When an idealized Instagram life hits stormy weather, do you choose a picture perfect fiction, or the rough seas of true love?
Raised on a small island in North Carolina's Outer Banks, Willa has a picture-perfect life: hanging out at the beach with her friends, living in a cozy sea-side cottage, working at a sailing store, and running a hugely popular sailing Instagram. When a group of followers enters her into High Seas, a televised national sailing championship, it should be no problem. Too bad Willa doesn't actually know how to sail at all. Desperate to avoid having her carefully curated life come crashing down around her, Willa tracks down Lane Cordova, the winner of four previous High Seas competitions, and begs her for a crash course in sailing before the race begins. But Lane's competence on the water is only matched by Willa's ineptitude, and her growing crush on Lane isn't helping matters. The competition threatens to go awry and take her entire idealized life with it.


Amazon #1 Bestseller (LGBT Fiction): Broken Records Finalist, 2018 Lambda Literary Awards | Bisexual Fiction (Jilted) Finalist, 2018 Foreword INDIES Book of the Year | Romance (Jilted) Winner, Bisexual Book Award: Romance (Jilted) "Hollywood style meets Nashville charm in this sweet, sexy fling turned romance." —Publishers Weekly on Broken Records "Top Pick! This excellent take on the celebrity-and-normal-person romance moves at a fast clip while satisfying at every turn." —RT Book Reviews on Broken Records "A witty, touching, nuanced—and very sexy—romance."—Kirkus Reviews on Blended Notes

"Suzanne deftly examines the pressures that accompany the curation of a perfect self, and the payoff of opening up yourself to vulnerability, compassion, growth, and love." —Jude Sierra, author of Idlewild and A Tiny Piece of Something Greater

"Sometimes you really can judge a book by its cover. Tack & Jibe is proof of that. Lilah Suzanne delivered just what I expected from the gorgeous pastel cover with paper sailing boats. This is a sweet story of two women learning who they are and finding love along the way. There are plenty of waves in the ocean to keep you turning pages and oodles of seaside charm. This is one of my favorites of the year so far." —Caitlin Ryan, The Lesbian Review
