Favorite Quote: "I understand now, Dez," he whispered sleepily. "I understand the hand thing."

When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.
Except there’s something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she’ll turn to dust if he touches her. It’s not until Dez’s father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there’s more to this boy—and her father’s “law firm”—than she realized.

Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation—an organization devoted to collecting “special” kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons—his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. The two team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they’re caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe.
A secret Kale will kill to protect.
(Excerpt from author site)

Deznee Cross is an adrenaline junkie. When she comes across a mysterious boy hiding in the woods, the only thing she can think of is what a rush it will be when her Dad sees him and flips out. Only Dez miscalculates her Dad’s reaction when he already seems to know who Kyle is and attempts to shoot him. Dez and Kale escape only to find themselves chased by a group of men bent on capturing and returning Kale to where he came from. Kale explains to Dez about the Denazen Corporation and her father’s work for them. According to Kyle, corporation is nothing more then a breeding program for genetically enhanced teenagers, called Sixes, who are used in covert operations. Kale escaped with the hopes of finding the only other Six who ever got away from Denazen. Kale is especially valuable to Denazen because of his power-death by touch. Dez uses her contacts to verify Kyle’s story and soon finds herself embroiled in a war that will pit her against her own father.
