Kara Leigh Miller's Birthday Blitz Celebration!




            "Race you to the swimming hole," Tucker said as soon as our feet hit the ground.
             I squinted at him in the moonlight. "Are you gonna cheat like you always do?"
            "I ain't a cheat." He crossed his arms over his chest and stared at me. Then he took off on a dead run toward Old Man Potter's swimming hole. "Cheater!" I shouted as I ran after him, laughing. During a fair race I could beat him. Barely, but I could. When he cheated like this, though, I didn't stand a chance against him. He was too far ahead of me. So, I simply ran after him.
            "You're not even trying," he said once I reached him.
            I playfully shoved him and he yanked me into his arms, wrapping them around my back and squeezing me to him. "Remember this place?"
            With a chuckle, I said, "Of course I remember this place. We spent every summer here when we were kids." Man, Tucker was acting really weird tonight. So was Levi.
            "Yeah, but that's not what I'm talking about. This is where we shared our first kiss."
            Oh yeah. Technically, they'd been in the water when they'd had their first kiss, but it was here. She remembered that day clearly—it was the day they'd returned from California. It was the first time she'd seen him in three years. That kiss had shocked her, and it had changed her life.
            "Happy Birthday, Al," he said, lowering his lips to mine and giving me a long, soft kiss. When he released me, he reached into his pocket and pulled out a small black box.
            I disengaged myself from his hold and took the box. Inside was a turquoise colored rope-like chain with a mermaid charm hanging from the center of it. I looked up at him and smiled. "It's beautiful, Tuck. Thank you." I kissed his cheek.
            Tucker entwined our fingers. "C'mon, we have another stop to make."

The Georgia Corbins by Kara Leigh Miller 
Ali Philips never thought anything could be more devastating than the day Levi and Tucker Corbin, her two best friends—her only friends—moved away. Three years passed without a single phone call, text message, or email from them and she’s resolved to the fact that she will probably never see them again. Until one morning when she comes face-to-face with Levi Corbin in physics class. 

Little does she know, the Corbins have returned to Haldeen with only one thing on their minds: winning Ali’s heart. Ali soon finds herself in the middle of a love triangle she doesn’t want any part of. As she tries to reclaim the friendships she’s lost and to adjust to the unfamiliar feelings she’s having, she struggles with making the one decision that will forever change their lives: Levi or Tucker Corbin? 

She’s always had a special bond with Tucker and feels most comfortable when she’s with him. But Levi brings her to life in a way she didn’t think was possible and makes her feel things she didn’t think she would ever feel. Torn between the two, Ali is certain of only one thing–by the time it’s over, she’ll lose one of her best friends.
