About Styx & Stones
A heartbreaking mature YA novel from the author of the bestselling contemporary romance Harley & Rose

Cancer sucks … and then you die.

Alaska Stone is a walking wet dream.
My wet dream.

For years, I’ve watched her in the halls, wanted her, but she never knew I existed.

Not until she walked into my chemo session.

For me, it was love at first sight.
For her? It might take a little longer.

But hey, it’s not like we’re on a deadline or anything.

An Excerpt from Styx & Stones
“Come here,” Styx says, giving my arm a weak tug.
         
“Where?”
         
“Come lie with me.”
         
 I laugh and shake my head. “I can’t. I’ll squash your lines.”
         
“They’re plastic; they’ll bounce back.” His face turns serious, and the desperation in his eyes claws at my resolve. “Get your sweet ass up here, Stones. I wanna hold my girl.”

It takes a little maneuvering with his central line and heart-rate monitor, and my IV, but eventually I settle in against his side and he wraps his good arm around me, holding me as tightly as his weak body will allow.
         
I wish we had the power to make time wait for us.
         
I’d make it wait forever, right here. I’d use up all of the seconds it’s stolen from me, from us, and the lifetime it’s going to steal from our future. If I had the ability, I’d hit pause right here, and I’d never let him go.
