    Summary

    Blake hated the summer. It meant being home, working in a shitty (un-airconditioned) ice cream truck, and dealing with human tourists. That's until one of the tourists throws her for a bit of a loop. Captivated by a charming smile and eyes that speak to her soul, Blake sees the start of something different with Yang. She just has to take that leap of faith, and hope it pays off.

    (Bumbleby Summer Romance! It's gonna be fun, I promise! Bees always endgame.)

    Summary

    Theft, public mischief, destruction of property, vandalism, trespassing, more theft, and some extortion to tie it all together. Beau thought she had quite the impressive rap sheet for a 20-year-old winemaker's daughter.

    Of her original 1,000 court-ordered hours of community service, only 100 hours remain when a new offender begins attending the program: a tall, brooding woman with a mane of black-and-white hair. There is something about her that pulls like a gravitational force, and Beau finds herself being drawn into orbit.

    Summary

    She could have stayed here forever, fighting house fires and responding to traffic accidents. She sniffs and lets herself be buried in a bear hug, crushed between the familiar smell of aftershave and firehoses. She could have stayed here forever, but she has a plane ticket to California and the small life she’s built here already packed up, promises she made herself still left to keep.

    Summary

    It had started with two text messages, appearing as if by magic on Blake’s phone one morning.

    8:00 AM - Hi Blake, this is Weiss.
    8:00 AM - I’m getting married in a month and a half, and I’d like you to be my maid of honor.
    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
    After four years of no contact with Ruby, Weiss, or Yang, can Blake handle being in the wedding party? Can she handle seeing Yang again, after everything that's happened?

    Summary

    Sometimes the darkness she crossed an ocean and a continent to escape sneaks between the cracks and threatens to drag Blake down. Sometimes she feels like she’s speaking in a different language, or walks on a slightly different plane of existence from the people around her. Ilia says Blake is doing ok— but if she is, why is it so hard for her to talk to the beautiful girl who comes into the coffee shop? And why can’t she find a model for her final thesis portfolio?

    Yang clings fiercely to her public image, even the not-so-flattering parts of it. She does her best to ignore her sister and Pyrrha, who tell her that she deserves something more than just living day to day. The accident that marked the end of her old life and the start of the new left painful scars on her body and her heart. Maybe life is better if it’s simple.
    She’s about to find out that being friends (or something more) with a strange, cute barista is about as far from simple as she can get.

    When you get down to it, we all have our faults. It’s what you do with them that people remember.
