Two Roads by L.M. Augustine
The cover for Two Roads will be revealed on July 25th
The only person poetry-loving Cali Monroe hates more than herself is Logan Waters, the geeky kid who lives in the dorm building next to hers.
Ever since Cali's parents told her she would amount to nothing, she has felt entirely inadequate. Friendless and alone, she takes on the mean girl role in hopes it will make her feel better--and Logan serves as the perfect target. He infuriates her with his obnoxiously long lashes, his all too perfect dimpled smile, and his complete lack of personality outside of his intelligence. So she begins hating him, and he returns the favor. Thus, their prank-filled, insult-driven rivalry is born, and torturing Logan quickly becomes the highlight of her life.
But when Cali's parents set them up on a blind date, she begins to realize Logan might not be as boring as she always thought. He shares her love of poetry, takes a sadistic pleasure in making fun of crepes, and he makes her blush when he calls her smile pretty.
And hey, maybe those long lashes of his aren't that obnoxious after all…
Two Roads is New Adult Romance about finding love, standing out, and learning to embrace who you are. It contains some language and mild sexual content.

I guess you could say hating Logan Waters has become my favorite hobby. You might even argue that I derive some form of screwed-up, sadistic pleasure from it, or that I have nothing else to do with my life so instead I spend it trolling random, math-loving twenty-year-old boys. Those wouldn't exactly be lies. I mean, it’s not like I spend all of my free time outside of his window, popcorn and stalker binoculars in hand, scribbling down every possible unflattering thing he does to make me feel better about myself, but every once in a while I do still catch myself watching him study from some insanely advanced text book on a Saturday night or laughing with one of his three friends over jokes I can only imagine got old in third grade, and then, as if it's nothing, I insult him about it time and time again in my head. It's almost a game at this point. I make fun of him to my friends, to my roommate, and even to complete strangers--that's just how it is between us.
Is he a freak? Check.
Mostly friendless? Check.
The complete, cliché, book smart but totally personality-less nerd? Double check.
He's infuriating, honestly, to be that intelligent, immature, and boring of a person. So in a way, you can't blame me for hating him. It's only the natural reaction of anyone who so much as lays eyes on Logan Waters. And, like with anything in my life, if insulting him keeps my mind off of my parents and near-failing grades, I'll take it.
