Summary from Goodreads:

Cami Broussard has her future all figured out. She’ll finish her senior year of high school, then go to work full-time as an apprentice chef in her father’s French restaurant, alongside her boyfriend, Luke. But then twenty-year-old ex-Marine Julian Wyatt comes to live with Cami’s family while recovering from serious injuries. And suddenly Cami finds herself questioning everything she thought she wanted.
Julian’s all attitude, challenges and intense green-brown eyes. But beneath that abrasive exterior is a man who just might be as lost as Cami’s starting to feel.

Praise for Stir Me Up:

“Fun, steamy, and leaves you hungry for more. Sabrina Elkins nails the vulnerability of becoming an adult and the choices that come with growing up.” —Katie McGarry, author of Dare You To

“Cami’s slow burn for a wounded hero will rivet readers. I seriously loved this book.” —Jennifer Echols, author of Dirty Little Secret

Julian and Cami both love watching movies. Here are Cami’s all-time favorites!

West Side Story

Who knew so many hot guys could sing and dance?

Dead Poet’s Society

The story of a great English teacher – and how parents can screw up your life.

The Notebook

Most romantic movie ever. Bring plenty of tissues.

Good Will Hunting

The best and cutest math genius on the planet gets a pep talk from the grown-up Peter Pan.


A meteor is going to destroy the world, unless Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck can find a drill bit that works. Great song by the starlet’s daddy.

The Cutting Edge

“There are only two things I do really well, sweetheart. And skating’s the other one.”

“Oh, I’m so impressed.”

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Harry gets caught in a deadly tournament with Edward Cullen.

No Reservations

The hottest sous-chef ever plays opera music in the kitchen, and his executive chef boss gets so

distracted she accidentally lights her apron on fire.

Notting Hill

How to land a movie star: step 1: spill orange juice all over her. Step 2: own adorable book shop. Step 3: have floppy hair and look like Hugh Grant.
