Summary
"Serena Singh is tired of everyone telling her what she should want-and she is ready to prove to her mother, her sister, and the aunties in her community that a woman does not need domestic bliss to have a happy life. Things are going according to plan for Serena. She is smart, confident, and just got a kick-ass new job at a top advertising firm in Washington, D.C. Even before her younger sister got married in a big, traditional wedding, Serena knew her own dreams did not include marriage or children. But with her mother constantly encouraging her to be more like her sister, Serena can not understand why her parents refuse to recognize that she and her sister want completely different experiences out of life. A new friendship with her co-worker Ainsley comes as a breath of fresh air, challenging Serena's long-held beliefs about the importance of self-reliance. She has been so focused on career success that she has let all of her hobbies and close friendships fall by the wayside. As Serena reconnects with her family and friends-including her ex-boyfriend-she learns letting people in can make her happier than standing all on her own"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
Penelope Landlow has grown up with the knowledge that almost anything can be bought or sold -- including body parts. She's the daughter of one of the three crime families that control the black market for organ transplants. Penelope's surrounded by all the suffocating privilege and protection her family can provide, but they can't protect her from the autoimmune disorder that causes her to bruise so easily. Penny is considered too "delicate" to handle the family business, or even to step foot outside their estate. All Penelope has ever wanted is independence -- until she's suddenly thrust into the dangerous world all alone, forced to stay one step ahead of her family's enemies. As she struggles to survive the power plays of rival crime families, she learns dreams come with casualties, betrayal hurts worse than bruises, and there's nothing she won't risk for the people she loves.
