Here are some other word pair examples.

For anyone else that's still planning, mother & father would work, too!

Shoes & socks will work.


message 26: by Jessica (new)

Jessica (sureshot26) | 771 comments Can I use Naughty in Nice for the one-book option? I'm on the fence about it because it's clear from the book's summary that the title uses "nice" in both its sense as naughty's opposite and also as the city in France.

Megan Anderson (ms_anderson) | 1481 comments His Enemy, His Friend (enemy and friend)
Boy Girl Boy (boy and girl)

I figure the last of these will probably be a long shot (since it's written as a single word in the title), but I decided it was worth asking lol
