I write teen books. I teach high school. I'm a night person. I like ghost stories. I sometimes wonder if I have ADD, but I think I'm just easily bored. I am amazed by the insightful words on your pages.
Zin dances with fire in every step, speaks in a honey-sweet voice, and sees with eyes that can peer into your soul. Nicole's friendship with him is the only thing that saves her from the boredom of school and the turmoil of her family life. It's no wonder she is madly in love with him. But she can't understand why he keeps her at a distance, even though she can feel his soul reaching out for hers.
Zin is like no man Nicole has ever met, and he carries with him a very old secret. When Nicole uncovers the truth, her love may be the only thing that can save him from it.
"The door that was always closed is opening, and I am consumed. I don't know if a full minute goes by that I don't think of him, that I don't replay how it felt to have his hand brush mine, his eyes look my way.
And yet he's hiding, still. He talks as if my feelings for him are in the past, as if they couldn't possibly be relevant now that I now the truth about him. But I don't have that kind of power over how I feel. And if he doesn't know that, he's blind."
Ty Johnson knows survival. Since inheriting his pop's business at sixteen, Ty's developed smarts, skills, and mad discipline. The supply game's in his blood. And life is pretty sweet when you're on top.
But one slip - or one serious competitor - and life turns ugly fast. Suddenly, Ty's got to rethink his whole strategy. And for the number one dealer on the streets, strategy is not just about staying ahead. It's about survival.
