Good girl Ashton is tired of being good, tired of impressing her parents and tired playing ideal girlfriend to Sawyer Vincent. Sawyer is perfect, a regular Prince Charming, but when he leaves town for the summer, it’s his cousin Beau who catches Ashton’s eye. Beau is the hottest guy she’s ever seen, and even though he’s a bad boy Ashton is drawn to him.
Beau loves his cousin like a brother, so the last thing he wants to do is make a move on Sawyer’s girl, he knows Ashton is off-limits. He does his best to keep his distance, although he’s been in love with her forever, but when Ashton wants to rekindle their childhood friendship Beau just can't say no.
Ashton and Beau don’t want to hurt Sawyer. But the more they try to stay away from each other, the more intense their urges become. It’s getting way too hard to resist
The 1st wave hits and then there is only darkness. The 2nd, wave hits and only the lucky escape. After the 3rd, wave only the unlucky survive and after the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
It is now the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them, the things that look human but are not. The "beings" who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. The ones who have scattered Earth’s last survivors.
To be alone is to be alive, Cassie truly believes this, until she meets Evan Walker. Mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. Cassie must choose between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death.
