Like any other Saturday night, Gabby Perez and her best friend, Maria, are out dancing. But this isn’t just another night. When a mysterious stranger warns Gabby their drinks have been drugged, she hurries Maria home. Sure enough, the next day, Maria can’t remember a thing. Gabby’s shaken by their close call. And she’s not going to stay quiet about it. She opens up the airwaves on her radio show and discovers an even worse truth: the guy who drugged them was going to force them into prostitution. Then Gabby’s friend Bree never makes it home from a party, and Gabby fears the worst. Gabby reaches out to the guy who saved her, the gorgeous stranger she knows only as X. As they dive into the seedy underworld of Miami, searching for Bree, they can’t ignore their undeniable attraction. Until Gabby discovers the truth about who X really is and the danger that surrounds him. Can their love survive the light of day?
Though I am not quite sure whether this one will be considered as a YA or an NA title, it for sure sounds intriguing. It sounds like it's part thriller, part love story, which sounds exactly like something I love. The whole prostitution aspect is something I haven't really come across before in contemporary YA, which kind of makes me think that this probably verges more on New Adult than Young Adult. But whatever genre categorization it receives, I am in!
