I started reading The Gender Game by Bella Forrest a couple of days ago and it is so good that I thought I'd share a little about it before I finished it!
If you're looking for a Young Adult/coming-of-age post-apocalyptic/adventure read, then I recommend giving The Gender Game a go. The idea of Matriarchal vs Patriarchal based ruling is interesting. What if women ruled one region and enforced law and society roles in a way that would traditionally (rather stereotypically) be considered a "woman's place"? And what if men had a region of the same? It's really not that crazy of a concept...it's real life parts of the world. This book take that idea and steps it up a notch and gives a side-by-side view of two extreme situations.
Women rule the East. Men rule the West.
Welcome to the lands of Matrus and Patrus.
Ever since the disappearance of her beloved younger brother, Violet's life has been consumed by an anger she struggles to control. Already a prisoner to her own nation, now she has been sentenced to death for her crimes.
But one decision could save her life.
To enter the kingdom of Patrus, where men rule and women submit.
Everything about the patriarchy is dangerous for a rebellious girl like Violet. She cannot break the rules if she wishes to stay alive.
But abiding by rules has never been Violet's strong suit.
When she is thrust into more danger than she could have ever predicted, Violet is forced to sacrifice many things in the forbidden kingdom ... including forbidden love.
In a world divided by gender, only the strongest survive...

Blurb: She's in for the fight of her life...with the man who only wants to be her lover.
Fighter Mia Anderson has faced the dark side of life and survived. But just getting by is no longer enough. To fund her new life with her baby sister, she's determined to beat the reigning king of the male fighters in New York's underground MMA circuit, Tray "Fox" Knox.
Tray refuses to fight a woman, until he learns Mia's tougher than anyone he has ever known. He soon realizes he wants more from her than blows and blood, and he's willing to hit below the belt to get it. He'll fight her, but if he wins, she spends the night in his bed. All night long, his rules. No tapping out.
Mia agrees, certain that he'll lose. What she doesn't realize is that Tray loves to fight dirty...and that this match may end up being the most important one of their lives.

Aglets are angry
A tongue speaks, but no one hears
The sole lost its soul
