Summary: 

Wallflower (wohl-flou-erh): Identifier for someone who is shy and/or awkward. For reference, see Viola Kent.
 
Seventeen-year-old Viola Kent likes being invisible. Well, not literally, but she’s content being a loner, reading her books, and hanging out with the animals at the shelter. She just wants to keep her head down and get through her senior year at Durham High.
 
Driving Dare Frost to school every day wasn’t part of the plan.
 
And when Viola finds out her dad recruited Dare, his number one player, to be her friend?
 
Her inner Slytherin demands revenge.
 
The solution: Get Dare to be her fake boyfriend.
 
Convincing the star athlete to pretend is easier than she’d thought it would be. The hard part is protecting her heart. With every word, touch, and kiss, Viola’s feelings become more real.

The problem: Viola knows she’s falling for Dare—but he doesn’t believe in love.

 

This book features two sets of soulmates, one happy pooch named Hermione, so many sizzling kisses and answers the question:

Can a dork and a jock fake their way to true love?

Excerpt:

“Come on, Dare.  Show me your moves.  Or did you run out already?”

Dare walked toward me until the top of my thighs hit the couch cushion.  “I’ve got a ton of moves, flower.  We haven’t even tried half of them.”

I blinked.  “Really?”

He nodded.  “I’m just trying to ease you into this, make sure you’re comfortable.  I don’t want to move too fast.”

Please, do, I thought.

The words that came out of my mouth were, “I’ll believe it when I see it.”

It had sounded good, quippy and totally aloof in my head.

But Dare took it as a challenge.

“I’m going to enjoy this,” Dare said.

Before I could respond, he gripped the backs of my legs and lifted slightly, making me gasp and throw my arms about his neck.  In the next instant, I was balanced on the couch back, my legs on either side of his hips as he took a step forward.  There hadn’t been that much space between us to begin with.  So, the next thing I knew his body was mere inches away from mine.

My cheeks flamed, and he drank in my reaction.

What inspired you to write this book? 

Hi there!  I’m Cookie O’Gorman, and I write YA & NA romance.  I was inspired to write WALLFLOWER because I loved the idea of this awkward, shy (until you talk to her 😊) girl having to drive Mr. Popular, the star jock, to school every day.  And then, I wondered what would the girl do when she finds out her dad asked this guy to be her friend lol?  It just seemed like a such a fun story idea, and my characters Viola and Dare won my heart, so of course, I had to write their happily-ever-after! 

What is your favorite thing about Viola?  What about Dare? 

I love Viola for her amazing heart and because she’s a hopeless romantic, Harry Potter fanatic and dog lover.  And I love Dare because he is just…sigh.  Dare is so charismatic, thoughtful, funny, kind, and such an awesome, perfectly imperfect guy. That’s definitely more than one thing for each of them, but I couldn’t pick just one lol!

Please describe your book, WALLFLOWER, in three words? 

Swoon-worthy. Fun. Romantic.

What was your favorite scene to write? 

I loved every scene with Viola & Dare.  Though the kissing ones were particularly fun to write!

What do you hope readers gain from reading WALLFLOWER? 

I hope WALLFOWER makes readers laugh, sigh, and smile.  I hope they finish Viola & Dare’s story with a feeling of giddiness and an undeniable case of the warm fuzzies.  And I hope it makes everyone who reads it believe in happily-ever-after 😊.

Synthia (Syn) Wade is a teenage girl who struggles with cystic fibrosis, an incurable life-threatening disease. One day she is pushed into a pond by an unseen figure and wakes up in a new world – a mysterious garden where illness and death don’t exist.

Welcomed by the garden’s residents and now free of her symptoms, Syn decides to stay. But, before long, she realizes that this apparent utopia holds many dangers and dark secrets.

Surrounding the garden is a fog that Syn is warned never to enter. She encounters bizarre creatures that defy reason.
