A chronic yes-woman finally admits to what—and who—she really wants in this unforgettable and heartfelt romantic comedy, by the author of The Layover.

Liv Bakersfield is used to living her life in “shoulds.” Be fit. Be financially responsible. Be your best self. An overworked graphic designer, she’s stretched so thin that she’s about to miss yet another vacation with her beloved group of college friends. But when Liv finally decides to start saying no, it feels good…good enough to leap straight into quitting her job and hopping on a plane to join them in South Africa.



Amid the exotic landscape and unforgettable sights, Liv expects sun and safari animals and an easy time with her best friends. But such close proximity makes everything more complicated, especially with the emotionally unavailable Lucas Deiss. Their friendship is the only thing in her life that’s still solid, and she vows to do anything she can to keep the group together. But once they get back to LA, Liv discovers that her leap of faith has become a freefall, sending her crashing into Deiss’s arms. With the trust of the people she loves most on the line, Liv must decide between doing what she should … and risking everything for what she shouldn’t want.

Story Locale: Los Angeles and South Africa

PERFECT FOLLOW-UP TO BOOK ONE: Lacie Waldon’s debut novel, The Layover, is set up for success for this coming summer season. Reviews have called it “a breezy enemies-to-lovers romp” (Publishers Weekly) and the novel has received winning blurbs from genre favorites like Kerry Winfrey, Sarah Hogle, and Samantha Young. We expect the buzz to carry over to FROM THE JUMP.



A WINNING TPO OPPORTUNITY: Expertly blending romantic comedy and heart-filled women’s fiction, FROM THE JUMP is a perfect addition to these two markets. Readers are sure to be attracted to the eye-catching illustrated package and accessible price point.



AN ODE TO FRIENDSHIP: Aside from the delicious romance, FROM THE JUMP also has its fair share of platonic love. The college friend group at the center of the story is both intimate and relatable, and adds a fresh layer to this romantic story.



FRIENDS-TO-LOVERS: While The Layover brilliantly deployed the enemies-to-lovers trope, FROM THE JUMP makes use of the friends-to-lovers romantic arc that genre readers find irresistible.

Lacie Waldon is a writer with her head in the clouds—literally. A flight attendant based in Los Angeles, CA., Waldon spends her days writing from the jump seat and searching the world for new stories. She is also the author of The Layover.
