Fresh Catch by Kate Canterbary  

Fresh Catch by Kate Canterbary

Take a vacation, they said. Get away from Silicon Valley’s back-stabbing and power-grabbing. Recharge the innovative batteries. Unwind, then come back stronger than ever. Instead, I got lost at sea and fell in love with an anti-social lobsterman. There’s one small issue: Owen Bartlett doesn’t know who I am. Who I really am.

I don’t like people. I avoid small talk and socializing, and I kick my companions out of bed before the sun rises. No strings, no promises, no problems… Read more.

So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.

Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams… Read more.
