Her cell mate Dios knows deep down Florida is hiding a violent personality. Dios’s obsession with Florida begins a violent cat & mouse game through pandemic locked down LA that can only end in bloodshed. 

๐ŸŽงFourth Wing- booksgram made me read it. Harry Potter+Game of Thrones+enemies to lovers wide open door romance. The dragons were cool.
