Hold Me Like a Breath by  Tiffany Schmidt   book cover

Penelope Landlow has grown up with the knowledge that almost anything can be bought or sold—including body parts. She’s the daughter of one of the three crime families that control the black market for organ transplants.

Penelope’s surrounded by all the suffocating privilege and protection her family can provide, but they can't protect her from the autoimmune disorder that causes her to bruise so easily.

And in her family's line of work no one can be safe forever.

All Penelope has ever wanted is freedom and independence. But when she’s caught in the crossfire as rival families scramble for prominence, she learns that her wishes come with casualties, that betrayal hurts worse than bruises, that love is a risk worth taking . . . and maybe she’s not as fragile as everyone thinks.


Hang on a minute… is this… it’s… a Princess and the Pea retelling?!

SOLD!!

I can’t wait for this, it sounds so good! A black market trading body parts? Yep, I'm intrigued! I love retellings, but I don’t remember reading a Princess and the Pea retelling before. If I did it mustn’t have been very good, as I can’t remember it!


What are you waiting on this week? Leave a link to your post so I can stop by!
