This month, the burgeoning new adult genre continues to expand. The best seller lists possess more variety, as new adult authors mix it up and cater to an increasingly diverse audience. As a result, readers can sample from a multiplicity of intriguing plot lines—from suspenseful to erotic to heartwarming.
First, there are the books that make your heart pound. They're filled to the brim with danger and suspense. It's not just a question of whether or not the main characters' love will survive but if they will survive. In One Day, which is the third and final installment in The Private Club series by J.S. Cooper and Helen Cooper, the heroine Meg works at a club owned by a wealthy, mysterious man named Greyson. Meg isn't sure that she can trust Greyson, and her worst fears seem to be confirmed when her roommate Nancy goes missing. Similarly, in Fierce by Nina Levine, an innocent country girl named Harlow falls for the vice president of a motorcycle club. Scott is a dangerous man with a checkered past, but when Harlow's life is suddenly in danger, he may be the only one who can save her. Finally, Unravel by Calia Read is a psychological thriller about a young woman named Naomi trapped in a psychiatric ward and told that she's crazy for believing that she has a lover named Max. Is she crazy, or is there a more sinister plot at work? Naomi's questionable reliability as a narrator kept readers enthralled and flipping pages.
