Wishing the happiest of book birthdays to these two brand new reads! I’ll have my ARC review up for Blood Metal Bone soon (it’s a wild ride, y’all), but read the blurbs below to decide which one you want to read first!
Do you typically read more contemporaries or fantasies? Let me know in the comments below!
“The Fourth Time Charm” (Fulton U #4) – Maya Hughes
Kiss #1 – I kicked him in the balls in his backyard tree house
Kiss #2 – Our braces locked together at our middle school dance
Kiss #3 – He confessed he’d only done it because I saved his dad’s life
I was determined there would never be Kiss #4. LJ Lewis is my best friend. A football god on campus. And the one guy I’m still hung up on.
Only now he’s my new roommate. After a fire leaves me with nowhere to go, my best friend gives me a place to sleep–in his bed.
But I’m not going to let those old feelings bubble up again. This is strictly platonic. 100% friend zone territory. Except for that morning wood that lasts long into the night.
When I wake up beside him, he tucks my hair behind my ear and stares into my eyes, making the swarm of butterflies in my stomach go bananas, it’s hard to remember he’s not into me.
Why would he be? I’m his oldest friend. His biggest cheerleader in the stands. And the Coach’s daughter…

Now known as the Devil of the Deadlands, Sonara survives as a thief on the edge of society, fighting for survival on a quest to uncover what really happened to her brother and whether he is even dead at all…
