Excerpt + Giveaway: Final Life by Rose Garcia

Eight lives. You’d think Dominique would get it right, but she’s failed every time. Now on her final life, Dominique must discover the secrets of her past before confronting the Transhuman hunter who wants to kill her for the last time. Farrell, a mysterious Transhuman protector, and Trent, a hot guy from her school, want to help her. But it’s up to her to get it right this time—or she’ll be dead. For real.

Excerpt One:

We sat on the bed. After a moment, Trent sighed and lay down on his back, hands behind his head. I did the same. We stared at the ceiling while the music poured over us.
My thoughts turned to the conversation I had just had with my parents. And you, my daughter, are in grave danger. Everything in my body told me to leave, but I ignored it. I wanted to be here with Trent because here I was a normal girl. Not a girl with crazy parents and a crazy guy living in her house.
"So what were you doing at the lake?" he asked.
Panic seized me. I brought my hand up to my hair and began twisting. There was no way I could tell him what my parents had said. An old Earth? With a whole race of beings before humans called Transhumans? Pures and Tainted? My life in danger? He’d think me nuts, and I wouldn’t blame him. "I needed to think."
He angled his body closer to mine. Our eyes locked. The soft music encouraged me to want him. The thunder outside and rain on the rooftop forced me closer. He took my hand, untwisting the hair from my fingers.
I stared into his deep, sapphire eyes a moment when my thoughts filled with Farrell. But why? Why did I keep thinking of him? I looked away, avoiding what I thought might be a kiss. He released my hand and sat up. Even though I wanted to be normal and date a normal guy, it just wasn’t possible. And there was no way I could explain how wrong I was for him.
