Release Day is Here!!

It’s funny how it seemed to take forever to get here and yet I can’t believe the day is here!

I wrote JUST A LITTLE CRUSH over a year ago and I can still remember the exact moment Brinley and Ryder’s opposites attract love story came to me. There’s this line that popped into my head: “…it took me seven minutes to fall in love with him, and only seven seconds to fall out.” and I knew that was the story I had to tell. From there I wanted to create two characters who seemed very different, but really faced similar struggles.

I love this book. I love the characters (including the secondary ones). And I love how every single one of them grows with this story…. And I hope you do too 🙂

Good girls stay away from Ryder Briggs . . . or, at least, they try to. In Renita Pizzitola’s emotional novel of heartache and seduction, one college freshman just can’t get enough. 

Brinley Dawson doesn’t drink, she studies—and despite the accusations of her alcoholic mother, she’s still a virgin. But if Brinley’s life is so put together, why is she freaking out to be going to college with the gorgeous, green-eyed jerk she kissed on a stupid dare in high school? Ryder Briggs can have any girl he wants . . . and the rumors say that he does. So why, after publicly embarrassing Brinley four years ago, is he suddenly acting like he’s interested?

Ryder never forgot Brinley. In fact, those perfect seven minutes permanently raised the bar for what a kiss could be. The truth is, Ryder doesn’t dare get too close to anyone. He knows how that worked out for his parents. But when his roommate takes a shot at Brinley, Ryder can’t contain his jealousy. Now he must do the hardest thing he’s ever done: forget about sex and convince Brinley his feelings are real.

Brinley isn’t sure whether she believes Ryder, but for the first time, her body isn’t playing by the rules. Then she discovers that she’s an unwilling part of a cruel game, humiliating her all over again—and Ryder might be to blame. Has Brinley’s little crush turned into a huge mistake . . . or has she found the one guy worth trusting with her heart?

Praise for Just a Little Crush
“Brinley and Ryder are the perfect combination of sweet and hot. They’ll have you pulling for second chances.”USA Today bestselling author Lisa Desrochers

“Be prepared to swoon hard over Ryder in Just a Little Crush, Renita Pizzitola’s impressive New Adult debut. Brinley and Ryder are drawn together in an almost hypnotic way and I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the utterly sexy, sweet, romantic, and scorching moments between them. I loved it!”—Christina Lee, author of the Between Breaths series
