Chaos by Christine O’Neil
Darker Days by Jus Accardo

My name is Maggie Raynard. After sixteen years being just plain me, suddenly, when I lose my temper, my fingers become weapons of mass destruction. Turns out I'm a semi-god, descended from Aphrodite. Sounds cool in theory, but when I accidentally put my ex-boyfriend in a coma, things go downhill pretty fast.

Now some new guy named Mac Finnegan has made it his mission in life to continually piss me off. I'm stuck learning how to use my new powers while also dealing with regular high school problems, and with this annoying and super-hot—guy all
up in my business, I'm about to flip out.

But it gets worse. I just learned there's this watchdog council of semis who keep an eye out for any bad apples. They think I'm the baddest one in the bunch and want to take me out before I do any more damage. My nemesis Mac might turn out to be my salvation, only he's got secrets of his own...and they may just kill us both.

Darker Days
A little sin can be deadly...
Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business.
Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course...
When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.
Seven deadly ones, in fact.
They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they're recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing...
There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.
From Chaos:
I stared out the fogged window of Mac's car, watching the ice-crusted trees pass in a blur. Sad that, with only a few words, he'd managed to get me into his car. Not because every time he got close, my heart beat triple time. Or because he smelled like sin and summer rain. And definitely not because he made my fingertips itch with the need to touch. I’d gone because I was basically a pedophile’s wet dream. The whole "I lost my puppy, can you get in my van to help me find it" thing? I'd be all over that like Lady Gaga on a meat dress. Sucker.
I sat in the plush bucket seats, sulking, wondering if I'd managed to get myself into yet another sticky situation—something I'd clearly been on a quest to perfect lately. Mac had said what he wanted to talk about was private and he would tell me if I went with him. But we were halfway to my house, and he still hadn't uttered a word.
I'm not the begging type, so I resigned myself to a silent but warm ride. Maybe he really was a psycho-stalker. I mean, I'd called him that a bunch in my head, but I hadn't actually thought it thought. I was just toying with the idea that he might be setting me up to make a kayak out of my skin when we pulled into my driveway and he finally spoke.
"I need to know what happened with Eric that night.”
My heart stuttered in my chest and I dragged my gaze from the not-so-interesting-anymore window and stared at his tense profile. His lean jaw worked as he waited for me to respond.
I didn’t bother explaining why and made sure to use my strongest outside voice so he would know it wasn’t up for negotiation.
“I know what you are, Maggie. And I’m afraid I’ll have to insist you answer my question.”
“And I’m afraid this conversation is over.” I moved to open the door, but his hand closed over my wrist and fury came rushing in.
"The last boy who touched me like that is laying in a hospital bed right now hooked up to a catheter and shitting into a bag. If I were you, I'd let go."
I had to get out of there—it was literally life or death—and although the harshness of my words made my stomach heave, I didn't take them back.
And he didn't let me go.
"Go for it, Magpie. Hit me with your best shot." He squeezed my wrist tighter.
I don't know what happened next. Same as that night with Eric. One minute I was me. Frazzled but in control to some pathetic degree. In control enough not to try and kill someone. The next, I was like a wild animal, caged too long without food. With a snarl, a tiny part of the thing inside me broke loose and took. Like sucking in a breath, it drew the love from whatever I touched into me. Only this time, it was like trying to take from a brick wall. I could still feel Mac's energy pulsing enticingly under his skin, but there was a very real block between us.
I gasped, jerking my hand away and staring at it like it was a five-headed snake. The rage vacated in such a rush, it left me weak, and I thanked the gods I hadn't hurt him.
Hell, I wished I could take credit for that, but if I could have hurt him I would have, and that scared the hell out of me. He stared at me, totally alive, totally unharmed. In fact, he looked pretty self-satisfied and blasé about the whole thing.
Suddenly, all the outside pieces of the puzzle clicked into place. I didn't know the whole of it, but the perimeter was there. Mac Finnegan wasn't just an annoying guy at all. He was something…other.
Like me?
"What are you?" I whispered.
