Kelsey has only one choice now: escape!

Kelsey Reed just wants the happy, care-free life promised by the seeming utopia of the Life First society. Only, that life comes at a cost, one she’s not willing to give: her kidney.
The dystopian future Kelsey lives in was forged by survivors of pandemics that wiped out 80 percent of the world’s population.
Here, life is valued above all else. The mentally ill are sterilized, abortions are illegal and those who refuse to donate an organ when told are sentenced to death.
Unwilling to give up her kidney, and determined not to die, Kelsey enlists the help of her true love Luke and a dodgy doctor to escape.
The trio must disable the electronic tracking chip in Kelsey’s arm for her to flee undetected. If they fail, Kelsey could be stripped of Luke, her kidney and everything else she holds dear.

 

If the world of the Handmaiden’s Tale chilled you, step into the world of Life First. This page-turner is the first of  a three-part series that includes Second Life and Third Life: Taken.

“I read Little Fires Everywhere in a single, breathless sitting.” –Jodi Picoult

“Witty, wise, and tender. It’s a marvel.” – Paula Hawkins

From the bestselling author of Everything I Never Told You, a riveting novel that traces the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives.

In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.

Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.

When old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town–and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides.  Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia’s past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs.

Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.

#BlogTour “Forbidden Love” by Mack Black

Book: Forbidden Love
Author: Mack Black
Genre: New Adult Romance
**LIVE NOW**
Book Two: Fragile Love coming August/September 2018 
Synopsis: 


It all started with a bet and a little too much weed.

Vanessa never imagined she’d fall into a relationship with the one person she couldn’t, but an apple tastes a lot better when taken from the forbidden tree. Even though loving him might be illegal in some states, even though it strips her morals bare, she can’t stop herself from falling down the rabbit hole, so to speak.

No matter how hard she tries, Vanessa can’t walk away from Jace. Their bodies are like magnets, drawn together at every opportunity. Worse, it’s like they’re tied together with some invisible rope that just won’t break. If his mother, or her father, find out, there will be hell to pay.

But love conquers all, right? 

Vanessa would like to think so…

Excerpt

Just when I’d made my mind up to go to his room, my door creaked open. Stepping in, he shut the door behind him, clicking the lock in place.

All of a sudden it became difficult to breathe. 

I couldn’t tear my eyes from him as he sauntered to my bed, my heart thumping harder and harder with every step he took. When he stopped at the edge, he wrapped his fingers around the post, tapping a rhythm against the wood, a song without a melody, but it still did something to me…something I didn’t want to admit out loud. 

“Why must you incessantly fuck with my head Lessa?” 

I gulped and scooted back into my headboard. “I—I don’t know what you’re talking about.” 

He swung around the pole, his body covering it. His tongue snaked out; licking his lip in such a sexy maneuver goosebumps slithered down my arms. His gaze scorched me, the heat from it pooling right between my legs. I shifted, squeezing my thighs together. 

He noticed, his lips turning up into a smirk. “The game could’ve gone on. But, instead, you hid in your room for a whole hour. And for what? To teach me a lesson?” He paused, tapping his index finger against his chin. “Or maybe you wanted to make me realize what I’ve done. Guess what, though? I know exactly what I’ve done. I know we are in uncharted territory.” He paused, a humorous gleam shining from his eyes. “You can throw all the lessons you want at me, Lessa. It won’t make a bit of difference. I won’t give in, not until I get what I want. And that is to be deep inside you.”

The Last Librarian (The Justar Journal Book 1)

by Brandt Legg

Never let them catch you reading.
Eighty years from now there is no war, no hunger, no pollution.
The government decides to close the last remaining library still housing physical books.
The contents will be burned. Almost no one notices. Almost no one cares.

In the year 2098, the world is secure and Earth’s 2.9 billion people are healthy and happy. After overcoming a series of calamities in the first half of the century, human advancements birthed a utopian society. When the government announces it will shut down the last library and destroy the books, it hardly seems important. But in addition to the dusty volumes, the library holds many secrets. Unless an unlikely trio can save the books, humanity will lose more than just what is printed on those antique pages.

With a single government ruling the entire planet, using one currency and one language, the population is unified and enjoying the prosperity that comes with more than seven decades of peace. Free healthcare for all, and guaranteed employment, make the future a dream. But this future is only safe if the AOI can hide the past.

The impossible task of rescuing the books, discovering their secrets, and unraveling the paradox, is up to an angry author, a brazen revolutionary and the last librarian. When everything is perfect, the only thing left to fear is the truth.
