Next of Kin

When people pleasing Chloe learns that her birth mother has unexpectedly had another baby, she doesn’t hesitate to become a next-of-kin guardian. But, when she fails to pass Child Protective Services’ financial evaluation, she is faced with a choice: see her baby sister placed in foster care, or participate in CPS’ new initiative, TeamUp.

Enter Warren, a surly mechanic’s apprentice attempting to get custody of his deaf fifteen year old brother after failing CPS’ housing evaluation. The two stranger’s immediately clash but agree to live together until Warren can find housing elsewhere and Chloe can further grow her freelance career.

As their lives further intertwine, Chloe and Warren both realise that they’re far more similar than they could have imagined. What started as forced, begins to feel natural, and far less lonely. Chemistry soon intensifies beyond what either of them can stand, but they must each decide if what burns between them is worth risking their arrangement.

Next to You

Lane is in the middle of an identity crisis. Her friends are all partnered up, her career is leading nowhere, and simply put? She's not happy. So after a night out celebrating (drinking) on her birthday she makes one hell of an impulsive purchase. A giant, yellow, forty-eight passenger school bus that she intends to make a home.

With little-to-no renovation experience but a large sum of inheritance money, Lane enlists the help of her friend Matt—a mechanic by trade, handyman by practice, and hottie by nature.

While their mutual attraction is undeniable, Matt and Lane have silently agreed that a friendship is the only thing that could ever exist between them. Matt's a total family guy with "settle down with me" tattooed across his forehead whereas Lane is entirely commitment-averse.

So, when Matt offers to help her with the bus and in the bedroom with no strings attached, Lane’s feelings evolve faster than you can say “just good friends.” But she soon discovers that in order to build something new, she has to first heal her past.
