Milwaukee, Wisconsin Past and Present Day

A palette cleanser. That's what Joss and Matt were for each other.  Every time a relationship ended, Joss or Matt would make the call to the other, and they would be each other's sorbet. It started out simple enough, someone safe to go back to during emotional turmoil. But soon, maybe he started looking at ways to end a relationship so he could tell Joss he needed her.

After seven years of being best friends, and being each other's go-to emotional palette cleanser, Joss is ready to tell Matt how she feels. At some point, Joss realized it's not just a friendship their connection is so much deeper. But when Joss goes to confess her true feelings, Matt tells her that the sorbet deal isn't working for him anymore. How is a girl supposed to get past the best friendship, and the truest love, she's ever known?

A fresh take on the friends-to-happily-ever-after theme, WHEN JOSS MET MATT is a page turning read. Moving between the present day and the history of their friendship, readers can see how the sorbet deal was struck, and how these two lovers went from randomly meeting at a party, to becoming each other's safe place.

With its present and past timeline, WHEN JOSS MET MATT is a truly original piece of fiction. One for the keeper shelves, this is definitely a one-sitting read, since readers won't be able to put it down!

WHEN JOSS MET MATT is the first New Adult book by Ellie Cahill, but this author has written several Young Adult novels under the name Liz Czukas, so be sure to check those out if you loved WHEN JOSS MET MATT!
