Kiss of the Betrayer (Bringer and the Bane #2) By Boone Brux

For
fifteen years Luc Le Daun has blamed himself for the death of the woman he
loved. His secret guilt has led him into a life of danger, risking all and
committing to none.
Killing Luc Le Daun has been all Jade Kendell has thought about for years. But
when her plan goes awry and she’s brought into the Bringers’ fold, her own dark
secret threatens to be revealed. Desire for a better life wars with a promise
made long before she understood the ramifications.


In a deadly mission, Jade and Luc embark on a journey into the Shadow World. As
they attempt the impossible, ignoring the attraction growing between them
becomes harder to deny. The slightest misstep could mean the loss of their
souls and give the Demon King exactly what he needs to open the Abyss of Souls
and annihilate the Bringers.

In a land where magic has been forgotten but
peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest is simmering. Three kingdoms
grapple for power–brutally transforming their subjects’ lives in the process.
Amidst betrayals, bargains, and battles, four young people find their fates
forever intertwined:

Cleo: A princess raised in luxury must embark on a rough and treacherous
journey into enemy territory in search of a magic long thought extinct.

Jonas: Enraged at injustice, a rebel lashes out against the forces of
oppression that have kept his country impoverished–and finds himself the
leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.

Lucia: A girl adopted at birth into a royal family discovers the truth about
her past–and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield.

Magnus: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, a firstborn son begins to
realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword…

The only outcome that’s certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge
triumphant when all they know has collapsed?

Falling Kingdoms will gut you emotionally. It will make you ache,
cry, and beg for the sequel as you turn the last page. I absolutely loved
it.”–Julie Kagawa, New York Times bestselling author of The
Iron Queen

“This triple-layered tale of bloodshed, heartbreak, and tangled court
intrigue kept me turning pages very late into the night.”–Lesley
Livingston, award-winning author of Wondrous Strange

For
twelve years, he believed she died in an accident. Then, he was told she’d been
murdered. Now, FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast discovers that his beloved
wife Helen
is alive
. But their reunion is cut short when Helen is brazenly
abducted before his eyes. And Pendergast is forced to embark on a furious
cross-country chase to rescue her.
But all this turns out to be mere prologue to a far larger plot: one that unleashes
a chillingly-almost supernaturally-adept serial killer on New York City. And
Helen has one more surprise in store for Pendergast: a piece of their shared
past that makes him the one man most suited to hunting down the killer.
His pursuit of the murderer will take Pendergast deep into the trackless
forests of South America, to a hidden place where the evil that has blighted
both his and Helen’s lives lies in wait . . . a place where he will learn all
too well the truth of the ancient proverb:
Before you
embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.

Fix You (Second
Chances, #1)
By Mari Carr

After too many years of secretly loving her
best friend, Zoey realizes she’s been shortchanging herself. It’s time to take
action. This New Year’s Eve heralds the year she’s going to tell Rob the truth.
Even if he is on the road, reaching for musical stardom with his band.

Her plan is derailed when she discovers a
lump in her breast—and it’s not “nothing to worry about”. How can she
ask Rob to take a chance on love when her future is so uncertain?

Rob has spent his entire life chasing his
dream, but the moment he hears Zoey’s voice on the phone, he realizes he’s been
running the wrong race. Zoey never sounds like she’s been crying. Ever. Without
a second thought, he books a flight for home, determined to give her everything
she needs. A shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold…and nights of intensely
emotional, passionate sex.

His biggest challenge, though, is convincing
his best friend that he’s in it for the long haul. Because he finally knows
what he wants, and it’s not fame and fortune. It’s her—and her love.

Warning: This book runs the emotional gamut
between scorching-hot passion and the pain and fear associated with cancer.

 Not Exactly a Love Story by Audrey Couloumbis

It’s
1977.

Fifteen-year old Vinnie isn’t having a good year. He’s recovering from the
worst case of galloping acne his dermatologist’s ever seen. His girl moved to
California without even saying good-bye. And the ink on his parents divorce
papers is barely dry, when his mom announces that they’re moving from Queens to
Long Island.

The silver lining in all this is that they move next door to Patsy—everyone’s
dream girl. Not that she’d ever notice him. But when Vinnie calls Patsy one
night, it leads to a chain of anonymous midnight conversations. Under the cover
of darkness, Vinnie becomes Vincenzo, Patsy’s mystery caller, and the two share
a side of themselves they would never reveal in daylight and develop a
surprisingly real connection (despite the lies it’s built on). As Vinnie gets
to know Patsy in real life though, it becomes clear both identifies can’t
survive and he’ll have to find a way to hangup the phone and step into the
daylight. Fraught with complications and crackling with witty dialogue, and all
the angst and electricity that comes with always being just a phone wire away
from the one you want, acclaimed author Audrey Couloumbis’s YA debut is a
smooth-talking Cyrano meets Saturday Night Fever and tells a
quirky, flirty, and smart story that will appeal to fans of Stephen Chbosky’s The
Perks of Being a Wallflower,
Frank Portman’s King Dork, Natalie
Standiford’s How to Say Goodbye in Robot, and John Green’s An Abundance of
Katherines
. It’s not exactly a love story . . . but it’s pretty close.

 Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo

Love is
awkward, Amelia should know.

From the moment she sets eyes on Chris, she is a goner. Lost. Sunk. Head over
heels infatuated with him. It’s problematic, since Chris, 21, is a
sophisticated university student, while Amelia, 15, is 15.

Amelia isn’t stupid. She knows it’s not gonna happen. So she plays it cool
around Chris—at least, as cool as she can. Working checkout together at the
local supermarket, they strike up a friendship: swapping life stories,
bantering about everything from classic books to B movies, and cataloging the
many injustices of growing up. As time goes on, Amelia’s crush doesn’t seem so
one-sided anymore. But if Chris likes her back, what then? Can two people in
such different places in life really be together?

Through a year of befuddling firsts—first love, first job, first party, and
first hangover—debut author Laura Buzo shows how the things that break your
heart can still crack you up.

Princess of the Silver Woods By Jessica Day George

When
Petunia, the youngest of King Gregor’s twelve dancing daughters, is invited to
visit an elderly friend in the neighboring country of Westfalin, she welcomes
the change of scenery. But in order to reach Westfalin, Petunia must pass
through a forest where strange two-legged wolves are rumored to exist. Wolves
intent on redistributing the wealth of the noble citizens who have entered
their territory. But the bandit-wolves prove more rakishly handsome than truly
dangerous, and it’s not until Petunia reaches her destination that she realizes
the kindly grandmother she has been summoned to visit is really an enemy bent
on restoring an age-old curse.

The stories of Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood get a
twist as Petunia and her many sisters take on bandits, grannies, and the new
King Under Stone to end their family curse once and for all.

faces the final battle for humanity and Beck’s heart—and Hell is the least of
her problems

fend off Armageddon, everything’s changed. Well . . . most things. After their
passionate kiss before the big battle in the cemetery, Beck is back to treating
her like a little girl, as if nothing ever happened. While she’d love to just
tell him off and move on, Riley vowed to take care of Beck the way he’s taken care
of her since her father’s death—but she’s about to get a whole lot more than
she bargained for. When she’s commissioned to go with Beck to his hometown and
help him care for his dying mother, they stumble too close to a dark and
murderous secret, one that Beck fears will drive Riley away from him forever.
As chaos breaks loose, Riley may be Beck’s only hope for redemption . . . and
survival.

Meanwhile, up in Atlanta, it’s quickly becoming clear that Heaven may have won
a battle, but the war is far from over. Riley and Beck face a stormy future, as
Lucifer’s ex-right-hand-man, Sartael, proves himself to be more resilient than
anyone thought. He has Atlanta in his grip and is about to begin a brutal war
with the prince of Hell. As the seconds tick down toward a final confrontation,
it’s up to Riley and the man she loves to finally defeat their old enemy, or
lose everything they’ve fought for.

All the Broken Pieces By Cindi Madsen

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?
