Eden Rising (Eden Rising Trilogy Book 1) by Andrew Cunningham

“The Earth died in less than a minute. Maybe that’s an exaggeration. It’s not like the planet ceased to exist altogether. It just seemed like it. Cities were reduced to rubble. Millions of people died that day. I’ve since been told that 95% of the Earth’s human population was wiped out. I don’t know if that’s true—I mean, who can know that for sure? It’s not like we still have any of the technology that we once used to determine such things. But I do know that it was almost empty of people—live ones, that is.”

Thus begins the journey of Ben and Lila, two ordinary teenagers forced to rise to extraordinary heights when faced with a world that has suddenly and inexplicably died. Dealing with the sorrow of all they have lost, but the love they have found in each other, they set off on an odyssey that will bring them to the limits of human endurance and face to face with the frailty of their very existence. From the extreme violence of many of the surviving humans toward one another, to a world physically falling apart at the seams, Ben and Lila are determined to make it through the devastation in their quest for a place to quietly share their life together. In the process, they have to become as violent as the world around them in order to survive, while struggling to hold onto the humanity that will keep them sane.

The Cause and Cure Is You by Jessica N. Watkins

The moment that Keys first saw Ivy, it was a moment straight out of the movies. He would have never imagined that every moment since would be a straight up fantasy. Keys had been the typical hood boy for most of his life; selling dope, getting money and getting bitches upon bitches upon bitches. The fact that he had survived shootings and Dream’s jealous wrath was a miracle from above, and he grew tired of forcing God’s hand. So, last year, he decided to settle down. He quit the dope game and focused on his girlfriend, Dream. Then, one rainy night, he met Ivy, and his life changed. And it wasn’t that typical change that leads to a man going astray. If only it could have been that simple. After meeting Ivy, Keys’ life literally went from the normal day-to-day, to mystery, fantasia and the realization that forever will be a very long time for him. Ivy, however, is very much living in the real world. She knows that these premature feelings for Keys are just a rebound from her failed relationship with Travis, and she has sense enough to know two things; one, the last thing that she needs to be focused on is a man, especially one with an undeserving, bitch like Dream, and, two, she had never known that she was starving, until she tasted Keys. Despite their incredible connection, both Keys and Ivy take great lengths to distance themselves from this fairytale-like chemistry between them. However, when destiny has designed two people to be together there is nothing that can stop it… except the threat of death. Since the moment they met, Keys had been her superman, and since the moment that she stepped into his life, Ivy had been his kryptonite. From the moment he met her, he felt a responsibility to save her, but what lengths will Keys go to save himself?
