Yesenia Vargas


I write young adult fiction about teens who are figuring out what it means to make your own choices.

When I'm not writing, I enjoy reading, spending time with family, staying fit, and binge-watching Netflix. In 2013, I graduated from the University of Georgia, the first in my family to go to college.

I live in Georgia with my husband and two little girls.

Better Off (Prequel to the Changing Hearts Series) Yesenia Vargas

Ariana has never had a boyfriend. After meeting Carlos at a quinceanera party, she wants one. But her parents simply won’t allow it. Ariana must convince her brother not to say anything when she starts seeing Carlos behind their parents’ back. Ariana never would have guessed that having a boyfriend would come at such a huge price, though. Because Carlos is still hurting from his past. She doesn’t know how long she can keep up the lie to her parents. And she never realized how much her heart might have to pay if this relationship isn’t something Carlos is ready for. When Carlos starts showing her just how damaged he is, Ariana isn’t sure she’s ready for this either. Better Off is a full-length YA romance with a not-so-conventional HEA. It's a prequel in the Changing Hearts series.
