indécise

 Depuis près de deux ans, Kiera a une relation amoureuse paisible avec Denny, petit ami attentionné, tendre et dévouée.  Une vie de couple parfaite s’annonce. Mais rien n’est jamais si simple en amour… Lorsque Denny obtient le job de ses  rêves, Kiera le suit à l’autre bout du pays et poursuit ses études. Ils font alors une collocation avec Kellan, chanteur de rock  et incorrigible tombeur. Kiera, serveuse dans ce même bar, est troublée par ses regards appuyés, au point que son gentil  petit ami lui semble bien fade. Ce dernier, garçon studieux et courageux, ne manque pourtant pas de qualités. Quand  Denny annonce qu’il doit partir deux mois pour son travail, c’est Kellan qui console Kiera. En ami… Une amitié qui aide la  jeune femme à supporter la solitude. Mais en une nuit, tout va basculer et aucun des trois n’en sortira indemne. Entre  amour, amitié et passion, 500 pages d’hésitations qui portent Kiera d’un homme à l’autre : ici la stabilité, là au danger.

Better When He’s Brave by Jay Crownover

G-Better when he's brave

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover’s third novel in her sexy, thrilling Welcome to the  Point series, a woman’s search for repentance leads her to the one man from her past she can’t forget as they join forces  to save their city—and the explosive love neither can live without.

Titus King has always seen his world in black and white. There is a firm right and wrong in his mind, which is why as a  teenager he left behind the only family he’d ever known to make a better life for himself. Now a police detective in one of  the worst cities in the country, he can’t deny his life has turned into a million different shades of gray.

The new criminal element in The Point has brought vengeance and destruction right to Titus’s front door, and walking  the straight and narrow seems far less important now. The difference between right and wrong is nothing compared to  keeping those he loves alive. To add to his already strained moral compass, the beautiful and mysterious Reeve Black has  made her way back to town. This girl might be as dangerous to Titus as the guy trying to destroy the Point but he can’t  walk away because he needs her—in more ways than one.

Reeve knows all about the threat trying to destroy The Point. She knows how ruthless, how vicious, and how cruel this new danger can be… and instead of running away, she wants to help. Reeve knows that she has a lot to repent for and saving the city, plus the hot cop that she hasn’t been able to forget might just be the only way she can finally find some inner peace.

With an entire city poised on the brink of war, Titus and Reeve stand in the crossfire—and it will take two brave souls to fight for the ultimate love.

 Every Last Breath by Jennifer L Armentrout

every last breath

 Some loves will last ’til your dying breath

Every choice has consequences—but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness.  Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest  of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around  her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the  enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.

Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old  bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you  have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell…

On Deck

 Public enemies by Ann Aguirre

public enemies

In Book 2 of the Immortal Game trilogy, Edie must learn the rules of the game . . . and then play better than anyone else.

Through a Faustian bargain, Edie Kramer has been pulled into the dangerous world of the Immortal Game, where belief  makes your nightmares real. Hungry for sport, fears-made-flesh are always raising the stakes. To them, human lives are  less than nothing, just pieces on a board.

Because of her boyfriend Kian’s sacrifice, she’s operating under the mysterious Harbinger’s aegis, but his patronage could  prove as fatal as the opposition. Raw from deepest loss, she’s terrified over the deal Kian made for her. Though her very  public enemies keep sending foot soldiers–mercenary monsters committed to her destruction–she’s not the one playing  under a doom clock. Kian has six months…unless Edie can save him. And this is a game she can’t bear to lose.

 

 

 

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

ugly love

 When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to  consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once  their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for  love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only  two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

 

Bounce by Noelle August

Bounce

 Playing the occasional club gig just isn’t cutting it for twenty-two-year-old cellist Skyler Canby, who’s trying to support  herself and her mother back home in Kentucky. Persuaded by her best friend Beth to accompany her on an audition for  the first feature film launched by Blackwood Entertainment, she figures why not? Beth’s a shoe-in for the lead, but maybe  Skyler’s newly dyed pink hair will help her stand out enough to score a small speaking part.

Never in her wildest dreams does Skyler imagine she’ll land the lead role or that she’ll have her shoes knocked off her feet  by the kiss her audition partner, Grey Blackwood, plants on her—a kiss that feels very real and not at all “acted. ”

After throwing a party that causes thousands of dollars of damage to his older brother’s home, reckless musician Grey  Blackwood gets roped into working off his debt on the set of his CEO brother’s newest project. Grey spends his days  fetching coffee and doing odd jobs around the studio, but he lives for nights when he performs with his band. He knows if  he can stay focused, success as a singer is just around the corner. But that’s tough with a distracting pink-haired girl  occupying his every waking thought.

Skyler and Grey have every reason to resist each other. But, like a song neither of them can get out of their minds, they have no choice but to go where the music takes them.
