Homecoming (The 100 #3) by Kass Morgan

A-Homecoming

Weeks after landing on Earth, the Hundred have managed to create a sense of order amidst their wild, chaotic  surroundings. But their delicate balance comes crashing down with the arrival of new dropships from space.

These new arrivals are the lucky ones – back on the Colony, the oxygen is almost gone – but after making it safely to  Earth, GLASS’s luck seems to be running out. CLARKE leads a rescue party to the crash site, ready to treat the wounded,  but she can’t stop thinking about her parents who may still be alive. Meanwhile, WELLS struggles to maintain his  authority despite the presence of the Vice Chancellor and his armed guards, and BELLAMY must decide whether to face  or flee the crimes he thought he’d left behind.

It’s time for the Hundred to come together and fight for the freedom they’ve found on Earth, or risk losing everything –  and everyone – they love.

Everything That Makes You by Moriah McStay

Everything that makes you by Moriah McStay

One girl. Two stories. Meet Fiona Doyle. The thick ridges of scar tissue on her face are from an accident twelve years ago. Fiona has notebooks full of songs she’s written about her frustrations, her dreams, and about her massive crush on beautiful uber-jock Trent McKinnon. If she can’t even find the courage to look Trent straight in his beautiful blue eyes, she sure isn’t brave enough to play or sing any of her songs in public. But something’s changing in Fiona. She can’t be defined by her scars anymore.

And what if there hadn’t been an accident? Meet Fi Doyle. Fi is the top-rated female high school lacrosse player in the state, heading straight to Northwestern on a full ride. She’s got more important things to deal with than her best friend Trent McKinnon, who’s been different ever since the kiss. When her luck goes south, even lacrosse can’t define her anymore. When you’ve always been the best at something, one dumb move can screw everything up. Can Fi fight back?

Hasn’t everyone wondered what if? In this daring debut novel, Moriah McStay gives us the rare opportunity to see what might have happened if things were different. Maybe luck determines our paths. But maybe it’s who we are that determines our luck.

 

On Deck 

Louise by Diana Nixon (I hope I’ll have it soon)

Louise

 It doesn’t hurt to dream, unless you know your dreams will never come true.

Since childhood, Louise Woods has wanted to become a dancer. The day she arrives at Le Papillon – a private cabaret  club where men come to enjoy the beauty of women dancing, her life completely changes. Louise lives in the club and the  rules of living and working there cannot be ignored or broken. Either you do your best to please the clients, or you are  out. No flirting, no secret affairs, just dancing.

During her first public show, Louise meets a stranger who pays for the privilege to have her privately dance for him. He  won’t let her see his face, he won’t even introduce himself, but he will make an offer that she won’t be able to refuse. He  won’t make any hollow promises, but he will make her believe she is special…

“I hate following the rules,” he’ll say, “but I do love breaking them.”

Will she dare to risk losing everything she has, just to make the darkest of the stranger’s fantasies come true? Once the decision is made, there will be no way back…

 

Mortal Danger (Immortal Game #1) by Ann Aguirre

Mortal Danger

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Edie Kramer has a score to settle with the beautiful people at Blackbriar Academy. Their cruelty drove her to the brink of  despair, and four months ago, she couldn’t imagine being strong enough to face her senior year. But thanks to a Faustian  compact with the enigmatic Kian, she has the power to make the bullies pay. She’s not supposed to think about Kian once  the deal is done, but devastating pain burns behind his unearthly beauty, and he’s impossible to forget.

In one short summer, her entire life changes, and she sweeps through Blackbriar, prepped to take the beautiful people  down from the inside. A whisper here, a look there, and suddenly… bad things are happening. It’s a heady rush, seeing  her tormentors get what they deserve, but things that seem too good to be true usually are, and soon, the pranks and  payback turns from delicious to deadly. Edie is alone in a world teeming with secrets and fiends lurking in the shadows.  In this murky morass of devil’s bargains, she isn’t sure who—or what–she can trust. Not even her own mind…
