Stuck with You by Christina Mandelski
Publication Date: September 2, 2019
Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush

When Caleb Gray heads to the Texas coast to mentally prepare for a future he isn’t sure he wants, the last person he expects to see is Catie Dixon. Yeah, their mothers have been planning their wedding since they were born, but he and Catie are most definitely not friends. He can’t see her as anything but the annoying kid who followed him everywhere. Except, it’s really bothering him that everyone is staring at her in that bikini…

Catie got over her crush on Caleb ages ago. So why can’t she see past his ripped body or how unsettled he seems? She’s got her own problems, though. Her future has been set for years and now she’s dreaming of pulling the plug. A week at their families’ beach house is just what she needs to pull herself together, and she has no intention of letting Caleb back into her heart...which would be a whole lot easier if he’d put on a shirt.

But a forced week of togetherness full of beach parties, waterslide mishaps, bonfires, and roller coasters sparks more than an understanding. What do you do when the person standing in the way of your future is the one person you grew up hating...but now don’t?

The world of … (World Building)

Hi there, thanks so much for having me on the blog to celebrate my latest book from Entangled!
In my new book, Stuck With You, we leave the fictional town of Edinburgh, Florida (where the first two books of the three books I’ve written for Entangled were set) and head across the Gulf of Mexico to the real location of Crystal Beach, Texas with main character Caleb Gray.
This was an easy and fun world to build for me, since I live about an hour from Crystal Beach in suburban Houston. I was also excited to set this in a beach community, since hanging out on the beach for a week or two is my idea of the perfect vacation. Until I started to write the book, though, I had not spent much time in Crystal Beach, so I had to do a little reconnaissance trip. (I know, darn, right?) My husband and I stayed in an adorable rental and spent quality time exploring the kitsch-ier parts of the area, like Fun Spot waterslide, Swede’s convenience store and The Big Store (actual name and totally fitting!)
One of the most impressive things about this area of Texas is that much of the Crystal Beach community was wiped away during Hurricane Ike in 2008. Some houses were just completely, totally gone. You wouldn’t know it today, just eleven years later. Entire neighborhoods have been rebuilt and fortified to new building code specs, which will hopefully allow them to withstand the next storm.
I loved setting the story basically in my own Texas backyard. I hope you enjoy reading it and enjoy spending a romantic and wild week at the beach with main characters Caleb and Catie.
Thanks again!
