The Beautiful Ashes (Broken Destiny #1)
by Jeaniene Frost
Release Date: August 26th 2014

In a world of shadows, anything is possible. Except escaping your fate. 

Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse—her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her. 

Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn't mean he can change his fate…no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy. Together they search for the powerful relic that can save her sister, but Adrian knows what Ivy doesn't: that every step brings Ivy closer to the truth about her own destiny, and a war that could doom the world. Sooner or later, it will be Ivy on one side and Adrian on the other. And nothing but ashes in between…

Jess's thoughts: "It's been a looooooong time since I read anything by this author, I loved her adult stuff. And this book sounds amazing, and I honestly cannot wait to read it! Besides who doesn't love a book with a heartthrobe called Adrian ;)

by Nyrae Dawn 
Release Date: May 6th, 2014

This new adult, male/male romance will capture the audience who fell in love with Nyrae Dawn's Games Trilogy.

Brandon Chase has always defined himself by one thing: football. He loves the game, but struggles with his attraction for his best friend Alec Andrews. Alec thinks it'll work out as long as they're together, but Brandon can't choose between their feelings and his fear of losing his spot on the team. Rather than deal with it, he tells Alec goodbye. 

A year and a half later, Alec has finally moved on with his life until he finds out Brandon's been hurt. Unable to deny his feelings for Brandon, Alec offers to help him train for his senior year and push for the NFL draft.

But as they spend the summer together, the two can't deny their attraction--the rush they feel when they're together is even stronger now and neither wants to walk away. Can Alec come out to his family, and Brandon come to terms with being a gay football player? Either way, there'll be consequences both have to be ready to face. 

Donna's thoughts: I've never really branched out in the whole m/m world, well except JR Ward's Lover at Last, so I'm eager to read more. So why not start with something from Nyrae Dawn. I'm excited! =)
