Lonely For You Only

Lonely For You Only


The million-copy bestselling author and BookTok sensation Monica Murphy is back with a swoon-worthy Lancaster Prep spin-off romance . . .


Young heiress Scarlett Lancaster is turning eighteen and her dad has promised to hire a famous musician for her party . . .

Delight turns to disappointment when it’s revealed that her dad hired Tate Ramsey, former lead singer of a band that hasn’t been popular for years.

Tate, after years of alcohol- and drug-fueled partying, is sober and ready for a comeback and blows the audience away with his performance—though Scarlett herself still isn’t impressed.

But when they talk after he leaves the stage, their encounter ends in a kiss that surprises them both—and immediately goes viral.

The kiss propels them into the spotlight. Riding the wave of stardom, the two agree to start a fake relationship.

But before long they discover their feelings might not be fake after all . . .
