Finished Last Week
Infernal Shriver by Jocelyne Farrah
Alistair is the last of the Shrivers, the Church’s elite core of confessors. An emotionless killer, he confesses and executes his marks without mercy.
Raised in an atmosphere of luxury and wealth and a member of the Lilith brood, Saryl wants for nothing more than a night of freedom from the stifling rules of Stygian etiquette — until she meets a dark and lethal man from the mortal realm…Her executioner.
Something goes terribly wrong and now as danger closes in on all sides, the forbidden attraction between Alistair and Saryl proves hard to resist… A passion that could doom them both.
Playing Defense by Cate Cameron
She’s out of his league…
This Entangled Teen Crush book contains adult language, swoon-worthy kisses, and sexy hockey players. It may cause you to watch a hockey game…or ten.
Sixteen-year-old Claudia Waring has never kissed a boy. Never been popular. Never been to a hockey game. All that’s about to change. Assigned to tutor Chris Winslow, a prank-loving, gorgeous hockey player, Claudia’s perfectly planned life immediately veers off course. And she kind of likes it. But as fun as Chris is, she knows she’ll never fit in his world.
After his latest prank lands him in hot water, Chris has to get serious about school or lose hockey. Not an easy thing for someone as carefree as the defenseman. The biggest problem, though, is how much he wants to help his cute, buttoned-up tutor loosen up a little. But while confidence has never been a problem for him, around Claudia, Chris is all nerves. Why would a girl as smart as her ever fall for a jock like him
The Crown and the Arrow by Renee Ahdieh

Khalid didn’t know how many more of these dawns he could take. And there was something about this latest girl that piqued his interest. Not only had she volunteered to marry him, but at their wedding ceremony, she had seemed not the least bit afraid. In fact, what he had seen in her eyes was nothing short of pure hatred. She was about to lose her life. Why wasn’t she afraid? Why did she hate him so? He had never before gone to his wife’s chambers before her death at dawn. Tonight would be different.
The distance from A to Z by Natalie Blitt
This full-length novel by debut author Natalie Blitt is a pitch-perfect blend of Stephanie Perkins and Miranda Kenneally that proves the age-old adage: opposites attract.
Seventeen-year old Abby has only one goal for her summer: to make sure she is fluent in French—well, that, and to get as far away from baseball and her Cubs-obsessed family as possible. A summer of culture and language, with no sports in sight.
That turns out to be impossible, though, because her French partner is the exact kind of boy she was hoping to avoid. Eight weeks. 120 hours of class. 80 hours of conversation practice with someone who seems to exclusively wear baseball caps and jerseys.
But Zeke in French is a different person than Zeke in English. And Abby can’t help but fall for him, hard. As Abby begins to suspect that Zeke is hiding something, she has to decide if bridging the gap between the distance between who she is and who he is, is worth the risk

Rule de Jay Crownover
Rule est la première saison d’une série passionnante sur l’univers du tatouage et du métal.
Lorsqu’elle était adolescente, les très riches parents de Shaw Landon se sont peu occupés d’elle. Elle a alors trouvé refuge dans la famille Archer où elle était particulièrement proche de Remy, frère jumeau de Rule, aujourd’hui décédé dans un accident de voiture. Elle est liée à cette famille plus qu’à la sienne. Mais Shaw est depuis toujours secrètement amoureuse de Rule, ce qui l’empêche d’avoir de véritables relations avec d’autres hommes. Rule, lui, voit en elle une fille à papa, trop sérieuse et surtout la petite amie de son défunt frère. De plus tout les oppose : de nature rebelle et fêtard, il est tatoueur et tatoué, a des piercings et les cheveux de toutes les couleurs. Avec son look classique, elle est sage et concentrée sur ses études de médecine. Mais parfois il suffit d’une jupe courte et de quelques cocktails pour que le regard que l’on porte sur quelqu’un change. Les secrets sont révélés et que rien ne sera plus jamais comme avant… Rule et Shaw tenteront de comprendre ce qu’ils ressentent et d’être ce que l’autre attend. Mais entre les traumatismes de leurs familles respectives, les habitudes de coureur de jupons de Rule, l’emploi du temps chargé de Shaw et son ex qui la harcèle, ces deux-là auront bien du mal à se trouver. Leur amour sera-t-il plus fort que leurs différences ?
L’ambiance de cette série est celle d’un salon de tatouage, de concerts de métal, le tout agrémenté de délires de colocataires et de virées dans leur ville natale.
