Finished Last Week
A la place du coeur d’Arnaud Cathrine

a-la-place-du-coeur

Ce soir, Caumes a 17 ans et attend le déluge. Il ne sait qu’une chose : à la fin de l’année, il quittera sa ville natale pour rejoindre son frère aîné à Paris. Paris, la ville rêvée. Ce soir, Caumes a 17 ans et attend aussi le miracle qui, à son grand étonnement, survient : Esther – sujet de tous ses fantasmes – se décide enfin à lui adresser plus de trois mots, à le regarder droit dans les yeux et à laisser deviner un “plus si affinités”
Nous sommes le mardi 6 janvier 2015 et le monde de Caumes bascule : le premier amour s’annonce et la perspective obsédante de la “première fois”. Sauf que le lendemain, c’est la France qui bascule à son tour : deux terroristes forcent l’entrée du journal Charlie Hebdo et font onze victimes…
À la place du cœur, c’est ça : une semaine, jour après jour, et quasiment heure par heure, à vivre une passion sauvageonne et exaltante ; mais une semaine également rivée sur les écrans à tenter de mesurer l’horreur à l’œuvre, à tenter de ne pas confondre l’information en flux continu avec un thriller télé de plus. Comment l’amour (qui, par définition, postule que le monde peut bien s’écrouler) cohabite-t-il avec la mort en marche ?
Comment faire tenir ça dans un seul corps, dans une seule conscience ? Comment respirer à fond le parfum de la fille qu’on aime et comprendre, dans le même temps, que le monde qui nous attend est à terre ?

Rebelle du désert d’Alwyn Hamilton

rebelle-du-desert

Amani vit dans le désert du Miraji. Elle n’a qu’un rêve : quitter sa ville, Dustwalk, et découvrir le reste du monde. Alors qu’elle participe à une compétition de tir, elle rencontre un jeune homme, Jin, qui est recherché pour trahison. Après quelques malentendus, ils se retrouvent à fuir Dustwalk ensemble, traversant le désert, combattant contre des goules et autres monstres surnaturels : des chevaux qui se transforme en sable dès qu’ils sont capturés.

 

 

 

Lost Girl by Merrie Destefano

lost-girls

Yesterday, Rachel went to sleep listening to Taylor Swift, curled up in her grammy’s quilt, worrying about geometry. Today, she woke up in a ditch, bloodied, bruised, and missing a year of her life.

She doesn’t recognize the person she’s become: she’s popular. She wears nothing but black.

Black to cover the blood.

And she can fight.

Tell no one.

She’s not the only girl to go missing within the last year…but she’s the only girl to come back. She desperately wants to unravel what happened to her, to try and recover the rest of the Lost Girls.

But the more she discovers, the more her memories return. And as much as her new life scares her, it calls to her. Seductively. The good girl gone bad, sex, drugs, and raves, and something darker…something she still craves—the rush of the fight, the thrill of the win—something she can’t resist, that might still get her killed…

The only rule is: There are no rules.

Hollywood Prince by Kim Karr

hollywood-prince

Brooklyn James should know better.
Born into Hollywood royalty, the brooding prince has a reputation as being a player. A manwhore. A womanizer.
Adoring fans are his thing.
His best friend’s little sister is not.
Even thinking about her the way he is isn’t cool.
Not cool at all.
And yet every time she pouts those sexy lips at him, she turns him inside out. Makes him harder than he’s ever been. Drives him to the brink of insanity.

Amelia Waters has always idolized her big brother, and the last thing she wants to do is disappoint him.
Falling for her brother’s ex-roommate is off-limits.
She knows this, but she can’t help herself.
The way Brooklyn looks at her with those smoldering blue eyes makes her wet in an instant. Turns her into a shivering, shaking mess of sexual frustration. And soon the idea of spreading her legs for him is the only thing she can think about.

She wants him.
He wants her.

When they finally decide to give in to their insane attraction, they agree it will remain between them. That their illicit affair will be short-term. No strings. No baggage. No messy ending.

But when the first night of mind-blowing sex leads to another, and another still, how long can the endless hookups go on before Amelia’s brother finds out? Or worse yet, before feelings develop?

Brooklyn and Amelia know they need to walk away from each other before either of those things happens.

The problem is doing it.

Talk about a mess.

Hollywood Prince is a sexy, standalone, contemporary romance about a bad boy and the off-limits girl who steals his heart.

Phantom Kiss by Chloe Neill
phantom-kiss

In this all-new novella from the New York Times bestselling author of Midnight Marked, Merit, Ethan, and the rest of Cadogan House crew discover that not all undead creatures are kindred spirits…

Vampires generally aren’t afraid of things that go bump in the night, but Merit and Ethan are extra jumpy after a recent attack by a dark sorcerer. So when they learn that someone is messing with graves in Chicago’s cemeteries, stealing skulls and snatching souls, they fear that their powerful foe might be back for even more magical vengeance.

But after a specter begins haunting Cadogan House—and targeting vampires—they realize that their being taunted by an altogether different sort of monster. A ghoulish villain straight out of the Windy City’s urban legends is on the prowl—and he won’t stop until he’s killed again…

Includes a sneak peek of Blade Bound, the epic final novel in the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series.
