Author: Gerardo Delgadillo
Genre: YA Contemporary (adventure/romance)
Release date: June 20th, 2016

Book Description:
After his crush rejects him, seventeen-year-old Colton catches a plane to Mexico, hoping to forget all about girls. But a night out at a dance club crowded with long legs in miniskirts doesn't help, especially when he meets the club's beautiful DJ, Alex.

In awe of her mixing skills, Colton finds it hard to believe Alex is deaf. As they bond, she asks him to help her win a DJ contest behind her rich, estranged father's back.

Colton's not a wimp or anything, but millionaires with armed bodyguards are not his ideal vacation buddies. The only problem—if he helps her, he may fly back home in a body bag.

EXCERPT

ONE | MIRANDA

Can’t sleep ‘cause tomorrow’s my last day as a junior—last day to ask Miranda out on a date, and my hands are totally sweating, and my stomach’s shrunk to the size of a raisin. Thing is, I’ve been trying since freshman year, but every freaking time my brain goes on vacation.

Damn nerves.

Only thing left to do is write her something inspired and corny, let her read it. And wait for success. Or rejection. Or don’t-ask-me-out ever. Or…be positive, Colton. Sighing, I bring up my email on my cell and type.

Miranda

No. Backspace, backspace, backspace, backspace, backspace, backspace, backspace.

Dear Miranda,

A dog barking—the neighbor’s beagle—makes me look out my bedroom window at the moonlight shining on the rooftops. Hate that dog. Seems he only cares about howling and barking. Beagles should live in England and chase foxes and stuff, but no, people insist on having them living in their homes. Whatever. Concentrate. More typing.

Since the first time I saw you, I fell in lo

Argh. So corny. Backspace a thousand times. Start over.

You know what makes my world spin?
You. You’re my oxygen. My food. The ketchup on my fries.

Okay, this time I laugh at my own stupidity, but I’m onto something. Thing is, I don’t want her to think I’m a poet, ‘cause I hate poetry, corniness, and the like, but at the same time I want her radar to detect I’m not dumb.
