First and foremost, I'm a mom. I monitor what my kids watch on TV, what games they play, and what books they read. That's not to say some things haven't slipped past me before, but I try to be on high alert. For this reason, I have created this page for my young adult readers. All of my books are written under one name ~ T.K. Rapp ~ and I feel that can cause some confusion down the road. Therefore, if a book is on this page, it is suitable for young readers. Still, I encourage you to read for yourself because what one person deems acceptable, is not to another. Thanks for being awesome!
Recently graduated from high school, Holland Monroe had no expectations for her last summer before heading off to college to be anything but ordinary.
Until she got a job as a waitress at the local country club to make extra money for school.
Milo Davis was smart, cute, and absolutely not interested in Holland. At least that was what she believed. But the day she started working at the restaurant, everything changed.
Finally together, they were left with only three months to spend time together before she moved away.
Good thing they decided to make their time as memorable as possible.
But will they remain friends? Or will checking off items on their summer bucket list lead them to something they didn’t expect --- Falling in love.
Everyone has their role to play.
Laila is the glue.
Haden is the artist.
Braxton is the grownup.
Joey is the brains.
And Cole Cameron…well, he’s the wildcard.
So when he decides to move from South Carolina to New York City, no one is entirely surprised. The adjustment isn’t as easy as he expected, but when he meets Mackenzie everything starts falling into place.
Until one fateful night everything changes.
As Cole wrestles with the past and navigates the present, he has to come to terms with his role in the one night he can’t forget.
The truth always comes out, and when it does, things may never be the same again.

Brighton is changing and exciting doors are opening. A new world of music, friends, and even love are falling at her feet. But it's hard to enjoy it when Leah's life is spiraling out of control.

Joey, Cole, Haden and Braxton have been a constant in my life since
I was five, and I have loved being one of the guys.
I’ve been cheerleader.
I’ve been study partner.
I’ve been listener.
When we’re young, we don’t realize the profound impact certain people will have on our lives. I had no idea twelve years ago I’d meet four boys who would turn out to be my best friends, my soul mates - my barmy.
Now school is almost done, our last summer together is drawing closer, and I’m trying to hold on to what we have while I still can. After this we’ll have to say goodbye to each other, as our choices will take our lives in different directions. But I don't know if our friendship can survive once secrets and surprises begin revealing themselves to us at every turn.
When it’s all said and done, will our friendships remain unbreakable? Or will our once strong bond prove to be weaker than we anticipated?
Letting go is harder than I thought, but some changes are necessary.
And finding Laila...finding myself…may be the greatest journey of all.

A good love story always begins the same way.
A chance meeting.
A sizzling look.
A flat tire…
Dani Miner could have been voted least likely to be a damsel in distress.
Tabor Hunter should have been voted most likely to do the rescuing.
So when Dani gets a flat tire on her way home one evening, she is, at first, less than thrilled to be helped out by a man that is clearly too charming for his own good. Even if he is handsome. And buff. And the king of the thousand watt smile.
However, prickly Dani is eventually charmed by her hottie knight in shining sunglasses. And a brief moment spent on the side of the road on a hot summer evening quickly leads to a first date.
But what Dani doesn’t realize is that she has just agreed to go out with the very famous defensive end for the San Diego Quakes. And Tabor is thrilled to finally meet a woman who doesn’t fall at his overly athletic feet. This year's most valuable player is excited to have a chance to be an ordinary guy with a less than ordinary woman.
But being a celebrity can put a real kink in your love life and Dani, a woman used to a much quieter life, is soon caught up in the high paced world of fame and football.
Falling in love is easy. Falling in love with a sports star is another story.
Can Dani figure out how to play the game before she fumbles her chance at happiness?
