The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't.

  • Anti-Stepbrother
    Author:Tijan
    He told me to \'settle, girl.\' He asked if \'something was wrong with me?\' He said I was an ‘easy target.’ That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks. I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha. He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother. Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming. I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?

Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she\'s crushed on since forever. Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she\'s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn\'t an issue, considering Roth has no soul. But when Layla discovers she\'s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne… it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.
