Breaking Drake by Joel Abernathy

Breaking Drake by Joel Abernathy

Sterling Crane is my idol, my inspiration, and my rival—and I’m determined to be the one who brings him to his knees. He has other ideas, of course, and I keep going back for more.

I’m horrified when the news breaks that the bands we manage are merging, and we’re all going to share a home like one big happy family. Horrified because I hate Sterling more than anything in this world—and because I know I’m not going to be able to stay away from him.

He’s a god amongst men, and the worst part is, he knows it. Am I ever going to stop worshiping him?… Read more.

The Guest List by Lucy Foley

The bride ‧ The plus one ‧ The best man ‧ The wedding planner ‧ The bridesmaid ‧ The body

On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed… Read more.

Her brother disappeared two years ago, leaving her with no family or species to speak of. She hides among humans, spending her days working at a bar and her nights searching for him. The bleak pattern goes on and on… until she catches the eye of a powerful faerie.

He makes no attempt to hide that he desires Fortuna. And in exchange for her, he offers something irresistible. So Fortuna reluctantly leaves her safe existence behind to step back into a world of creatures and power. It soon becomes clear that she may not have bargained with her heart, but her very life.

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

Vanessa Mazur knows she’s doing the right thing. She shouldn’t feel bad for quitting.
