Anniversary Celebration of Delicate by Steph Campbell with giveaway


Title: Delicate
Author: Steph Campbell
Age: Mature YA
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: July 2012


Book Description:

Sydney Pierce has just met the guy of her dreams…just don’t tell her psycho boyfriend, Trevor.

With a gorgeous boyfriend, a thriving gymnastics career and a stellar academic record, anyone would assume that Sydney has it all. That's precisely what the seventeen-year-old perfectionist wants you to believe, and she works hard to keep up the pretense. Especially now that there are cameras following her for a documentary on Olympic hopefuls.

When Grant, the charming new student, disrupts her carefully crafted routine, the cracks beneath her perfect façade begin to rise to the surface and despite Trevor's objections to their friendship, she can't stay away from him.

As her connection to Grant pulls her closer to him, the once lighthearted relationship with Trevor takes an intense and dark turn, forcing her into a position in which not only her happiness, but her safety is at stake. Can Sydney learn to let go of everything she is clinging to in order to gain everything she has ever wanted, or will she realize her breaking point too late?

Excerpt:

“You’re not going to believe this,” I say.

Quinn smirks. “Uh-oh, what’d the douche-nozzle do this time?”

“Quinn, seriously, just listen.”

She listens wide-eyed as I air my Trevor-Grant drama. Omitting the teeny-tiny kiss, so

small, it isn’t even worth mentioning. Or Grant’s comment about wanting to do it again.

My stomach flops remembering that detail of our conversation.

When I finish, Quinn smirks.

“You should totally break up with Trevor and go for Grant!”

“Come on! I’m upset here!”

“I know you are. And I so wish that I had your problems!” she snickers. “But seriously,

Syd. What the hell? Possessive much? Why did Trevor do that?”

I lean back in my chair and cross my arms over my chest.

“I don’t know. It does bother me that Trevor confronted him. But what bothers me even

more is Grant’s comment about me deserving better. Who does he think he is?” I slam

my English book onto my desk in frustration and everyone near me turns to stare.

“Well, Syd, I hate to say that I agree with him, but you know I do,” she shrugs. Her lips

twitch like she’s fighting off a smile. I sort of dislike my best friend right now.

I know how she feels about Trevor, but she has no good reason for it, so I refuse to

listen. He’s never been anything but nice to her. Grant has just strolled right into my life

and made a huge mess of everything. From this second on, I refuse to let him do it any

longer.

“Seriously, Quinn, give it a rest,” I say. My tone nears callous. Quinn, her eyebrows

raised in shock, shakes her head before turning to face forward.

I sigh and let my tense shoulders fall, feeling more than defeated. Not only has Grant

caused and argument between me and Trevor, but that sparked a fight with my best

friend as well. Super.
