Nothing has been the same since Caleb Becker left a party drunk, got behind the wheel and hit Maggie Armstrong. Even after months of painful physical therapy, Maggie walks with a limp. Her social life is nil and a scholarship to study abroad - her chance to escape everyone and their pitying stares - has been cancelled. 

After a year in juvenile jail, Caleb's free ...if freedom means endless nagging from a transition coach and the prying eyes of the entire town. 

Coming home should feel good, but his family and ex-girlfriend seem like strangers. 

Return to ParadiseBut despite the horror of their shared history, somehow Caleb and Maggie can't seem to stay away from each other, with the heat and attraction between them becoming undeniable to them both.

Feeling like outsiders, they find comfort in each other, they realise that sometimes the person who hurts you most, can be the person who heals you too. Available now on; Amazon UK / Amazon US

Don't forget to check out the stunning sequel; Return to Paradise!
Available now on Amazon UK / Amazon US

Simone ElkelesAuthor Bio: 
Simone Elkeles is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of novels for teens. Simone’s books have won many awards including being YALSA Top Ten Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers, being named to the YALSA Popular Paperbacks and Teens Top Ten lists, and added to the Illinois “Read for a Lifetime” Reading List. Simone also won the coveted RITA award from the Romance Writers of America for her book Perfect Chemistry. Simone is especially proud of the fact that the Illinois Association of Teachers of English named her Author of the Year. 

Simone was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, where she still lives today.She loves animals (she has two dogs – a labradoodle and a German Shepherd), kids (she also has two of those) and her family. In her spare time she’s the Hockey Mom for her kids hockey teams and is an active Girl Scout leader specially trained in outdoor education. She also spends time mentoring other teen and adult authors. (She also loves sushi, which you can probably tell by reading her books.) Simone writes about teens because she was a teen in the 80’s (when spiked hair and blue eye shadow were “rad”) and she loves writing about those exciting teen relationships and romances.

Ahhh I kind of like the UK covers even though I'm not sure if they truly capture the essence of the story. I read these books a while ago and I LOVED them so much! :-))

Can I just say what a relief to find someone that really knows what they are discussing online.
You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
More and more people have to read this and understand this side of your story.
I was surprised you are not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.

First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a difficult time clearing
my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however
it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just
trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?

An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.
I do think that you need to publish more about this issue, it may
not be a taboo matter but generally people don't discuss these subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!
