This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then some thing interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
If you live in the states and have seen the news recently then you might know that it is hotter than hell here in the Pacific Northwest. It is unusual for us to get much above 90 in the summer and I don’t think it has been this hot since I moved here in the early 1990’s. So in honor of the heat, I wanted to pick a book this week that would reflect how bad it is here. And I think I found the perfect one.

Maya has had a price on her head from the day she escaped the TechCorps. Genetically engineered for genius and trained for revolution, there’s only one thing she can’t do—forget.
Gray has finally broken free of the Protectorate, but he can’t escape the time bomb in his head. His body is rejecting his modifications, and his months are numbered.
When Maya’s team uncovers an operation trading in genetically enhanced children, she’ll do anything to stop them. Even risk falling back into the hands of the TechCorps.
And Gray has found a purpose for his final days: keeping Maya safe.
I read the first book in this series, Deal with the Devil, last year and really enjoyed it. It has a pretty steamy romance, so I am pretty sure this one will also be hot and steamy. Hopefully by the time I read this next month, the weather will have returned to normal. But if not then at least I will have the Devil keeping me company when the world is hotter than hell outside.
