I need help with number 2 too!! I wish I could help you with the first one Erika, but I don't read a lot of SCI-FI. I'm going to read Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout . It is a standalone, but an adult spin off of the Lux series that I love. You could consider starting the Lux series Obsidian (Lux, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout . I don't believe you've read it and it is fantastic.


message 17: by Erika (new)

Erika | 9482 comments No I haven't. I'm not really into sci-fi so I think that's why I'm so hesitant. But, I'll look into it. Thanks Chris


message 18: by Vega_girl (last edited May 22, 2015 09:49AM) (new)

Vega_girl | 6624 comments You will love the Lux Series!!! I know the whole alien thing is a put off, but the writing and the characters will make you forget that hang up!!
