Book Summary from Amazon:
In this breathless story of impossible love, perfection comes at a deadly cost.
For Davis Morrow, perfection is a daily reality. Like all Priors, Davis has spent her whole life primed to be smarter, stronger, and more graceful than the lowly Imperfects, or “Imps.” A fiercely ambitious ballerina, Davis is only a few weeks away from qualifying for the Olympiads and finally living up to her mother’s legacy when she meets Cole, a mysterious boy who leaves her with more questions each time he disappears.
Davis has no idea that Cole has his own agenda, or that he’s a rising star in the FEUDS, an underground fighting ring where Priors gamble on Imps. Cole has every reason to hate Davis―her father’s campaign hinges on the total segregation of the Imps and Priors―but despite his best efforts, Cole finds himself as drawn to Davis as she is to him.
Then Narxis, a deadly virus, takes its hold–and Davis’s friends start dying. When the Priors refuse to acknowledge the epidemic, Davis has no one to turn to but Cole. Falling in love was never part of their plan, but their love may be the only thing that can save her world…in Avery Hastings’s Feuds.
Book Summary from Amazon:
When seventeen-year-old Rory McShane steps off the train in East Hampton, it’s as if she’s entered another universe, one populated by impossibly beautiful people wearing pressed khakis and driving expensive cars. She’s signed on to be a summer errand girl for the Rules — a wealthy family with an enormous beachfront mansion. Upon arrival, she’s warned by other staff members to avoid socializing with the family, but Rory soon learns that may be easier said than done.Stifled by her friends and her family’s country club scene, seventeen-year-old Isabel Rule, the youngest of the family, embarks on a breathless romance with a guy whom her parents would never approve of. It’s the summer for taking chances, and Isabel is bringing Rory along for the ride.But will Rory’s own summer romance jeopardize her friendship with Isabel? And, after long-hidden family secrets surface, will the Rules’ picture-perfect world ever be the same?
This looks like a beach-read type of book – good timing, Book Case Club!
Verdict: I’m somewhat excited to read these books. They have mixed reviews and each of them are the first in a two-part series, so I’m a little cautious about getting involved… but we’ll see if I like them! (My current rule for deciding when to end a book is if I hit the halfway point and I realize I don’t care about what happens to any of the characters.)
I think Book Case Club is a great book subscription if you are looking for value. It would cost me approximately $25 to buy these books from Amazon, so to get them for $15 is a great deal. To provide that value, I imagine BookCase.Club gets deals on books that aren’t new releases. (These were both originally published in 2014) If you don’t need the most recent books, I think this could be a perfect book subscription.
