Laney Walker is a quick witted, athletic, southern tomboy who lets few get too close, using her sarcastic zingers to deflect. She also has no idea how others view her, Evan having protected and coveted her since they were children. But college puts a gap between Laney and Evan that neither of them were prepared for- old relationships are tested, new ones are formed and nothing will ever be the same.
Especially when in walks one Dane Kendrick, not at all the familiar, southern charmer of home, but an animal all his own.
More than, and not just, a love triangle; a story of growing up, friendship, loyalty, first love, primal love...and life.
Please note that Emerge will be available on Barnes and Noble on or around August 20th.

EVAN (Original opening to Chapter 3, Evan's POV.)
I see Kaitlyn bounding down the stairs first. She’s a cool girl, good ball player…excellent friend to Laney; by far her best trait. She’s pretty enough, but nothing, and I mean nothing, could have prepared me for the vision right behind her.
Laney looks beautiful every time I see her; uniform covered in dirt and sweaty, just woke up with sleep in the corners of her eyes, fished all day ponytail and smelly…but this Laney takes the cake.
Her dark blonde hair hangs past her shoulders, and tonight it has a little curl to it. Her huge brown eyes are filled with self- doubt and not really meeting mine, but I think she has on make-up, so they stand out more than usual. Her perfect little mouth looks pink and shiny, and when her tongue glides over her lips nervously, every nerve in my body comes alive. There’s a slight blush spreading across her tan, heart shaped face, and I can’t think of anything I’ve ever seen that even comes close.
My eyes move down her body shamelessly and I can only will my own not to give me away at this point. DAMN, I will have to steal and burn all of her t-shirts, cause I’d rather go blind than to never see this sight again. Her shirt is light green and it looks soft; touchable. The short sleeves show off her toned, tan arms and the low neckline is hinting a path to the most gorgeous pair of breasts I’ve only ever imagined.
And just when I thought I couldn’t love anyone more than the creator of Laney’s favorite yoga pants, my eyes go to her jeans. Sweet mother of… they fit like her second skin, with little jewels on the pockets, drawing the eyes to the finest ass in the world. I take in those 5’6 legs all the way down and I see the boots; that’s my girl.
Well, that settles it; I am not letting her out of my sight tonight. I can barely walk right now, let alone chase her around a party, and I’m already picturing the fights in my head. Laney may think she’s invisible, but her unattainable air and smokin’ body make her the talk of the locker room more often than she’d believe. When the guys see her tonight, they’ll know their imaginations had nothing on the real thing, and I’ll have my hands full standing guard.
No other guy is getting near her, over my dead body. Maybe, just maybe, tonight will be the night. The night where all the stars finally align and my coward ass finally tells her how I feel.
Here goes nothin’.
