Eternal Life is To Die For.

Seventeen year old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP—a genetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on prime water-front property along-side other equally beautiful people with extended life spans.

Her brother Liam is missing.

Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they’ve created between those who have and those who don’t. He doesn’t like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically.

Zoe’s carefree life takes a traumatic turn. She’s in trouble and it turns out that Noah, the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her.

What doesn't kill you ... 

Zoe Vanderveen is on the run with her captor turned rescuer, Noah Brody. 

They're in love. 

Or at least that’s what he tells her. Her memories have returned but her feelings are dreamlike—thin and fleeting. Her heart can’t be trusted. Just look at what happened with Taylor Blake.

Senator Vanderveen’s new team of cyborg agents are in hot pursuit, and a reward for their capture is broadcast nationwide. Record breaking cold and snow hinder their escape. Someone dies helping them.

And their fight for survival has only begun.
I found his lips and kissed him hard, desperation erupting from my soul. I peeled off his jacket and pushed him onto his back on the bed.

“Zoe?” he said.

“It’s okay.” I kissed him across his chin and down the curve of his neck. “I want this.” My heart beat wildly and I breathed deeply of the scent of his skin.

He responded like I knew he would, kissing me in return, my forehead, my cheeks my lips, deep and urgent. I pulled on his t-shirt, and ran my fingers across his abs. He tensed and my fingers moved slowly, over each ab muscle, one, two, three…. A soft moan escaped his lips. My fingers reached further down. He clasped my hand with his, stopping me.

“What?” I said, staring at his chiseled face. His brow was pulled down in a frown, and his eyes were closed tight like he was in pain. “What’s wrong?”

“We can’t do this.”
