Publication date: Fall 2015 
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult 

Synopsis ~

One year. That’s how long it’s been since childhood sweethearts Sully  Graham and Cadence Gilbertson broke up, since one adoption and one  out-of-state move turned their worlds upside down. 
Suddenly, Cadence is back in New York City, but something’s different  about her. The light in her eyes, the music in her laughter, the warmth  in her smile—all of those things have entirely vanished. In their place  stand the makings of a girl Sully can’t even begin to recognize, much  less understand. 
Still, despite the collective history of heartbreak between them,  he’s convinced he can win her trust again, and he’s committed to proving  the invincibility of their love no matter what it takes. 
But Cadence is quietly harboring secrets of her own. Dark secrets.  Ugly secrets. Secrets that could break a person. And though broken  herself and unbearably lonely, she’s determined to protect Sully from  her terrible, biting truths. Even if it means locking him out of her  life forever. 
The only problem is it seems her heart hasn’t quite received the  memo. One glimpse of him is all it takes for her to trip into familiar  (and, she’ll admit, addictive) feelings that threaten to all but consume  her. Now her biggest fear is that her secrets will begin to slowly  unravel one by one…long before Sully’s resolve ever does. 
The Secrets We Kept is a moving story about first love,  friendship, and forgiveness, and the enduring bonds that forever connect  us and give us our strength. 

About The Author ~

Lily Velez has been writing stories since she was six years old. Not much has changed since then. She still prefers the written word and her overactive imagination over the ‘real world’ (though to be fair, her stories no longer feature talking dinosaurs). A graduate of Rollins College and a Florida native, when she's not reading or writing, she spends most of her days wrangling up her pitbulls Noah and Luna, planning exciting travel adventures, and nursing her addiction to cheese. All this when she isn’t participating in the extreme sport known as napping. You can learn more about Lily and her books at  www.lilyvelezbooks.com.  

Lily's debut novel, The Secrets We Kept, comes out Fall 2015.
