Synopsis: Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She didn’t spend her childhood silent about her imaginary friend, and is thus a bit of an outsider in the sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, she has a best friend, runs the popular school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.

But all that changes when the Lynburns return. . . .

Format: Paperback

My Rating: 5/5

SynopsisConnor, Risa, and Lev are running for their lives.
The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child “unwound,” whereby all of the child’s organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn’t technically end. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state is not enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape and to survive.

Synopsis: Reaper Colson has run the Blue Bird Strip Club for the Blue Bandits MC for ten years. He’s seen all types of people in and out of his club, but when Sarah Banner walks in he can’t seem to find either his balls or his manners. Because she’s tying him up in knots and pissing him off to the point when he’d usually say screw it and walk away. Only she’s under his skin and walking away might not be an option for him anymore.

Sarah Banner is desperate. She and her son are going to be living in her car if she doesn’t find work. Walking into the Blue Bird was the hardest thing she’d ever done, but for her son Josh she’d do anything. Only the owner wasn’t what she expected and giving up cardigans for leather skirts is going to be hard. Unleashing Reaper is going to be even harder.
