Elijah Hamilton, the lead singer of his buddies' teen metal band Ride Out, has an image to uphold. But when he's dragged to a local musical, he meets Kristen Cartwright. He knows that she's the powerhouse who can simultaneously save his band and kill his hard rock reputation, so he promises the rest of the band to keep their relationship strictly professional, no matter how hard it is.

Seraphina

Seraphina is half-dragon, and in a kingdom of deep mistrust between humans and dragons despite the peace treaty, she is in constant danger as a musician of the royal court. But when a member of the royal family is murdered and all clues points to the dragons, she discovers, along with the prince and a guard, hints of a plot to destroy the already fragile peace.

This is one of the most unique dragon books you'll ever read. This book was so lovely and charming. I loved the characters and the world building, the story was touching and the main character relatable and believable.

It’s just a simple game of dice between Love and Death. Love is personified as a man and Death is personified by a woman. They each pick a player and roll the dice, the players have to choose each other over everything else or Death will take her player. Death has always won the game, since the beginning.
