She gave her life to PeachCorps. After graduating top of her class, Liza landed the job of her dreams, the man of her dreams and the apartment of her dreams. To say her life was in perfect working order would be an understatement. Despite being optimistic, she was a realist to the core, so she knew this was bound to happen at some point.
Of course, it all just had to happen at once.
She was in the midst of the worst day of her life and she asked herself what else could go wrong. Not only did her boyfriend walk out, claiming Liza was boring him, but she screwed up one single number. It was a number she knew well. I mean, numbers were her thing.
The stupid profit and loss sheet should have been a no-brainer to Liza. Maybe thatâs why she felt so lax about it. She didnât bother going back over her math. Most of it she had done in Excel so the computer did the work. But she was nothing if not confident.
PeachCorps was confident as well. And she guessed that was why they took her sheet and didnât bother double checking and going back over her work. It was stupid on their part. You should always check work, but Liza had never screwed up. Until today.
On the third column of the sheet, she fudged a number. By accident, her lazy finger hit six instead of five and every single column and row after that was affected by it. When PeachCorps presented the form to their investors, hell broke loose. And there was one person to blameâLiza.
So now, she sat on her front stoop, her head in her hands, wondering why she bothered to wake up today. Her boyfriend was gone. Her job was gone. And she guessed, unless she found a new job, sheâd have to give up her apartment too.

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
