it won’t be enough,” Ani continued. “You need more people, more connection, even as an introvert. If you won’t be that dedicated about getting into a relationship, at least broaden your circle. I worry about you.” She smiled sadly. “Maybe you should put some of that focus on people, not just programming. For your own sake.”

“I’ll be okay, but thanks.” Tess smiled.

“Promise me you’ll go hang out at that party a bit.”

Tessa’s smile dropped. “Wait, what?”

“Seriously. Promise me you’ll go down to that party. I will check up on you and hassle you mercilessly when I see you, and I’ll know if you didn’t. You suck at lying.”

Tessa rolled her eyes. “Fine,” she said. Ani had called her relentless, but Tessa knew better. Ani could out-relentless Genghis Khan.

“But don’t go wearing that,” Ani added.

Tessa looked down at her T-shirt—something she’d gotten from The Bloggess, with the statement: Feeling Stabby. “Why? What’s wrong with this?”

“If I have to explain it, you won’t understand,” Ani said. “Wear something that puts the goods on display, okay?”

“I’m an A cup. I don’t have goods.”

“Just wear something that looks like you meant to wear it!” Ani groused. “And would it kill you to wear makeup?”

“I am not wearing makeup to play Quidditch pong.”

Ani paused. “Good point. All right. Go forth, get your flirt on. And report back.”
