About A KISS TO WAKE ME
"A high school romance full of love—and turbulence." —Kirkus Reviews
A Kiss to Wake Me is a modern-day love story between Jamie and Cara. When the two first lock eyes in the high school cafeteria, “love at first sight” is no longer just a cliché to either of them.
Their romance takes off at record speed but just as quickly crashes into a wall of disbelief when a figurative bomb is dropped into their lives, upending the world as they knew it: Cara is pregnant, even though she believed she was a virgin.
When these unforeseen circumstances threaten the couple’s future together, everything comes into question. Is Jamie the father of her baby? Will he still love her and the baby if he’s not? How did Cara even get pregnant? How could she possibly cope without him and his family, whom she has grown to love and depend on?
Will Jamie and Cara’s love endure the hardships thrust so harshly upon them? Fans of romantic first love and those who desire to see first love withstand seemingly insurmountable obstacles will enjoy this sweet yet intense novel.

Praise & Reviews
"A high school romance full of love—and turbulence. The novel highlights different family dynamics that readers may resonate with... [a] story of trust, love, and family." —Kirkus Reviews
"I really enjoyed this book. The story was emotionally engaging. In fact, I was so into it, I kept having to go back and add comments since I was that much into finding out what happened next. I really liked Cara and Jamie. How they acted through what can only be considered enormous stress felt genuine and honest." —Starred Review 5/5
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Kiss to Wake Me. Cheryl did an amazing job creating characters that are likeable, relatable, and have you rooting for them the entire book. I would recommend this to anyone who loves romance and enjoys young love." —Julie Schrader, editor at Bookworm Yogi
"The first few paragraphs of this novel drew me in and would not let me go till I knew the outcome. From start to finish, it was engaging, romantic, and suspenseful. A story of young love, love at first sight, and a cautionary tale, this was indeed a great read." —Early Reader Review
