I’m loving these novellas. This is Bren and Six trying to figure out what comes next after the wall with Eden comes down and the war is over. Spoiler: It’s sexy and sweet and Bren and Six have a soft spot for children who were orphaned during the war and need a safe place.
If you haven’t read the rest of the series DO NOT START HERE, but if you’re an O’Kane addict like me you’ll definitely want to put this on your to read list.
I read this on Mandi from Smexybooks recommendation. All I have to say is it was creepy as hell and I could not put it down.
People across the world are seeing something that turns them violently crazy, either committing that violence on other people or on themselves. The narrator of the story is Malorie and right when shit starts to go down she finds out she is pregnant. What follows is a back and forth timeline of her finding a refuge of sorts with a group of strangers and several years in the future where she and two small children are trying to get to some kind of safe place blindfolded and scared out of their minds.
Supposedly this is being made into a movie and I have yet to figure out how that will happen since what makes this book so disturbing is that the characters are basically surviving in the dark, and having to rely on their other senses.
LOVED this book. Loved, loved, loved. A super sweet love story with a Beauty and the Beast vibe that hit every single one of my swoony, sexy, playfully funny romance buttons. If you enjoy historical romance you absolutely want to one-click the preorder button on this one.
Full review to come closer to release date.
This was the introduction to Molly O’Keefe’s newest series.
Here’s the blurb from GR:
LOVE AND SECOND CHANCES ARE NOT FREE
For the five kids who live at St. Jude’s Home for Court Placed Juveniles, life is a nightmare.
Carissa, the youngest, has been there the longest. And barely speaks. Rosa is sixteen and pregnant.
Simon keeps his head down and studies, hoping to get back the life he lost.
Beth and Tommy, in the middle of the darkness, have found each other, and all they want is to be together. But when they get caught making out at school, it puts everyone in danger. Tommy is used to the beatings from their foster father, but when Beth is singled out for punishment, Tommy can’t sit back and let it happen.
AND ALL DEBTS MUST BE PAID
What happens that night rips apart the lives of the five teenagers forever.
After the blood has been spilled, a bargain is made. A deal with the devil that should have solved things. It should have fixed everything.
But nothing is free – not love, not innocence, and certainly not freedom. And sooner or later, all debts must be paid…
I’ve got the first book in the series sitting on my Kindle and I’m excited.
I’m finally getting to Ms. Reid’s Knitting in the City series. I’m not sure why I haven’t found reading time to dive into these, but I think it has something to do with wanting to keep them on the back burner in case I get a case of the bad book blues and need a funny pick me up. I’ve managed to read the first three books in three days and am eyeing the last several wondering if I should just keep on or save for later. Life is hard y’all.
So far my favorite has been the second book, Friends Without Benefits, but not by much. If you’ve ever read Penny Reid than you know that she is laugh out loud funny and has the most unique and interesting heroines. Her heroes are to shabby either.
