Today I have another excerpt for you, this time from London Falling by T.A. Foster which was released on 14 January 2014.
About the Book:
It’s London’s senior year and she only needs one class to graduate. She just didn’t expect her final assignment: fall in love.
Communication 224 has a reputation for giving out the most unique projects of the semester. When London James and Beau Anderson signed up for the class they had no idea they would be paired up together, much less spend an entire semester working on their final grade.
Professor Garcia tasks them to produce a study on the hit reality show, Love Match, a show about strangers falling in love on over the top dates. London and Beau decide to debunk the popular show’s fantasy portrayal of romance. Determined they can date the entire semester and not fall for each other, the classmates share blogs about their dates and start a website where everyone can follow their dating experiment.
Is staying out of love as easy as it seems? Headstrong and success-driven London discovers there might be more important things in life than an A.
I pressed my body against his back and let my cheek rest against his shirt. He squeezed my hand before revving the bike and whipping us out of the parking lot. We had stopped talking, but not communicating.
When we pulled into my driveway the lights were out at the house. Nina was probably asleep and Candace was still at Pearce’s place.
I swung my leg off of the bike and looked at Beau. Standing next to him felt different. I wasn’t ready for our fake date to be over. There was something stirring in me that had been swirling for weeks. I ran through a quick list of ways to stall, but all I could focus on were those lips and dark eyes. My mind was a total blank.
“Good night, London.” Beau fit his helmet on over his head and closed the sun visor.
Just as I was taking a step to the side to let him roll the bike backward, he reached up and traced the side of my face. I hesitated, not sure how to stop him from leaving, but just as quickly as he made the gesture he rolled out of the driveway and down Mallette Street.
I felt the stirring sensation as he drove away. Shit! No. No. No. Nina was so right. I had a crush on Beau Anderson.

Her long love affair with books started at an early age, and as soon as she was able, she transformed imaginative stories into words on paper. Time Spell is T.A.’s debut novel, and the first in a series about a very adventurous, clever, and magical girl named Ivy.
