Off Trail

by Rick Polito


A laugh-out-loud coming of age story of one teen’s preposterous experience in a wilderness therapy program.

 

Daniel grew up in the shadow of his older sister, the brash, self-assured, and utterly reckless Jackie, now living with her dirtbag boyfriend and wandering through dead-end jobs. When his parents find her marijuana stash in his closet and decide they do not want him to turn out like his sister, Daniel suffers the “trickle-down parenting” effect and is sent to Quest Trail.

Surrounded by other similarly uprooted teens, Daniel endures a series of preposterous self-discovery exercises and gets caught up in a rivalry with Troy, a too-tough poser, as they vie for the attention of Vera, a charismatic California teen who grew up with too much money and not enough emotional connection.

Just as Daniel’s confidence begins to grow and things start to look up, the Quest Trail program dissolves into complete chaos.

Sometimes humorous, sometimes painful, Off Trail shows an authentic account of all the embarrassing and heart-wrenching moments of being a teen.

Scholarship Girl (Shadow Academy Book 1)

by Kat Cotton


Shadow Academy has many secrets… and I’m one of them.

Plucked from foster care and offered a scholarship to an elite school, I figured I had it made. It didn’t take long to discover how this school worked. Scholarship kids at the bottom of the heap, and way at the top, Ren Worthington. With his breath-taking good looks and bottomless pits of family money, you’d think he’d have better things to do than bully us poor kids.

Not so.

Ren and the other human students live their lives unaware of the creatures lurking in the dark. I wasn’t given that scholarship just for my academic skills. We’re all half-bloods and freaks - fae, witch, shifter, demon. In return for our free ride, we protect the rich brats from paranormal dangers.

When one student goes missing and Ren’s life is threatened, I get made an offer. Become Ren’s tutor/bodyguard and my future is assured. But if Ren dies or discovers what I am, I’m out of here. As if he'd discover what I am. I don't even know myself. I'm weak and powerless but they want me for the job. Who knows why?

I don’t want to get close to Ren, I don’t want to get to know him and I sure don't want to succumb to his charms, but I have no choice. And I discover, things aren’t what they seem on the surface.

Shadow Academy has many secrets… and maybe Ren is one of them.

Shadow Academy is a young adult academy series with slow burn, fated couple romance.

Calculated

Set in Shanghai and Seattle, Calculated is a gritty, modern day blend of the Count of Monte Cristo and Mission Impossible.

 

She has many names – Octavia, Double 8, Phoenix, Josephine. She’s a math prodigy, a calculating genius and everyone wants her.

In seventeen-year-old Jo River’s complicated world of numbers, there’s no such thing as coincidence. When she is betrayed by someone she loves, kidnapped by the world’s most wanted smuggler, and forced to use her talent to shore up a criminal empire, Jo deems her gift a curse—until she meets Red.

Fellow captive and unlikely sage, Red teaches Jo to harness her true potential, so she can do more than just escape. Before he dies, Red reveals a secret about her enemies and makes her vow to right his wrongs. But Jo has a vow of her own.

With help from Chan, a bitter billionaire, and Kai, his off-limits son, Jo rises into a new role, ready to take down those who ruined her life. Until a mathematical error comes back to haunt her with a threat much more dangerous than the criminals on the loose.

To beat the odds, Jo must decide who she really is and if risking everything is worth it.

After all, history is not made—it’s calculated.

With themes of revenge and forgiveness, loss and identity, brainpower versus brutality, and the triumph of right over might, it will resonate with readers everywhere.

The Golden Boys: Dark High School Bully Romance (Kings of Cypress Prep Book 1)

by Nikki Thorne


West Golden—so easy to hate, yet so hard to resist.


Don’t let that pretty face of his fool you. He isn’t the boy next door, or the kind you trust with your heart. He’s the devil in designer jeans, with all the charm of a bona fide psycho.

Trust me.

He swears I did something to cross him before I even stepped foot inside Cypress Prep, but it’s a lie. No one knows better than me that I’m all out of chances. One more misstep and I can kiss my future goodbye, which means I can’t possibly be guilty of whatever he thinks I’ve done.

West marks me with a target anyway, and as this town’s football star, no one dares to go against him. His money, status, and the loyalty of his equally entitled brothers makes him seem untouchable. Only, I know better than that.

This false god isn’t infallible like he wants the world to believe. Whenever I stare into those devilish green eyes, I see it plain as day. The chink in his armor. His one and only weakness.

Me.

The King of Cypress Prep has finally met his match, and taking him down just became an inside job.

***
The Golden Boys are all smokin’ hot, but there’s only one guy for Blue Riley, which means this romance isn’t a reverse harem. Also, full disclosure, this saga does contain strong bully themes. So, if you’re not into romances where hate turns into love (well … eventually), and if you don’t like your heroes of the unapologetically alpha variety, this might not be the book for you. There is no rape or dubious consent whatsoever. However, due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.

This series is sure to give you GOSSIP GIRL and ONE TREE HILL vibes, and the angst will keep you burning through the pages to find out what happens next. One-click and get lost in this series today!

Smooches!

The Unveiled Academy: Two Complete Series: includes Paranormal University and Penny and Boots Series

by Michael Anderle


Claire Hinterland and Penny Hingston might be attending classes on opposite sides of the country, but they share something in common: they can see the ancient beings from myth and legend that are coming through the veil. Which results in both attending classes at Unveiled Academy.

Get both the Penny and Boots Complete Series Omnibus AND Paranormal University Complete Series Omnibus - 8 books total - to attend class and find out how to protect themselves and the world from these creatures.

Paranormal University:
At the University of Paranormal Studies, class is starting.

Claire just received her letter of acceptance despite the fact that she didn’t apply. Why does the university want her?

Because ghosts, vampires, werewolves, elves, dragons…They exist, and more are crossing into our world every day. The problem? Many of them want to kill us.

Claire has a rare ability to actually see these creatures. See? Heck, her best friend is a drunk leprechaun.

Coming from a small town, Claire thought her future prospects were flipping chicken at the local fast food joint. Now she’s traveling to Boston, where she’ll learn how to fight this ‘mythological invasion’. She never thought she’d be in a class called Vampires 101 but…

Claire’s a soldier in this new war – she will be humanity’s most dangerous asset.

And if Claire and her classmates fail? If they don’t learn fast enough and fight hard enough?

Well, graduation won’t matter too much when the world is reduced to ashes.

Penny and Boots:
Not everyone can see the ancient beings from myth and legend as they slip through the veil.

Penny Hingston can’t just see them… she’s best friends with one.

Perhaps that’s how Penny and Boots landed a recruitment letter for the Academy of Myth and Legend.

Who’s Boots? She’s a serpent. Not just any serpent — she’s a Rainbow Serpent, an ancient Australian Dreamtime legend come to life. It's actually not so unusual these days. Mythical creatures are tumbling through the Veil every two seconds. The Academy not only teaches its students how to fight the bad ones, but to protect the good ones as well.

That's why Penny joined. She’s only there to make sure Boots stays safe. Once she figures out a plan, she’s out. At least, that's what she’s trying to convince herself — and her new friends, including Cisco. It's only a coincidence that Penny blushes when he talks to her, really!

Hunter (A Hunter Novel Book 1)

by Mercedes Lackey


They came after the Diseray. Some were terrors ripped from our collective imaginations, remnants of every mythology across the world. And some were like nothing anyone had ever dreamed up, even in their worst nightmares.


Monsters.

Long ago, the barriers between our world and the Otherworld were ripped open, and it's taken centuries to bring back civilization in the wake of the catastrophe. Now, the luckiest Cits live in enclosed communities, behind walls that keep them safe from the hideous creatures fighting to break through. Others are not so lucky.

To Joyeaux Charmand, who has been a Hunter in her tight-knit mountain community since she was a child, every Cit without magic deserves her protection from dangerous Othersiders. Then she is called to Apex City, where the best Hunters are kept to protect the most important people.

Joy soon realizes that the city's powerful leaders care more about luring Cits into a false sense of security than protecting them. More and more monsters are getting through the barriers, and the close calls are becoming too frequent to ignore. Yet the Cits have no sense of how much danger they're in-to them, Joy and her corp of fellow Hunters are just action stars they watch on TV.

When an act of sabotage against Joy takes an unbearable toll, Joy uncovers a terrifying conspiracy in the city. There is something much worse than the usual monsters infiltrating Apex. And it may be too late to stop them?

Voodoo Academy - The COMPLETE Boxed Set

by Theophilus Monroe


Being possessed has its advantages...

Sure, my soul-bound familiar could be a pain in the ass...

But she came with some pretty impressive abilities. 

A nasty Voodoo demigod, a Loa of Destruction, wants to steal her power. 

Ogoun, the Loa of War, has invited me to join the Voodoo Academy. 

If I master the arts, he tells me, I might have a chance to thwart the demigod's scheme.

But can any of these "gods" be trusted? 

They all have ulterior motives.

And I won't be a pawn in their war. 

But if I don't stop him, if he steals these powers... he could destroy the world. 

I'm an outsider. Not at all like the other students at the academy. I don't think they'll ever accept me.

But if I don't go, if I don't learn to control these abilities... it will mean the end of everything I hold dear. 

Go up and cick 'Read for Free' or 'Buy Now' to find out if Annabelle can master the Voodoo craft... or if the Loa of the Academy will exploit her to advance their own ambitions.  

Theophilus Monroe’s Annabelle Mulledy is a snarky badass heroine with attitude. Monroe draws on the legend and myth of Voodoo lore in a way that neither caricatures the arts as “demonic” nor glosses over the dark side of the Voodoo tradition. With dark magic, dragons, vampires, and a slow burn academy romance the The Voodoo Legacy complete series has something for everybody.

If you enjoy magic academy fantasy books and occult urban fantasy, especially books with a dark twist, then you will love Theophilus Monroe’s Voodoo Legacy.  Fans of authors like Michael Anderle, Martha Carr, Linsey Hall, or Ramy Vance will love this compelling coming of age urban fantasy epic. Pick up your copy today!

“Mullaly executes the work with finesse, effectively balancing a believable young cast with high, real-world stakes. . . engrossing.”- Kirkus Reviews

Aly Bennet has been in love with her friend Luke for years. She hasn’t told him how she feels for two reasons. 1) She’s the girl with HIV. 2) She lied about how she got it.

Aly never meant to lie. The words just slipped out on her first day of a support group for kids living with life-threatening conditions. It was the day she met Luke and Caroline, who would become her best friends and the closest thing she has to a family. After so many years, Aly doesn’t know how to tell her friends the truth. So she paints and she runs and she tries not to think about the future she can’t have.

But when a Boston prosecutor asks Aly to testify in a trial—and her relationship with Luke intensifies—things become complicated. If she testifies, Luke and Caroline will learn the truth—that Aly has been lying to them for most of a decade. If she doesn’t, a monster could go free, again.
