Rex has firsthand knowledge of how love can rip a person to shreds. How it
can swallow a person whole, leaving them gasping for air, and dying a lonely
person. He watched his mother give everything she had to his father and then
she died, too weak and frail to continue on. His father, the deranged man who
could barely feed himself—taking care of him left a permanent crease on Rex's
heart. He swears he can still hear his pleas for help in his sleep. Nothing can
give him solace from the painful memories.
Except this girl.
Hayes is a constant and consistent optimist. She's witnessed her mother and
father’s almost perfect marriage and taken it as an example of what she wants.
But she can’t seem to find a guy who is sincere. She’s dated them all—
snake-in-the-grass jerks, straight-up commitment-phobes, fakes and phonies
alike. They all fit her perfect dream on the outside, but when the relationship
gets to the nitty gritty, they all crumble like stale bread.
Unable to find a better man, she settles for nothing instead, wondering if
a man who treats her right could even exist. With perfect parents and a team
name like I Kilda Girl, that man would have a lot to live up to.
Until this boy.
When she sees a rugged, tattooed guy who shows up at all the derby bouts,
she wonders if chasing the bad boy might just be right.
In spite of her mother’s protests, Alma has decided to
visit the Island of the Dolls on the day before El Dia de Los Muertos. She is
bound and determined to go, sure that it is just an island that rumor has
When she gets there, it is impossible to ignore the doll
that seems to call to her.
But there are rules when you take a doll from the island.
Rules that can never be broken—unless you are willing to
pay the price.
There are skeletons in every closet. Some stay quiet—and some rule your soul with an iron fist.
Ezra is ruled by the ghosts of his past—and needled by the guilt they create. Not only does he have to manage his own guilt—his friends are forced to bear the weight as well. He lives in limbo, never dreaming of anything that lies beyond the grave. In his mind, he’s a murderer, pure and simple.
Hide and seek is Aysa’s game. She begs for small spaces and empty places. But, she secretly desires so much more. When they find each other, a hope for something new is sprung. But Ezra’s skeletons are out for blood.
“I hide shock well. I’m a pro at hiding. I have no idea that whatever he had to tell me would be so personal—so heartbreaking. But, I quickly remembered that heartbreak was all around him every time he turned around. He needs no more empathy or sympathy in his life. He craves someone to give him a different take on a tired situation. And different is practically my middle name.”

I’ve loved her since we were kids. But
loving someone gets tough when they don’t love you back.
Nixon Black has made mistakes. He made one
mistake that would change his life forever. Now he’s working and in school—and
he’s got a three year old. He gave up dating when Scout was born, but every
night he retreats to another life in his mind, one he could’ve had with her.
Journey spent her formative years on the
arm of any boy that didn’t expect anything out of her. She was hiding from the
one person who did expect something in return—Nixon. Years after being cheated
on and dumped for the last time, she takes a job at a daycare center where
there’s a genius of a ginger haired girl whose last name is Black.
But the roles have been reversed and
Journey is no longer Nixon’s first priority. Can he make room for the new
Journey? And when he does, will he be able to forgive the old one?
