Heist School Freshmen by Alan Gallauresi



Angelo Bastillo has just started high school, and already his life is over: dumped by the dream girl he's been crushing on for years, hating every class, terrorized by twin bullies, and forced to consult a suicide line in lieu of therapy by his overprotective (and incredibly cheap) father. Then he, his best friend Drew Wales and the geeky new kid in school, Lionel "Porno Name" Tang, stumble upon a secret cache of dirty money that can make them rich -- if they can only find a way to steal it. So, they decide to put together a team.
 
Meet their crew: Portia Wentworth, gorgeous drama club temptress with a secret, now turned con artist. Kyle Williams is their hitman-for-hire computer hacker with a heart of stone. And Charles Crewel, the "nice guy" star football player sidelined with a season ending injury? Well, he's the muscle of the operation -- all 283 bone-crunching pounds of him. When the team adds the suspect assistance of a mysterious senior class mastermind known only as "The Saint", all the pieces begin to fall into place. 
 
Now Angelo is ready to plan an incredible heist to pull off the big score. Everyone is counting on him. But with his daily life full of complicated boy/girl drama, depression, sub-minimum wage "character building", completely unnecessary pop quizzes, and a truly unhealthy but incredibly satisfying amount of videogames, can he finish the job and still manage to finish freshman year?
 
This "entertaining and brilliantly comic novel"* is sure to appeal to teens, fans of young adult literature, crime buffs, people who still keep old episodes of Leverage on their Tivo (even though their hard drive is getting pretty full) -- basically, anyone who ever went to high school and wished it could have been just a little bit more thrilling, and a whole lot funnier.

Charred Heart (#1, Heart of Fire) by Lizzy Ford

Modern day retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" 

***Recommended for ages 18+ due to multiple, creative, detailed, steamy, sexy-time adult situations.*** 

For a thousand years, Chace has searched for a way to break the curse placed on him by a jilted lover. He’s a dragon shifter, one who can’t control when the magic will force him into a different form. He’s already lost everyone he ever cared about a few times over and doesn’t know how much longer he’s meant to suffer. 

At his wit’s end, he makes a deal with a mysterious figure that offers him what he wants most – an end to his misery – in exchange for everything that’s his: His life, his power. His heart. 

The next day, he meets Skylar, a modern day dragon slayer whose mission is to cage him – or kill him. Sexy, witty and brave, she is the yin to his yang, the woman destined to break the curse, balance his magic and make his broken heart whole. 

Except it’s too late. Not only has he sealed his fate, but an innocent one-night-stand with Skylar has dragged her into the middle of a deal with the devil, one she won’t escape, if he can’t convince her that dragon shifters aren’t her enemies.
