>> Vitality by Crysta Levere
>> Synopsis <<
A violent passion. A dangerous bond. A nightmare that will change everything.
> To Ava, love is about as real as fairytales. But it might be that fairytales, myths, and magic have some truth to them after all — as well as the monsters that lie in the shadows. Or she could just be completely out of her mind.
After a mental breakdown and a move to a new town, everything changes when Ava clashes with a stranger with eyes as black as midnight and a terrifying sinister air. Her wishes to feel something again become granted. But Ava soon learns that not only is he as cold as he is beautiful, but he brings something out of her, stronger than ever, like fuel to fire — something she’s desperate to bury. He haunts her dreams and waking life, and staying away becomes harder than she could have ever imagined, risking her life, her humanity, and the people that she cares about. Not to mention the fate of the world.
She’s fighting for life. He’s fighting for death.
What does it take to live? What does it take to love?

>> Synopsis <<
> Officer Ryan Quinn, a rookie raised in a family of cops, is on the fast track to detective until he shoots an unarmed black male. Now, with his career, reputation and freedom on the line, he embarks on a quest for redemption that forces him to confront his fears and biases and choose between conscience or silence.
Jade Wakefield is an emotionally damaged college student living in one of Philadelphia’s worst neighborhoods. She knows the chances of getting an indictment against the cop who killed her brother are slim. When she learns there’s more to the story than the official police account, Jade is determined, even desperate, to find out what really happened. She plans to get revenge by any means necessary.
Kelly Randolph, who returns to Philadelphia broke and broken after abandoning his family ten years earlier, seeks forgiveness while mourning the death of his son. But after he’s thrust into the spotlight as the face of the protest movement, his disavowed criminal past resurfaces and threatens to derail the family’s pursuit of justice.
Ryan, Jade, and Kelly–three people from different worlds—are on a collision course after the shooting, as their lives interconnect and then spiral into chaos.

>> Instinct by Allison Blackwood
>> Synopsis <<
> She remembered the day her mother was taken.
The clan was small back then, and she was only a young child. They weren’t enough. The two menacing males came lumbering into their community, grunting and brandishing their spears. And when one kicked her to the ground, knocking the wind from her lungs, she could do nothing but watch as they picked her mother up and carried her off, never to be seen again.
It was a hard lesson she had learned that day, but an invaluable one: Men were cruel. Men were dangerous. Men were not to be trusted.
So why then didn’t she have the courage to kill the dark-haired, dark-eyed stranger who had wandered into her little clearing? Why did he smile at her like that? Why did he offer her his food? Why did he bring her pretty flowers?
And why, why did she suddenly have the inexplicable, irresistible urge to reach out and touch him…?
