I’ve fallen hard for an alien, but he’s harboring secrets.
Massive secrets that threaten the very essence of humanity.
How can I give him my heart when his race plans on taking my future?
Sadie Owens has been slowly dying inside. Bit by bit, piece by piece, day by day. Trapped in a life she hates, she relies on only one person—herself.
Despised by her family and betrayed by an unscrupulous government, Sadie dreams of a different life. When she is chosen to participate in the government’s new social experiment, she is ecstatic at the prospect of spending six months in Thalassic City, the shiny new city under the sea.
Immediately drawn to Logan Chandler, Sadie is captivated by the beautiful boy with the ocean-blue eyes. Logan seems to embody everything that has been forbidden, but he isn’t all he appears to be.
Confused over Logan’s true intentions and concerned when best friend Jenna starts transforming in front of her eyes, Sadie partners with newcomer Jarod in a bid to uncover the government’s real agenda. The truth is more shocking than anything she could ever have imagined.
When Sadie finally understands why the Saven walk among us, will it be too late to save her heart and the human race?
We stand toe to toe. Man, I wish his face didn’t affect me so potently, but I’ve had a lifetime’s experience of wearing a mask, so I adopt my usual blank expression and present the guise that hides the true extent of my feelings. “Let’s hear it.” I look at him as if I’m looking straight through him.
“Let’s sit.” He threads his fingers through mine as he leads me off to the right of the path. My composure wobbles dangerously, and my treacherous fingers curl involuntarily around his smooth, warm hand. Then anger rears its head again, and I yank my hand free. Jarod is right. Who the hell does this guy think he is?
Logan stares at me as if I’m the one who’s done something wrong. I glare at him, hoping he gets the message.
“I like holding your hand.” He just puts it out there.
“Well, I don’t like holding yours,” I lie.
“Come on now, Sadie. We both know that’s a total fib.”
I shove my hands in my jeans pocket lest he make another attempt. “Can we be done with this already?” I implore.
A bench materializes in front of us. “Sit,” he commands.
“Do you have to be so bossy all the time?” I sink down onto the bench.
“You think I’m bossy?” His eyes crinkle.
“As if you don’t know.” I tut-tut.
He appears to seriously ponder this while I sit there waiting for him to start. “Jarod is waiting for me. Can we hurry this up, please?”
His face contorts into an unpleasant grimace. “What’s the story between you two? Is he your boyfriend?” He lowers his face to mine, rendering me momentarily speechless.
“I’m not discussing Jarod with you. Say your piece so I can go.”
He grinds his teeth, making a repetitive clicking sound. “I know what transpired with Dante, and I’m here to make sure you do as Haydn told you. You are to stay away from him. Do you understand?”
A flare of rage sparks to life and I hop up. This guy is unbelievable! I can count on one hand the amount of times I’ve given in to my temper in the course of the last seventeen years on this planet. I’m normally a model of calm temperament. This time, I’m incapable of any restraint. “What gives you the right to demand what I do or don’t do? It is none of your business, and I can’t believe Haydn betrayed my confidence with you, of all people!”
“You’re angry with me over what went down in the Mock-Up Facility.” He says this very matter-of-fact, as if he didn’t lead me on a wild goose chase.
“No. Yes.” I flap my hands in the air. “That’s got nothing to do with this. I’ve had my fill of people telling me what to do, so you don’t get to dictate to me!” I jab my finger in his chest and it meets a wall of solid muscular resistance. Right away, I’m distracted. “Why does it matter anyway?” I’m trying hard not to gape at his body.
His look softens.
Perhaps I should be grateful so many people seem to care about me, but after years of the opposite treatment, I’m already starting to feel smothered.
Is it too much to expect some kind of healthy medium?
