Like No Other

Like No Other

by Una LaMarche

Devorah is a consummate good girl who has never challenged the ways of her strict Hasidic upbringing. Jaxon is a fun-loving, book-smart nerd who has never been comfortable around girls (unless you count his four younger sisters). They've both spent their entire lives in Brooklyn, on opposite sides of the same street. Their paths never cross...until, one day, they do.

When a hurricane strikes, the pair becomes stranded in an elevator together, where fate leaves them no choice but to make a connection. Though their relationship is strictly forbidden, Devorah and Jax arrange secret meetings and risk everything to be together. But how much are they ultimately willing to give up?
