Disaster strikes North America, leaving people without the most basic amenities. Lana 
is taken from her home and forced to accept a world full of infected, violent beings. Life as humans know it is over, and in its place is a constant fear of death, paranoia, and savagery. 

The mission in this new world is simple: survive. But survival comes at a cost few can bear. 

As Lana and Jim find more survivors, new threats surface, their past decisions haunting them as they pass through abandoned towns. Armed with nothing but the pack on her back and a long-handled knife, Lana fears whether or not they'll make it to their destination--or if she'll perish along the way.


5/5 Stars

**I received an ARC from author in exchange for an honest review.**

The Last Legacy held me from start to finish. I first read it before it was edited and absolutely loved it. This isn't like any of the other books Taylor Lavati has published. Her books keep getting better and better. 

Lana was kidnapped by a group of men who were clearing houses for food. One man stands out and helps her, Jim. He's got a past that he doesn't want to talk about and Lana is bound and determined to learn more about him and what life was like before the bombs destroyed the world. The begin to fall for each other, but the world isn't easy anymore. As more survivors are found, Jim and Lana fight to protect the group. 

This book had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. It was a definite page turner. When ever there was a new update to the first edition, I would be the first to read it and comment on it. This book has it all: a wonderful plot, mesmerizing plot twists, compelling characters, and terrifying creatures. It's a world full of unexpected twists and turns. 

 *Recommended for readers over 18. Mature content that may be offensive to sensitive readers. Language, sexual situations, violence.

The Kiss That Launched 1,000 Gifs by Sheralyn Pratt

Each weekday from 2:00-4:00 p.m., Grace and Ashton cohost Battle of the Sexes, a radio program arguing the he-said/she-said issues of the day. Their fiery debates often have listeners wondering if there’s more to their relationship than just talk, even though Grace has been dating Phillip, Mr. Tall, Dark, and Perfect, since long before she ever met Ashton Miller.
Yet when news comes that Battle of the Sexes is on the bubble for cancellation, Grace and Ashton need to step up their efforts to engage their audience to keep the show alive. When a charity organization approaches them and proposes that the two of them kiss for a fund raiser, Grace and Ash agree to kiss for a good cause. A kiss is just a kiss, right?
