Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don’t kill him first, that is…
“Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys.” -Obsidian, Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Then, there was Daemon. I’m not one to typically fall for an alien, but Daemon is the exception. Even with his arrogance and sharp tongue (which Katy easily matched), no words could describe my love for him.”- Kelsey Ketch (Author, Daughter of Isis)
What if your life wasn’t your own?
Liv comes out of a coma with no memory of her past and two distinct, warring voices inside her head. Nothing, not even her reflection, seems familiar. As she stumbles through her junior year, the voices get louder, insisting she please the popular group while simultaneously despising them. But when Liv starts hanging around with Spencer, whose own mysterious past also has him on the fringe, life feels complete for the first time in, well, as long as she can remember.
Liv knows the details of the car accident that put her in the coma, but as the voices invade her dreams, and her dreams start feeling like memories, she and Spencer seek out answers. Yet the deeper they dig, the less things make sense. Can Liv rebuild the pieces of her broken past, when it means questioning not just who she is, but what she is?
“Spencer’s eagerness at helping Liv gain new, happy memories made me fall in love with him. Their relationship, full of witty jabs and smart remarks, is my favorite type to read about. I loved them as friends and I loved them as a team.”- Andrea (The Bookish Babe)
“And let me just say, I loved Spencer!! The perfect boy for Liv.”- Tara Fuller (Author, Inbetween, Blurred )
On the precipice of her sixteenth birthday, the last thing lone wolf Cat Crawford wants is an extravagant gala thrown by her bubbly stepmother and well-meaning father. So even though Cat knows the family’s trip to Florence, Italy, is a peace offering, she embraces the magical city and all it offers. But when her curiosity leads her to an unusual gypsy tent, she exits . . . right into Renaissance Firenze.
Thrust into the sixteenth century armed with only a backpack full of contraband future items, Cat joins up with her ancestors, the sweet Alessandra and protective Cipriano, and soon falls for the gorgeous aspiring artist Lorenzo. But when the much-older Niccolo starts sniffing around, Cat realizes that an unwanted birthday party is nothing compared to an unwanted suitor full of creeptastic amore. Can she find her way back to modern times before her Italian adventure turns into an Italian forever?
“Lorenzo, oh Lorenzo…he is quite simply swoon worthy. Charming is probably the best way I could describe him. A painter with delicious golden hair and sweet but cocky smile – who would say no to that! But like any good hero he also has a sweet & caring side reserved for Cat.”- Amy (The Reading Realm)
“And Lorenzo. Lorenzo! What can I say, Italian, artistic, handsome and cheeky. I approve!”- Trish (Between My Lines)
Seventeen-year-old Dylan Kennedy always knew something was different about him, but until his mother abandoned him in the middle of Oregon with grandparents he’s never met, he had no idea what.
When Dylan sees a girl in white in the woods behind his grandparents’ farm, he knows he’s seen her before… in his dreams. He’s felt her fear. Heard her insistence that only he can save her world from an evil lord who uses magic and fear to feed his greed for power.
Unable to shake the unearthly pull to Kera, Dylan takes her hand. Either he’s completely insane or he’s about to have the adventure of his life, because where they’re going is full of creatures he’s only read about in horror stories. Worse, the human blood in his veins has Dylan marked for death…
“What I loved about this story was being inside Dylan’s head. It’s different and unique to live a story from the guy’s point of view, and Dylan Kennedy is an amazing character. What he grew up dealing with, a mother that cared little for him, made him into a tough guy, but vulnerable, too. He truly didn’t see how anyone could care or love him. His only outlet, his fantasy world he lived through his dreams . . . His dream girl.”- Trisha Wolfe (Author, Fireblood)
“As for the characters, Dylan was so great. Even though he didn’t have the best life growing up, he managed to become a person who is caring, determined, and passionate. I loved that the book was from his point-of-view because I enjoy reading from the male POV, and I think the author did a wonderful job on making his voice believable.”- Alexa (Collections)
My name is Maggie Raynard. After sixteen years being just plain me, suddenly, when I lose my temper, my fingers become weapons of mass destruction. Turns out I’m a semi-god, descended from Aphrodite. Sounds cool in theory, but when I accidentally put my ex-boyfriend in a coma, things go downhill pretty fast.
Now some new guy named Mac Finnegan has made it his mission in life to continually piss me off. I’m stuck learning how to use my new powers while also dealing with regular high school problems, and with this annoying—and super-hot—guy all up in my business, I’m about to flip out.
But it gets worse. I just learned there’s this watchdog council of semis who keeps an eye out for any bad apples. They think I’m the baddest of the bunch and want to take me out before I do any more damage. My nemesis Mac might turn out to be my salvation, only he’s got secrets of his own…and they may just kill us both.
Opinionated, annoying, hot – did I mention annoying? – Mac Finnegan, who had barely given me the time of day since he’d come to Crestwood High. Mac Finnegan, who thought he was soooo cool with his Irish accent and his mocking smile. Mac Finnegan, who inexplicably made me want to lick him like an ice cream cone and then immediately rinse my mouth out with acid.”- Maggie, Chaos
“Mac is surly, ornery and downright rotten at times but his softer side shows through just enough that he too becomes pretty loveable and irresistible. The mystery behind just exactly who and what he is, didn’t hurt either. And together, these two were pretty explosive.”- MlpMom (My Guilty Obsession)
He tilts my chin up so my eyes meet his, his thumb brushing lightly across my lips. I close my eyes. I know Z is trouble. I know that being with him is going to get me into trouble. I don’t care.
At least at this moment, I don’t care.
Tossed from foster home to foster home, Olivia’s seen a lot in her sixteen years. She’s hardened, sure, though mostly just wants to fly under the radar until graduation. But her natural ability with computers catches the eye of Z, a mysterious guy at her new school. Soon, Z has brought Liv into his team of hacker elite—break into a few bank accounts, and voila, he drives a motorcycle. Follow his lead, and Olivia might even be able to escape from her oppressive foster parents. As Olivia and Z grow closer, though, so does the watchful eye of Bill Sykes, Z’s boss. And he’s got bigger plans for Liv…
I can picture Liv’s face: wide-eyed, trusting. Her smooth lips that taste like strawberry Fanta.
It was just a kiss. That’s all. She’s just like any other girl.
Except that she’s not.
Thanks to Z, Olivia’s about to get twisted.
“After cracking through his shell and finding out more about Z he won me over. He ended up being there for Olivia when no one else was and being completely selfless with her in the end.”- Crystal (Crystal in Bookland)
“And Z is intriguing as well as HOT. I LOVED the chemistry between them.”- Larissa, GR Reviewer
Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course…
When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.
Seven deadly ones, in fact.
They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they’re recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing…
There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.
“Lukas was an interesting character. Chained to the sin of wrath by a vengeful witch back in the 1800′s, he’s a fish out of water when it comes to modernity which led to some hilarious moments of interaction with Jessie. He was sweet and respectful with an edge and I liked his connection not just with Jessie but the secondary characters in particular Jessie’s mom.”- Danielle (What Danielle Did Next)
“Sweet, caring and goofy at times, Lukas has to be one of the nicest YA love interest I’ve come across. As much as I love my bad-boys in my YA novels, I seem to have a greater attraction to the nice ones.”- Nick (Nick’s Book Blog)
Sixteen year old Alexis Munroe has only ever wanted to be accepted, to be popular even. The only problem is she can’t quite manage whatever that thing is that makes people popular. She’s nice, she’s smart, and she’s somewhat pretty. She even has two really great friends—Winston and Mercedes—but that’s not enough to make her popular. Or catch the eye of Collin Harper, the school’s hottest guy.
So, when the chance to get close to him by letting him work with her and her friends on an English Literature project comes up she jumps at it. This would have been fine, if they hadn’t ended up with a magical book that pulled them into a different realm.
Now, struggling with her desires and the fate of two worlds, Alexis must choose between what is right and what is easy.
“Also Winston is such a great guy. I really like him. I thought him and Allie had one of the best friendships, relationships of the book. Everything about them was so perfect. Loved how Allie and him related ina lot of ways. Not to mention how Winston came to her rescue when she needed it the most.“- Grace Fonseca (Amazon Reviewer)
