In an alternate modern-day Seattle, empath Reece has to team up with empath hunter Grayson when an anti-empath politican is killed. This trilogy opener sets up a very slow-burn romance with crackling tension. I've read it twice already. Banter, fast-moving plot, exciting twists, and fascinating characters.

It feels like I have read every Pride and Prejudice retelling that exists. So it is my expert opinion when I say this is one of the best. Take P&P and make it queer and about publishing in NYC. Make sisters into a group of queer roommates. Make Mr. Darcy a hot butch lesbian. It's fun, it's steamy, it's romantic—and you need to read it.

You Bring the Distant Near is a powerful multi-generational YA tale of the women of one Indian American family. The novel is rich in character development of all of the women, and it builds for a funny and emotional story of family, love, activism, cultural identity, and more. All five women captured my whole heart, and I think they will capture yours too.
