Camie and Tristan are back and so are their friends! Dive deeper into the lives of the GYP gang with The Other Fish in the Sea, the second installment in the Grab Your Pole Series by Jenn Cooksey. Due to language and some adult content, this book may not be suitable for readers under the age of 16.
Excerpt: “Come on dude, just talk Camie into pitchin’ something you can knock outta the ball park, I’m sure you’ve done it before…” the big-mouth-jerk-Brandon said. Seriously, I was all for giving him a break for not having any tact, but now? Yeah, not so much.
“Mm-mm. Can’t.” Totally can if he really wanted to, so he should’ve said won’t.
“Why not?” Because he’s not an asshole!
Tristan studied Brandon for quick moment while he took a drink and then said, “Few reasons…one, I don’t get off on coercing chicks, that’s fucked up. Two, my batting average makes her nervous so she’s agreed to walk me instead of saying I hit a foul and me having to pick up the bat again…and don’t get me wrong, I’m more than goddamned grateful for getting that because I also made a fuckin’ error, so I’m just lucky to still be in the goddamned game at all. And three, stealing is a contract violation, the consequences of which would be that she’d trade me faster than you can say Bob’s her uncle and I really like being on this team.”
Aww…that’s so sweet. Isn’t that just so sweet? He deserves some leeway for that.
Previously homeschooled Camie Ramsey is being shoved into the shark-infested waters of public high school, where even helium filled, penguin bespeckled arm floaties likely won’t help keep her inexperienced, fifteen-year old head above water in that rip current of hormones and emotions. Camie’s worldly wisdom might be severely lacking (i.e., the closest she’s come to being kissed was sitting too close to the TV whilst Jake Ryan leaned in to give Samantha that fateful 16th birthday kiss), but she does understand her only hope for survival is if she’s thrown some kind of “social” life preserver before she sinks like a freaking rock. However, what will her fate be when she endeavors to flag down the only lifeguard on duty, the enormously popular and ridiculously beautiful Tristan Daniels? The most sought after and virtually most unattainable guy in school who not only makes Camie’s heart flatline on a recurring basis, he’s also the one guy who seemingly doesn’t know she exists. Feeling like an inept piece of chum that could ultimately be swallowed by Jaws, can Camie get Tristan to rescue her from floundering in the treacherous deep, or is she destined to be Shark Bait?

She currently resides in the 7th Ring of Hell (aka; Arizona) with her husband (whom she married on a dare while in Las Vegas), their three daughters, and more pets than she has the patience to count. Aside from her husband and one cat, everyone living under the Cooksey's roof is female. She's sure her husband will be not only be awarded sainthood when he kicks the bucket, but that Jesus will welcome him into heaven with a beer and a congratulatory high-five. She also believes that Bacon should be capitalized. Always.
