Totally Wasted (Wasted Series #3)
by C. Elizabeth Vescio Publication Date: December 8, 2015 Publisher: Luna Station Press
Welcome to family therapy, Fairholm style. When Osiris headquarters fell, Frankie ran away with Spark Dawson, hoping the open ocean would wash the chaos of her life away. The Nameless, and her own primal urges, soon intrude and before Frankie knows it, she and Spark are traveling to Hong Kong to face what’s left of the company. There she finds her entire family under the protection of the Sha Lù. Kat and Addi are pissed, Nero has given up, Judah won’t let anyone leave, and her mother and aunts are getting along for once in their lives. Things are weird. Because Frankie’s life is never complicated enough, Spark becomes dead set on uncovering the deadly secrets Judah hid from him–and gets more than anyone bargained for in the answers he discovers. Tensions are high and morality is low as Frankie starts unraveling the threads that bind them all together. As old ghosts haunt her thoughts and new enemies dance just outside her reach, she has choices to make that determine the future of everyone she knows. Now all she has to do is convince everyone she knows what she’s doing. After all, if Osiris doesn’t fight the Nameless, they’ll all have to hide behind the Sha Lù for the rest of their lives...and the wine supply is running out.

Excerpt from TOTALLY WASTED
“I don’t like you,” I frowned. “Because I’m a cop?” “It’s probably more about your personality,” I sat back and motioned for the waitress. “We probably both get that a lot,” he smiled. Stop smiling at me, you fucking prick. His smile made his greyish-green eyes brighten. That made him more likable. I didn’t want to like him. “What can I getcha darlin’?” the waitress asked. “I’ll take your breakfast plate, eggs scrambled,” I pointed to the menu. “An order of beignets and a Diet Coke.” I looked over at Hess. He was studying me. His left eyebrow arched. He might have been judging my order. “And for you, sir?” “Uh,” he shook his head. “Coffee… and a piece of apple pie.” “Scoop of vanilla on top?” she asked. “No thanks,” he replied. The waitress took our menus, and I leaned back in the booth. “You’re a breakfast for lunch kind of girl,” he commented. I wasn’t going to allow this guy to make cute comments at me. “What kind of loser gets apple pie without ice cream?” I snorted. Hess’ smile faded, as he looked down at his hands. My kind of humor is totally wasted on cops. “What happened to my brother, Ms. Fairholm?” I frowned at him again. He was going to get right down to business. “Is that why you followed me here? You think I’m here on fucking vacation and have more time to talk to you?” “Ms. Fairholm-” “You can call me Frankie, Detective Hess,” I said. “I mean you’re stalking me, so we might as well be on a first-name basis.” “I’m not stalking you,” he replied. “And you can call me Blake.”
