Editorial Reviews


"Defcon Darcy is my favorite in the series, but not only that, it is my favorite YA novel to date. A.J has the perfect voice to channel the perfect teen for pure entertainment, and to see it all come alive in this book was total joy!" - Lila Rose, USA Today Bestselling author of the Hawks Motorcycle Club Series.

"A. J. Lape has truly established herself as not only an extremely talented, 5-star mystery writer, but also a true master of romantic, gut-wrenching novel writing. I will go on record saying this book will knock any Nicholas Sparks book out of the water." - Julie Cassar, Amazon Bestselling Author of the Ruby Blue Series.
"This book, like the others, are super funny. Unlike the others, it also ripped my heart out."  Up All Night Book Addict, Top 500 Amazon Reviewer

From the Author

The Amazon bestselling Darcy Walker Series has been compared to Veronica Mars meets Stephanie Plum meets Pretty Little Liars. All novels are written as stand-alone novels, but a backstory is woven into each book. Reading order of the high school years is Grade A Stupid, No Brainer, 100 Proof Stud, DEFCON Darcy & Foolproof. After that are the Side Hustle mysteries.

Clean mature YA series for ages 13 and up due to graphic crime scenes.
Side Hustle mysteries are a little grittier with big people problems.
