If you haven’t quite gotten through the other books in the series, you can start with this one without worrying about the story making sense. In this book, Alec Andreas, disgraced pop star, is desperate to save his career. Desperate enough to join a bunch of has-been celebrities on a desert where they’re about to participate in challenges, vote each other off–and maybe fall in love.
We’re huge Survivor fans, so we had a lot of fun planning and writing this book, and we’re so happy to finally get to share it with you!

To celebrate, we’re running a contest for bonus content for The Girlfriend Stage. We have scenes written, both from Josh’s point of view. One is the first chapter, and the other is the scene under the stars from midway through the book. Both reveal what Josh was thinking in those moments, and he’s in a very different headspace than Anna-Marie.
We want to share these scenes with you, so we’re setting up two contests. We will release the first bonus content scene (Josh POV of chapter one) when we reach 100 reviews on The Extra, And we’re almost there! If you haven’t yet, head over and leave a review. When we get to one hundred, we’ll release the Josh bonus scene for everyone. Everybody wins!
We’d like to thank everyone who downloaded our books during our Bookbub feature this week.

Thank you so much to everyone who has liked, downloaded, followed, and reviewed our books. We are so happy to have such a great community of readers, and we love sharing our stories with you.
Here’s a thing about us as co-writers–we’re not generally happy just telling one story about our couples. We play with barbies for pre-writing, giving the stories a dry run using roleplaying techniques. (Think D&D, but without the dice and the rules.)
When we finish a story, we generally take a few weeks worth of gaming sessions to do alternate stories, to answer the question, what would have happened if we change the story like this? Or like this? Most of the time these are just for fun, but occasionally we discover a pocket of emotional information about the characters that didn’t get explored in the main story, and we use this to inspire a future story with that couple, or we work that information and development into the main book.
Sometimes, though, we fall in love with an alternate story, and feel the need to write it. With Felix and Jenna, we did a lot of alternate timelines in which they met at different points in their arc. What if they met before Felix was in rehab, or when Jenna was still dating Grant? What if they met as kids and Felix was Ty’s father (at sixteen)?
Our favorite of these, though, was the one where Felix and Jenna met in high school when she was a single mom and a party girl, and he was a preppy orchestra nerd. We wrote one of those scenes, and then another, and pretty soon we knew we were going to write a whole book of that story, and if we were going to write a book, we were going to share it.
That’s how Everything We Might Have Been was born, an alternate reality version of what might have happened if Felix and Jenna met at a different time, in a different place, in a different way. And this alternate version of them gets their very own full lenght novel, and their very own HEA. (Because really, there’s no keeping these two apart. It can be read separate from the series (but it’s only available in e-book in the box set, because really, you want to read the other books too, right?) And at 9.99 for the whole set, it’s basically a steal.
We hope you love it as much as we do.
The first box set in The Extra Series is out today! It includes the first four books in the series, plus a bonus novel in which Felix and Jenna meet in high school. (Not canon, but just for fun.) The bonus novel is only available in e-book here, and is also available in print.
You can buy the collection at your favorite e-book retailer, and the print version of the bonus novel will be available soon.
