  • Safety in the Friendzone

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    Charley and Zane had been best friends since he’d found the broken board in the fence between their houses at the age of four. Sleep overs in the backyard had turned into sleepovers in his treehouse into sleepovers in one of their rooms when they both decided sleeping closer to a toilet was actually great.

    Zane and Charley were just friends until his girlfriend dumps him and there’s the beginnings of a spark. But they’ve grown a little apart in recent years and ne... more

  • Damned if I do

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    The devil always collects. And so does his son.


    Most guys like their dads.
    Most guys aren't the son of the literal devil.

    When Daddy Dearest tells me its unseemly for the last living son of the Lord of Hell to be unmarried, I hate to think who he has in mind. Until, I remember I’m technically already married. Yeah, she’s human and I was all of eight at the time. But, still counts.

    No... more

  • the Romeo + Juliet Experiment

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    Get a little taste of what my YA books have to offer with a Pithy Pooka: a series of complete, standalone shorts. 

    Girl + guy + three days = greatest love story ever.
    Yeah, right.

    Jess Clayton had no interest in romance. The teen cynic was convinced it was all a ruse made up to lure you into stupidity and part you from your hard-earned pennies. No matter how many people asked her out – not that there was a line or anything – she refuse... more

  • Caden

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    I spent six years away, part of an elite unit, fighting for my life every day and trying to take my mind off the girl I’d always loved.
    But, when an accident sends me home, I realise it might be time to shed some secrets and tell her I love her, I’ve always loved her.
    I just have to hope I haven’t waited too long. And that her three big brothers, the only family I have left, aren’t the thing that finally manage to kill me.
    I n... more

  • Chaos & the Geek

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    How do you politely refuse when the only guy to star in any of your dirty fantasies has just offered to put you up for the foreseeable future and your brother’s just accepted like you were in fact still thirteen and couldn’t make decisions for yourself? You don’t. And, you end up with a roommate who wears a very good elegant mask over the rough and tumble, bad boy core I remember far too well.

    Only, it’s ten years later and I&rsqu... more

  • Oscar

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    She’d been part of my life for over a decade, slowly becoming as much my friend as Lucy’s. But it was becoming harder to hide my attraction to her. She was full of life, outgoing, loud, not a virgin. All the things I wasn’t. How could a guy not be drawn to her?
    She was my first kiss. My first crush. She’s become an honorary Sykes girl. But I wished for more. I wanted her to be my Sykes girl. If only I knew how to talk to girls.
    But... more

  • Rollie & the Rocker

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    As the female bassist in an otherwise all-male rockband, I had an image to maintain – relaxed, laidback, available. One-Night Nora was what the headlines called me and I relished it. My freedom meant everything to me and that freedom had become my brand. Until I get a stalker and our manager hires a dude from Grace Grayson.

    I’ve heard they’re the most satisfying firm in the country and I’m more than happy to give their reputation a... more

  • the Trouble with Hate is...

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    …it’s easier.
    …it’s safer.
    …it’s often not hate at all.

    The Granger and Drake families have been through everything together; the suicide of the eldest Granger son, the Drake patriarch’s cancer diagnosis, family holidays with only slight maiming, and more dance recitals than anyone would care to remember.
    Leilani Granger can’t stand the person Casper Drake has become, and Casper doesn’t even recognise ... more

  • [Bad Boy's Guide to...] Being Not Good

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    If you don’t like a smattering of serious on a bed of satire, clichéd characters, and over the top situations that know exactly what they are, then this book is definitely not for you.

    What do you get when you introduce Deadpool’s personality to Giselle’s? If you answered a love story for the ages, you wouldn’t be totally wrong… But, you wouldn’t be totally right, either.

    With a heroine who won’t let a stupid lit... more

  • Hawk & the Lady

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    I didn’t belong in their world, but I made a good show of pretending I did. Mother and Father expected it. All I wanted to do was get a cosy cottage in the suburbs and live with my million cats. What I got instead was suitor after suitor paraded in front of me and the threat of a looming engagement. So, what else was a girl to do?

    After bumping into Mrs Fortescue’s ‘companion’ one too many times, I decided he’d do. Mother and... more

  • Carter

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    For the last seven years, I’d managed Horner’s Gym. It made a nice reprieve from the significant lack of romance in my life. I wasn’t the settling down sort of guy. Even for the gorgeous spitfire who’d plagued my days for years; it was more fun riling her up.
    Until one night and one mistake show me that maybe a guy can have it all. Of course, we’d need to find a middle ground between arguing and sex.
    There’s a fine lin... more

  • Luther

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    I hadn’t seen her in fifteen years. She’d moved away and we’d gone our separate ways. I’d never forgotten her, but she’d faded into a distant memory. I’d never thought of reaching out, but I had to tell her our son had arrived on my doorstep, even if he begged me not to.
    I know Ashton doesn’t mean we have to be together, but as soon as I see her the old spark is reignited even stronger than before.
    This time I wo... more

  • O Lord & the Queen

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    I was used to being the smartest person in a room, the nerd queen my boss looked to when things went wrong. And boy, did they go wrong. Super wrong. Enter Nico Daniels. Ex-military. Tall, built, smoking hot. He wears suits like they were poured onto his body. He has a mouth that would make Satan blush. And I thought my Nan was bossy? Nico makes her look tame.

    Girls like me want a guy as nerdy as them. Girls like me need a nerd on the streets and a beast... more

  • the Art of Breaking Up

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    Wade Phillips shattered Lisa McGinty’s heart in Year 10 for no known reason. One minute he was the perfect boy-next-door boyfriend, star goalie on the soccer team, and future head prefect. The next he was like a different person altogether, dumping Lisa and systematically making his way through every girl in our year.

    By Year 12, he’d made it through most of them and was on to the year below. He’d miraculously made Head Prefect and was somehow still on the Soccer team,... more

  • Accidentally Perfect

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    Sometimes, you say everything when you say nothing at all.

    Everyone's convinced the hottest guy in school's going to ask me out - that Mason and I would be the perfect couple, that he's my John Cusack. Except, he hasn't.

    One holidays, I find myself hanging out with the resident underachiever, and he surprises me. With Roman, I don't have to pretend that little Piper Barlow is perfect; even if we're both in a foul mood, just sitting in silen... more

  • Keeping Up Appearances

    by Elizabeth Stevens

    Three's a crowd, but four's a war.

    Big girl undies? Check.
    Speech planned? Check.
    Nerves of steel? Check.
    A single crush? …not check…?

    What do you do when you find your best friend/crush kissing your other best friend on the day you were going to declare your feelings for him?

    You only agree to fake date your crush’s rival. The King of the Bows, popular golden (play)boy, and all around douche, Xander wouldn&rsq... more
