Distortion by Lucie Smoker





Artist Adele Proust is over her ex, activist JACK THOMAS—well, sort of. When he climbs a 64-story bank tower, she isn't moved. When he exposes that bank's shady foreclosures, she isn't impressed. Adele knows Jack, damn jerk. He's up to something else.

I get this feeling whenever I read a book with a child in it playing with a toy.
