Description

In the future, only one rule will matter:
Don’t. Ever. Peek.
Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed — arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die.
Melissa WestAri knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know — especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.

Excerpt:

"My eyes fly open.
He hovers above me as light as air. A bright glow encircles him. His eyes are closed. A
sweet smile rests on his perfect face. Another drop hits my cheek, and I glance up to see his hair
shiny and wet, with beads of water gliding down his blond strands like leaves after an April rain.
I can’t look away. I want to reach out to him. Touch his face. My heart beats, beats, beats
inside my chest. Until it stops.
My Ancient is Jackson Locke." (Page 6)
