Stories that don’t involve highschool

I began reading again on Episode and have gotten many requests to read stories. Many of these stories are based on a high school setting and I really am not a fan of these types of stories anymore. Please recommend me stories that have a more mature setting and I’m open to reading any genre


Title: Light After Dark
Author: Raven Writes :slight_smile:
Description: After the death of the love of your life, you vow to never love again. Will a new found friendship with a kind stranger finally allow you to heal? Or will it too end in tragedy?

Hi! My story has 41 chapters and is ongoing!
My Insta- @Gabi.episode

The chapters do get longer. I wrote the beginning chapters a while ago, so the editing gets better later.

Description: Leah and Xavier were abandoned on The Island as babies. Together, they try to figure out why. Along the away, they discover even more than they ever could have anticipated.
