Today on the blog, I’m excited to share the cover of Clarisse David’s upcoming book, Keeping the Distance. I’ve been following her tweets and updates about this book, and color me curious with all the teasers. I also like the fact that this is set in Iloilo, the hometown of one of my LIs, and where I’m heading to this February. Yes, I’m definitely bringing a copy of Clarisse’s new book when I go there.
Keeping the Distance (I Heart Iloilo #1)
By Clarisse David
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: February 6, 2017
No bets. No fake relationships. Just a very real one that has to be kept under wraps.
Seventeen-year-old Melissa wants to dye her hair cotton candy pink and focus on her ukulele instead of Physics. But she can’t. As the daughter of a Catholic school principal, living up to her model student image 24/7 is a must. Something’s about to give under all the pressure. She only hopes it isn’t her.
Getting involved with a troublemaking basketball player is the last possible thing she needs…
Lance is used to getting what he wants. With a pretty face he uses to full advantage and his role as co-captain of the basketball team, the easy way is the only way he’s ever known. Until the day he notices the prim Melissa he’s known forever is actually hot and decides to ask her out. He has no idea he’s about to learn the lesson of a lifetime.
Not getting what he wants might exactly be what he needs.
