When I first got the email with cover directions for Surviving Adam Meade, I was sitting in my husband’s recliner with The Real Housewives of Orange County playing on the DVR. One beep and bam! My attention was immediately on the four beautiful options in my inbox.

To recap, this is the Surviving Adam Meade summary:

“School is stressful, senior year is worse, and Adam Meade is a problem of a different caliber.

Seventeen-year-old Claire Collins has a plan: get into college and leave North Carolina behind. What she doesn’t have is an idea for how to get rid of the local football star and womanizer extraordinaire—Adam Meade, who she can’t even avoid, because Claire’s dad is the high school football coach.

Seventeen-year-old Adam never fails. He always gets what he wanted and has never heard the word no… until Claire, the new girl who leaves him unnerved, pissed off, and confused. But there’s something about her that he just can’t resist…

With tensions high and a football career hanging in the balance, choices are made, secrets revealed, and hearts broken, in this sexy and compelling young adult novel.”

I spent the first few hours staring at the covers, then spent even longer wondering which cover the readers would choose.  Last week, you decided the winner.

I’m so excited!!!  Lesley W. did a fantastic job capturing the essence of Claire and Adam. Adam’s truck is essential to the story, and this couple is perfect for Claire and Adam. Plus, the background is exactly how I picture the Pader countryside. I absolutely love that red-hued sky.

Massive thanks to everyone who voted!  You are amazing.
