Detailed book overview
Love can be a strange thing.
You can have it at one point, and be completely lonely at another.
We all have that one guy who we fall in love with: the one that we give our heart to.
But the thing about being swept off your feet is that sometimes, it ends with a thud.
In my case, we were quite close—until we drifted apart.
We could count on each other at all times—until that wasn’t the case anymore.
We were stupidly in love—until we got torn apart.
We had to move on—even though we couldn’t stop holding on.
This is our story.
All your reservations end at the door.
This is where all your darkest desires come true.
These three weeks will be the most unforgettable of your life. Anything goes. All your deepest fantasies are allowed.
Lexa Novak would relish nothing more than to let loose and at long last enjoy the complete experience.
So when she gets the opportunity, Lexa jumps at it head first.
However, what happens when your darkest desires become your realities?
There’s only one way of finding out.
This is Suite 269. You may enter!
Upon waking up, two women are shocked to realize that they are in a jail that’s thousands of miles away from home.
Recounting their adventure before an unsympathetic judge, the women present a witty and incredibly detailed tale of the road trip that got them into a lot of trouble.
While struggling with age, weight, and other devils of their own, the women don’t just find the open road and a life they lost while in their twenties, but they also find themselves.
From heartbreaks to car thefts and hazy recollections of experiences in New Mexico, this is one hilarious journey of things that people write about, but don’t really do.
She should have been named Chaos, since trouble continually followed her.
I wanted to make her mine.
That ship however sailed a long time ago.
I messed up badly.
But now I'm back, hoping to make amends for my missed opportunities.
How will I make Maddie Cross desire me once again?
I should have never given my heart to Luke Gunner.
It was dumb and foolish.
This was a doomed voyage, as he was my brother's closest friend.
I was foolishly in love with him.
I always do the kind of things that I shouldn’t be doing.
And now that Luke is back, I’m going to do it all over again.
I’m on the verge of committing a crime, and I’m actually thrilled about it.
However, there are more important things that I need to deal with first.
This is everything but easy.
Tony Fretolli, the head of the Acerbi family, looks over me.
His pistol is fully loaded in anticipation.
I don’t need to be reminded that when she enters, I’ll have to rescue her too.
If there is one thing that I’ve learnt, then it’s that falling in love, and being connected to the mob, is a terrible combination.
The world is no longer what it used to be. It’s all gone.
At this point, I’m only certain of two things.
One, those creatures that attacked us took my sister.
Two, I’ll stop at nothing to get her back.
Not even death will be enough to stop me.
New York City is a grim shadow of its former self.
Just a month ago, Earth was besieged by mysterious creatures hell-bent on destroying our home.
And when my twin sister and I attempted to assist, the impossible happened: she was taken from the street right before my very eyes.
But I’ll get her back, if it’s the last thing I do!
I’m rejected and broken.
But that’s not the hard part.
The real assignment lies in rebuilding after my mother's affair and deceit.
I gave up everything, to create my own path.
But now I’m back.
And he thinks that I’m just like my mother.
I desperately need him.
He is my only salvation.
She is a liar and a backstabber.
And now she wants to crawl back into my life.
But I won’t buy it.
I don’t want anything to do with her.
She and her mother are one and the same.
We are foes.
Nothing will ever change that.
