    Summary

    "Across from Alina sat perhaps the most dangerous person on the east coast – aside from herself of course. Her eyes roved over his perfectly styled jet-black hair, his Armani suit that was clearly tailored just to his size, his long fingers steepled in front of him – motionless but lethal all the same.

    Were it not for years of practice hiding her emotions, she might have shivered at the sight of him. He certainly lived up to the hype – dark, beautiful, and very, very dangerous. She met his inky black eyes with her own. They sat in silence for what seemed like an eternity – sizing each other up. After all, it wasn’t often that two leaders of the most powerful crime families sat down for tea and some small talk."

    Mob AU in which Alina is a badass, she needs Aleksander's help, and Aleksander's hard facade crumbles as he falls for the little crime lord.

    Summary

    Rey volunteers at a rehabilitation facility to read to the blind. She’s loved reading and books for longer than she can remember. She finds that she loves reading to others even more so. However, she’s suddenly thrown into the headspace of trauma patient Ben Solo, who has a knack for upending everything she thinks she knows about books and the power of the written word…as well as a few other things.

     

    Rey volunteers to read to blind trauma patient Ben Solo. The ride is angsty, poetic, and filled with literary favorites like Dracula and Pride and Prejudice…and a whole bunch of other metaphors for falling in love.
